Jadon Sancho was one of Manchester United’s best performers against Brighton and Hove Albion, though he didn’t back that up with either an assist or a goal.
Sancho has been in a scintillating form in recent games and has always posed as a threat.
Against Southampton, the former Dortmund forward kept The Saints’ backline unrest, most notably in the first half, and went close twice to getting the score sheet, which he would eventually achieve midway through the first half.
Unfortunately, his goal, that was described as his first Old Trafford goal since his summer switch, was pulled back early in the second half by Che Adams.
The England international continued from where he left off against Brighton and came close to opening the scoring but his effort was denied by Sanchez, Brighton’s goalie.
Jadon Sancho was hard to contain and in the footage below, he sat down two players during his time on the pitch.

In his attacking contribution, he created a few chances but not a single one was converted.
He’s gradually growing into a world-beater, and hus contributions in the team have made him one of the players Ralf Rangnick can’t afford to have on the bench.
Manchester United will face Leeds United away from home in the Premier League this weekend.
Sancho is expected to keep his starting role, as long as he didn’t suffer any injury or illness before the game.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored the opener in the second half and Bruno Fernandes scored in the last-minute of the game to hand United a hard-fought 2-0 win over The Seagulls.

It was yet another world class display from the World Cup winner.
