Who was Man of the Match against Spurs?

Saturday 30 October 2021 20:31

Manchester United delivered a defiant performance at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday to take three crucial Premier League points. But which Red was the standout performer?

That was the question we asked fans on our Official App after the impressive 3-0 win, which was secured via goals from Cristiano Ronaldo, Edinson Cavani and Marcus Rashford.
Ronaldo broke the deadlock just before half-time in north London, before clinical second-half finishes from Cavani and Rashford added a fully deserved gloss to the scoreline.
The Reds were also solid in defence. Buoyed by the return of Raphael Varane, and a new three-man central set-up devised by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his coaches, David De Gea did not have a single save to make across the 90 minutes.

Who gets your vote for Man of the Match against Spurs?

The unity and cohesion of the team's performance meant there were plenty of candidates for our Man of the Match prize.
But, unsurprisingly, it was the five-time Ballon d'Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo who scooped the award, after garnering a chunky 60 per cent of the vote.
Not content with snaffling his seventh goal in 10 games, the Portuguese then turned provider by supplying an assist for Edinson Cavani's strike, before leaving the field to be replaced by Marcus Rashford in the 71st minute.
There was a big fight for second place in our poll, though, with four Reds in close contention.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Cavani finished joint-second, with eight per cent of the vote, while Bruno Fernandes (seven per cent) and Raphael Varane (six per cent) followed close behind.
There was also clear admiration for Scott McTominay's boisterous showing in central midfield, with the Scotland international impressing four per cent of our voting audience.
It's Ronaldo's third Man of the Match award of the season, following his excellent displays against Newcastle and Atalanta.
