The Most Beautiful Thing We Noticed From United's Chelsea Victory

On a day United faithfuls got to see their 'tear rubber new chassis' signings, Maguire, the 'Isakaba' boy Wan-Bissaka and 'Osondu' James on display in the mauling of Chelsea, one huge change went unnoticed...

Our legendary manager had already hinted that Maguire's signing signified the start of an era of a stable defensive partnership between the new signing and our 'jollof' defender, Victor Lindelof. This of course was implemented in the first game of the season, with Axel Tuanzebe taking up a place on the bench for the matchday following his impressive loan spell in 2018/2019 and pre season. The complete omission of a fit Phil Jones (someone please confirm this o) and Chris Smalling from the match day squad was a low key joy to behold.

Despite playing under the tutelage of 'Igwe' Sir Alex Ferguson, and playing alongside defence legends, 'Ichie' Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand, the defenders showed no improvement which has been frustrating to United fans all through the years.

Chris Smalling showed signs of improvement in the 2015/2016 season under Van Gaal, but immediately after, 'restored factory settings' and returned to his 'shaky shaky daddy mode'. The less said about own goal master Phil Jones and his constant battle with self-inflicted injuries, the better.

With United keeping only a handful of clean sheets last season and shipping in containers of goals, a clean sheet against 'bad bele' rivals Chelsea is nothing short of a welcome, hope giving development. We do hope that form is carried along through out the season.

Personally, if it costs only 'chinkele' £80m to get those two and out of the first XI picture, I would gladly add another £100m to ensure it stays that way...'Our mumu don do.'
