After Bruno Fernandes’ spectacular goal against Burnley gave Erik ten Hag’s team all three points, Manchester United is back on the winning track.
The 4-3 loss to Bayern Munich marked the first time since 1978 that United had conceded three goals or more in three straight games when they arrived at Turf Moor. United had lost each of their previous three games.
Throughout the entire 90 minutes, Vincent Kompany’s team gave United some trouble, but it was a moment of brilliance when Fernandes slammed home a spectacular volley after Jonny Evans had found his skipper with a wonderful pass over the defense of the opposition.
An excellent performance by United that night was further enhanced by Andre Onana’s clean sheet. They now have nine points after six games in the Premier League.
Their focus will now shift to Tuesday’s Carabao Cup match against Crystal Palace at Old Trafford. With Mason Mount and Lisandro Martinez not traveling yesterday and Sergio Reguilon being taken off in the second half due to illness in the days leading up to the game, Ten Hag will want to welcome back some of his injured stars next week.
