Manchester United Player Emerged “MVP” of the Match After First Win of the Season
The saying home is where the heart is, was a live experience at Old Trafford today as Manchester United made a fresh start to the Premier League season with their first win after a series of defeats.
Aimed at their first win of the season after a slow start to the season which saw Brighton & Hove Albion walk away with the maximum points and afterwards a heavy humiliation at the Brentford Community Stadium, such memories were left behind as they buckled up against their biggest rivals at home in a 2-1 victory.
Although dominated less in Possession (30% against 70%), Manchester United capitalised on their few set opportunities. Jadon Sancho who made his third start placed the “Red Devils” on the momentum with a lovely turn finish inside Liverpool’s box through the assistance of teenage sensational Anthony Elanga before halftime.
Marcus Rashford then doubled up with a giant counterattack strike off Anthony Martial crucial pass following a possession recovery in the 53rd minute and Mohamed Salah with the consolation goal for the visitors as they continue to search for answers to their slow start this season.
And as it stands after the match, Manchester United are no longer threatened by relegation – quick settle in the 14th position.
Also, a tradition in football, where the most outstanding player is honoured with the Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the match – Manchester United star Jadon Sancho emerged based on his ratings according to sofascore at 7.6 more than any other player.
