Manchester United have showcased outstanding football yet again, scoring five goals without conceding any, in their latest Europa League clash with LASK FC.
The first leg of the Round of 16 was hosted at Linzer Stadion, although the much-awaited game was played behind closed doors owing to the coronavirus spread. The supporters struggled to have a peek at the action inside, as the Mancunians put to display one of their best offensive games this term.
The 5-0 scoreline witnessed goals from Odion Ighalo, Daniel James, Juan Mata, Mason Greenwood and Andreas Pereira. Surprisingly, two of the goals were netted after the 90-minute mark.
One of the key aspects in a crowd less fixture happened to be the way Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reacted to his side’s opener, netted by Odion Ighalo, scoring off an assist by the winter signing Bruno Fernandes.
As the visuals suggest, the Nigerian’s fourth goal for the Mancunians was the best of all. Smashing the ball with his weaker foot which went in off the bar made possible by a beautiful outside of the boot pass from his fellow 2020 signing, has seemingly caught the attention of the Norwegian manager.
The gaffer immediately offered a moment of applause, appearing amazed by the dazzling effort of the 30-year-old which presented the Red Devils with a lead prior to the half-hour mark.
And with that goal, the star has registered four goals up his name for the English side in three starts against Brugge, Derby County and LASK.
Arriving in the final stages of the winter transfer window this year on loan, the striker has exhibited some promising form in front of goal which might make the club manager look into the option to acquire the experienced attacker permanently at the end of the season.
