With some unanticipated lapses in the initial stages of this season, Manchester United had lost hopes of the Premier League title early on. The club is thus now on a race to grab a top four position, with fourth placed Chelsea being five points ahead of them.

Accordingly, it would be most fruitful for the manager to focus on the FA Cup fixtures, eyeing the Cup triumph this season. And the Mancunian side have now advanced to the 4th round, having secured a win against Wolves on Wednesday night.

The match showcased some key moments, which undoubtedly include Juan Mata’s impressive goal. The talented midfielder sure was on the receiving end of quite a lot of praises and attention following the victory.

Regardless, Gary Neville has pinned down Brandon Williams as the player who impressed him last night. The left back was phenomenal in the defence line, as he was handed his 12th start of the season with plenty of faith from the club manager.

The influential figure shared on Twitter:

Another popular figure to have praised the fullback happens to be Rio Ferdinand, as he pointed out the goals conceded record in last seven games Williams appeared.

Moreover, with the likes of Luke Shaw underperforming this season, the 19-year-old sure received a lot of game time handling the left flank. Fortunate for the teenager, he has been performing well and adjusting to the system decently which makes him easier to be favoured by the manager.

Although the current season might not have been what the supporters expected to see, it’s undoubtedly a great time to witness such teenagers enjoying explosive emergence in the game of football.
