Brandon Williams is fouled for the penalty.

Williams voted Man of the Match in Belgrade

Thursday 24 October 2019 21:05

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer agreed with the supporters' view that Brandon Williams was our Man of the Match in the 1-0 Europa League win at Partizan Belgrade.

The attacking wing-back galloped into the home box to earn the first-half penalty that was tucked away by Anthony Martial to secure our first away win of the season.

It was the highlight of a composed showing by the young Mancunian in intimidating surroundings, as he defended bravely and won a series of challenges. He also rightly survived a handball shout at the far post towards the end as Partizan sought an equaliser.

Williams impressed manager, pundits and supporters alike with his performance at left wing-back.

"Brandon was Man of the Match," Ole told MUTV at the Partizan Stadium. "Absolutely excellent. Fantastic attitude.

"Great defending, great in the air. He gets us the penalty by driving with the ball forward. We've found a left-back there."

MUTV pundits Danny Webber and Sylvan Ebanks-Blake also nominated goalkeeper Sergio Romero and midfielder James Garner, who made his maiden senior start, alongside Williams.


Brandon Williams - 60%
Sergio Romero - 30%
James Garner - 10%
