Jadon Sancho has been scoring in the league for the first time in five months.
Manchester United drew 2-2 with Leeds United in the 8th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at Old Trafford in Manchester, England at 5 am (Korean time) on the 9th (Korean time). Manchester United, third with 43 points, closely followed Manchester City with a two-point lead.
On this day, Manchester United operated a 4-2-3-1 formation. Verhost was at the forefront, and Rashford, Bruno, and Garnacho built the second line. Sabitzer and Fred worked together in midfield, and Shaw, Lisandro, Baran, and Dalot played in the back four. The goalkeeper’s gloves were worn by De Gea. Liz faced off with Bamford, Nyonto, and Harrison.
It was the worst start for United. In the first minute of the first half, Nyonto scored the first goal. Afterwards, Manchester United launched an offensive, but were unable to open the goal for Leeds. In the 17th minute of the first half, Garnacho’s volley, which received Bruno’s cross, slightly missed the goal. In the 26th minute of the first half, Garnacho even passed the goalkeeper, but Webber blocked the last shot before it crossed the goal line.
To make matters worse, he gave up an additional run. In the 3rd minute of the second half, Somerville’s cutback hit the desired foot and led to an own goal. In response, manager Eric Ten Hag made a change by replacing Verhost and Garnacho with Sancho and Pellistri in the 13th minute of the second half. And four minutes later, Rashford set the stage for the chase with a header.
Still needing one goal. Sancho, who was put in as a substitute and showed active movements, eventually made it. In the 25th minute of the second half, when Shaw was attacking the ball hit the defense and flowed, Sancho caught it and scored the equalizer with a calm shot. Although he didn’t win, Sancho saved the team from defeat by scoring a goal at a crucial moment.
In particular, Sancho tasted a goal in the league after a whopping 5 months. Sancho joined Manchester United from Dortmund ahead of last season. At the time, Manchester United expressed their expectations for Sancho enough to pay 76.5 million pounds안전놀이터. However, Sancho did not show his performance as expected. He failed to make a noticeable impact in the first half of this season.
Here, ahead of the World Cup, he failed to manage his condition due to a disease problem. In the end, he was also dropped from the final World Cup roster for the England national football team. Along with his sluggishness, his psychological trauma was great. In the end, Sancho left United for a while for personal training. And on the last 2 days, he was replaced in the League Cup against Nottingham Forest and made his comeback after about 100 days.
Sancho, who showed a positive appearance at the time, continued the flow until the match against Leeds. And he started scoring for the first time in a long time. In terms of the league, it has been five months since the match against Leicester City in early September.
