Fred decides to take a whack from the best part of 30 yards. He sends a swerving, dipping, vicious shot towards the left-hand side of goal. Lloris extends at full length to tip around for a corner. The set piece is nothing to write home about, Fernandes wedging an aimless ball from the edge of the D, straight out of play for a goal kick.
Ronaldo meets a looping diagonal pass on the left-hand corner of the six-yard box. Instead of sending a volley screeching goalwards, he tries to tee up Shaw, only for the cushioned ball to be intercepted. He may have been offside anyway.
Kane very nearly releases Lo Celso down the left with a quick throw. Fernandes, tracking back, intercepts just in time. And just as well. United’s defence was AWOL there.
Fernandes finds some space down the right. He crosses for Cavani, who guides a header towards the top left from 12 yards. It’s inches wide. Had it been on target, it was a goal, because Lloris was rooted and beaten all ends up. Neither of these defences look very happy.
Another booking for United, as Lo Celso readies to burst down the inside-right channel, through a gap between Varane and Maguire. The latter is booked for the clip that brings Lo Celso down. A free kick in a very dangerous position to the right of the D.
