PHOTOS: Forget the Phil Jones face... Here's the many faces of Moyes!

Manchester United and David Moyes, all things considered, had a terrific night at Old Trafford against Bayern Munich, however, his expressions in the first-half told a completely different story.

It all started off with a handshake and a selfie, however, at that moment in time, David Moyes must have been dreading what a heavy defeat would do to his already crumbling reputation at Old Trafford.

In the first-half, the pressure was clearly hitting home as he watched his Manchester United side passed to death by Bayern Munich, a tell-tale sign of a Pep Guardiola side.

Bayern Munich, much in the same vein as Barcelona under Guardiola, are a very possession focused side and when they're in control of the ball they're very relaxed and patient with their play. However, much to the annoyance of their supporters, on this occasion their relaxed and patient attitude was quickly undone by Manchester United, who took the lead through a very classy Nemanja Vidic header.

When Manchester United found themselves in front, it wasn't Moyes animated on the touchline, it was Guardiola. In fact, in what seemed to be a role reversal between the two, David Moyes stood with his arms folded whilst the Bayern manager had his turn shouting demands.

Bastian Schweinsteiger netted an equaliser 8-minutes later, however, in the grand scheme of things, it was a good night for Manchester United, who despite an injury hit squad squad showed themselves to be no pushovers.

Nemanja Vidic, Alexander Buttner and Phil Jones were selected by MUTV pundits Ron Atkinson and Danny Higginbotham as the three choices for Man of the Match, with the goalscorer, Vidic, winning with more than half the votes.

It gives Manchester United a glimmer of hope of reaching the semi-finals when they travel to Germany for the second-leg. However, after the resilience shown by United in this game, I doubt Bayern will be looking forward to round-two.
