The first half was extremely messy and both the teams couldn’t play in proper systems. With multiple dead balls and poor defending, one standout performer for Manchester United was the newly signed Wan Bissaka. He was really solid on the wing and consistently helped the team to move the ball forward or to man-mark key players.

Marcus Rashford scored the opening goal of the game through a penalty in the first half. The ball was shot with a great pace and placement from the young English International. The game stayed 1-0 as the half time whistle blew.
