It was like watching the Manchester United of old as the Red Devils who are oblivious to the existence of the word quit produced a late late show that former Manager Sir Alex Ferguson would have been proud of.
Instead now Jose-time replaces Fergie-time on the lips of commentators as Manchester United needed 92 minutes to break down the resolve of Hull City to keep their 100% record going this season.
The match-winner was created by Skipper Wayne Rooney, who danced towards the bye-line, shrugged off the challenge of El Mohamady, and then laid the ball on a proverbial plate for substitute Marcus Rashford to smash home as United picked up the narrowest of 1-0 wins.
The Red Devils dominated the match, much like the way they did in the previous 2 matches of the season, keeping possession of the ball and taking a plethora of attempts.
Statistically speaking, United had 29 shots; however, with their forwards misfiring, only 9 of them ended up being on target. On the contrary, Hull, who had only 38% possession in the match, took 8 shots, with 2 of them being on target.
The Tigers, meanwhile, gave Jose Mourinho a taste of his own medicine (we’re talking about his Chelsea days) by defending resolutely against the visitors. Curtis Davies was the standout player for the side, with Eldin Jakupović impressing once again with his rock solid keeping!
United came close to scoring on a number of occasions, with the likes of Wayne Rooney and Zlatan Ibrahimovic getting the best chances of the game. However, they had to wait until the 92nd minute, when Rooney slid a cross into the box for Rashford to seal the victory.
The win, meanwhile, takes United to second spot on the league table, with leaders Chelsea ahead of them only because of a superior goals tally. Hull, on the other hand, have slipped to a 5th, with their performance.
