It’s that time of the week again! – The BBC have picked their Premier League ‘Team of the Week’, with the latest fantasy 11 including two Manchester United stars.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Red Devils were back in action on Sunday when they travelled to the Midlands to take on Bruno Lage’s Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Coming into the game, United would have been hopeful they could continue their unbeaten opening to the new 2021-22 season and in turn, break a long-standing Premier League record.
Despite putting in a disappointing performance overall, after striker Mason Greenwood secured a late second-half goal, United was well on their way to bagging all three points as well as becoming the first side in English footballing history to go 28 domestic away matches unbeaten.
Following the final Premier League match of matchday three, which eventually ended 1-0 to United, BBC Sport has dropped their ‘TOTW’, which includes goalkeeper David De Gea and midfielder Paul Pogba.
Writing in his column, pundit Garth Crooks admitted that with just minutes to go in United’s game against Wolves, his first-choice goalkeeper was Chelsea’s, Edouard Mendy.
However, following a world-class point-blank double wonder save to keep defender Roman Saiss out, Crooks was left with no choice but to include the Spain international instead.
When clarifying his decision to include Pogba in the heart of his ‘TOTW’, Crooks wrote: “This wasn’t Manchester United’s finest hour at Wolves, but they got the result, partly due to De Gea’s brilliance and Pogba’s determination.”
