It’s good to see Wan-Bissaka in positions such as that one he occupied to win the latest corner. His attacking game is criticised probably more often than it deserves. Yes, it’s a weakness but it’s not as if he camps out in his own half. James will need the attacking help tonight.
A bit of a slow burner here with Granada not giving up much space around their own box. United are getting more of the ball, but still nothing you’d classify as a chance for either side.
Pogba has been in the thick of the action early on. He has helped United get out of some tight spots in front of their own back four early on; it’s down to Rashford, Greenwood et al to make the runs for the Frenchman to find. It’s a positive move having Pogba in the two-man pivot at the base of midfield.
Rashford’s body language does not look great. It’s so obvious the cameras are homing in on him, so it is not an obvious conclusion to draw after he requested a breather after that early run.
United have been careless in their own third and Wan-Bissaka did Pogba no favours with that hospital pass. The game just hasn’t flowed so far.
Granada look to have done their homework. The right side of United’s defence has been the more vulnerable this season and that is exactly where the hosts have caused the early trouble here. United haven’t got hold of the ball yet.
