Valencia 0 Manchester United 1

For long spells United didn't look like it could pull off its first away win of the season.

United played with Anderson, Fletcher and Carrick in midfield. Nani and Park were deployed on the wings and Berbatov played alone up from. The creativity just wasn't there.

And Park was losing the ball too often in the first half and Carrick was way below par.

Chichi came on for Anderson and within minutes, he came within whiskers to scoring. In the 84th minute, Nani's first decent cross was almost turned in by Chichi at the far post. The ball came off the woodwork with the goal begging.

SAF smelt blood and made a huge move. He took out in form striker, Berbatov, and brought in young Macheda.

A minute later, the move payed off. Nani beat his man on the wing and squared the ball to Macheda. Macheda's touch was brilliant and he set the ball squarely to Chichi... and the rest was history!
