Jose Mourinho needed a big response from his Manchester United players on Wednesday night after the debacle that was the 4-0 thrashing handed to them by Chelsea last weekend..
And they nearly conceded to Kelechi Iheanacho after one minute of play.
Despite that early scare, the United players grew into the game but they had to wait until the second half for the goal, which was well taken by Juan Mata.
The wee Spaniard tends to always involve himself with goals and assists when he's on the pitch, but he can thank Aleksander Kolarov for the goal tonight as the City defender completely stopped playing.
Seriously, what the hell was Kolarov doing?
He was so worried about a penalty being given that he forgot he was actually supposed to be playing. Baffling. In his defence, he's not a centre-back and has been struggling in the position, but that's a total brainfart.
Mata buried his chance, and Old Trafford erupted.
