19/9/12 Manchester United v Galatasaray: 5 Beautiful GIF Moments

Manchester United kicked off their Champions League campaign with a hard working 1-0 win over a very good Galatasaray side. In an open game there was plenty of action and chances, but the game was won early thanks to a wonderful Michael Carrick goal.
After their struggles in Europe last season, Man Utd will be pleased to start with a clean sheet and 3 points.

My Beautifully Red Top 5 GIF moments are…

1. Patrice Evra skill, Paul Scholes Pass

Two nice pieces of skill by Patrice Evra see him get past 2 men before laying the ball off to Paul Scholes, as the crowd urge him to shoot he pulls out a stunning outside of the boot pass to the unmarked Antonio Valencia on the wing. Class.

2. Antonio Valencia double nutmeg

Antonio Valencia shows off his skills as he nutmegs not 1 but 2 different defenders as he slices through the Galatasary defence.

3. David de Gea Saves

Man Utd will look back and thank De Gea for keeping them in this game as Galatasary broke and looked certain to draw level, the Spanish Keeper did what he does best, produce brilliant saves.

4. Shinji Kagawa touch

Despite getting a blatant shove in the back as the ball went skywards, Kagawa uses his strength to hold his position and control the ball beautifully before passing the ball over his shoulder to Valencia. More lovely play by our August Player of the Month.

5. Robin van Persie flick

This is becoming a regular feature already on this site as Van Persie displays how clever a footballer he is with a delightful little flick pass to present Kagawa a shooting chance
