Re: MU Jadwal & Hasil Pertandingan

Report :
Barclays Premier League
Old Trafford, 18 October 2008
United 4 West Brom 0 (Rooney 56, Ronaldo 69, Berbatov 72, Nani 90)

Four second-half goals helped a fluent United see off West Bromwich Albion’s gallant challenge at Old Trafford.

The Reds had been frustrated by the visitors – in particular keeper Scott Carson – for nearly an hour but finally made the breakthrough when Wayne Rooney finished neatly for his fourth goal in as many games.

Cristiano Ronaldo made the game safe with a left-footed shot before Dimitar Berbatov prodded home and substitute Nani added gloss to the scoreline in injury-time.

Rooney was again irrepressible and the only downside to the win was an injury to Patrice Evra, who was forced off in the first half after taking a knock to his leg.

Despite the impending Champions League visit of Celtic, Sir Alex Ferguson opted to field a strong side. It was perhaps a sign of respect for the Baggies, who arrived on the back of three straight league wins.

Right-back Rafael was handed a first Premier League start, with Ryan Giggs playing in the centre of midfield, Ji-sung Park on the left and Ronaldo on the right. Carlos Tevez and Anderson were omitted from the squad after their international exertions in midweek.

West Brom began with a confidence that belied their underdog status, Chris Brunt firing straight at Edwin van der Sar when well placed on the edge of  the box.

But United – in particular the first three goalscorers – looked in the mood as well and the forward trio were involved in most of the Reds’ most promising attacks.

Rooney looked to have given United the lead midway through the first half when he controlled Ronaldo’s pass, cut inside and dinked the ball home, only for referee Mark Halsey to harshly penalise the striker for a push on Gianni Zuiverloon.

Soon after Rooney had another chance to put United ahead but his header from Giggs’ left-wing free-kick was well parried by Carson.

Ten minutes before the break Evra was replaced by John O’Shea and the Frenchman looked to be moving uncomfortably as he left the pitch.

But United continued to press and as the half neared its conclusion Berbatov was thwarted as he prepared to pull the trigger inside the box.

The Reds began the second period in much the same vein, with Ronaldo providing extra impetus by drifting into the centre of the attack.

Rooney again looked most likely to break the deadlock but was twice denied by excellent Carson parries. Yet the Baggies’ keeper could do little about the striker’s top-drawer finish when it finally arrived in the 56th minute. United broke at pace, Berbatov played a ball into the path of Rooney, who charged down the left, cut inside Ryan Donk and shot low to Carson’s right.

Rooney's animated celebration suggested relief as much as anything else after his earlier frustrations in front of goal. He almost grabbed a second minutes later after being played in by Giggs, only to be denied by Carson yet again.

But a second goal did arrive with 20 minutes left and this time it was Rooney who was the provider with a through-ball to Ronaldo, who shot left-footed underneath Carson.

And almost immediately Berbatov made it three with his first goal at Old Trafford. A left-wing cross from Nani, on for Park, found its way via a deflection to the Bulgarian, who instinctively stuck out a boot and guided the ball home.

West Brom battled bravely but lacked the necessary quality in front of goal. Substitute Ishmael Miller had their best chance with two minutes left but his shot whistled just wide.

And Nani made a satisfying evening for the champions even better when he converted Rooney’s cross from close range in stoppage-time.

Laporan Sabtu 18-10-2008 Liga Inggris

MU - WBA : 4 - 0

MANCHESTER, SABTU - Setelah tampil mencemaskan di babak pertama, Manchester United akhirnya berhasil menundukkan West Bromwich Albion dengan skor 4-0. MU kini masuk jajaran top four klasemen Liga Inggris di bawah Chelsea, Liverpool, dan Arsenal.

Bermain di Old Trafford, Sabtu (18/10), MU sebagai tuan rumah sebetulnya terus menekan West Brom sejak menit pertama. Dukungan penonton tuan rumah membuat Cristiano ronaldo dan Wayne Rooney semakin gencar membombardir gawang Scott Carson. "Setan Merah" bahkan sempat bersorak ketika Rooney menceploskan bola ke gawang Carson pada menit ke-22. Namun, wasit membatalkan gol tersebut karena menganggap Rooney menjatuhkan bek lawan sebelum ketika hendak menerima umpan dari Ronaldo.

Tak lama berselang, Rooney kembali mengancam ketika menanduk bola dari sepak pojok. Kali ini Carson bermain gemilang karena berhasil menepis bola tersebut. Setelah itu, giliran Darren Fletcher dan Dimitar Berbatov mencoba menggagahi gawang Carson, tapi sampai babak pertama usai kedudukan tetap imbang tanpa gol.

Di babak kedua, serangan The Red Devils tak berhenti mengalir ke daerah pertahanan The Baggies. Sembilan menit berjalan, tendangan keras Berbatov kembali menguji ketahanan Carson. Lagi-lagi kiper internasional Inggris tersebut mampu menjaga keperawanan gawangnya.

