Former Manchester United player John O’Shea has hailed the performance of his former colleagues as they drew with Bayern Munich at Old Trafford tonight.

Seen as huge underdogs by most in light of their struggles this season, United side soaked up early Munich possession before taking a second half lead through Nemanja Vidic.

Bayern midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger equalised before getting his marching orders late on  but O’Shea says the Red Devils got the tactics spot-on.

“The game plan was fantastic,” he said on TV3 tonight where he was an analyst along with Brian Kerr.

“The wide players tucked in and Michael Carrick soaked up in front of the back four.”

David Moyes stood up and so did the players.”

He believes the team spirit, which has been questioned in light of some recent heavy defeats to their rivals, was the key behind the improvement in performance

“Because of the results against City and Liverpool there was little pressure on United."

“United unsettled Bayern,” he added.

“Neuer played some balls directly out of play during the game.”
