Post-match thoughts on win over Sociedad
Fantastic second half in particular and great result all around. My only complaint would be that I would have looked to make subs as soon as that 3rd goal went in and probably a few more after the second to be honest.
Fernandes and Rashford impressive, but need to give special praise to James as he was very good tonight. I said before the game started that I hoped he took his chance tonight as I thought there were encoraging signs in his most recent infrequent cameos. He was involved in so many good moves and comes away with a very nice goal and an assist.
Shame Amad didn’t come on earlier so that we could have seen a bit more of him. Poor lad barely got a touch of teh ball, had to wait ages to get hist first one. I was feeling bad for him and I can’t recall feeling like that before. Particularily in a game where you’re winning 4-0!
Honestly thought Sociedad were going to put up more of a fight. They were one of the more fancied teams left in the competition, so to brush them aside so easily is very satisfying. Good solid performance all round. Should have been another 9-0 to be honest. Great to see Fernandes boosting his open play goals tally.https://www.fanchesterunited.com/post-match-thoughts-on-win-over-sociedad/
