With a home fixture against Swansea City to come tomorrow, at least our resident Manchester United supporters in the Football Transfer Tavern are approaching their third festive fixture with more optimism following a decent attacking showing against Chelsea on Bank Holiday Monday.
Doing everything but scoring against Guus Hiddink’s Blues, a large section of Red Devils supporters arrived at Old Trafford ready to give Louis van Gaal hell but as it turned out, a lot of their chants were then aimed at supporting the team who were visibly giving their all for their under-fire boss.
With Juan Mata hitting the bar, Anthony Martial hitting the post Ander Herrera being denied by a fantastic Thibaut Courtois stop and Willian handling the ball in what should’ve been a United penalty, there was no doubting that this was an invigorating Red Devils performance compared to the past seven games previously.
All of that said, they still didn’t get the all-important goal they were craving and nothing more than a win will do against the Swans tomorrow to prove United are setting about turning the corner.
In Alan Curtis’ team, Swansea City have proved a thorn in United’s side in recent seasons with the Welsh side having strangely prevailed by a 2-1 scoreline in the last three meetings between the duo.
While that game will sort itself out tomorrow, we’re today looking at Manchester United fans’ five biggest fears for the remainder of the campaign.
