Defending Champions Manchester United loses both Rooney and Ronaldo for their rivals clash

Defending Champions lost their star striker Wayne Rooney on their starting match of the premier league against Reading due to a accidental injury. The match too ended in a goalless draw. After the match Fergusun confirmed that Wayne Rooney has suffered a fracture and will be out of action for atleast 2 months. A big blow for the Red Devils who already have both their strikers Saha and Solskjer injured. With Smith and Rossi sold out Manchester United had to depend on Carloz Tevez and Ronaldo.

As expected both Tevez and Nani started the match against the Pompeys, which too ended in a 1-1 draw. Adding salt to injury Christiano Ronaldo was sent off during the closing minutes of the match. This means that the defending Champions will be without Rooney and Ronaldo for their clash agaisnt their arch rivals Manchester City on Sunday.

The bad start by the champions is a clear sign of defeat. From now it's going to be really hard for them to battle for the title. With just 2 points out of 2 matches Man utd is far away from their counterparts Chelsea who has 6 points out of 2 matches.
