Manchester United 1 – Wolves 0
Manchester United: Welbeck (66)
Red Card: Fabio (30)
Team: Kuszczak, Evans, Brown, Neville, Fabio, Carrick, Gibson, Welbeck (King 81), Nani, Macheda (De Laet 30), Owen (Valencia 69)
As anticipated, a squad full of new faces arrived at Old trafford.Fergie new that he cannot afford to lose any of his valuable this season,so lead his first team to make up for the task.United’s future stars where brought replacing the olds ones.
OWen was presented with first team line up in the squad along side Macheda.
United’s first goal was scored by Welbeck with a neat one-two-one passing from OWen at around 60 minutes.The only goal scored for the night.Before that,United had gone to 10 men just after 30 minutes to the game,after Fabio was sent off for a reasonable offence.
Macheda was replaced for De laet to fill the boots of fabio.The later half was well managed by United lads.
Carrick and Gibson both turning reliable in mid-field was a good show to watch.Gibson seemed to have outclassed Carrick on many occassions.Nani also seems to have upgraded every since Ronaldo took off to Real.He still needs to be less edgy and try not to lose ball early in tackle.
Welbeck was another player who turned pretty well for night.Much maturity and responsibility was seen in his game.He could be now used more often rather than making him sit of bench.Valencia had last 20 minutes to play which was quite fair.No fancy work but good football played by him.
I was expecting more from Macheda but sadly he was replaced quickly.Brown and Neville both had a decent game.Evans and Evra both worked brilliant at back.Not to mention with poor quality by Wolves.
All in all a decent getaway game.I could have for more goals if we were with 11 men till 90 minutes.
