We arrived in many dangerous positions. We scored two; we should have scored at least one more.“The second half was different. First of all, credit to Carlos because he improved the team at halftime. … I could feel the intensity went down. We let them have the ball, we didn’t press so high.”United is two points ahead of Liverpool.ADVERTISEMENT Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Man City beats Everton, can clinch EPL by taking down United Conor McGregor seeks to emerge from controversy in UFC comeback Scarlett Johansson, Sterling K.
