5 things we learned as Manchester United beat Newcastle 3-2, Amad Diallo is a superstar

Manchester United played the penultimate Premier League game of the season on Wednesday, here are five things we learned from the game. 

Manchester United extended this form against Newcastle, putting on a performance that was significantly better than in previous months, following a respectable showing against Arsenal.

In the 32nd minute, Kobbie Mainoo opened the score after receiving a pass from Amad Diallo and finding himself in a lot of space.

After the interval, Newcastle did manage to pull one back, but Erik ten Hag’s team took a 2-1 lead when Amad scored his first Premier League goal for United.

Rasmus Hojlund produced a fantastic striker’s goal to seal the victory. He drove past the Newcastle defense and found a gap to slip his shot past Martin Dubravka.

After the game, Newcastle’s late goal was only a consolation as the score ended 3-2.

Here are five things we learned…

Kobbie Mainoo had the calmest head in Old Trafford

When Mainoo found himself in a lot of space inside the Newcastle box in the 32nd minute, other players could have freaked out.

However, our midfield treasure possessed the calmest demeanor in Manchester as he took his time to put the ball past Martin Dubravka and into the near corner.

He made sure everyone knew how amazing he is after a few poor performances in previous weeks.

Amad Diallo not starting all along is criminal

Amad made his United debut last weekend, after months of suffering. Given the awful performances Antony has endured, this was long time.

Amad was excellent against Newcastle, building on his performance against Arsenal, where he helped Mainoo score the first goal.

Amad’s fantastic evening continued as he scored United’s second goal, making the score 2-1 at the moment.

Rasmus Hojlund silences his critics with 15th goal of the season

Hojlund has performed incredibly well for a rookie striker in his debut season and frequently receives unfair criticism.

However, he proved he had what it takes to become a world-class player when he came off the bench against Newcastle and scored an incredible solo goal.

For the number 11, his 15th goal of the year is a huge accomplishment, and we anticipate that he will have a tremendous season next year.

Sofyan Amrabat shows he should be signed

Sofyan Amrabat is another player who has seen limited usage in previous months but has excelled in the last two games.

The Moroccan has closed the huge gap in United’s midfield and given the club a more organized, as if they had a game plan.

It certainly raises the question of whether United could have competed for a spot in the top four if this midfield had been in place during the terrible recent run.

There could be hope yet for Erik ten Hag at Manchester United

The last week will have given the Manchester United boss much more of a leg up, even though his future is still uncertain.

United was once again significantly superior to what we had grown accustomed to in recent weeks and months while playing Newcastle.

If he is to stay in this role after the current one, he is a solid ball player with a much superior defensive framework.

Crucially, this victory ensures that European football will still exist on the last day of the season.
