Manucho earned rave reviews after his performance in Manchester United's 3-0 reserve-team victory over derby rivals Manchester City last night.

The Angola striker twice burst through on goal, leaving the City defence trailing in his wake, but both times was denied a goal by superb one-handed stops from Kasper Schmeichel.

Manucho was unfortunate not to find the net after an impressive display, having toiled away gamefully all evening as a lone striker.
