WHO WILL YOU CHOOSE?
Greenwood v Bournemouth (Goal 1)
Four of our goals from the 5-2 thriller against the Cherries have been nominated, the first of which a venomous left-footed strike by Mason Greenwood which levelled the match at 1-1. The teenager’s effort from just inside the area was too powerful for Bournemouth keeper Aaron Ramsdale, having been set up by a perfect ball across the edge of the box by Bruno Fernandes.
Martial v Bournemouth
Next it was Anthony Martial’s turn to get on the scoresheet against the south-coast side. This tim,e the keeper was nowhere near the strike, which flew into the top corner as the Frenchman skipped inside from the left flank and curled the ball into the far side of the net, clipping the underside of the bar on the way in.
Greenwood v Bournemouth (Goal 2)
Homegrown product Greenwood got the second of his brace against Bournemouth thanks to Nemanja Matic winning the ball back for United high up the pitch, but, after the Serbian played the ball, it was Mason who did the rest. Dancing away from the full-back, Greenwood created enough space to sweetly fire the ball home from an angle in front of the empty Stretford End.
Fernandes v Bournemouth
The winner of June’s competition, Bruno Fernandes rounded off the win against the Cherries with a free-kick worthy of consideration for this month’s award. Struck with pace and power from just inside the D, the ball swung away from a helpless Ramsdale and found the corner of the net.
Pogba v Aston Villa
Although Paul Pogba had to wait 15 months since his last strike, the Frenchman’s finish at Villa Park was full of quality and left Pepe Reina rooted in his goal. Fernandes fired in a corner to Pogba who was waiting outside the area and, with a touch to set himself, he slotted it into the bottom right-hand corner with pinpoint accuracy.
Rashford v Southampton
A goal down to teamwork and finished by Marcus Rashford at the back post. Pogba’s ball landed at the feet of Martial, who under the challenge of three Saints players, couldn’t stay upright to turn and shoot himself, but had the presence of mind to spot Rashford’s run and assist his strike partner who stroked it in with his left.
