Man U fail to fire


Wayne Rooney (left) has not scored for Manchester United in 10 games

Manchester United’s need for attacking reinforcements was laid bare at Old Trafford as they stuttered to a 0-0 draw against Newcastle.

The home side dominated the opening 20 minutes, but failed to score on a frustrating afternoon for Louis van Gaal’s team.

After a week in which they failed to land former target Pedro, United lacked a cutting edge up front.

Wayne Rooney’s goal drought now stretches to 10 games. The captain thought he had put United ahead early on but his effort was ruled out for a marginal offside call.

The England captain had a shot blocked inside the area after the break, but otherwise failed to show he is the answer to United’s scoring troubles.

It was not just Rooney who struggled in front of goal, however. Juan Mata and Memphis Depay also missed chances while Tim Krul performed some late heroics to deny substitute Javier Hernandez.

The result ended United’s perfect start to the season and provided yet more evidence that Van Gaal needs to add more attacking players to his squad before the transfer window shuts in 10 days’ time.
