Predictably, most of the post-match talk is about Kiko Macheda: the Italian scored an unintended winner at Sunderland to send United back on top of the table.

‘He’s got something special about him, the boy,’ Fergie said.

‘He has a good eye for goal, a terrific physique and is not shy about playing under pressure – that’s credit to him.

‘He wasn’t fazed by anything. Right away, he got involved in the game and he had a good 20 minutes for us.’


He’s willing to move off the ball, fight for it, take on people: he’s got the talent, definitely. As for the rest of the team… well, Fergie was right to say that it’s the three points that matters…

Now the big job: Porto, where we have to win. Surely it’s beyond even Macheda to save us again if we don’t play well enough? Surely?
