Manchester United, somehow, collected all three points against Villareal at Old Trafford. Cristiano Ronaldo’s last second winner and Alex Telles’ wonder strike gave the Red Devils a much needed win. Result aside, the performance raised more questions than answers as Villareal outplayed United for long stretches of the game. player ratings: 1- David De Gea: Solely responsible for keeping United in the game. Pulled off many crucial saves. MOTM. 9 2- Diogo Dalot: Filling in for the suspended Aaron Wan Bissaka, the Portuguese was really underwhelming. Constantly mishit crosses and was targeted on defense. Most of Villareal’s threat came from…

Player ratings: 1- David De Gea: Continued his decent form with another semi-decent performance. Made a couple of smart saves to deny Watkins multiple times. Could do nothing about their goal.6 2- Aaron Wan Bissaka: Beat his man on a couple occasions but still a massive liability going forward and his man marking still needs to be worked on. 5 3- Raphael Varane: Dealt with their danger well but still shaky at times. 5 4- Harry Maguire: Forced off after picking up an injury but not a good performance by him either. 4 5- Luke Shaw: Forced off early. 6-…

“This summer transfer window is the most important one in years” is becoming a theme of every summer transfer window since Sir Alex Ferguson retired. This summer window is no different. While Manchester United’s signings over the past 8 years have been hit and miss, the board simply must get this one right. The Europa League final has left a sour taste in the mouths of the Manchester United faithful, but there have been clear signs of improvement. Other teams in the league will surely look to strengthen their squads; meaning that Manchester United will risk being left behind if…
