The 5 best MU players in the Burnley match: The end for Solskjaer’s pet

09 Th2 2022 | 08:26 | Football

 Although only won a draw against Burnley, but Manchester United still have bright spots on the field.

Jadon Sancho’s talent

Man Utd experienced a disappointing match when they only got 1 point against the bottom team in the Premier League, Burnley. In fact, the Red Devils lacked a bit of luck to get 3 points. They controlled the ball 64%, launched 22 shots and created 19 chances but only 1 goal.

The result may make Man Utd fans unhappy, but the following 5 players are the bright spot of the whole team.

Paul Pogba

 Pogba made his mark.

Despite the unresolved future and the possibility of leaving Old Trafford, Pogba still shows the inherent class. Since returning from injury, Pogba has really made a strong mark. Against Burnley, none other than Pogba scored.

Statistics from Statman Dave show that the French midfielder won 7 out of 10 duels, 7 recoveries and 3 successful fouls. Perhaps coach Ralf Rangnick also understands the quality and what Pogba can bring.

Luke Shaw

 Shaw had a good performance.

After less convincing performances, Shaw had a very good game against Burnley. Indeed, Shaw is one of the standout players on the pitch. He had 17 passes into the opponent’s third half, 6 crosses, 100% successful tackles, created 3 chances and contributed 1 assist.

Jadon Sancho

 Sancho has a bright competition day.

With Shaw in the background, Sancho can comfortably show off his personal technique. The former Dortmund star passes the ball with 91% accuracy, launching 29/32 accurate passes into the opponent’s third of the field (the highest on the field), 5 crosses, 3 dribbles and 3 shots. Sancho lacks 1 goal to have a perfect match day.

Scott McTominay

 McTominay is like a machine in the middle.

In the context of Fred’s absence, McTominay plays an important role in Man Utd’s play. This midfielder works tirelessly in the midfield. The proof is McTominay 100% successful dribbling, 9/14 won duels, 4/5 successful tackles, 3 rescues, 2 shots and 1 interception.

Diogo Dalot

 Dalot is increasingly effective.

Coach Rangnick was right when he always believed in the Portuguese defender. Dalot had a very productive day. He completed 12/14 passes into the third half of the pitch, 7 recoveries, 3 saves, 100% tackles and created 2 chances.

With what has been shown, Dalot is building a position on the right wing corridor. This is like putting an end to Aaron Wan-Bissaka at Old Trafford. With Dalot, Wan-Bissaka is no longer an “untouchable” player like under Old Gunnar Solskjaer.