Pada menit ke-56, barulah MU mencetak gol melalui serangan balik dari Rooney. Mendapat umpan dari tengah, Rooney berlari kencang di sayap kiri dalam kawalan Ryan Donk. Begitu masuk kotak penalti, striker yang namanya sedang melambung di Inggris itu menekuk arah bola ke kanan. Tanpa diduga, ia melepas tembakan ke tiang dekat padahal Donk sudah siap mengeblok tendangan ke arah tiang jauh. Bola menyusur tanah meluncur deras ke gawang Carson dan kali ini sang kiper keok.

Ronaldo yang sejak babak pertama selalu gagal menembus bek lawan membuat penonton kembali bersorak pada menit ke-69. Pergerakannya menarik Rooney untuk menyodorkan bola kepadanya. Setelah menggiring sejenak, CR7 langsung melepas tembakan menyusur tanah yang melewati celah kaki Carson.

Tiga menit kemudian, giliran Berbatov merobek gawang The Throstles. Tendangan Nani dari pojok kiri menerobos kumpulan pemain di depan gawang Carson. Fletcher mencoba membelokkan bola yang melewati punggungnya, tapi gagal. Bola terus meluncur dan mengarah ke Berba. Striker Bulgaria ini langsung memancal bola dan menembus tengah gawang. Inilah gol pertama Berba di Premier League sejak bermain di pekan kedua musim ini.

Unggul tiga gol tak membuat keganasan "Setan Merah" surut. Di menit terakhir, crossing Rooney kepada Nani di sayap kiri mampu dimanfaatkan dengan baik oleh winger Portugal tersebut. Sekali sontek, bola bergulir ke belakang Carson.

Meski kebobolan tiga gol, kiper Scott Carson patut diacungi jempol karena kepiawaiannya mampu membuat gawang West Brom tak kebobolan lebih banyak. Striker Wayne Rooney pantas disebut sebagai bintang MU karena gol pembukanya mampu memompa semangat "Setan Merah".

Susunan pemain:
Man. United: 1-Edwin Van der Sar; 21-Rafael da Silva (2-Garry Neville 66), 5-Rio Ferdinand, 15-Nemanja Vidic, 3-Patrice Evra (22-John O'Shea 36); 7-Cristiano Ronaldo, 24-Darren Fletcher, 11-Ryan Giggs, 13-Ji-Sung Park (17-Nani 69); 9-Dimitar Berbatov, 10-Wayne Rooney

West Brom: 19-Scott Carson; 22-Gianni Zuiverloon, 30-Ryan Donk, 26-Jonas Olsson, 3-Paul Robinson; 27-James Morrison, 7-Robert Koren (16-Luke Moore 73), 28-Borja Valero, 8-Jonathan Greening, 11-Chris Brunt; 9-Roman Bednar (10-Ishmael Miller 53)

Report UEFA Champions League, Group E
Old Trafford, 21 October 2008

MANCHESTER UNITED 3 (Berbatov 30, 51 Rooney 76) - CELTIC 0

 Dimitar Berbatov and Wayne Rooney were on target again as United outclassed Celtic to stay in control of Champions League Group E.

In a game predictably billed as the ‘Battle of Britain’, the Scottish champions were overran by a dominant Red Army at Old Trafford.

Berbatov produced poacher’s finishes in each half to put United in command, before Rooney continued his prolific October scoring streak with an excellent strike from the edge of the box.

The hoardes of travelling Celtic fans had little to cheer about as United cruised to victory, recording another clean sheet to make it eight games without defeat in all competitions.

The Reds’ starting line-up had produced two major talking points. Cristiano Ronaldo was named in the side, despite suggestions that he would be rested, while Rio Ferdinand was replaced by Jonny Evans after picking up a groin strain in training on Monday.

Ronaldo had the game's first chance but blasted over from 20 yards after neat interplay involving Berbatov, Gary Neville and Anderson. Soon after Rooney’s spectacular bicycle kick from Nani's cross was blocked by Mark Wilson on the six-yard line.

Celtic had early moments of their own, with Edwin van der Sar twice called into action to save a low Aiden McGeady shot and Gary Caldwell's vicious dipping volley.

But United always looked the more likely to open the scoring and, like the last time these sides met at Old Trafford in 2006, the home side’s opener came on the half-hour.

Nani swung in a corner from the left and, at the second attempt, John O’Shea stabbed the ball forward for Berbatov to flick home on the turn from three yards.

United’s forward line were full of running, movement and one-touch passing, harrying Celtic’s defence into rushed clearances and desperate blocks.

Darren Fletcher had a glorious opportunity to double United’s advantage on the stroke of half-time but fired over from eight yards after controlling Rooney’s cross.

But it didn’t take long after the break for Berbatov to score his – and United’s – second goal with another predatory finish.

