Who was our Man of the Match against Athletic Club?

Alvaro Fernandez was impressive at left-back and had quite the job in keeping Williams quiet before his withdrawal at half-time. The former Preston loanee has stepped up to the plate when called upon in pre-season and navigated his forward responsibilities well too.

Jadon Sancho’s trickery and clever link-up play with Donny van de Beek in the first half caused Athletic Club problems early on, with the United no.25 unlucky not to open the scoring after just three minutes, after Unai Simon made a smart stop with his feet.

Dan Gore was partnered with Christian Eriksen in the heart of our midfield and also put on a strong showing, anchoring between both the defence and attack impressively, while occupying some tidy space to help keep the Reds moving swiftly.
