The Manchester Red Devils have an important victory over Leeds United to continue their hopes of winning tickets to the Champions League.
A training session of Man Utd
On Elland Road, Man Utd faced many difficulties. The moment the Red Devils conceded 2 goals within 2 minutes, the home fans thought about a not very positive result. However, teacher and coach Ralf Rangnick still won the final victory.
Here are the 3 best players on the Man Utd side this match.
Sancho has regained the best ball feeling.
United legend Gary Neville said Sancho was the best name when Man Utd won 4-2. Sancho has 2 ants for Bruno Fernandes and and Fred. In particular, the pass to Fred was important to reestablish the lead for the Red Devils.
The England international is in the best form of his career at Old Trafford. The former Dortmund star has shown impressive composure when continuously making the most of the space left by the Leeds United defense. Obviously, coach Rangnick has a reason to trust Sancho completely.
Fernandes has always been an important player for Man Utd.
Fernandes was once again at the center of every uphill move. In the first leg, Fernandes himself also had a hat-trick. This is the first time a Man Utd player has scored four goals against Leeds United in the Premier League in the same season.
Against Leeds United, Fernandes 100% shot the ball with accuracy, 6 times won the duels, 4 times recovered the ball, created 2 chances, scored 1 goal and had 1 assist. Up to this point, Fernandes has imprinted his shoes on 60 Premier League goals (35 goals, 25 assists) after only 76 matches.
It seems that the Portuguese midfielder is slowly returning to his best form. This is a good thing for Man Utd, especially as they prepare to enter an important match in the Champions League against Atletico Madrid.
Pogba has had good performances in recent times.
In the first half, Pogba can be considered Man Utd’s best player. He completely dominated the midfield and easily dominated the one-on-one battle with Leeds United’s Adam Forshaw.
The French midfielder created a delicious opportunity for Cristiano Ronaldo when the score was 0-0 and the Portuguese superstar should have scored. Recently, Pogba really exploded.
It was a bit of a surprise when coach Rangnick took Pogba out and replaced it with Fred. According to Rangnick, Pogba feels tired because he has not fully reached his best since returning from injury.
