City 3-1 United. Five Matters Arising From The Etihad Crash.

Manchester United were hosted by neighbours Manchester City for the first El-Manchesco derby of the season.  The Citizens came out on top with a 3-1 victory, with United's sole goal coming from Anthony Martial's spot kick.

Here are five(5) Matters Arising from this clash:
1. NO POGBA, NO PARTY
United were given a dirty slap when rumours about Paul Ikenna Pogba's injury were confirmed by his absence in the matchday squad.
The Frenchman is easily United's best player and most confident on the ball, and single-handedly turned things around in United's 3-2 come back Victory at Etihad in April.
As expected, the Red Devils failed to create anything from midfield, and ended up opting for 'anywhere-bele-face' football and hoped for the best for 90mins.
2. SLOW START 'WAHALA'
Another day, another slow start for United, another punishment given.
The Red devils entered the match yet again with their push and start football, hoping to continue the trend of comeb…

Juventus 1-2 United: Five(5) Things We Learnt From Another Great Comeback

It was a glorious night at Turin, as Manchester United in a typical Naija fashion, 'put pepper into Juventus eye'. For the second consecutive game, United snatched victory in Fergie-time; Say hello to the new Comeback kings!!


Here are five(5) things #ManUtdNaijaFM learnt from this super comeback:


1. DE GEA VS RONALDO
Having scored a hatrick against our own 'Osinachi' De Gea at the world cup, CR-7 did it again with a fantastic volley. It was indeed a beauty.




The most interesting part of the goal was De Gea's reaction. He looked at Ronaldo and looked at the ball inside his net and seemed to say 'Na lie!'.....Well, thank God De Gea had the last laugh.

2. ANOTHER JUAN-TASTIC FREE KICK.
For the 10th time in his career, Juan 'Bankole' Mata scored a 'Hossana' free-kick. It was beautiful seeing the ball dancing 'One-corner dance' inside the Juventus goal.


Juan Mata seems to have oiled his free-kick boots and at this rate, if United have a f…
