45 passes before a goal, Manchester United creates an unique record
Manchester United defeated Southampton last night in an intriguing Premier League game week 6 clash at the St. Mary’s stadium.
Graziano Pelle scored the opening goal to give Southampton the lead at the early stages of the game. Manchester United came back strongly in the match thanks to their record signing youngster Anthony Martial who scored a quick brace to restore a lead. Juan Mata scored the winning goal in the second half. Graziano Pelle scored once again in the latter stages but it was just a consolation goal for the Saints.
Now as United have recorded an important win over Southampton to go ahead in the league table to second position, we decide to throw light at Juan Mata’s third goal. Even though the world hailed Martial for his brilliant brace, the move which was involved for Juan Mata’s goal was exceptional.
Manchester United players played 45 passes before Memphis Depay took an atempt at goal. But the ball hit the post. The Spanish midfielder scored from a rebound.
The move looked fantastic on the field and it was beautiful.
Here is an tweet which potrays the heat map of Manchester United’s brilliant move.
