Juan Mata did not have the opportunity to face Oriol Romeu, with whom he maintains a strong friendship. A week after reaching 650 games as a professional, the Spanish international did not start the game, and both De Gea's and Telles minor injury conditioned Solskjaer's plans.
📊 Man Utd

The goals in the first half from Bednarek (minute 23) and Ward-Prowse (33) made the situation very difficult for the Red Devils. The latter reacted in a big way in the second half. Bruno (59 min) closed the gap, and Cavani, with a brace (74 and 92), grabbed the three points for the visiting team.
United's next match will be on Wednesday, against PSG at Old Trafford. The first opportunity to certify the qualification to the next round of the Champions League.
