EPL Nov 2017 - 18

UCL : The Red Devils duly qualified to the KO stage of the Champions League by beating Benfica again. Benfica's teenage goalkeeper Silve  again gifted the Red Devils with an own goal

Man Utd 2  Benfica  0

Jose Mourinho still cannot get one over his former club and employer and his bitter rival Conte when they lost 1-0 at Stamford Road even though the Blues had a disaster midweek against Roma. The  Red Devils are now 8 points behind the rampant Man City side. The goal was scored by Man Utd reject, Alvero Morata!!

Chelsea 1  Man Utd  0

Man Utd 4  Newcastle 1
Rafa Benitez's Toons have no replies to a rampaging Red Devils though they scored first. Zlatan Ibrahimovic made his first appearance this season and nearly scored with a volley!!

UCL Group Match 5
Basel  1 Man Utd  0
Rio Ferdinand blasted the Red Devils for being 'unprofessional' in this 1-0 defeat. The Red Devils needed a result in their last group match against CSKA in order to qualify to the KO stage. Marcos Rojo came back from long term injury just like Zlatan.

Newly promoted Brighton & HA provided Mourinho's side the 'toughtest test' though the Red Devils prevailed with a lucky deflected Young's goal.

Man Utd  1 Brighton HA  0

Midweek 13a

Watford 2  Man Utd  4
A potential 'banana skin' match was avoided when Ashley Young scored a brace in the 4-2 victory. However, Man City maintained their 8 point lead at the top with a 96th minute winner against Southampton, 2-1. Next week, Arsenal at Emirates!!
