So the Boss got it wrong. Ole Gunnar Solskjær, before the game assured us that with these two attacking teams, “It’s not going to be 0-0, I can guarantee it’s not going to be 0-0.” Although United had quite a few opportunities they kept fluffing the ball. In reality one could say it was a useful point. This was the first league meeting at Elland Road since October 2003. The Whites sat 10th in the table and had had an impressive run of form. They had beaten Manchester City and earned draws against Chelsea and Liverpool. United, of course, had seen off their threat at Old Trafford in style, winning 6-2 victory; but even with a rare full week to prepare during this busy schedule, they failed to breakthrough. Manchester City now only require two wins from their final five matches in order to clinch the Premier League title.
My Man of the Match is Aaron Wan-Bissaka. In my view he played one of his best games ever. He was creative and moved forward smoothly to help create good chances, particularly a good opportunity for Bruno Fernandes with an impressive low pass. A sharp, confident and impressive all round full-back’s performance
With Roma next up on Thursday in the Europa Cup, Paul Ince told Sky Sports: “It looks like Manchester United’s minds are on Thursday. There’s no energy, no urgency.”
On a final note, Burnley striker Chris Wood, who almost shocked United last week by ‘scoring’ within the first few seconds of the match, today scored a first half hat trick away at Wolves.
