7 Things We Learned from Manchester United v Bayer Leverkusen

Follow Eddie on Twitter

Here are some points from yesterday’s match. Feel free to share your own in the comments!!

Miscommunication, a weak punch, and failing to close down Clint Dempsey spelled the difference between a draw and a win.  However, if we take a closer look, then perhaps we might reach a different conclusion.
