It’s been a good week for Manchester United.

While Ralf Rangnick has yet to get his side playing free-flowing football, the determined win at Brentford was followed up by a last-gap victory over West Ham United on Saturday.

The back-to-back victories have reignited hopes of a possible push for a top-four spot, with rivals for the position dropping points over the weekend.

There’s still plenty of work for the Red Devils to do to salvage the campaign, but going into the break the mood is a lot rosier at Old Trafford.

Is Rashford back to his best again for United? Let us know in the comments section!

Rashford makes history

After struggling for form over the majority of the campaign, Rashford has showcased glimpses of his best again this week.

He scored United’s third in the win at Brentford and sparked the wild scenes on Saturday with a 93rd-minute winner against the Hammers.

Not only did he secure a vital three points for his team, Rashford made history with the strike. With that goal, the forward has scored four stoppage-time winners since making his debut for United in 2016, which is the highest number by any player since the inception of the Premier League.

Ronaldo’s role change

One of the key factors in Cristiano Ronaldo’s greatness is the manner in which he has been able to adapt his game, progressing from a flying winger into a penalty-box poacher.

On Saturday against West Ham, there were signs of the Portugal international thriving in another position too.

Ronaldo was often seen dropping off the front and into the space behind the West Ham midfield. It was a shock tactic which reportedly prompted an opposition analyst to say “Ronaldo in that pocket is killing us again.”

Although the veteran forward failed to find the net once again, he produced an important performance to help his side to victory.

Cavani celebration delight

A spontaneous moment from United forward Edinson Cavani appeared to quash recent suggestions he is a “mood killer” at the club.

After Rashford was on hand to slot the dramatic winner, the Uruguayan was evidently delighted among the celebrations, sprinting towards the Stretford End and sliding on his knees in front of the supporters.

Cavani was a key man for United last season, although the arrival of Ronaldo in the summer and number of injury niggles have meant he’s played less of a prominent role this term.

The 34-year-old has been linked with a move away from the Red Devils this month, although he looks set to remain at Old Trafford despite reported interest from Barcelona.
