2016/17 Premier League: Victory over Watford by 2-0 thanks to goals from Mata & Martial saw United move up to 5th place for a shot time at least. Liverpool's win at home to Spurs saw them go 5th and United drop back into 6th place. But, the good news is that United are 1point behind Liverpool and only 2 behind Arsenal & Spurs. We now have to wait till Sat 4th March for our next league game, at home to Bournemouth.
Europa League: United defeated Saint Etienne 3-0 in the 1st leg of the round of the last 32 in the Europa League, thanks to a hat-trick from Zlatan Ibrahimovic. We certainly got the rub of the green with the award of the free kick and penalty that the 1st & 3rd goals came from - maybe we were due a bit of luck. The game was a great occasion for the Pogba family, with Paul lining out for United and his older brother Florentin lining out for St Etienne. The 2nd leg is away on Wed 22nd Feb with a 5pm kick off.
FA Cup: United came from behind to defeat Blackburn Rovers 2-1 with Rashford and sub Ibrahimovic scoring the goals. United will have to travel to Stanford Bridge to face Chelsea in the quarter final on the weekend of 12th March.
League Cup: Despite our unbeaten run coming to an end, thanks to Hull City's 2-1 win in the 2nd leg, United progess to the final to play Southampton on Sunday the 26th February. It was a very poor preformance by United with the only bright spart coming from Pogba who scored to level the scores at 1-1. It will take a much better effort at Wembley for Jose to claim his first trophy as United manager.
