There’s a bit of United about United this second half!

After the match, Man United fans singled out club veteran Antonio Valencia for praise. The Ecuadorian played at right-back and had a cracker of a game, notching up three assists and providing a constant threat from the wing in a man-of-the match winning performance.
I think the biggest stunner of the game was Antonio Valencia racking up three assists. THREE. World-class season impending.

Matteo Darmian will have a long ride on the bench if Antonio Valencia continues to play like this.
