The Reds twice held two-goal leads against Galatasaray, with the United captain assisting Alejandro Garnacho’s rocket and then finding the net himself during the opening 20 minutes in Istanbul.
Hakim Ziyech halved the deficit with a free-kick before the break, but Scott McTominay then poked home Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s cross to double our advantage.
Another Ziyech set piece was followed by a brilliant strike from Kerem Akturkoglu and, with United somehow not able to score a fourth in the closing stages, Erik ten Hag’s side had dropped points from a winning position again in this season’s competition.
Our captain conceded that the game management from the players has not been up to scratch, with the Reds also letting slip advantageous positions in the reverse fixture, and against Copenhagen in Denmark.
“We conceded really bad goals…”
