As with most of Manchester United’s players last night, Antonio Valencia was probably more impressive without the ball than he was with it. He didn’t have many opportunities in possession, but he played a very important defensive role and it was noticeable how many times he came off his wing to contribute to United’s pressing tactics and how often he was responsible for making a clearance or taking the ball away from Bayern Munich.
A classic defensive winger’s performance.
