English team began their woeful outing once again in the UEFA Champions league as the 2 Manchester teams loss their opening game on Match Day 1.
Man United’s return to Europe after a year away ended in a disappointing 2-1 defeat away to PSV Eindhoven in Group B, with Hector Moreno and Luciano Narsingh scoring after Memphis Depay’s opener and Man City after taking the lead via a controversial goal still lost the game 1-2 with Mandzukic and Morata showing Juventus class.
City might be missing their talisman Aguero but it was the Italian’s team spirit that paid off eventually, Juventus began the fightback in the 70th minute when Mario Mandzukic glanced home a whipped cross from Paul Pogba and Morata scored the goal of the night when he curled in the winner from outside the penalty area after a long ball forward was deflected into his path.
The barton for English respect will be passed on to both Arsenal and Chelsea in todays Champions league fixture. Arsenal to face Dinamo Zagreb and Chelsea to face Maccabi Tel-Aviv.
