Moving up the table to fifth position, Manchester United have secured the much needed three points from their clash with Burnley on Saturday.
Although the title hopes of the Mancunians were thwarted away by Liverpool’s unbelievable winning streak and their own initial struggles in the Premier League, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is now in the hopes of securing a Champions League qualification spot with the season having progressed into its second half.
Following the hyped triumph enjoyed by United fans after their successful clash with Newcastle, the supporters were looking forward to this away game at Turf Moor in order to see if their side would display consistency in the smoothness of their plays.
Nevertheless, providing relief to the Old Trafford faithful Anthony Martial registered a goal in the first half, followed by a seriously late strike from Marcus Rashford.
A distinguished figure proclaimed certain things which showed that he was a little too positive ahead of United’s 2-0 victory. Making an astonishing claim, the Red Devils’ legend Paul Scholes was talking about the present squad of the Mancunians in BT Sport studio.
The influential figure stated: “The front three excite me. I think the front three are as good as any team in the league or any team in Europe when you look at it.
“When Martial is running at you, when Rashford is running at you. Daniel James has been brilliant.”
Even though there exist multiple teams in Europe with their attacking line working more efficiently than United’s, what tempted the legend to make such claims is still not quite understandable, especially considering the fact that the English club’s front three, Martial, Rashford and James have only a collective registration of 20 league goals this campaign.
Regardless, being just a point behind fourth placed Chelsea, the Red Giants are recovering well from their initial struggles as they now look to end up in the top four position.
