Messi, Suarez and Neymar (who was particularly dangerous). As good as these players are United will be disappointed they afforded them so much space in the centre of the park. I lost count of the times Barca was able to progress the ball unopposed down the spine — and from that position dangerous balls were fed out wide forcing United to defend facing their own goal and resulting in 12 first-half shots by Barca. Blind was caught out on a number of occasions and if it wasn’t for De Gea United would surely have lost by a much larger margin. As I mentioned, Rashford and Pogba were United’s best.
It was coming! Messi dribbles down the centre, slips the ball towards Neymar in the box. Valencia is there first but he spins on the ball and Neymar picks up the crumbs. He performs a pirouette and slams it home from close range.
