Andy Cole: Why Man United can take positives from PSV defeat
Former Man United striker Andy Cole says there are positives for the Red Devils to take
Andy Cole believes Manchester United can take positives from their 2-1 defeat by PSV Eindhoven on Tuesday night.
The Red Devils endured a forgettable night after Luke Shaw suffered a broken leg before PSV cancelled out Memphis Depay’s opener to secure a win in their Champions League group-stage opener.
The 20-time English champions have failed to win three of their last four games in all competitions.
However, Cole believes new signing Anthony Martial could flourish behind Wayne Rooney on the evidence of his performances against Liverpool and PSV.
Agree with Scholesy on there being promising signs for @ManUtd last night.. Bring Rooney in behind Martial and let them form partnership!
