A fantastic start to the season for Feyenoord gradually disappeared. Team van Bronckhorst has won just two of their last six games, talked about the best condition of the team from Rotterdam. At the same time, the Dutch have certainly remained fresh in the memory of an unexpected home win over Manchester United in the first round group stage of the Europa League. However, the Red devils have since then managed to significantly change his game, and in addition under the guidance of Jose Mourinho’s team, probably, gave him his best match this weekend against London’s Arsenal.
From the starting minutes of the match took control of the game by the home team immediately began to display their star status. More active than others looked forward Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who tried to cling to every chance. The most real chances to score was from Paul Pogba and Michael Carrick, with blows which managed to cope Bradley Jones. And yet the goalkeeper they failed to do when, as a result of cool low pass from Ibrahimovic went one on one Rooney then cleverly chipped the ball over the goalkeeper into the net.
For all the first forty-five minutes flashed in front of goal guests only once. Elia went great rivals on the left flank of the attack, then shot into the center, where the first blow from Karsdorp was parried by the goalkeeper, and the ensuing rebound from quite. It is interesting that the second shot fails to score for United heroically parried with their feet already. However, in the future, nothing sensible to create in front of goal the players of Feyenoord did not work.
At the start of the second half, advantage all also owned the club, did not wait long and scored goals. First, nice shot of Juan Mata from outside the penalty under the crossbar managed to fend off Bradley Jones. However, after a few minutes, the Spaniard still managed to score a successful shot from the centre penalty area after great combination and played the final pass from Wayne Rooney. It is worth noting that the attack began with a great United selection in the performance of Carrick in single combat with Villenoy.
In the ensuing minutes, Feyenoord has virtually collapsed. The third goal was scored own goal Jones while trying to break a cross from the edge of the box from Ibrahimovic. The fourth goal was scored by substitute Lingard, great kick from outside the penalty exactly in the corner. This was the second attempt to break from the middle distance, because before the first shot Jesse managed to parry Jones. 4:0 — the spectacular victory of Manchester United, which clearly proved the superiority of the Red devils over their today’s opponents. Now to pass on the wards Mourinho is enough to score at least one point in the Odessa game.
