Manchester United: Mark Goldbridge says United are back

YouTuber Mark Goldbridge believes Manchester United can go on and have a good season if they build on their victory at Everton on Sunday.

Goldbridge was giving his post-match thoughts with former goalkeeper Ben Foster on The United Stand. 

United were the 2-1 victors at Goodison Park on Sunday evening despite going down to an early goal from Everton midfielder Alex Iwobi, before goals from Antony and Cristiano Ronaldo turned the game on its head.

The result means that Erik ten Hag’s side moved up to fifth place in the Premier League table, having recovered from their 6-3 shellacking at the hands of local rivals Manchester City the previous weekend.

Goldbridge was delighted with the manner of the performance and has found a new lease of optimism following the result.

He said: “I believe Manchester United are back if they build on [the Everton win], bring Varane back into that team, Casemiro. Man Utd are going to have a good season.

“I thought it was absolutely the first glimpse, and we spoke about this a couple of weeks ago, you said it’s going to take 18 months for him to get to play like that – that’s the closest we’ve been.

“There’s a lot of work to do for Ten Hag – 70% possession, lots of shots on goal. Lots of people said Everton played badly, I think that’s disrespectful; I think United just nullified them and played very well.” 

TIF Thoughts on Goldbridge’s comments…

We believe that whilst the Red Devils put in a solid performance at Goodison Park, there is work to be done for Ten Hag’s side – but agree that the club seem to have found an element of consistency.

The side now face Newcastle United, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea in their upcoming Premier League fixtures, and we think that if they get through these tests with at least seven points, we can get behind Goldbridge’s claims and suggest that they are going to have a good season.

However, despite a solid performance at Everton, we still believe there will be trepidation about another potential false dawn for Manchester United before their next three Premier League tests.
