United produced a dreamy second half performance at the Theater of Dreams as Alexis Sanchez’ wonderful header completed a memorable comeback for the home team, despite going two goals down early in the first half.
In a match that was deemed as Jose’s last in the United dugout before the kick-off, the Red Devils dug deep and finally showed some of the grit that was seen from the great United teams of the past. Mourinho and his players were obviously jubilant from the stunning win and were all smiles following the full time whistle.
Despite rumored to have a fractured relationship with his manager, star man Pogba came to the fore when it mattered and delivered another solid performance for his team yesterday. The World Cup winner scored some major points with the fans after the full time whistle as well by staying back on the pitch to celebrate with the home supporters.

While certain performances earlier in the season had put some serious question marks over the unity in United’s squad, the win should definitely give the Red Devils a timely boost as they look to make up some lost ground in the league.
