What fans are posting about Mount's first game

Thursday 13 July 2023 14:00

Mason Mount only played for 45 minutes in Oslo, but his first appearance in the iconic Manchester United shirt was enough to excite supporters about his future as a Red.

Our summer signing from Chelsea started the friendly against Leeds and immediately caught the eye, showing flashes of his creativity and work-rate.

Early in the first half, Mount’s visionary pass out wide led to our first real chance of the game, when Amad and Hannibal both had attempts at goal.

Later, Mason’s aggressive pressing helped him to reclaim possession and hit a deft chip from distance that very nearly made it 1-0.

@nodafy: I know it's early days and only pre-season but Mason Mount bossed his debut game. Hopefully a sign of things to come.

@ryanvanpatten9823: Mason Mount’s chance creation and overall play were very impressive today. Looking forward to seeing him at Old Trafford this season.
@iamtahseen5025: Come back here when Mount will be scoring bangers and getting assists week in and week out. Mount is Red!

@Grishiska: Mason Mount is an unbelievable footballer. Superb!

@franky__a: What a beautiful first goal in Manchester United's shirt it would've been if Mount's chip went in. Can't wait to see his goals and assists in upcoming matches.

Erik ten Hag made 11 changes at the start of the second half and a noticeably younger squad went on to secure an excellent 2-0 win, thanks to goals by Noam Emeran and Joe Hugill. It was an accomplished display from the team of Academy starlets and fans are full of praise…

@amhafmas: Such a delight to see these lads get a run for the first team. I remember watching most of them in the FA Youth Cup. I hope more break into the first team.

@salsabila786: We need to give more minutes to Hannibal. Not only because he is getting better as a footballer, but he has that work ethic and determination to play for Man Utd.

@MartinP5184: Nobody is talking about how Hugill is scoring at each level for fun now... keep an eye on him!

@Simonmodisadife7208: I was very impressed by Kovar. Hope he smashes it at United.

@sreenirajan7229: Really excited for Mainoo and Aaroen. Mainoo makes the game so easy whereas Aaroen is a true baller!

@psychedelicmind5743: Emeran gives me Louis Saha vibes, with an attacking and clinical touch in his movements.

@mrmonkey2214: Isak Hansen-Aaroen was for me the most impressive of the second-half team. Great touches and passing. 

@veronicaoliveiro6367: What a fantastic game for the youngsters! So many to look forward to seeing more of - hope they get their chance to shine in the first team!
