Antony opened the scoring for his new club on his debut to give them a 1-0 lead at half-time.

Mikel Arteta’s side fought back in the second-half through Bukayo Saka, only for United to storm into a two-goal lead after two goals from Marcus Rashford.

‘What I like about this team...’

Speaking on Sky Sports, pundit Keane said:

“It was a hugely important win for United. What I like about this team I’ve seen over the last few weeks is the spirit, the personality in the team.

“They were excellent. They were clinical. They could have scored a few more goals. Another big win for the club. I think the momentum is coming back.”

He added:

“The feel-good factor is there. The fans are buzzing, it was a good day for them.

“There has been a lot of negativity, last season and the start of this season but when you win a few football matches everyone feels great.”

On a roll

United are playing with confidence now and Erik ten Hag is getting the best out of his players.

They seem to be operating with a more settled starting XI now after their tough opening couple of matches of the season.

This team is more organised, every player knows their job and the quality at the top end of the pitch is starting to show.

Next up is a Europa League clash this Thursday against Real Sociedad which will be another difficult test.

Their next league game is next weekend away at Crystal Palace. The Eagles go into that one having won once in their opening six matches.
