UCL: Manchester United pull off 5 star performance with empathic win

In a very unprecedented fashion, Manchester United seized control of their Champions League group with a thumping 5-0 win against German league leaders RB Leipzig on Wednesday.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, who have endured a rocky start to their season, including ensuring a humiliating 6-1 to Tottenham, now have six points from two games after building on their impressive opening win against Paris Saint-Germain.

United took the lead midway through the first half when Marcus Greenwood, 19, received a through ball from Paul Pogba and stroked the ball across Peter Gulacsi and into the far corner.

And of course, the visitors brought the heat, but United held on and went into half will a lone goal lead. 

After the break, Leipzig picked up WI the pressure, but Manchester United wasn’t having any of that. 

Manchester united soon made some substitutions, including taking off first-half goal scorer, calls that would prove very effective in the long run. 

United goalkeeper David de Gea produced a sharp save to keep out a Konate effort at the back post from a tight angle after the ball was flicked on by Poulsen.

Not too long after, Ole Gunnar made a substitution, little did last season’s semi-finalists know that a solid lashing was about to be unleashed on them as Bruno Fernandes’ presence all but changed the game. 

Substitute Rashford struck three times after coming on in the 63rd minute to remind Solskjaer he is the main man at Old Trafford.

Anthony Martial also got in on the act, scoring a penalty on an outstanding night for the three-time European champions, who are now three points clear at the top of Group H.

And Rashford will definitely not be forgetting Wednesday night anytime soon.