Anderson was fouled by Scott Brown 25 yards out, Artur Boruc could only parry Ronaldo’s resulting free-kick and Berbatov was left with the simple task of slotting home the rebound.

It was the Bulgarian’s third goal in two games and fourth in two Champions League outings. And to think that people were doubting him a month ago.

Rooney thought he’d got on the scoresheet soon after but was flagged offside - although replays showed he wasn't - as he ran onto Fletcher’s neat slide-rule pass.

Berbatov looked disappointed when he was called off on the hour mark, but the two-goal forward left the field to a standing ovation, with Neville also replaced by Wes Brown.

Berbatov’s replacement Carlos Tevez flashed narrowly wide minutes  later but United soon had a third as Gordon Strachan's men were opened up once more.

The move started with van der Sar’s throw to Fletcher, who sprayed the ball out wide to Tevez. The Argentine's simple ball across goal allowed Rooney to control, make room for himself and fire his fourth goal in four games from 18 yards.

Not even the most staunch of Celtic fans could deny the goal was deserved. It confirmed United’s superiority in an enjoyable game and, with Villarreal hammering Aalborg, kept the holders top of Group E on goal difference.

Team line-ups

MANCHESTER UNITED: Van der Sar; Neville (Brown 60), Vidic, Evans, O'Shea; Ronaldo (Park 82), Anderson, Fletcher, Nani; Berbatov (Tevez 60), Rooney.
Subs not used: Kuszczak, Giggs, Rafael, Gibson.

CELTIC: Boruc; Wilson, Loovens, Caldwell, McManus, Naylor; Nakamura (Hartley 62), S Brown, Robson (Maloney 62), McGeady; McDonald (Sheridan 76).

Report : Barclays Premier League
Goodison Park, 25 October 2008

Fellaini 64

Fletcher 21

LIVERPOOL, SABTU - Manchester United gagal mempertahankan kemenangan di babak pertama dan harus puas bermain seri 1-1 lawan tuan rumah Everton, Sabtu (25/10).

Pertandingan yang berlangsung di Goodison Park tersebut berlangsung sengit sejak babak pertama. MU mengendalikan permainan dan menerapkan tempo tinggi untuk menyerang The Toffees terutama melalui Cristiano Ronaldo dari sayap kanan.

Meski tertekan, Everton juga berani melakukan serangan melalui Marouane Fellaini dari tengah serta Steven Pienaar dari kanan. Namun, keduanya sering terbentur oleh permainan apik Wes Brown dan Nemanja Vidic.

Gelombang serangan "Setan Merah" akhirnya menuai hasil pada menit ke-22. Ryan Giggs yang sebelumnya tak begitu banyak menyuplai bola menyodorkan bola kepada Darren Fletcher di lingkaran kotak penalti. Fletcher langsung membawa bola ke kiri, lalu melepas tendangan menyusur tanah ke tiang jauh.

Gol itu meruntuhkan permainan Everton di sisa waktu menjelang jeda. Lima menit usai gol Fletcher, Ronaldo hampir menambah gol bagi MU. Tendangannya melesat ke kanan gawang, tapi kiper Tim Howard berhasil menepisnya sambil menjatuhkan diri.

Semenit berikutnya, Wayne Rooney dan Giggs kembali mengancam gawang Howard. Tandukan Rooney terlalu ke tengah sehingga Howard masih dapat menepisnya. Bola lalu jatuh ke kaki Giggs, tapi tendangannya kembali ditepis kiper berambut cepak tersebut.

Tujuh menit sebelum turun minum, Rooney kembali membuang kesempatan indah. Pemain yang mengincar gol ke-100 di laga tersebut berhasil menghentikan crossing Park Ji-Sung di depan gawang Howard. Rooney mengirim bola ke kiri tapi Jagielka mengadang dan membuangnya keluar. Skor pun tak berubah hingga istirahat.

Sejak kick off babak kedua, tuan rumah langsung mengambil inisiatif menyerang. Kali ini The Toffees mengendalikan tempo permainan dan cara ini berhasil menekan pertahanan MU. Mikel Arteta terus menyayat sayap kanan MU yang sejak semula dipertahankan dengan baik oleh Wes Brown.

Pienaar juga tak henti-hentinya membuka celah dari sayap kanan dan kali ini ia leluasa menyuplai bola. Hasilnya langsung terlihat pada menit ke-63. Ia menyodorkan bola kepada Phil Neville di dekat sudut kiri lapangan lawan. Mantan bek kanan MU itu kemudian mengirim umpan lambung ke depan gawang dan Fellaini menemukan bola lewat kepalanya. Tandukannya jatuh ke sudut kanan gawang Edwin van der Sar dan skor pun kini imbang 1-1.

Tersengat oleh gol balasan, MU mencoba bangkit dan ngotot mencari kemenangan. Namun, mereka justru kurang sabar mengolah bola. Ronaldo, misalnya, kurang tenang saat menerima umpan matang dari Nani. Ia tak terkawal oleh lawan di sayap kiri, tapi sepakannya melenceng.

