Man United fans were left delighted with what they saw from Anthony Elanga vs Brentford.
Manchester United put in what was probably their most complete performance under Ralf Rangnick on Wednesday night. Sure, the first half wasn’t ideal but in the second, the Red Devils enjoyed total control.
Whatever was said by the gaffer at half-time certainly worked, with United coming out a completely different team. They actually played to their capabilities for once – and it was an absolute joy to watch.
I don’t think it’s a coincidence that United’s up-turn in performance levels directly coincides with Anthony Elanga getting starts. The young Swede was the catalyst against Aston Villa at the weekend.
After a top display against Steven Gerrard’s side, Elanga was entrusted with another start away at Brentford. Yet again, he’d look like the bright spark in our attack – due to his directness, pace and willingness to work.
Although he wasn’t seeing as much of the ball as he’d have probably liked, it was his insane movement and cool finish that gave United a lead early in the second half. From then on, the Old Trafford club were in complete control.
After the game, the gaffer would be the first to laud Elanga, with the supporters quickly following suit. Rightly so, too, as we could have another absolute gem on our hands if United manage him correctly.
As you’d imagine, the Man United fans would heap praise on the United starlet who was quality again vs Brentford last night. What a talent this young man is.
