It may be small consolation but earlier this morning Manchester beat in Maryland.

Touted as a friendly, the game saw it’s fair share of tough tackles and action but essentially it was players and their performances that stole the headlines.

It must be stated that , and all played extremely well and , despite a quiet start, played well too.

looked composed and comfortable in goal in the face of Barca’s pressure in the second half and stand-in right back added another string to his bow with a marauding performance at full back.

Barca weren’t without their stars too and Alcantara  added to his growing reputation with a brilliant creative performance capped with an even better goal.

United will be under no illusions about the game but the performance and manner in which we won is a massive positive and is definitely something to build upon as United made it 5 wins out of 5 on the US tour.
