Manchester United hosted rivals Villareal at Old Trafford in UEFA Champions League Group F fixture. Manchester United made 3 changes to their defence where they introduced Victor Lindelof, Diogo Dalot and Alex Telles to partner with Raphael Varane while the attack remained intact with Ronaldo, Greenwood and Sancho. Villareal dominated the first half by creating the most chances and racking up to 5 shots on target while United had less than 2 shots. Manchester United defence was in shambles but Goalkeeper David De Gea was alert to save all the shots hence forcing a goalless draw at halftime.
Man United Goalkeeper saved 5 dangerous close range shots through his incredible flexibility streches and alertness to save the red devils from a third consecutive embarrassment at Old Trafford. Mason Greenwood and Jadon Sancho looked tired and lacked ambition to score goals as they wasted open chances while Ronaldo was not feed with enough balls because Bruno Fernandes played deep while Pogba played as holding midfielder. Manchester United fans were relieved after De Gea acrobatic streches helped the red devils keep a clean sheet im the opening 45 minutes. David De Gea was praised as an absolute beast infront of opponents forward after his vital saves which saw Man United sigh out in relieve at halftime as United had a chance to come back.
