Manchester United have had a three-week of missed feelings in the State as they prepare for the coming season.
The former Premier League Champions are battling with numerous injuries to their first-team players; they haven’t been active in the ongoing transfer period and to add to their miseries, they were thrashed 4-1 by Liverpool last Sunday.
Going through all of the unwanted happenings, Mourinho and his men were emotionally down heading to the last pre-season match against the Los Blancos.
The Old Trafford outfits started the game on a less-inspiring form as they let Lopetegui’s men dictate play in the first 10 minutes of the encounter.
However, the Red Devils rose above their emotional depression to score the first goal of the encounter, thanks to Alexis Sanchez who connected well to Matteo Darmian’s cross to put the ball into the Madrid net.
Alexis Sanchez stole the show when he made a world-class assist for Ander Herrera’s goal, which turned out to be the winning goal of the ongoing encounter.
Though Alexis Sanchez was an inspiration for the Red Devils against the European Champions, United new boy Fred, who joined the team from Shakhtar Donetsk, proved his worth with a classic display throughout the game.
His passes, ball recovery, runs and defending abilities were top notch during the game. Should he maintain such blistering performance in the coming weeks, he might bench Nemanja Matic from Mourinho’s starting lineup in the coming season.