Kapten Rio Ferdinand bahkan membuat blunder yang nyaris berbuah fatal. Sodoran bolanya kepada Van der Sar dicuri oleh Ayegbeni Yakubu. Untung bagi MU, sepakan Yakubu mengenai mistar dan pergi meninggalkan gawang.

Hasil imbang ini tak mengubah posisi MU di tempat kelima klasemen. Mereka kini satu poin di bawah Arsenal yang baru bermain lagi pada Minggu (26/10) malam.

Susunan pemain:
Everton: 24-Tim Howard; 5-Joleon Lescott, 6-Phil Jagielka, 4-Joseph Yobo, 18-Phil Neville; 20-Steven Pienaar, 21-Leon Osman, 25-Marouane Fellaini, 10-Mikel Arteta; 9-Louis Saha (28-Victor Anichebe 93), 22-Ayegbeni Yakubu (14-James Vaughan 88)
Man. United: 1-Edwin Van der Sar; 3-Patrice Evra, 15-Nemanja Vidic, 5-Rio Ferdinand, 6-Wes Brown; 13-Ji-Sung Park (8-Anderson 67), 11-Ryan Giggs, 24-Darren Fletcher (32-Carlos Tevez 78), 7-Cristiano Ronaldo; 9-Dimitar Berbatov, 10-Wayne Rooney (17-Nani 71)

Report : Barclays Premier League
Old Trafford, Wed 29 October

Ronaldo 14, 30


 United won with the minimum of fuss against West Ham, but this was still a performance very much to get excited about.

Cristiano Ronaldo struck both goals on a night he paraded his World Player of the Year award, while Dimitar Berbatov shone and Carlos Tevez, Nani, Anderson and substitute Wayne Rooney all showed glimpses of why this is one of the finest collections of players Sir Alex has ever had. There were plenty of tricks, flicks, skills and thrills to provide warmth as Manchester’s winter chill made an early appearance.

Sir Alex handed Carlos Tevez his first start in a month against his old club, as Rooney dropped to the bench, while there was no place for birthday boy Edwin van der Sar – he turned 38 today. He was replaced by Tomasz Kuszczak and Rafael was favoured at right-back ahead of Gary Neville and Wes Brown.

United set out with the same attacking intent that has markedly changed the Reds’ goal return in the past month; the first chance came in the third minute when Nani squared the ball to Berbatov, but Hammers skipper Matthew Upson got enough on the ball to deflect the striker’s shot over the bar.

Nani went close himself two minutes later after a neat move from the Reds. Darren Fletcher’s lofted pass was nodded into the Portuguese winger’s path by Anderson, and Nani’s first-time, left-foot shot flew narrowly past the far upright. Whether it had all come a little too easy to Sir Alex’s men in the opening exchanges, a short spell followed where red passes too frequently went astray, and players were caught in possession. But it didn’t last long.
Before kick-off Old Trafford paid tribute to Ronaldo as he collected his FIFPro World Player of the Year accolade on the pitch. So often last season Ronaldo provided the goals just when United needed them, so it was no surprise that he was the man to step forward. Nani was the provider, his centred ball across the penalty area finding his countryman free, and Ronny struck the ball left-footed past Robert Green.

United’s relentless forward march soon paid dividends with the second goal arriving 15 minutes before the break. It was a goal of sublime creation. Anderson’s channelled pass set Berbatov on his way, but with the ball tight to the byline the Bulgarian had precious little space to operate in. No problem. He stopped the ball with his left foot, pirouetted and flicked the ball over James Collins’ challenge with his right. Having skipped away it was a matter of squaring the ball across the six yard box for Ronaldo to slide in and grab his second of the night.

There was a palpable feeling of resignation among the away supporters as they ironically chanted “we’re going to win 3-2”, and it’s something that opposition teams have become accustomed to doing against the Reds: accepting that, at times, United are unplayable.

The second half started with the Reds comfortably in control; without any strong urgency to rack up a big score, but always displaying a desire to entertain, Berbatov in particular working through his full repertoire of languid yet awe-inspiring touches.

And if you think this article displays a lack of incident from Gianfranco Zola’s men, it’s simply that there was so little to report. It was all one-way traffic; exquisite football, at times carnival-like stuff, and West Ham had no response. Tellingly, a glance at the home bench showed Rooney and Ryan Giggs, among the Reds’ best performers in recent weeks, while Michael Carrick, Gary Neville, Ji-Sung Park, Ben Foster and John O’Shea provided further options perhaps only Chelsea can match.

Rooney and Carrick entered the fray with 20 minutes to go and West Ham hearts must have sank further still. Even Anderson was taking long-range shots from 30 yards.

Of course, the finest football does not guarantee trophies, but if United can perform like this throughout the season, the top honours will certainly be attainable - and there will be plenty of great football to look forward to along the way.

