Conceding the first goal after a period of potent dominance seemed ironic, but De Gea as a keeper seems to be caught napping more often now that United has started ticking well.
But the performance of the team in front of the keeper showed no doubt of anything short of a victory. Greenwood indeed is the standout player. He single handedly took the match away from Bournemouth. Both times when they were up with momentum, he sprung up with beautiful strikes from either foot to reign the control back.
His assurance on the ball in the 6 yard box, is something Rashford and to a lesser extent Martial can’t compare themselves to. This boy just knows how to score. He knows the goal like the back of his hand. There is literally no pressure on Pogba to deliver. Set piece specialists aplenty.
There is plenty of reasons to smile at the end of this game today. GGMU.
