Manchester United have a tough game at the weekend against the second-placed Chelsea. The Blues are unbeaten in all competitions and playing great football under Maurizio Sarri. United, for their part, are down at eighth spot and haven’t played well this season.
Some of the players decided to release the pressure by playing a game of FIFA 19. Sergio Romero took on Fred and Juan Mata in the ‘Survival Mode’, and the Argentine was on the losing end of the game.

There were a couple of fun moments as Fred and Mata enjoyed the celebrations whenever they scored. The Spaniard had to explain the rules of the mode to the Brazilian. There was an instance which even saw the former getting removed from the game as Romero scored using Chris Smalling.
The game seemed to be fun, but some fans had a go on Twitter as the players haven’t performed well enough this season on the pitch.
So, Romero actually had to play himself in the game instead of de Gea??

In reality whenever Manchester United score a goal we sit back and lose our attacking players