CR7 Borong Gol MU

 MANCHESTER, KAMIS - Manchester United (MU) tak terbendung ketika menjamu West Ham United di pekan ke-10 Premier League, Kamis (30/10) dini hari WIB. The Red Devils tampil sangat impresif untuk mempecundangi tamunya itu dengan skor 2-0 lewat gol yang diborong Cristiano Ronaldo.

Namun, kemenangan di Old Trafford itu tak memengaruhi posisi mereka di klasemen sementara. "Setan Merah" tetap di urutan enam, karena dengan total 18 poin, mereka masih kalah bersaing dengan Liverpool di puncak klasemen dengan total 26 angka, serta Aston Villa di urutan lima dengan 20 poin.

Hanya saja, hasil tersebut membuat persaingan di papan atas kian seru, apalagi pada saat bersamaan Arsenal cuma bisa menuai satu poin menyusul hasil imbang 4-4 saat menjamu Tottenham Hotspur.

MU yang akhir pekan lalu harus puas bermain imbang 1-1 lawan Everton tampil agresif sejak peluit kick-off berbunyi. Tim besutan Sir Alex Ferguson itu terus mengurung pertahanan West Ham yang sangat kesulitan untuk keluar dari tekanan.

Peluang demi peluang yang diperoleh akhirnya bisa dimaksimalkan pada menit ke-14. Ronaldo yang pada awal pekan ini baru saja mendapat penghargaan FIFPro memecah kebuntuan MU setelah bola tendangan kaki kirinya menyambut umpan silang Nani bersarang di pojok kiri bawah gawang, tanpa bisa dijangkau Robert Green.

Gol tersebut memantik semangat tuan rumah yang dalam laga tak diperkuat Wayne Rooney--jadi cadangan. Aliran serangan pun semakin deras sehingga mereka bisa menggandakan keunggulan pada menit ke-30, juga melalui kaki Ronaldo.

Kali ini, Dimitar Berbatov yang paling berperan untuk memberikan kesempatan kepada CR7--sebutan untuk Ronaldo--mencetak gol keduanya. Dengan sebuah gerakan memukau, striker asal Bulgaria yang digaet dari Tottenham pada awal musim tersebut lebih dulu mengecoh bek kanan West Ham.

Setelah itu, dia menyisir pinggir lapangan yang sejajar dengan gawang West Ham, sebelum melepaskan umpan datar ke mulut gawang. Ronaldo yang mendapat kawalan, lebih cepat mencocor bola. Sambil menjatuhkan badan, gelandang Portugal itu menyambut si kulit bundar dengan sentuhan kaki kanannya sehingga bergetarlah jala gawang West Ham.

Pada babak kedua, tim tamu tetap harus menerima badai serangan. Masuknya Rooney yang menggantikan Nani membuat MU semakin mendominasi pertandingan. Sayang, banyak peluang yang dimiliki selalu gagal, entah karena tembakan tak tepat sasaran ataupun karena aksi gemilang Green sehingga skor 2-0 tak berubah sampai laga usai.

Old Trafford, Sat 1 November

(Ronaldo 3, 44; Carrick 29, Vidic 57)

(Cousin 23, Mendy 69, Geovanni (pen) 82)

 MANCHESTER, SABTU - Manchester United merangsek ke posisi ketiga klasemen sementara Liga Inggris setelah mengalahkan tamunya, Hull City, dengan skor 4-3(3-1).

Bertindak sebagai tuan rumah di Stadion Old Trafford, Sabtu (1/11), MU sama sekali tak memberikan ruang gerak bagi Hull untuk mengembangkan permainan. Kecepatan serangan "Setan Merah" langsung berbuah pada menit ketiga.

Cristiano Ronaldo menjadi pencetak gol pembuka setelah tembakannya mengarah ke kiri gawang Hull yang dijaga Boaz Myhill. Inilah gol kelima Ronaldo di Liga Primer musim ini. Rooney hampir menambah gol lima belas menit kemudian, tapi tendangannya melayang tipis di atas mistar.

The Tigers justru mampu menyamakan skor pada menit ke-23. Daniel Cousin menanduk tendangan bebas Andy Dawson dari sayap kanan. Bola meluncut ke pojok kanan gawang Edwin van der Sar.

Enam menit kemudian, Michael Carrick membuat pendukung tuan rumah bersorak. Mendapat umpan dari Dimitar Berbatov di lapangan tengah, Carrick membawa bola ke tepi kiri kotak penalti. Sepakan kaki kirinya membuat bola menerpa tiang jauh dan masuk ke gawang.

Dua menit menjelang turun minum, Ronaldo menambah gol bagi MU. Kali ini tandukannya membelah gawang Myhill.

Di babak kedua, The Red Devils terus menunjukkan dominasi serangannya. Pergerakan Ronaldo, Berbatov, dan Wayne Rooney benar-benar mengacaukan pertahanan George Boateng dkk. Empat menit usai jeda, tendangan silang Berbatov hampir mengenai sasaran. Demikian pula Ronaldo, yang lepas dari kawalan Kamil Zayatte di kotak penalti.

