Manchester United’s pre-season tour has been practically perfect so far. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is beginning to extract the maximum from his players and it’s superb to see.
The good performances kept on rolling with a close 2-1 victory against Tottenham Hotspur. The Red Devils dominated the first 45, while Spurs grew into the game in the second-half, but a moment of brilliance secured the International Champions Cup win for the Baby Faced Assassin.
It came from Angel Gomes, who is slowly but surely beginning to make a name for himself on the footballing scene.
The attacking midfielder was at the heart of a luscious United move, resulting in a sublime one-two with Juan Mata, in which he coolly slotted the ball home to send the Chinese United fans into raptures.
As you’d imagine, the 18-year-old’s stunning performance was making headlines on social media, so we’ve compiled the best reactions to Gomes’ display below…
Don’t write Gomes off. I know that Mason Greenwood is the academy graduate making all the headlines right now, but Gomes is unbelievably talented.
Not many have his vision, movement, speed and ability to perfectly execute a high-press. We’ve got an absolute gem on our hands and I’d love to see him given more minutes when the serious stuff starts next month.
