Full time score: MAN 1-0 BIR
Evra and Rooney become the Heroes of the 1st Premier League game of the season for Manchester United. Evra saved an excellent delivery from Larsson by his header. So the two were the spotlights of the game.
Have a look at the goal Rooney scored -
According to me it was a pretty slow start for United. Berbatov was very sluggish as always. Nani looked impressive once again but he was subsituted at the half time because of his shoulder injury. Giggs came in for Nani and was very efficient in passing the ball around. There were a couple of good chances for Michael Owen who replaced the inefficient Berbs at the 75th minute. He almost had a magical introduction but I wish he had scored when he was one on one with the B'gham city's goalie who righly blocked the chance and didnt let the No. 7 score. Valencia also looked impressive.
Fletcher was the only United's player to get booked. Also, Ferdinand is not available for the next two weeks = about 3 games. This will let Fergie try his other defenders like Evans, Wes Brown and Fabio.
I firmly believe Nani is going to have an absolutely fantastic season. May he recover from his shoulder injury soon and play in their next game against Burnley which is an away game on 19th August.We might get to see their exclusive away jersey which is the current theme of this blog. The kick off is at 7.45 PM BST. So do catch the action live and exclusive.
That's all from today. Will catch you very soon with all the transfer developments and the coming Wednesday's game updates.
Glory Glory Man United