MU akhirnya mencetak gol keempat melalui Nemanja Vidic pada menit ke-57. Tendangan pojok Wayne Rooney disambut tendangan first time yang masuk melalui celah kosong di tubuh Myhill.

Unggul 4-1, MU mulai mengendurkan tekanan. Hal ini dimanfaatkan oleh Bernard Mendy yang masuk menggantikan Bryan Hughes. Kesalahan Patrice Evra saat hendak memberikan bola kepada Van der Sar dimanfaatkan Mendy dengan sangat baik. Ia mencungkil bola melewati kiper dan bola masuk ke gawang meski Vidic berhasil mengeluarkannya dari sarang.

Sepuluh menit sebelum bubar, semangat Hull kembali membuahkan hasil. Rio Ferdinand melakukan kesalahan setelah menarik Mendy di kotak penalti. Wasit menunjuk titik putih dan Geovanni sukses memerdaya Van der Sar.

Tambahan tiga angka ini sudah cukup bagi MU untuk menggeser posisi Arsenal di posisi ketiga. MU kini memiliki nilai 21, satu poin di atas The Gunners yang tak mendapat tambahan angka setelah kalah 1-2 di tangan tuan rumah Stoke City.

Re: MU Jadwal & Hasil Pertandingan

 Report: United 4 Hull City 3

The Tigers roared and roared but the Reds triumphed 4-3 in a pulsating encounter at Old Trafford.

Hull’s fairytale start to the season looked a distant memory when Nemanja Vidic sent United 4-1 up on 57 minutes, but goals from Bernard Mendy and Geovanni made for nervy final moments at the Theatre of Dreams.

Hulls’s fans certainly thought they were in dreamland, as they sung “this is the best trip we’ve ever been on”. All good things must end, though, and when referee Mike Dean blew the final whistle it was United celebrating three precious Premier League points.

At his pre-match press conference, Sir Alex said he was confident he could keep Berbatov, Rooney and Tevez all happy. Against Hull, it was Rooney and Berbatov who were charged with leading the line.

Wes Brown was left out after picking up a minor knock on his ankle. Gary Neville occupied the right back berth in what was his 550th United appearance, while Cristiano Ronaldo played his 250th Reds match. Michael Carrick started his first match since mid-September after returning from injury, with Darren Fletcher relegated to the bench.

Edwin van der Sar also returned in goal but he’d barely touched the ball before the Reds went in front. Surprise, surprise, it was that man Ronaldo, with his third of the week. Dimitar Berbatov drilled the ball towards the Portuguese winger, who took one touch with his back to goal before swiveling to hit a sweet half-volley in off the post.

By the manager’s own admission, United took their foot off the gas against West Ham in midweek after going 2-0 up. Against Hull, however, the Reds continued to press. Berbatov produced a sublime piece of juggling skill in the middle of the park before releasing Nani down the left wing. His cross sat up invitingly at the back post but Kamil Zayatte bravely headed clear with Ronaldo poised to pounce.

Rooney then fired inches over from the edge of the box on 17 minutes but Hull found the net next, summer signing Daniel Cousin flicking an Andy Dawson free-kick into the far corner on 23 minutes.

Since their arrival in the top flight, Phil Brown’s side have earned a reputation for being well organised, and Hull’s equaliser certainly looked like a training-ground set-piece. United have now conceded twice in a week from headers, however, and that will worry Sir Alex.

Six minutes later, United’s lead was restored, as City’s defenders backed off Michael Carrick. Released by Berbatov, Carrick advanced, picked his spot and fired across Hull goalkeeper Boaz Myhill and into the net. It was a tremendous strike and a fitting way to celebrate his return to the side.

Rooney next had the ball in the net, but his effort was ruled out by the referee assistant’s offside flag. Never mind: Ronaldo made it 3-1 on 44 minutes, heading in Nani’s corner via a slight touch off former Reds defender Paul McShane.

Neither manager made changes at the break and it was Sir Alex’s men who continued crafting chances early in the second half. Berbatov and Ronaldo both dragged shots wide before Nemanja Vidic made it 4-1, tapping in Rooney’s corner from close range.

The scoring didn’t stop there, however. Hull substitute Bernard Mendy dinked the ball over van der Sar to pull another back for the visitors before referee Mike Dean awarded Hull a dubious penalty in the 82nd minute after Mendy and Ferdinand tangled inside the area.

Ex-Manchester City forward Geovanni stepped up to fire the ball into the net and give Hull real hope of earning a dramatic, last-gasp draw. Rattled somewhat, the Reds hung on for the last 10 minutes to see out the match, clinch victory and finish the day in third place.

