Blind, Schweinsteiger and more: Man United stars react to Villa win
Man United stars Daley Blind and Bastian Schweinsteiger take to Instagram after 1-0 win at Aston Villa
Daley Blind was particularly delighted with a clean sheet after Manchester United eased to a 1-0 victory over Aston Villa on Friday night.
The Netherlands international continued his fledgling centre-half partnership with Chris Smalling at Villa Park after the pair helped the Red Devils ease to an opening day victory over Tottenham Hotspur.
And the Blind-Smalling combination managed to prevent Villa from troubling United goalkeeper Sergio Romero, whilst 20-year-old Adnan Januzaj scored a first-half winner for Louis van Gaal’s side.
And the former Ajax midfielder took to Instagram to reflect on three important points for the Red Devils:
“Very happy with the 3 points and the clean sheet! The fans were amazing again! Thanks for your support!! #MUFC 🔴”
Meanwhile, United’s £25m summer signing Memphis Depay heaped praise on the travelling supporters after the winger missed a great chance in the second half to secure three points:
“3 points again! The #mufc supporters did a great job to !”
Bastian Schweinsteiger, who completed a £15m move to United from Bayern Munich last month, was in a determined mood on the photo-sharing app:
“Second game, second victory. Come on, Red Devils! #mufc”#
Goal-scorer Januzaj, who started his first game since February, was particularly pleased with his 29th-minute winner:
“Good win and happy to score! #mufc”
Finally, birthday boy Ander Herrera is happy with his present on Friday night:
“Nothing better than a win to finish my birthday off. Well done team!”
