Old Trafford’s home team is showing very impressive performance. This is due to the rapid integration of new contracts in MU and the progress of many players who used to get themselves lost in the Premier League.
1/ Harry Maguire:
After the start of the impressive playing season, Harry Maguire was immediately handed the captain’s armband by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. In the last 10 unbeaten matches of MU, the defense under the direction of Maguire only conceded 2 goals, one of which was a mistake on the right foot of goalkeeper David de Gea. Maguire is MU’s new contract last summer and he is proving himself worth every penny.
2. Arron Wan-Bissaka:
Contributing to the impressive defensive achievements of MU also Arron Wan-Bissaka, the English player with accurate tackles and the fiery play turned the right-wing of MU into the place where the attacking players were afraid of. In the match against Man City, Wan-Bissaka tackled the ball exactly 8 times, higher than the MU defense combined. Former defender Jamie Carragher admits Wan-Bissaka is now one of the best one-on-one defenders in the world.
3. Bruno Fernandes:
Fernandes’ Premier League Player of the Month award is enough to speak about the influence of this player, although he has just joined United. Having just played 5 matches in the Premier League, the Portuguese player has 2 goals and 3 assists. More than the numbers, Fernandes with a different mindset helps MU attack more brightly when meeting deep defensive opponents, playing snakes.
Fred: Just last season, Fred was a disappointment at Old Trafford. However, at this time, the Brazilian midfielder became an irreplaceable name at Old Trafford. He played 25 out of MU’s 29 matches in the Premier League this season despite always running a lot each game. Fred and Nemanja Matic help shield MU’s defense when defending and he does a good job of pulling the ball up when the Old Trafford team needs to attack.
5. Nemanja Matic
Nemanja Matic: At the beginning of the season, Matic lost their position to Scott McTominay. He was even put on the MU sale list in the winter transfer period, but now MU has been extended the contract for another year because of his impressive performance. Taking advantage of the time McTominay was injured, Matic returned to the anchor position where the MU midfield and played very stable. In the recent 10 unbeaten series of MU, Matic contributed greatly to the achievement of conceding only 2 goals with the ability to shield the defense. In MU’s 1-0 win against Man City in the League Cup, coach Pep Guardiola even praised Matic as the best player of the match.
6. Luke Shaw
Luke Shaw: The ups and downs, the good matches or the bad ones are the weaknesses of Luka Shaw in recent seasons. However, he is playing very well in the last period, since there was a competitor named Brandon Williams. Dragged by coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to the left-back center, Luke Shaw has always completed his duties and contributed greatly to the team’s clean sheet record over the past time.
7. Anthony Martial
Anthony Martial: Martial’s form seemed to be affected when his partner Marcus Rashford was injured, but suddenly went up with the help of rookie Bruno Fernandes. In the last 10 matches, Martial scored 5 goals, with 1 assist for the team. In the aforementioned goals, there are situations where high-level handling such as goals from a live shot against Man City or the flick of the ball fool Watford and defender Watford.
8. Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: The capacity of the Norwegian military is still in doubt, but his contribution to MU over the past time is undeniable in this year’s Premier League. Solskjaer has made a series of precise decisions such as buying players or trusting the names being criticized (Shaw, Matic, Fred). MU under Solskjaer did not always play well, but under his direction, the team defeated Pep’s Man City 3 times, Lampard’s Chelsea twice and beat Mourinho’s Tottenham. That shows that Solskjaer is not a mediocre coach.
