Manchester United Wins The Community Shield.

Jose Mourinho has won the first Cup of the new season, which is the Community Shield. As I mentioned in my last blog post yesterday, the Community shield is the game played between last seasons Premier League Champions and Last Season FA Cup Winners. This year it was played between Leicester  City and Manchester United.

The game was played with so much tension and anxiety of the upcoming New season. Both Coaches wanted to prove a point. Leicester City was a formidable team,strong and compact. Unfortunately for them in the 30th minutes,they couldn't contain Jesse Lingard's Skill and they allowed the first goal in by the young mid fielder.
In the Second half, Ahmed Musa was brought in, and he proved his mettle on the field. He out ran  the United Defenders who were careless on the wings.
Marounni Fellaini was careless with the ball, he couldn't contain the pressure of the Nigerian and the ball from Musa,got to a goal Puncher, Vardy who netted the equaliser for the Foxes.

The game progressed with more possession from the Premier league Champions,but the FA Cup Winners were able to contain the pressure with their displays, passes and flexibility.
At the 80th minute, Zlatan who had been contained by Morgan all through the game, got an opportunity and he got a connected pass that resulted into him nodding the winning goal into the net.

This is my over view of the game, Leicester City proved that they are a formidable team, but they need to be conscious of themselves.
Manchester United showed some sign of flexibility and creativity in the game. But they need to play has a cohesive unit.
Zlatan Ibrahomovic proved to me that he is a Striker. One Chance and a Goal. Bally was a strong Rock at the Back,but he needs to watch his game,so that he won't get unnecessary cards.
For the Foxes, Maahrez stood out as an outstanding mid fielder, he was able to contain Carrick and Fellaini. Ahmed Musa was very effective in the wings and was a threat to the United's Defence. We should expect goals from Vardy and Ibrahimovic this season. They are the Strikers to watch out for.
Congratulations to United and Mourinho for winning their first trophy for the Season.
Thank You all for reading.
