Young Mexican Wins it for Manchester United

The 22 year old Mexican by the name of Javier Hernández who impressed last night with a near miss, and importantly a goal, in Manchester United's 1-0 win over Valencia.

It was some great play by Nani to keep the ball and set Macheda away to make the pass to the Mexican.

Hernández scored with just five minutes to go to give United a rare Champions League victory in Spain. The result puts United top of their group.

Manchester United Drop More Points

Isn't it strange that Manchester United seem so often to struggle against the weaker teams?

Over the weekend Chelsea went down to Manchester City, and Arsenal got beaten by West Brom, giving United a great chance to pull back 3 points when they played their match away to Bolton Wanderers.

But, it wasn't United's day, and they came away with yet another one point from an away game. No disrepect to Bolton, but this, as with the Fulham and Evertyon games, was a match you'd expect them to win. 6 points dropped against just the 3 of Chelsea's isn't exactly a confidence-filling start to the season.

The bright spot in the 2-2 draw was Nani's fantastic run from the half way line to score United's equaliser.

Manchester United's Berbatov Scores Hat Trick Over Liverpool

Dimitar berbatov went some way to repaying his £30 million price tag on Sunday.

His hat trick gave Manchester Untied all three points in their victory over archrivals Liverpool.

2-0 up should have meant United were home and dry, but a penalty which was converted by Gerrard, along with an excellent free kick on the edge of the box, meant United were pegged back to 2-2. That would have been a travesty, and Berbatov made it 3-2 with a header in the final minutes. The 2nd goal of a his, an overhead kick, was wonderful, stunning, breathtaking - call it what you will.  United needed this win, and they really deserved it.

More Consistency Demanded Of Players By Man United Boss

Sir Alex Ferguson has warned Manchester Utd ahead of their big Liverpool game today.

His players have already let slip two leads to end up with draws. The 'killer instinct' has been lacking, and that just isn't good enough when rivals Chelsea and even Arsenal are firing on all cylinders.

A victory against Liverpool will hopefully spur United on, but even though Liverpool are spluttering with their season the match won't be easy for the Red Devils.

Manchester United Drop Another Two Points

Wayne Rooney stayed at home as his Manchester United team travelled to Everton.

Unfortunately Rooney's not being able to keep it in his pants might have cost United the victory.

Who knows whether by the end of normal time United would have been leading  by 3-1. If they had been it's only conjecture, but would Everton have been able to come back to score twice in injury time?

With Rooney absent it meant the side faced adjustments with Neville once again at his usual right back position. O'Shea was out of his natural position and played in midfield. Giigs played more forward.

Points dropped like this may well come back to haunt Manchester United at the end of the season, and Rooney may have  to take some of the blame!
