The Mancunians, however, seemed to have control of the game on the hour of play, having opened the score by Daniel James, of a beautiful shot, in first period (10e).
But a simple missed opportunity to Che Adams lost the lead to the Mancunians who, in the process, conceded the goal of the equalizer signed Jannik Vestergaard (58th).
Even more disturbing was the lack of a real reaction after this equalization. Manchester took twenty minutes to accelerate the game and highlight its technical superiority.

But their domination has been sterile, and illustrated the fact that Manchester United can not attack anymore, especially when Paul Pogba lack at this point of inspiration. Dangerous attempts to Rashford (83e), Lingard (87th), Greenwood (88e), of Young (89th) arrived too late.
With five points, Manchester United is fourth pending the results of the fourth day, just behind the top three composed of Liverpool, winner of the Champions League, Manchester City defending champion, and Arsenal.
