Who was your Man of the Match?

Wednesday 08 December 2021 23:09

It was a night for getting minutes in the legs and giving youngsters experience, as Manchester United drew 1-1 with Young Boys in our final Champions League Group F fixture.

With qualification to the Champions League round of 16 already secured, Ralf Rangnick rotated his entire starting XI for the visit of the Swiss side.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Luke Shaw and Jesse Lingard all returned after recent injuries, while Dean Henderson, Donny van de Beek and Juan Mata were granted rare starts and youngsters Amad and Anthony Elanga featured in attack, with Teden Mengi, Shola Shoretire, Tom Heaton, Charlie Savage and Zidane Iqbal all coming off the bench - the latter trio for their United debuts.

Eric Bailly and captain Nemanja Matic also played, forming an unfamiliar centre-back partnership but it was Mason Greenwood, playing from the off for the first time since early November, who scored a brilliant goal early on.

Shaw provided the assist, while Amad was lively going forward and Henderson looked alive and alert during his 68 minutes on the pitch, despite a stunning equaliser from Young Boys' Fabian Rieder.

Bailly and van de Beek put in solid performances and, as you can see above, they came second and third in the voting for our Man of the Match award.

But it was Greenwood who took the award, garnering a massive 58 per cent of the vote.

It's his first win since the second game of the Premier League season, the 1-1 draw at Southampton when he also found the net.

Thanks for voting and congratulations Mason!
