[GIFS] MUFC v Cluj: 5 United Moments of class

Manchester United faced off against a CFR Cluj side who were still in with a chance of qualification to the knockout stages of the Champions League.
The Reds, already qualified as Group winners, took the chance to rest several key players ahead of the weekends Derby, and the performance was very much that off a game that did not matter. United played well in spurts but never really dominated the game and testing the Cluj defence and ended up losing to a wondergoal.

There were several great gmoments to enjoy in defeat, here are my Top 5 GIF moments…

1. Danny Welbeck run and skill

One of the highlights of the game for United was this brilliant run and skill by Welbeck. Running straight at the defence with pace he pulls out a stunning pirouette before passing the ball out wide to Wayne Rooney.

2. Wayne Rooney chip effort

This would have been a fitting goal amidst the 12 GIFs of Cantona, as Wayne Rooney attempted a brilliant little chip that the keeper does well to save at full stretch.

3. Danny Welbeck chest pass

The ball passed down the line by Phil Jones gets the full beautiful chest pass treatment from Welbeck which sets Wayne Rooney away.

4. Javier Hernandez turn

I love this little turn by Chicharito. There could even be a little nutmeg in there as he beautifully turns his defender before being brought down.

5. Nick Powell pass

Nick Powell made his 2nd United start and it would have been another great learning curve for the youngster who again showed glimpses what an exciting prospect he is . Here he shows the ability to play a final ball as this nice pass get Wayne Rooney in behind the defence. His attempted square pass is blocked.

    as soon as i saw the welbeck spin i knew that was one. there is a youtube clip of a certain ruud van nistelrooy teaching a very young welbeck that particular skill…
