After a challenging week for the team and manager Erik ten Hag, United defeated Mauricio Pochettino’s team 2-1 thanks to two goals from Scott McTominay.

The Argentina international has been the team’s mainstay in recent weeks. Last week, he scored against Galatasaray after a spectacular bicycle kick against Everton.

Following a crushing loss to Newcastle United over the weekend, Ten Hag changed up his assault, starting Antony and Rasmus Hojlund in place of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial on the bench.

After scoring his fifth and sixth goals of the season, McTominay was awarded man of the match; nevertheless, Scholes thought the teenage winger could have been more worthy of the honor after “going up another level” against Chelsea.

‘I thought Garnacho was excellent,’ Scholes told Premier League Productions. ‘I thought he was probably the best player on the pitch.

Erik ten Hag is anxious to prevent Jadon Sancho from making a “empty gesture,” therefore Manchester United is apparently willing to accept a “significant loss” on him.

Sancho has a disruptive impact on the rest of United’s team, according to manager Ten Hag, who is determined to get rid of the winger.

This season, Sancho and Ten Hag had a nasty falling out, with the Dutchman publicly criticizing his player in the media for his lack of effort in practice. After spending £73 million on him in 2021, United is now willing to suffer a “significant loss” on the player in the January transfer window.
