Unexpected defeat

Manchester United were defeated in Sunderland (2-1). Juan couldn’t avoid the defeat although Martial’s goal came after a pass from him. On Thursday they have Europa League again.

Manchester United lost at the Stadium of Light against Sunderland (2-1). Juan Mata was a starter again and was one of the most active players who menaced Mannone’s goal. He shot 4 times (one of them ended up with Martial’s goal ) and had a passing accuracy of 88%. Some good stats that weren’t enough for a win.

The match was complicated since the beginning for United with a goal on the 3rd. The visitors looked for the equalizer with pride although they couldn’t make any good chances. On the 39 nevertheless, a great left foot shot from Mata made Mannone fly to reject it but the clearance ended up in Martial’s boots who scored the 1-1.

On the second half Man United weren’t able to get to the rival’s box and saw how a header from Koné, very near the end of the match, put the definitive 2-1 on the score. Red Devil’s next appointment is an Europa league match on Thursday against the Danish Midtjylland.
