David de Gea is still very much one of the best goalkeeper in the Premier League, although his goal keeping stat in recent matches are not as impressive for the tag as one of the best in the Premier League, but his individual brilliance has always kept Manchester United from receiving heavier goal trashing in matches they are underperforming.

Mason Greenwood has established himself as one of the go-to man for goals outside the box for Manchester United, having only David Beckham and Nani as the only one with more outside the box goal.

Mason Greenwood broke the deadlock in the 19th minute with an absolute cracker of a goal. The goal for Manchester United on Saturday was the 21st in 72 appearances for Manchester United.

Marcus Rashford is back, and he can score goals for united. Marcus Rashford scored the second goal for Manchester United after goal 2-1 down in the match. It is apparent that Marcus Rashford has something to offer for United up front.
