UNITED 2-0 HUDDERSFIELD TOWN: 5 Things We Learnt as United Hurt Huddersfield

Manchester United welcomed Huddersfield Town to Old Trafford in a high intensity match which saw the Huddersfield players act like they didnt come to 'break melon' on the pitch with tackles flying all around.

Two goals from Romelu 'Timaya' Lukaku and Alexis 'Balogun' Sanchez however sealed a 2-0 win.

Here are five things #ManUtdNaijaFM learnt from this clash

Played like a true warlord  leading his troops into battle today. Our 'awoof' number 7 was all over the pitch today running at the defence, creating openings with defence splitting passes, despite being given 'Isakaba' marking.

Ended the day by opening his Manchester United account with a rebound shot after his penalty was saved. All the same, still ManUtdNaijaFM's undisputed man of the match.

What a player. The midfielder's future is as bright as brand new rechargeable lantern. The youngster had a brilliant game today, fitting seamlessly into the team like he had been playing for United for a long time.

Kudos to Jose 'Uchenna' Mourinho for unearthing such a talent. Deserves more game time and needs a Naija name!

The United boss decided to shuffle United's starting XI today, dropping normal starters in Jones, Young, Pogba, while also starting neither Rashford or Martial for the first time this season.

Well, it turned out not to backfire as the replacements gave a good account of themselves. But we must plead, Oga José 'abeg' don't be using our lineup to play 'Baba Ijebu' like that. Thank you.

United seemed to play better than in recent times today, ending the game with 74% possession. The long ball tactics a.k.a 'lob-the-ball-to-Fellaini, which has killed United's general build up play in recent times was  abandoned.

The team however needs to work on their confidence and quick decisions in the attacking third.

The Spanish goalkeeper made his 300th appearance for Manchester United today with another cleansheet.

Kudos to the defence for giving David 'Osinachi' De Gea a sweet anniversary today, shielding him from all attempted attacks at goal. De Gea ended the day without having a save to make, and might as well have brought the 'nkwobi' and 'Orijin' to the pitch to celebrate the occasion.

Bros Dave Please, 'Abeg', 'Biko', 'Ejoor', 'Dan Allah', sign a contract extension so we can celebrate another 300 appearances with you at Manchester United.

IN THE END, a comfortable 3 points in the bag for United, and sweet revenge exerted upon the first team to pour 'san-san' our garri this season.

Up next, Newcastle United, same time, same station on Sunday.
Stay tuned to ManUtdNaijaFM.
