90 in 20: United 3 Newcastle 1Video
A DIFFERENT OPINION
United legend Dimitar Berbatov watched the win over Newcastle and, after the final whistle, the uber-cool Bulgarian disagreed with the Man of the Match result.
Using his official Instagram account – which is a good follow, by the way – the former striker posted an image of Nemanja Matic to his Story alongside the caption:
“It’s not always about the goals. Well done… rock solid and MOTM for me today.”
DATA BACKS BERBA UP
As regular users of our Official App will know, the innovative Match Centre displays Opta data for each player and it is calculated into an ‘Influencer’ percentage (essentially a rating).
Matic came out on top with an impressive score of 93 per cent in recognition of his eye-catching performance in midfield, which included a brilliant turn and pass that led to James scoring our second goal, plus a clever assist for Rashford, to win the penalty.
Check out the Match Centre ‘Influencer’ scores…
93 per cent = Nemanja Matic
92 per cent = Marcus Rashford
91 per cent = Daniel James
88 per cent = Bruno Fernandes
86 per cent = Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw
