Man United beat Zorya

Manchester United left it late, but eventually came out 1-0 winners against Zorya tonight.

Jose Mourinho’s men were poor once again and needed a goal from Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the 69th minute to win the game for them.

They looked slow on the ball tonight and also missed the liveliness of Ander Herrera in midfield.

It was Mourinho’s call to put Marouane Fellaini in the side over Herrera and many fans were unhappy with the Belgium international from the offset.

Mourinho also made the call to leave out Wayne Rooney tonight, claiming he wasn’t 100% fit.

However, 67 minutes into the match, Rooney came off the bench and made an almost immediate impact.

Rooney assists winner

The striker assisted Manchester United’s winning goal 2 minutes after coming on.

His scuffed shot fell into the path of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and he managed to head the ball home.

However, despite the assist, the abuse for Rooney still flooded in from many Manchester United fans and a lot of people were quick to point out how lucky Rooney was for the goal.
