Premier League: United finally got their first home win on Saturday night with a 1-0 win at hom over West Brom. The pattern of recent games was there for all to see, United dominated and created some chances but it was still a below par performance. Martial and Rashford had good chances saved and shoul dhave scored. The referee awarded WBA a penalty at the start of the 2nd half after Fernandes seemed to foul one of there players. Thankfully he overturned his decision on reviewing the TV monitor. Mata earned United a penalty when his cross was blocked, Fernandes has his effort saved but the keeper was off his line and he scored the retake. WBA hit the bar but United held on.
Southampton away on Sunday is next.
Champions League: Matchday 4 was United get revenge over Basaksehir, for their defeat in Turkey, at OT on Tuesday with a 4-1 win. A brilliant strike by Fernandes fired United ahead early on and he added a 2nd when the Basaksehir keeper dropped a ball that he should have held onto. A great stong run by Rashford resulted in a penalty and Fernandes who was on a hattrick allowed Rashford take it and make it 3-0. Basaksehir scored with 15mins left and also hit the bar before Daniel James added a goal in injury time to secure the win.
A draw over PSG next week or v Leipzig the following week will secure a place in the knockout rounds.
League Cup: United followed up on the league victory over Brighton by beating them again in the League Cup on Wed 30 September by 3-0.
