Never a team to do things the easy way, Manchester really pushed that idea to the limit last night after a late Ashley goal saved United from sure defeat having surrendered a 2 goal lead.

looked to be coasting after 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 for the first time since the 1-0 defeat to Besiktas in 2009.

But the script wasn’t finished and substitute floated in a cross that Ashley nodded in to rescue a point for in a game where our defensive frailties were continually exposed.

will have been furious and the result definitely gives something to think about after such a brilliant start to the season.
