The glamor of the Sir Alex Ferguson era has begun to return to Old Trafford. Finally, it seems that “Manchester United” found a coach in the person of Erik Ten Haag, with whom the team can dominate against the strong. The victory over “Arsenal” with 3:1 is the fourth in a row for the “Devils”, as there is also a 2:1 over “Liverpool” in the series. Only two teams in the history of the Premier League have won 4 times in a row after losing the first two rounds of the new season – “Tottenham” (2011) and “Arsenal” (2018).
Antony broke into the history of English football. The winger is the 100th Brazilian in the Premier League. Became the youngest from the Coffee Country (22 years and 192 days) to score in his debut. Antony played samba football and had even Cristiano Ronaldo on his feet to applaud him from the bench. The Portuguese later replaced his successor with a brotherly hug. Perhaps Antoni will really “step into the shoes” of Cristiano from his strongest years.
Christian Eriksen barely survived Euro 2020 after suffering a cardiac arrest and is now the engine of United’s game. The reborn Marcus Rashford (2 goals) is finally ready to be the “nine”, notes “Trud”. And the defensive pair Lisandro Martinez – Raphael Varane gives security. At Ten Haag, the club’s teenager Scott McTominy also plays at the highest level, throwing down a gauntlet to megastar Casemiro for the starting place.
The dark clouds that descended on Old Trafford after Sir Alex’s retirement have hung for a decade. Erik Ten Hag is the man who is about to succeed in a mission where even Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho have failed.
