So it seems this horrible nightmare of falling behind in every match still continues.
On Saturday, United fell two goals behind at Villa Park only to come back and win 3-2 in the ‘Javier Hernandez show‘.
The Mexican hitman came from the bench to score a hat-trick and win all 3 points for United (it is a hat-trick until the dubious goals panel tell me otherwise).
The worrying part is that this is the eighth time this season United have won a game after falling behind.
Comeback kings? Yes. Bad for my heart? Yes. Wouldn’t we all prefer to simply not go behind? Sure… I’d also like a supermodel wife but it just isn’t happening.
There were no domestic fixtures this week but a host of pointless international friendlies.
Elsewhere, Darren Fletcher got another full 90 minutes under his belt helping him along that path of recovery; Patrice Evra played well as France won away in Italy and Robbie Brady started for the RoI in a defeat against Greece.
To round off the news on an exciting note, new boy Angelo Henriquz marked his senior debut for Chile with a goal. Coming from the bench replacing Alexis Sanches of Barcelona, he scored a very impressive headed goal. One for the future?
