Ho... Interesting stat

Beep beep!

Oh Manchester...

By now, everyone and their pet has heard of Man United’s demolition at the hands of their archrivals Liverpool. If you ask me, it’s been a long time (ok, weeks long) coming for United, whose “pressing” scheme, if you can call it that, has looked depressing. Anyway, this isn’t the place or post to talk about ManU’s flaws. The world went crazy about Mo Salah’s hattrick in the Theatre of Dreams. But, do you recall the previous player to score a hattrick in the Old Trafford? Yesh! It was Ronaldo Nazario back when he was playing for Real Madrid. And what a game that was...

Dani’s been here for a while huh

Box-to-Box monster Fede Valverde is injured - though it’s nothing serious - and is expected to be out for a few weeks. This probably means more minutes for Camavinga in the next few games.
