Jadon Sancho is back with a bang!
The Manchester United star marked his return to Premier League action with an important equalising goal against historic rivals Leeds.
Erik ten Hag revealed prior to kick-off that Sancho had suffered with an illness earlier this week, but that didn’t stop him coming off the bench in the second half and having a positive impact on the match.
Sancho took to Twitter after the match and wrote: “I can’t tell you how much I’ve missed this feeling! Team showed great character to stay in the game, we go again on the weekend.”

Just minutes after Facundo Pellistri and Sancho came off the bench, Marcus Rashford scored a header to put United on their way towards a comeback to avoid defeat.
That comeback was complete when Sancho found the back of the net in the 70th minute.
Here is what supporters had to say about Sancho on Twitter:
JADON SANCHO IS BACK!
