Manchester United secured a hard-fought 2-1 victory on the road against Sheffield United, a result that is not often taken for granted in away matches for the club. While the win was well-deserved, it didn’t quite reflect the dominant performance that fans had hoped for.
The players on the pitch exhibited tremendous effort and commitment throughout the match. However, there was a sense that something was missing until Diogo Dalot’s late heroics.
Just before Dalot’s spectacular goal from outside the box, Sofyan Amrabat came close to scoring a long-range winner. Unfortunately, his shot rebounded off the post, denying him his first goal in a Manchester United jersey.
Amrabat’s performance was commendable as he settled into life at Manchester United. He impressively won all nine of the duels he contested, providing the kind of determination and fight that the team needed in the midfield.
Amrabat’s efforts were not only appreciated by the supporters but also garnered praise from his Manchester United teammates. Hannibal Mejbri, on his Instagram page, left a message simply saying, ‘wow,’ in response to Amrabat’s performance. Match winner Diogo Dalot also joined in, describing Amrabat as a ‘beast’ and applauding his dominant display.
Amrabat’s contributions highlighted his potential, reassuring fans that the absence of Casemiro wasn’t as detrimental as some had feared. It’s evident that there is more to come from Amrabat, making him an exciting prospect for the club.
