Never a team to do things the easy way, Manchester United really pushed that idea to the limit last night after a late Ashley Young goal saved United from sure defeat having surrendered a 2 goal lead.
United looked to be coasting after Danny Welbeck grabbed a brace inside 20 minutes but a period of meltdown in the second half saw United 3-2 down and on the brink of defeat at home in the Champions League for the first time since the 1-0 defeat to Besiktas in 2009.
But the script wasn’t finished and substitute Nani floated in a cross that Ashley Young nodded in to rescue a point for United in a game where our defensive frailties were continually exposed.
Sir Alex will have been furious and the result definitely gives United something to think about after such a brilliant start to the season.
