The German midfielder signs for The Reds' on a £10M deal
Bayer Leverkusen live updates
GOOOOAAAA… oh. Oh. This is awkward.
Replays suggest the opening goal should not have stood, as Antonio Valencia was offside and also obstructing Bayer's keeper Bernd Leno on the line. A lucky break for Moyes and co.?
We have lift off at Old Trafford. And yes, Wayne Rooney is still wearing his very comfy-looking protective headband. Man Utd in red/white, of course, Bayer in all black.
– Lee Dixon gives his expert analysis on the visitors tonight.
I think United have got enough to win the game but Leverkusen are a decent side, and they've had a good start in the Bundesliga. They finished just a point behind Dortmund last season, so they're a good side – they'll come here with confidence.
Stefan Kiessling scores all their goals, he's the one that stands out. Bayer play a rigid 4-3-3, so there might be a few holes in midfield for United to exploit, depending on where Shinji Kagawa and Wayne Rooney play. They are a team who like to counter attack and get players wide, so we should be in for a good game.
Let's hope Man United v Leverkusen is just as exciting as the match played by the two side's youngsters today.
