Man Utd In November 2016

Europa League
vs Fenerbahce in Turkey 4th November
Source: BT Sports

Jose Mourinho's woes continued at Turkey. After comprehensively beating Fenerbahce at Old Trafford, the Red Devils were a goal down by the 90th seconds of the match and eventually lost 2-1. His records with Utd is now 'as good as' van Gaal or Moyes!!!

6th November
An easy fixture for the Red Devils as the Swans are devoid of ideas and organisation. While Chelsea (5-0 against Everton) and Liverpool (6-1 Watford) to go top, the Red Devils should have build on their first half 3-0 lead.

Zlatan scored a brace, the first one is the 25000th EPL goal, after a drought since September

19th November : 12th week, after the International Week
Gigantic clash at Old Trafford between Mourinho and Wenger, Red Devils vs Gunners, a stuttering side vs a firing side....
The Red Devils dominated but no one can finish. Juan Mata scored but Giroud scored a 89th minute equaliser with the only Gunner's shot on target!!!!

Europa League vs Feyenoord : Revenge for the 1-0 opening defeat in Holland for Mourinho's side. This time the Red Devils dominated and made it count with 4 goals. Wayne Rooney scored his historic goal to become Utd's all time Utd's European top scorer.

Week 13: Another frustrating matchday for Mourinho and the Red Devils, not unlike the van Gaal days when they dominated by just could not kill off their opponents. As a result, West Ham escaped with a 1-1 draw, having taken the lead as early as the 2nd minute. Not the first time that this Utd team was caught cold at the very beginning of the match. Jose's day was darkened further when he was sent off to the stand for kicking a bottle at the touchline in protest against a booking for Progba for an alleged dive!!

It is still November only and nearly everyone has already written off the Red Devils' title challenge!

30 November 2016
the Red Devils are into the semi-final of the League Cup. For the second time this week at Old Trafford, West Ham Utd were the opponents. Just like the earlier game, Utd dominated but this time they managed to score, braces from Ibrahimovic and Martial. Jose Mourinho had to stay away after a 1-match immediate ban on him for kicking a water bottle in the earlier match. 4-1 Utd
