Remember when this match was properly end to end rather than 'a parade of Manchester United chances'? Me neither. Javier Hernandez comes close yet again, bursting into the area and beating Manuel Neuer from an acute angle only to see his vicious shot flash agonisingly wide of the far post, and then Ryan Giggs was denied by a sublime save from the German goalkeeper, planting a firm header from a rebound only to be denied by Neuer's right hand. Very close calls, as far as Schalke are concerned.
For the past ten minutes or so, the hosts have been firmly on the back foot, and they're going to have to work much harder in the midfield to rectify that. Presumably that was the idea behind the temporary switch in formation, but that didn't work either - Park Ji-Sung and Wayne Rooney are both drifting into the middle of the pitch to support Giggs and Michael Carrick, and it's extremely difficult for Schalke's two (or three) central midfielders to compete.