Giggs Selamatkan MU

Report : UEFA Champions League
5 November 2008, Celtic Park

McDonald 13

Giggs 84

GLASGOW, KAMIS - Ryan Giggs menjadi penyelamat Manchester United (MU) dari kekalahan kala bertandang ke kandang Glasgow Celtic, dalam lanjutan Liga Champions Grup E, Rabu atau Kamis (6/11) dini hari.

Hasil itu menunda langkah MU ke babak 16 besar. Sebab, pada saat yang sama Villarreal juga ditahan Aalborg 2-2. Sehingga, secara teori MU dan Villarreal yang mengantongi nilai 8 belum bisa ke babak selanjutnya. Hanya, peluang mereka sangat besar karena hanya butuh hasil seri di babak berikutnya.

Menyerang lebih banyak, tapi justru kebobolan lebih dulu. Itu dialami MU sejak babak pertama.

Bermain tanpa Wayne Rooney dan Edwin van der Sar, MU sebenarnya tetap mampu melancarkan serangan-serangan yang gencar. Namun, pertahanan Celtic begitu kuat, sehingga MU nyaris tanpa memiliki ruang menembak langsung ke gawang di babak pertama.

Pada menit ke-13, MU tampak lengah. Sebuah serangan balik yang dilakukan Celtic begitu cepat, membuat MU kurang siap. Akhirnya, Scott McDonald membobol gawang MU yang dikawal kiper pengganti, Ben Foster.

Segala upaya MU untuk membalas ketinggalan selalu gagal. Termasuk di babak kedua, MU masih terus kesulitan membongkar pertahanan Celtic.

Cristiano Ronaldo selalu mendapat pengawalan ketat. Sedangkan Carlos Tevez kesulitan bergerak bebas seperti biasanya. Sehingga, serangan MU sering mudah dipatahkan. Bahkan, ketika MU memasukkan Wayne Rooney menggantikan Tevez di menit ke-71, keadaan masih belum berubah.

Namun, pada menit ke-84, Cristiano mencoba melakukan tendangan spekulasi dari jarak jauh. Bola keras itu gagal ditangkap kiper Celtic, Artur Borc. Bola mental dan Ryan Giggs segera merangsek maju untuk menyundulnya ke gawang, 1-1. (HPR)

Glasgow Celtic: 1-Artur Boruc, 4-Stephen McManus, 5-Gary Caldwell, 12-Mark Wilson, 2-Andreas Hinkel, 19-Barry Robson, 8-Scott Brown, 11-Paul Hartley, 13-Shaun Maloney (48-Darren O'Dea), 7-Scott McDonald (23-Ben Hutchinson 82), 26-Cillian Sheridan (18-Donati 63)

Manchester United: 12-Ben Foster, 15-Nemanja Vidic, 5-Rio Ferdinand, 22-John O'Shea, 21-Rafael (3-Patrice Evra 66), 16-Michael Carrick, 24-Darren Fletcher, 17-Nani (9-Berbatov 45), 7-Cristiano Ronaldo, 32-Carlos Tevez (10-Wayne Rooney 71), 11-Ryan Giggs

Carling Cup Fourth Round
Old Trafford, Tues 11 November

Tevez (pen) 75


United’s mixture of youth and experience reached the quarter-finals of the Carling Cup after overcoming a dogged Queens Park Rangers at a bitterly cold Old Trafford.

The Reds were much-changed after the weekend defeat by Arsenal but had enough to see off the Championship side in a scrappy game which only spluttered into life late in the second half.

Carlos Tevez broke the visitors' resistance from the penalty spot with 15 minutes left and United saw out the rest of the game without great alarm to reach the last eight for the first time since lifting the trophy three seasons ago.

As expected, Sir Alex Ferguson opted to rest several of his senior players and hand starts to youngsters Jonny Evans, Darron Gibson and Rodrigo Possebon – the latter for the first time since suffering a leg injury in the last round against Middlesbrough.

And the Brazilian midfielder almost got on the end of Anderson’s sixth-minute corner, only to see the ball nicked from the top of his head.  

Tevez started as the only out-and-out striker and was determined to impress, twice testing Radek Cerny from the edge of the box early on and then shaving the near post with a flick-on from John O’Shea’s cross.

Rangers, playing in a 4-5-1 formation, were largely effective in restricting United to long-range  strikes in the first period. Anderson stung Cerny’s palms from the edge of the box, while Saturday’s goalscorer Rafael tried his luck again but his left-foot shot sailed over.

That said, the visitors offered nothing going forward, with Tomasz Kuszczak given little to do other than endure the freezing Manchester night air.

United began the second half with greater intent and Nani sent a flashing drive past Cerny’s right-hand post.

Ji-sung Park then went even closer with a rising shot that smacked the post after Rafael had superbly outfoxed two Rangers defenders on the byline.

Tevez was denied again minutes later as Cerny tipped over his powerful drive from an acute angle, before the Rangers keeper parried another drive from Anderson, still seeking his first Reds goal.

Danny Welbeck, whose only previous first-team appearance this season came in the last round of this competition, replaced Possebon with 20 minutes to go and had an immediate impact as he won the decisive penalty.

