Barcelona 2-2 Manchester United: Old Trafford will be rocking next week

Erik ten Hag can be proud of the lads tonight.

I can’t help but feel we should have come away with a win tonight. Manchester United gave it as good as they gave it against a Robert Lewandowski inspired Barcelona side.

And, as I would have told you before the game, we would take a draw at Barca away.

This isn’t a great Barcelona side by any stretch of the imagination.

At the same time, this isn’t a great United side. Yet.

The Reds went toe-to-toe with the best team in Spain by a country mile and we should we happy with how we played tonight.

The first goal we conceded – scored by former Chelsea man Marcos Alonso – could have been avoided and the second was a sloppy lapse in concentration. Not something you would usually associate with Casemiro, while Fred gave up marking his man.

The two goals were our first at Camp Nou since 1999 and I’m absolutely buzzing for Marcus Rashford to score his fourth in Europe this season. He was clearly fouled in the second half and it should have been a penalty, which was completely ignored by the referee, who played up to the home support after the break.

Old Trafford will be rocking next week.
