Blackburn 0 - Manchester United 0

Manchester United shared points in the match against Blackburn and failed to go top in English Premier League. Blackburn’s cautious and calculated approach was sufficient for them to share points with Manchester United.

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson preferred experienced player and started with Giggs and Scholes in central midfield with Nani and Valencia on wings. As expected Rooney missed the game because of his injury and Macheda joined Berbatov upfront.

O'shea returned to take part in a premier league game after a long time.

Blackburn were cautious in the first half and Valencia had two good chances of which one was one on one with Robinson. Overall Manchester United never looked threatening in the first half. Samba got injured and Blackburn boss Sam Allardyce was forced to make first change in 33rd minute.

In the second half Blackburm were more attacking than before but Van Der Sar did enough to maintain a clean sheet. Ferdinand got injured and there is no news about the seriousness of his injury.

In the end moments Garry Neville blocked a shot from Steven Nzonzi and finally the game ended as a draw.
