By db-admin

DBasia.news –  After losing twice in a row in the Premier League, Manchester United returned to their winning ways with a score of 6-0 over Tranmere Rovers in the FA Cup round four. Not only that, in the match, the Red Devils also carved out some interesting records.

Man United’s half-dozen goal celebration at Prenton Park, Sunday (01/26) PM, was scoredby Harry Maguire (10 ‘), Diogo Dalot (13’), Jesse Lingard (16 ‘), Phil Jones (41’), Anthony Martial (45 ‘), and Mason Greenwood penalty (56’).

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer did not have many options for rotating the team squad and fielding players who were used to playing in the first team, such as Martial, Victor Lindelof, Andreas Pereira, Luke Shaw, and the £ 80 million defender, Harry Maguire.

In addition, the emergence of names such as Dalot, Jones, and Lingard as scorers was quite unique. Likewise Harry Maguire, who scored his first goal for Manchester United since moving from Leicester City in the summer of 2019.

Especially for Lingard, the British player finally ended the record of never scoring goals or assists in English competition for 366 days. The record was even better as the 27-year-old player was chosen as Man of the Match.
