How to watch Villarreal vs Manchester United in the 2021-22 Champions League from India?
The latest test of Manchester United’s awfulness comes at Villarreal, currently an unimpressive 12th in the Spanish top flight table – they drew seven of their first eight games this season, six of those in La Liga, which didn’t really help – but with two wins and just one goal conceded in their last three matches seem to be coming back into form. United will hope they can do likewise after disposing of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following Saturday’s abysmal defeat at Watford. His temporary-for-now replacement, Michael Carrick, certainly seems to have the right priorities: “What matters now is getting the right results,” he said. Though I suppose that is also what mattered before.
Carrick also revealed how the players reacted to Solskjaer’s departure. “All things considered it went really well,” he said. “Everyone adapted in a really classy manner.”
It seems pretty clear to me that he must have said that everyone adapted in a really classy manor, specifically the palatial abodes to which they retreated when they were released early from training because like usual they skipped the tactical work, though I suppose I could be mistaken.
Anyway, this is Villarreal’s 12th Champions League game against an English club and they are yet to win one (they’ve had 12 draws, including four in five games against United). The curious thing about that is that they’ve played five Europa League games against English clubs and won three of them, so it seems they suffer from entirely competition-specific Anglophobia. Perhaps tonight is the night that all changes. Welcome, let’s find out together.SIGN UP NOW!
