Player Performance Analysis | Darmian vs Aston Villa

Manchester United ground out another close win at Villa Park making it two wins out of two in the new season in a game where Louis Van Gaal's side looked more comfortable at the back than they were going forward again, quite strangely, as very few would have expected such a scenario unfolding on the back of all the issues they face right from the goalkeeper dilemma to the pressing need to bring in a top centre-half to play alongside …

No more excuses for Van Gaal and United

No more excuses for Van Gaal and United

With the retirement of Sir Alex came the expected decline of Manchester United. David Moyes’ appointment as United boss was heralded as underwhelming by all but the hopeful Man United faithful, who clung to the belief that Sir Alex had left the club in safe hands.
