After 17 minutes was line up 2: 0 Jonathan de Guzmán, a late inclusion in Van Gaal after a Wesley Sneijder injury during the warm-up, collected a Robben pass and drove to the byline. Once he slid there a seemingly harmless cross into the area only for David Luiz from top blind, refrained a touch his attempted directly on Daley control, others set and then calmly found the roof of the net.
