“My goodness”… Fernandes and Diallo hail Man Utd ‘warrior’ after Newcastle clash, Amad was simply blown away

Manchester United beat Newcastle United in the Premier League, with Erik ten Hag’s men thankfully back to winning ways. 

Following a lackluster performance against Arsenal the previous weekend, the Red Devils rallied against Eddie Howe’s Newcastle United team, winning 3-1 as a result.

Even though they once again put themselves in a difficult situation in the last stages, goals from academy graduate Kobbie Mainoo, Amad Diallo, and a much-needed Rasmus Hojlund strike were enough to secure victory on the night.


Though there were a few exceptional acts that evening, Sofyan Amrabat was undoubtedly the best.

Sofyan Amrabat fantastic against Newcastle United 

Following a respectable showing against Arsenal over the weekend, Amrabat disproved many of his skeptics against Newcastle.

On the field, he was possibly Manchester United’s best player. Amrabat controlled the middle of the field all around, tackling, intercepting, and playing defensive midfield.

The desperate tackle on Alexander Isak summed up the warrior-like performance. Although Amrabat’s valiant efforts ultimately secured the United victory, that goal had the potential to completely change the course of the match. It was not lost on his teammates.

Bruno Fernandes and Amad Diallo praise Sofyan Amrabat 

The Moroccan took to Instagram after the fixture to send the following message to Manchester United fans. It read: ‘Proud to get the win in our last home game. Huge shoutout to the fans for their incredible support this season 🙏🔴 Two games to go.’

Manchester United first-team squad teammates Amad Diallo and club captain Bruno Fernandes hailed the midfielder for his efforts. Amad was blown away, with his message translating to ‘My goodness brother.’

His fine performances ultimately beg the question. Is this his last appearance at Old Trafford? His loan deal is active for two more games, and it hasn’t looked likely thus fair the Red Devils were set to extend.

However, after two strong fightback performances, could things have changed in the mind of Ten Hag? Time will tell.
