Manchester United Football Club did well to take a draw away from Stamford Bridge at the weekend. Under normal circumstances, we’d be celebrating much more than we are.
However, to lose the lead so late was a real dagger blow. The Red Devils came within seconds of scooping all three points, but obviously, that wasn’t meant to be thanks to Ross Barkley.
That hasn’t stopped the praise flooding in United’s direction, though, and rightly so. For their performances, two key players have been named in Garth Crooks’ BBC Team of the Week, and it was great to see them included.
First up, we have magical Juan Mata. The loveable Spaniard has been brilliant over the last two games, and it was great to see his good performance against Newcastle United rewarded. His vision, passing ability and on-ball skill just makes the team play far better. He simply has to continue being named in the starting line-up.
The second player? Of course, it’s Anthony Martial. His two goals put United in a commanding position. Unfortunately, they couldn’t take full advantage of that, but he was sensational.
We’re lucky to have these two guys, and they simply deserve to be playing week-in-week-out for the foreseeable future.
