At the time of writing, Manchester United have taken 3 goal lead. Diogo Dalot and Jesse Lingard have got their names on the scoring sheet as well. This is the first goal for the latter in the 2020 and the 1st in 13 months in all domestic completions.
With the Premier League well out of their reach and Manchester City carrying a 2-goal lead into their 2nd leg Carabao Cup semi-final clash, the FA Cup and the Europa League are United’s only realistic shot at silverware in a season that has been severely plagued with injuries.
Despite the gulf in quality between the two sides, United will take much confidence from this match; should they go on to win this match. Especially, after suffering back to back losses to Liverpool and Burnley in the Premier League on the road and at home respectively.
