Manchester United are the comeback kings of the Premier League, and it’s a habit that has been with the club right from the time of Sir Alex Ferguson.
Against Manchester United, it’s never over until the final whistle, and Aston Villa saw a taste of it at the Villa Park on Sunday.
United came from a goal down to win the game 3-1, and it’s the 10th time this season that United have managed to salvage a result after coming from behind.
Mason Greenwood, who scored the second goal for Manchester United has now admitted that the team has a ‘bad habit’ of starting slowly. Although he insisted that the players know they can come back against any team.
“We’ve got a little bit of a bad habit,” he told MUTV. “‘It’s not so bad if we come and get the three points; it’s just a wake up call when they score.
“We know we can come back second half and get the three points. We need to work on it and not give little goals away in the first half so we don’t have to come back from behind.
“We were always confident that we’d get the three points. That first goal was good play from Paul to get the penalty. We always knew Bruno would put it in the back of the net.
“It was a confidence booster. From there, we looked comfortable and got the three points.”
