Manchester United came back from 1-0 down in style on Boxing Day, eventually running out 4-1 victors courtesy of quick fire goals, but these supporters are hailing one man who put in an energetic midfield display to help their side over the line.
Is Fred proving to be worth £52m now?
Newcastle United’s Matty Longstaff originally gave the visitors an unexpected lead, scoring his second against the Red Devils this season, before goals from Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood ensured a clinical comeback – potentially helping to finish the festive period in style.
Indeed, as per WhoScored, he made the most key passes out of anyone during the game (3) and also registered two shots, proving his worth in the middle of the park.
The 26-year-old, along with youngster Scott McTominay, have appeared to form a solid partnership in the middle of the park over these last two months – prompting due praise for the former after McTominay went off injured at half time.
Here’s how supporters hailed the South American on Twitter.
Astounding performance out there, Pastor
