5 United GIFs from the Reading win feat Evans, Evra and RVP

Manchester United took full advantage of dropped points by their nearest rivals by going home from their trip to Reading with all 3 points.
They didn’t do it the easy way however, as seems common practice for United this season they went behind, twice, but as they have shown all season are capable of scoring goals to come back. A crazy first half saw the Reds go in at half time 4-3 up!
A clean sheet the in the 2nd half followed to ensure United went to Manchester City next weekend with a 3 points advantage.

All 4 Goals involved some brilliant play, but moments of beauty were hard to come by in a 2nd half were United kept tight and looked to keep Reading out. I have however, found my Top 5 GIF moments from the game…

1. Anderson Pass

United’s form midfielder, scored a brilliant equaliser but its his involvement in the build up that I am picking. His first time, on the volley pass out wide is immense. He goes for a return pass and slams the ball home.

2. Robin van Persie Backheel

Receiving the ball inside the Reading box, Van Persie pulls out this exquisite backheel pass for Ashley Young to get the the byline and win a corner…

3. Jonny Evans touch


…and from that corner, Jonny Evans shows his brilliant touch to control a long corner. As he gets control of the ball he is knocked over and United win a penalty.

4. Patrice Evra touch


A long cross goes over everyone and falls to Patice Evra at the back post who controls it first time before passing the ball over the defender to Ashley young to clear.

5. Phil Jones footwork

He may be more about energy and drive than skill but Phil Jones shows some nice footwork to keep the ball in play and jink past 2 Reading defenders.

  1. Daniel

    Such a sweet momemt by Welbeck, looking after his teammate.

    That Anderson goal is exceptional: the volley passed, good weighted pass by Young and just slammed passed the keeper. God, I hope his injury won’t keep him away for long orhave a negative impact on his form!
