Almost Perfect For United
United have been scoring for fun
In a month where Manchester United looked absolutely unstoppable in the Premier League the same could not be said about the Champions League after Shakhtar came and shocked the Manchester club at Old trafford of all places!
The first match of the month was a potentially tricky tie in the north east against Newcastle but Steven Naismith has been THE MAN
this season so far and in the 19th minute he hit a delightful chip over Tim Krul and into the back of the net. Newcastle though were letting themselves down and could hardly string a pass together but it was a mistake from the otherwise fantastic John Stones that gave Newcastle the most unlikely of equalisers just a minute later through Tiote who rounded De Gea and scored to make it 1-1.
Naismith on fire again this month
But the incredible sequance of events got even more wierd when just a minute later again Manchester United with back in-front through the most freakish of ways. Andros Townsend got the ball about 35 yards out and hit a aimless cross into the box which missed everyone and Krul, who thought it was going wide watched in horror as it trickled over the line for 2-1 to United, and they were not looking back.
In the second half they destroyed the Newcastle team and on the 81st minute Van Persie, who had been a busy body all match set Naismith up for his second of the game and in the 94th minute he completed a second hat-trick in three games.
Then followed the 3-2 defeat against Shakhtar and the media were saying that United did not turn up but I disagree with this notion and would like to say that United were fantastic but Shakhtar were fabulous! Right back Darijo Srna was awesome at right back and scored one and had a hand in two goals as Shakhtar showed they should be watched in the Champions League this season.
Shakhtar celebrate an unlikely win
United then won a hard fought match against Arsenal when sub Antonio Candreva carried on his brilliant form by scoring the winner from a fre kick on the 74th minute. It was a mighty tight match and it was always going to come down to a moment of genius, which the Italian had in abundance.
Then came a routine 2-0 victory against Bolton with Wellington Nem getting both goals late on. He was awesome in this match and will have done his chances of starting the world of good!
Then came the game of the month against Chelsea. By the 40th minute United, who are extremely fast starters were 4-0 up through a Jordan Rhodes brace and a Mirallas brace too. United allowed Chelsea back into it after half time by giving away two cheap goals but any hope of a comeback were dispelled on the 72nd when awful defending allowed Ginter to score the 5th and winning goal.
Premier League Table
United are top with Spurs there closest challengers 4 points behind. the shock good starters are Aston Villa (5th) and Wigan (7th) but people do not expect them to continue up there. Everton, the holders are down in 14th proving last season was due to Lukaku only and Mirallas who has now left.
Manager Of The Month
Rodgers picks up the award for the second month out of two. United are on fire this season so far. Uwe Rosler claims second place after guiding Wigan to 7th and Martin Jol has Villa in 5th and claims third.
Player Of The Month
I am very pleased to win the player of the month award for September and I will try to keep the performances up to claim more of these but to help my club win more matches and we can march onto win the league
said Buttner on picking up his award.
Young Player Of The Month
Matthias Ginter has just edged out last months Player Of The Month
winner John Stones. He has put in some awesome performances this month and this just shows with Ginter winning the player of the month and two more defenders from United first and second here that United are proving to be a very tough nut to crack this season.