The pacy young striker ran onto Nani’s pass on the left-hand side of the box, poked the ball past Peter Ramage and was upended by the former Newcastle defender, leaving referee Phil Dowd with little choice but to point to the spot. Tevez stepped up to send Cerny the wrong way and all but end any hopes Rangers had of forcing extra-time.

Gareth Ainsworth’s side were, however, forced to come out of their shell and Dexter Blackstock saw a shot blocked before substitute Samuel Di Carmine was flagged offside as he diverted the ball home.

Nani twice could have sealed it but Cerny was again on hand to deny him, before Emmanuel Ledesma curled QPR’s best chance of the game wide at the death.

No matter, United held on and are in the hat for the next round, just reward for another sound performance from Ferguson’s youngsters.
Manchester United: Kuszczak; Rafael, Evans, Neville (Vidic 90), O'Shea; Gibson, Anderson, Possebon (Welbeck 72); Nani, Park, Tevez.
Subs not used: Foster, Carrick, Manucho, Cleverley, Gray.

Queens Park Rangers: Cerny; Stewart, Connolly, Hall, Ramage Mahon; Parejo (Ledesma 46), Buzsaky (Agyemang 33), Rowlands, Cook (Di Carmine 78); Blackstock.
Subs not used: Delaney, Gorkss, Ephraim, Cole.

Attendance: 62,539.

"Setan Merah" Mengamuk, Bantai Stoke 5-0

MANCHESTER, SABTU - Manchester United (MU) mengamuk dan membantai Stoke City dengan skor 5-0, pada lanjutan kompetisi Premier League. Cristiano Ronaldo menjadi inspirator "Setan Merah" lewat dua gol tendangan bebasnya, sementara tiga gol lainnya disumbang Michael Carrick, Dimitar Berbatov dan Danny Welbeck.

Raihan tiga poin dari pertandingan di Old Trafford yang disaksikan langsung oleh lebih dari 75 ribu penonton itu membuat MU mengumpulkan total 24 poin dan naik ke peringkat tiga klasemen sementara. Tim besutan Sir Alex Ferguson itu menggser Arsenal yang saat bersamaan justru menuai kekalahan memalukan karena menyerah 0-2 saat menjamu Aston Villa.

Meskipun demikian, MU yang baru memainkan 12 pertandingan itu tertinggal cukup jauh dari Liverpool karena mereka berselisih delapan poin. Liverpool yang telah bermain 13 kali kokoh di puncak klasemen dengan 32 poin setelah menang 2-0 atas Bolton Wanderers.

MU yang pekan lalu kalah 1-2 dalam bigmatch melawan Arsenal langsung bermain agresif ketika wasit membunyikan peluit kick-off. The Red Devils hanya perlu waktu empat menit untuk mengoyak jala tim tamu yang dikawal Thomas Sorensen, lewat tendangan bebas Ronaldo.

Winger yang bakal menjadi pemain dengan gaji tertinggi di dunia--Ferguson berencana menggajinya Rp 2,9 miliar per pekan--itu melepaskan tendangan keras dari luar kotak penalti. Bak anak anak panah, bola melesat kencang ke pojok kanan atas dan menyobek jala Stoke.

Gol cepat itu membuat para pemain MU semakin bersemangat. Meskipun demikian, berbagai usaha mereka untuk menggandakan keunggulan tetap sulit terwujud karena barisan belakang Stoke bermain cukup disiplin untuk mematikan pergerakan Berbatov dan Carlos Tevez yang ditandemkan.

MU yang musim lalu menjadi juara Inggris dan Liga Champions itu baru bisa menggandakan keunggulan menjelang turun minum. Saat injury time, gelandang tersebut melakukan penetrasi ke dalam kotak penalti dan bola tendangan keras kaki kirinya kembali menghujam pojok kanan atas gawang tim tamu.

Pada babak kedua, kendali permainan tetap dipegang MU. Dan, mereka kembali menambah gol ketika pertandingan baru berlangsung empat menit, lewat tembakan Berbatov yang lebih dulu melakukan atraksi menarik saat mengontrol umpan silang Tevez dari sayap kanan.

Tuan rumah semakin membenamkan lawannya ketika Welbeck menambah gol pada menit ke-84 untuk membuat MU menang 4-0. Pemain yang masuk menggantikan Park Ji-Sung pada menit ke-63 itu melepaskan tembakan keras dari luar kotak penalti.

Lima menit berselang, Ronaldo melengkapi kemenangan "Setan Merah" menjadi 5-0. Gelandang dengan sebutan CR7 itu memanfaatkan tendangan bebas yang menjadi spesialisasinya, untuk kembali menaklukkan Sorensen, yang tak bisa menggapai si kulit bundar meskipun sudah bisa mengantisipasi arah bola tendangan Ronaldo yang menyusur tanah ke sisi kiri gawang.
