Moussa Sow scores incredible overhead kick vs Manchester United

Football News

In the recent 4-1 defeat to Chelsea, Manchester United conceded after just 30 seconds.

Against Fenerbahce this evening, it took ninety seconds for David de Gea to concede.

Even Manchester United’s official Twitter account admitted Moussa Sow’s goal was “sensational”.

The Fenerbahce striker scored a brilliant overhead kick to give the Turkish club a 1-0 lead.

It’s safe to say he’ll never score a better goal this season.

In the second minute, Hasan Ali Kaldirim sent in a cross from the left that was behind Sow. He contorted his body to rifle the ball beyond De Gea from about 16 yards out.

Sheer brilliance

Mourinho’s teams used to be so resolute. Not any more.

To be fair, this was a case of sheer brilliance rather than any defensive mistakes.

Check out the goal below.

Twitter reacts

Twitter, inevitably, went berserk.

Rooney return

Wayne Rooney returned to the starting line-up after his recent demotion, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic was dropped to the bench.

It remains to be seen whether Rooney’s return will spark a revival in a United attack that managed 37 shots against Burnley on Saturday, none of which went in.

However, it’s clear that United have more problems than just their attacking options. Mourinho fielded a centre-back pairing of Marcos Rojo and Daley Blind - hardly the most inspiring of choices.
