Morning, United fans
Rio Ferdinand reckons Jadon Sancho has revved into top form because Mason Greenwood and Anthony Martial are out of the picture.
Manchester United’s £73million summer buy is finally showing his Borussia Dortmund pedigree as United grip onto fourth place in the Premier League.
The England winger teed up two goals in Sunday’s 4-2 win at Leeds.
And Old Trafford legend Ferdinand told his Vibe with Five podcast: “There is not that big threat that I’m probably not going to play next week or he’s got a chance to play somebody else.
“He probably has been told you’re going to play now, you’re going to start every game.
“Go make it your own shirt. That confidence lift and shift from looking over his shoulder to ‘no, I’m here to play’ is a big difference.”
But it’s Red Devils’ attacking midfielder Bruno Fernandes who is way ahead in the Prem stats for creating chances.
The Portugal superstar’s total of 73 surpasses Liverpool duo Trent Alexander-Arnold (64) and Mo Salah (49) in second and third.
Meanwhile, Atletico Madrid could face a selection headache for tomorrow’s Champions League last-16 first leg at home to United.
Skipper Koke missed training as he battles to be fit, while Matheus Cunha and Daniel Wass are also sidelined.
Old Trafford keeper David de Gea will return to Spain for that match claiming he feels more like a Manc than a Madrileno.
And finally, United starlet Anthony Elanga could reportedly consider switching from Sweden to Cameroon.
