Sensible substitutions from Ole
We all remember Manchester United’s first game against young boys where the manager took of Cristiano Ronaldo in the 72nd minute and brought on Jesse lingard, who made a crucial mistake and provided the assist for young boys to go and win the match against Manchester United.
But ole had learnt his lesson and this time he brought on Edison Cavani and Jesse lingard and did not take off Ronaldo this time so he could play the entire match upfront.
And that provided fruitful as both of the substitutions were involved with addition kavanah shooting in a cross from the left wing and Jesse lingard also involved before Cristiano Ronaldo scored a rebound in the 95th minute of the match to get all 3 points for Manchester United.
This win was crucial for Manchester United as they were with 0 points after their first match in the champions league, and a drop would have made them sit at the bottom of the table yet again.
