The team coached by Erik ten Hag advanced to the fourth round of the FA Cup on Monday. As a result of goals scored by Diogo Dalot and Bruno Fernandes, they were able to secure a pretty routine victory over Wigan, who were playing in League One.
The award for Player of the Match would finally be given to Dalot, who opened the goal for United with a curling attempt from outside the box.
efforts would ultimately lead to him being awarded the accolade.
However, many people were of the opinion that the young player Kobbie Mainoo deserved the reward because of his dominant performance in the middle of the field.
This season, Mainoo has had a breakout campaign at Old Trafford. During the match against Wigan, he won all eight of his tackles and completed ten out of thirteen ground duels. This is more than any other player on the pitch.
In addition, his reading of the game was unparalleled in its quality. One such instance from the first half, in which Mainoo managed to keep possession of the ball despite Scott McTominay’s attempt to smash him in the face, has gone viral.There is a clip that may be seen below:
Here are some of the responses that fans on social media had to the situation.”Many people have used this to criticize McTominay,” stated one of them.
The mainoo is a class. Generally speaking, Scott is unable to perform what he does. On the other hand, just after that, there is a graceful turn under pressure from Scott, and a run that ends up culminating in the first goal. Diverse strengths and virtues”
“This young man is going to be exceptional,” wrote a second person. While one person said, “Mainoo is going straight to the top,” another person said, “We actually have our very own N’Golo Kante right here.”
Mainoo’s recent performances have left many people, including fellow midfielder Christian Eriksen, who has praised the “exceptional” midfielder. Mainoo’s most recent performances have impressed many people.When asked by MUTV, Eriksen stated, “I’m very impressed.” Fortunately, I have witnessed him in training, and I have also witnessed him from a close proximity. What I observe is quite appealing to me. As far as I can tell, he is an outstanding player.
Despite the fact that he is still a very young boy, he is performing exceptionally well, and he is beginning to earn a spot on the squad.When asked what piece of advice he would provide to Mainoo, the Dane responded by saying, “Just like what he’s doing: being available for training and showing his qualities in the game, which he has done.””But I think at the moment and how he’s behaved in the first team around us has been really good,” the manager said. “Obviously, it is up to the manager to choose and to play him and to get his confidence from there.” It seems to me that he is in a terrific spot.
