Manchester United have lost 2-1 in their first game in the Champions League since 2014. They also lost their best defender in the new season as Luke Show broke his leg fracture in two places. Today’s game was United’s first game in the European finest trophy since April 2014, when they have played in the Soccer Champions League for the last time.

But it wasn’t a very happy comeback for Louis van Gaal’s side. The game was stopped for almost 15 minutes as young English left-back received help after being a victim of Hector Moreno’s heavy tackle. Luke Shaw was subbed off in the 25th minute. After this incident, ‘Red Devils’ were more motivated than before and they finally have found the way to the net in 41th minute, when former PSV player, Memphis Depay has scored his 3rd goal in the Champions League this season.

However, they had the lead for only 5 minutes, as Hector Moreno managed to score in the last minute of the first half of the game. Manchester United started to dominating the game in the last 45 minutes, but they couldn’t find the proper way to beat PSV’s defence. The Dutch side took full advantage of United’s weaknesses and sealed all three points in the 56th minute, when Maxime Lestienne delivered perfect cross for Luciano Narsingh, who scored his first goal this season.

Louis van Gall tried to score an equalizer, but even his new hero, Anthony Martial couldn’t make a difference for the visitors. Young striker tried to exchange some passes with another new player at Old Trafford, Memphis Depay but thier actions were very chaotic and they couldn't score another goal.

United continued to push forward, what allowed their opponents to break on the counter-attack, but PSV couldn't take advantage of the tactical mistakes from Manchester United.

After the first game of the Champions League group stage, Manchester United is 3rd in their group, but there are five games left, so they can still go to the next round easily.

Unfortunetly they need to wait for their first Champions League victory in the new season.
