Another game against Barca in which we drew the short straw with regard to kit, but at least we got to give the nice new white away kit a showing, and it looks pretty darn good. It managed to help us hold out on a clean sheet and a hard-fought 0-0 draw against the best team in the world as well. Unlike last year’s pre-season friendly, Barca fielded a near-full strength side, and brought the other superstars on from the bench later on. United, however, played pretty much their strongest side from the outset, so perhaps it was a little disappointing that we didn’t control possession more, but there’s no shame in drawing against Barca, none at all.
De Gea – 8 – inspired form and kept a well-deserved clean sheet, preventing many goals (and a couple of would-be disallowed goals). Excellent performance.
Valencia – 7 – got caught out…
