Manchester United returned to winning ways in the Premier League with a 3-1 victory at home to Northern rivals Burnley last night. With a few goals expected from the strikers against a team fighting relegation, there was an unlikely hero – a player who didn’t even start they game.
With Chris Smalling’s first touch he had the ball in the back of the net with a looping header. From that point onwards he barely put a foot wrong throughout the first half, before adding another brilliantly headed goal on the stroke of half time.
Marcos Rojo was also named in WhoScored’s Team of the Week, with a 7.81 rating out of 10. The Argentine has been an instant hit at the club, rapidly becoming a fan favourite.
Do these two deserve their place in this team? Leave your thoughts in the comment box below.
