Manchester United managed to get their first home victory of the season in glorious fashion as the Red Devils cruised to a 5-0 victory against the team at the top of the Bundesliga.
Mason Greenwood opened the scoring in the first half as he shot the ball across Gulacsi, scoring his first Champions League goal. However, Marcus Rashford was the hero of the match as he scored a hat-trick off the bench in 27 minutes. A feat that, only matched by current United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. He would be proud of the Englishman.
Manchester United captain Harry Maguire told MUTV: “After Spurs, we were all devastated and just three games into the season it felt like it was a big crisis,”
“It was quite a strange feeling, but we don’t expect to lose games at Old Trafford and we definitely don’t expect to lose games like we did.”
“The first three games we were conceding far too many chances. So as a defensive unit, having kept the most clean sheets in Europe last season, we knew we had to improve to be more solid.”
“We have worked hard on the training ground and since the international break we have gone back to not conceding chances like last year when we were a solid unit and a solid base.”
“It has been important, for me as a defender, to give the forward lads every opportunity to go and win the game. One, two, three goals it should end up in a win. At the moment we are doing that.”
“It’s a start, but it is still an early win in the season. It is going to be a long journey, but we’ve got to improve. We know that and we are doing so at the minute, but there is a long way to go.”
United has now beaten both PSG and Leipzig in the Champions League group stage matches and would hope to surely advance to the knockout rounds.
