Ryan Taylor match clinching moment v Man City – Watch here

6 years ago

When I saw Ryan Taylor’s name on the team sheet, I have to admit that I thought he would be lucky to see anything beyond the half-time.

After over two years out of competitive football, the utility man has had a few friendly/reserve matches but playing against the current Champions in his first competitive match back…?

Not only did Ryan Taylor last the full ninety minutes plus six of injury time, he was one of the stars of the show.

The whole night, for both Ryan Taylor and the team, summed up by this incident you can watch below, with only four minutes of normal time left.

United are two up and the ball goes across the six yard back and ends up at the feet of Dzeko who just has to put it into the all but unguarded net.

The City striker strikes the ball home but Ryan Taylor throws his body at the ball and deflects it away.

It may have been 2-0 at the time but with ten minutes including injury time left, if that had gone in then many of would have feared the worst.

Ryan Taylor- what a comeback!
