Man United fans were delighted, as Raphael Varane put in another colossal display, this time vs West Ham.
Well, we made hard work of it, but Manchester United grabbed another massive three points and keep pace with Liverpool atop the Premier League table.
The overall display was a pretty positive one, with Cristiano Ronaldo a constant threat for the Red Devils. Defensively, United could have done better as a unit, that’s for sure.
However, Raphael Varane continued to impress. Now I know what you’re thinking, it was his deflection that led to the West Ham opener but the Frenchman couldn’t do anything about that at all.
Putting that to one side, I’d argue Varane was the best player on the pitch. His presence, calmness and experience always shines through. This is someone who can just cruise through games due to his quality.
Yesterday was more of the same. He’d make key interceptions, win several headers, put his body on the line for the cause and pass out from the back smoothly.
Although the Ronaldo signing was a massive one, I’d argue Varane’s addition was the most important. He makes this United team look far more solid, though the partnership between Varane and Harry Maguire definitely still needs some work.
What I love most about Varane is that he’s loving every single second of playing for this club. He represents that badge on his chest with pride and you have to admire that. We’re very lucky to have him.
As you’d expect, the United fans would react to the top-class performance from the star who ‘makes things look easy’. He is an absolute Rolls Royce of a player!
