Great victory over Burnley, did the Red Devils find a way out?

For a long time, the Old Trafford team has not given their fans a victory with a score difference. And on the last day of 2021, Ronaldo and his teammates gave the audience a spectacular match in the reception to Burnley. There, people also see the fresh features in the use of troops of Ralf Rangnick. Accordingly, compared to the draw against Newcastle, the German leader made 6 changes.

Instead of partnering with Fred and often taking on the sweeping role as usual, McTominay was allowed to operate more freely by the 63-year-old captain and assigned the defensive task to the old general Nemanja Matic. This change came into play when the young Scottish star made a positive contribution to the Reds’ attacking front.

It was McTominay who broke the deadlock after a beautiful cut right in front of the 16m50 area. And from a similar distance, the 39th midfielder eliminated Wayne Hennessey to help Ronaldo score one of the easiest goals of his career. In addition, the 25-year-old midfielder also convinces viewers with reasonable movement situations, creating harmony in both offensive and defensive fronts.
Besides, with Bruno suspended, Ralf Rangnick decided to launch the duo Mason Greenwood and Jadon Sancho into the field from the start. He turned the 4-2-2-2 formation almost into a 4-4-2 when the two young stars stuck to the edge more. That layout somewhat ‘unlocks’ Sancho’s talent because he has space to dribble. From the attack on the right, the £ 73 million signing had a delicate finish to make it 2-0.

The remarkable change of the strategist born in 1958 also comes from the duo on the attack. Realizing the importance of Cavani when he was on the field, Rangnick immediately put him in the starting line-up to side with Ronaldo. Both of these two strikers have worked together quite well with clever running situations. Perhaps, Rashford will still learn a lot from the seniors when he has to sit on the bench.
