Lows of Man Utd Europa League

Midweek European competitions
Europa Cup
Another low for the Red Devils. Another extreme embarassment. How much lower will LvG bring to Utd before he leaves?? The last 32 first leg defeat at Midtjylland  against a supposedly minnow Danish team is something which shocked and stunned every Red Devil at how ordinary the team is now. David Moyes could have done better. How long will the bosses stick with LvG?? Next up is the FA cup 5th Rd against Shrewsbury, another 'lowly' team.....expect the unexpected once more.
LvG may want to use his catalogue of injuries as an excuse. Rooney injured after defeat at Sunderland. Now, David de Gea injured his knee during warmup at Midtyjlland. What a mess!! Isn't he totally embarrassed by this latest episode and hang on???

"A stony faced Louis van Gaal has a faraway look in his eyes, as though he’s not able to quite comprehend just how badly life at Manchester United is turning out for him. Credit to Midtjylland, who have just secured the biggest victory in their history. "

Player ratings

Romero 7 - In for De Gea minutes before kick-off. Made key saves, including a sublime one at full stretch. Little he could do to stop either goal.
Love 4 - Caught out of position several times on first United start and booked for poor tackle.
Smalling 5 - Nothing he could do to stop deflection off him for equaliser, but should have snuffed out danger earlier.
McNair 4 - Culpable along with rest of defence for equaliser, as he was dragged all over the place.
Blind 4 - Calm and composed at left-back but also all at sea for the equaliser.
Carrick 4 - Diligent enough on the ball but his weak pass ultimately led to Midtjylland’s leveller.
Herrera 3 - Lucky not to get early yellow for rash tackle. Sloppy on the ball. Subbed.
Lingard 5 - Booked. Provided the assist for United’s opener but faded thereafter. Cautioned late on.
Mata 4 - Wasted headed chance. Allowed Onuachu to score from edge of area before being subbed.
Memphis 6 - Early shot blocked. Made some decent runs and scored opener at second attempt.
Martial 5 - Caused defenders problems with his quick feet, but not enough of a threat throughout.
Subs: Schneiderlin 5 (Herrera, 72), Pereira 5 (Mata, 78)
