Man Utd stars had an impressive performance on the day the Premier League closed.
De Gea class
The Spaniard has always been underrated when it comes to saving penalties, but in recent seasons he has changed that.
With a good prediction of Aleksandar Mitrovic’s 11-meter shot, David de Gea has owned himself 3 times to save himself in the last 2 seasons, a record only inferior to Lukasz Fabianski (4) on the West Ham United side.
Meanwhile, Mitrovic also set a sad record when kicking 4 11-meter errors in just 1 season.
Young star bright spot
Man United fans are eager to see more performances from young talent Alejandro Garnacho and Erik ten Hag has “indulged the fans” by launching the Argentinian player on the field from the start.
Not disappointing the fans at Old Trafford, Garnacho showed off the bright handling of the water. Even if he’s lucky, he can put his name on the scoreboard with a shot that hits the crossbar.
Compared to two teammates in the upline – Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho, it is clear that Garnacho has played more prominently. Therefore, it will not be surprising if Ten Hag gives the 18-year-old striker a chance in the upcoming FA Cup final.
Fred has not been a regular part of the Man Utd squad in recent weeks. But in the encounter with Fulham, he was included in the starting line-up to replace Christian Eriksen.
With the desire to show, the Samba star quickly left his mark with his dribbling effort, creating conditions for Jadon Sancho to score an equalizer. Entering the second half, Fred continued to make the fans cheer his name with a classy pass to Bruno Fernandes to raise the score to 2-1.
The recent performance may help Fred increase his chances of staying at Old Trafford next season.
In many ways, it was a bad end to the season for Fulham, but after 90 minutes at Old Trafford, they still have reason to celebrate. Marco Silva’s team ranked 10th in the Premier League, the achievement exceeded expectations.
Under the guidance of the Portuguese coach, Fulham shows certainty and can threaten any opponent. Besides, they are also quite successful in the transfer process, typically a contract named Palhinha.
The former Sporting Lisbon midfielder is currently receiving interest from many big teams, after an explosive season.
In general, the representative of London has marked an impressive return to the Premier League.
Calculating for the final
Man Utd had a good run ahead of the FA Cup final. They won all 4 games at the end of the season and took 3rd place in the Premier League. However, coach Erik ten Hag must still have doubts in the layout of the squad, when facing a Man City looking for a historic treble.
