Brandon Williams is, without a doubt, one of the most exciting players coming through at Manchester United right now but he’s bound to get a slagging for his miss today against Norwich City.
I’d go as far as saying he is the best left-back available to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and deserves to be starting ahead of Luke Shaw.
Williams made a super effort to get to Marcus Rashford’s pass before forcing Norwich goalkeeper Tim Krul to take him down inside the box which resulted in a penalty for the Red Devils.
Although he’s played really well again today, the young left-back missed a sitter from a position every professional footballer should be scoring from.
Andreas Pereira sends a low cross into the box to Williams, who was in a great scoring position, before the defender blew his effort over the bar.
