Typical enough as it is this season coming from behind, United played some really exciting stuff against a decent Braga side. The Portuguese outlet couldn’t possibly have started the game better after scoring two goals inside the first 20 minutes.
The downside to United’s performance was in defence which seems to be an ongoing problem. At the start of the season we suffered a number of injuries and Ferguson has been rotating the two goalkeepers a lot. It hasn’t helped matters and they need sorting promptly with a trip to Stamford Bridge coming up this weekend.
Javier Hernandez was awarded ITV man of the match for his efforts. Tonight we saw one of his greatest performances in a Red shirt which was needed for his confidence after falling down the pecking order since Robin van Persie’s arrival.
Ferguson announced after the game that Shinji Kagawa twisted his knee during the first half. This resulted in the Japanese midfielder being replaced at half time for Nani.
