By Richard Evans 1. RVP left isolated Despite conceding inside four minutes United responded well and could easily have levelled had the ball fallen in just the right place.

5 Things We Learned: Manchester United 0-1 Chelsea

By Mark Nevin 1.  United players still get sent off Rafael’s red card was silly, in several respects.

5 Things We Learned: Manchester United 3-1 Sunderland

By Chris Mortlock 1. From one headache to another… …Albeit a much easier one to handle. With Nemanja Vidic returning to first-team action on Saturday, the boss is now spoilt for choice when choosing his central defensive partnership.
