We scored that goal and then we did everything all together.
United finally worked a clear opening in the 38th minute, a powerful drive from Marouane Fellaini beaten away by Sergio Rico after Alexis Sanchez turned a one-two into the path of the Belgium global, who was making his first start of 2018.
