Who was Man of the Match v Atletico?

Wednesday 23 February 2022 23:21

Sixteen different players were involved as Manchester United fought back to secure an impressive 1-1 away draw against Atletico Madrid.

Ralf Rangnick again made great use of the substitutes at his disposal, sending on the maximum five allowed in the Champions League. And it was the fourth player he introduced from the bench - Anthony Elanga - who ultimately scored a deserved equaliser for the reshaped Reds.

The man who created the opportunity, Bruno Fernandes, was also a strong candidate for our Man of the Match award but in the end it was the scorer who scooped the largest share of votes in the United App's full-time poll.

Elanga was the winner with a whopping 58 per cent, with Fernandes gleaning 14 per cent to finish as runner-up.

Victor Lindelof, who was deployed in an unfamiliar role of right-back, completed the top three performers, after being selected by seven per cent of the voters.

Cristiano Ronaldo was the fourth most popular pick on five per cent.
