  • a red card well deserved.in competition you have to hold your reserve.Steve hates MAN utd.he was too malicious in act.that could even win him another f.a ban.as for MAN utd.Rooney should have left the penalty for Mata to try hit his hat trick but all that Matas is 3 points and a stunning bicycle kick from the pro.
