Manchester United fans react to Real Sociedad thrashing
Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s men secured a comfortable 4-0 win in the first leg of the round of
32 tie at the Allianz Stadium.
Bruno Fernandes once again starred by bagging a brace. The red devils will continue
to alternate between playing Mason Greenwood on the right
and upfront after he started as the center-forward against Real Sociedad in the Europa
League. Greenwood, 19, played through the middle with Marcus Rashford on the
left and Daniel James on the right and, ironically,
the two wingers scored and Greenwood came off without a goal in the 4-0 thrashing.
The Portuguese took advantage of a collision between goalkeeper Alex Remiro and
defender Robin Le Normand and scored into an open net in the 27th minute.
Before the hour mark, he doubled the club’s advantage after beating the offside trap
before curling his shot past the shot-stopper.
Marcus Rashford made it 3-0 for United shortly after following a sublime through ball
from Fred before Daniel James scored the fourth with a wonderful solo run in the 90th
The victory has put United in a commanding position to reach the round of 16, given
Sociedad needs to score four goals without reply at Old Trafford to stay in the tie.
Fernandes has been in exceptional form this term and he has now registered 21 goals and
11 assists from just 36 games in all competitions.
He has made 52 goal contributions since he arrived from Sporting in January last year
and that is only one less than Barcelona’s Lionel Messi.
Several United fans were delighted with another standout display from the 26-year-
old and here are some of the reactions on Twitter.
