Smalling rises highest to nod into the net and that is a great start for United. A lovely glancing header from Smalling, who looked like he was half a yard offside. No-one marking him. Shoddy defending.
It has to be 1-1! Torres gets in behind Smalling and pulls the ball across for Ramires who has the goal at his mercy but somehow he hits it at De Gea who was flying across goal.
What a goal from Nani! That was ridiculous! He steps past Mata as if he wasn’t there, then past Meireles before slamming a shot right into the top corner.
Rooney profits from a very lucky deflection as Terry tries to clear in his box – the ball hits Nani and rolls square for Rooney who tucks it home.
What a ball from Anelka in behind Jones and Torres flicks beautifully over De Gea. Game back on?
An incredible passage of play as Nani breaks downfield, smacks a ball against the crossbar then Bosingwa dives into get the ball as Nani lines up the rebound, takes the man but also some of the ball and Dowd says penalty. Rooney misses! He slips and screws it wide!
A good start for Manchester United as they win all the 5 EPL games. Last few seasons they had poor start but still can climb to the champion title, I believe this season they can defense their title for another season.
