Schweinsteiger didn’t have his best game in a Man United shirt at Old Trafford but he kept fighting throughout.
United were sound defensively but struggled to make things happen from an offensive point of view. Things improved in the second half but a draw was probably a fair result.
Schweinsteiger revealed his disappointment following the clash:
We wanted this victory so bad! Unfortunately, we couldn't reward ourselves after a great second half. #mufc

Sunday’s game, although fascinating from a tactical standpoint, was something of an anti-climax following a lot of prematch hype.
Perhaps United’s trip to CSKA Moscow this week had something to do with their performance, which was laboured in parts. The squad will have to dust themselves down ahead of the Capital One Cup clash against Middlesbrough next week.
