Dreadful Manchester United defence spoil English Champions League Clean Sweep

Manchester United ruins an English clean sweep in champions league group stage. City, Chelsea, and Liverpool stay dominant.

English clubs started round 3 of the Champions League group stage on Wednesday morning unbeaten. Liverpool made it three wins from 3 matches with a 5-0 win away at Atalanta on the back of a rapid start to the second half.

Manchester City won 3-0 at home to Olympiacos, they were made to work hard for it, and two late second-half goals ensured win number 3. It was looking like a clean sheet sweep for the English clubs.

That was before Manchester United faced Istanbul Buyuksehir in Turkey. Having seen off Paris St Germain and then RB Leipzig in their first 2 group H matches, it was expected to be a simple case of getting the three points – that was before some dreadful defence lapses changed the story.

Chelsea did continue the pattern with a straightforward win over a ten-man Rennes side 3-0, aided by the dismissal of Estevao late in the first half – holding onto their unbeaten start to the 2020/2021 campaign.

At the halfway stage of the group matches, all four English clubs are sitting at the top of their respective groups and look well-set to progress to the next stage.
