The match didn’t exactly go to plan though with the home side scoring first and United having to come from behind twice to ultimately draw the game 2-2.
The Red Devils are yet to win an away match this season but on a more positive note both Marouane Fellaini and Daley Blind recorded their first goals for the club.
United have had a reasonably easy fixture list and yet still sit below Southampton and West Ham United. A big test will be their next fixture, a home game against leaders Chelsea, where the club will need to show a big improvement if they are going to pick up any points.
Worryingly Angel Di Maria, who has been one of their best players this season, was substituted after 76 minutes due to a thigh injury. The draw keeps United sixth with 12 points from eight games.
