It’s an absolute dream start at the Emirates with Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Özil giving us an early two goal lead. We looked aggressive and up for the game right from the off, with the players clearly looking to make amends for our shocking European performance in mid week.
The first goal started with Hector Bellerin, and came from a slick passing move. Theo Walcott got involved, and allowed Mesut Özil to get to the byline. He put a fantastic pass in to Alexis Sanchez, who flicked it deftly past David de Gea. 1-0.
Check out the goal below:
We made it 2-0 almost from kick off, with 33 seconds between the restart and the goal. Theo Walcott’s pace caused Man United real problems, and he was played in on goal. United recovered well, but the Englishman kept his composure and picked out Mesut Özil for a relatively simple finish.

Hopefully we can continue in this vein, and keep the pressure up on Louis van Gaal’s side. At this rate we’ll be ahead of the Red Devils in the table come the end of the game.
