Welcome to the Sligo Branch of the Manchester United Supporters Club, we will update you with all the latest news from the Sligo Branch of Manchester United Supporters Club.
Premier League: United got off to the worst possible start to the new season with a 1-3 defeat at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday. United were way off the pace and fell behind in the 7th minute. VAR didn't help the cause when Palace were awarded a penalty for a handball, De Gea saved but VAR ordered a retake as De Gea had stepped off his line, which Zaha slotted home. New signing Donny Van de Beek scored on his debut to give United a lifeline but Zaha added his second and Palace's third to kill off United.
Brighton away at 12.30 on Saturday is next.
League Cup: United traveled to Luton Town on Tuesday for their opening League Cup game. A penalty from Mata late in the first half and late goals in the second half from Rashford and Greenwood saw United win by 3-0. However the scoreline flatters United, Ole had mde 10 changes for this game and despite a good start United went flat and the level of play will have to improve.
United will now play Preston or Brighton in the next round on Tuesday or Wednesday 29/30 September.
