Ratings: Harrop, Redmond and Mitchell bright sparks against Sparta Prague

Manchester United made it two wins in two matches in the Premier League International Cup, beating Sparta Prague at leigh Sports Village on Thursday evening. United had previously beaten Villarreal in the tournament earlier in the season, with Josh Harrop, one of the goal scorers this evening, scoring the only goal of the match. Devonte Redmond was United’s other goalscorer against the Czech side, putting United in the driving seat in the group, ahead of next week’s clash with Middlesbrough to head the group after three matches. United have played some good football at this level this season, despite playing without an out-and-out striker, seeing the liked of Scott McTominay, Devonte Redmond, Matty Willock and others lead the line at times. United will be up for the challenge in their last match of 2016 in a weeks time, one which will give them something to aim for next season, being that their performances in the league have not been too good. Nicky Butt will guide the side to aim for the top spot next week, although they could still qualify as one of the best runners up next week if the worst comes to the worst.

Goals: Josh Harrop 21′, Devonte Redmond 56′

Manchester United: O’Hara; Olosunde (El Fitouri 78′), Tuanzebe, Poole, Mitchell; Willock, Goss; Harrop, McTominay, Kehinde (Gribbin 68′); Redmond (Scott 68′)

Substitutes Not Used: M. Johnstone, Doughty, Buffonge, Warren

Manchester United

45 Kieran O’Hara

Had a good game in goal with not a lot to do. Seemed to deal with everything that he had to get involved in.

Matthew Olosunde

Played well on the right with United more than enough for he visitors, who just did not test United enough. The American was replaced by El Fitouri with 12 minutes remaining.

38 Axel Tuanzebe

Composed and confident display. Got forward at times, pushing the visitors in order to see United prevail. Star in the making.

12345

Regan Poole

Dominant in defence and did his bit going forward with United pressing forward.

12345

35 Demetri Mitchell

Assisted in United's second goal, playing well in the left-back role, despite playing further forward for much of the game.

12345

Matty Willock

Commanding in midfield and strong on the ball. Had his moments in the match. Usually plays further forward, or has this season. Good to see him in the heart of defence.

Had some good moments in the match, helping control the game in midfield, which seemed to be where United were stifling their oposition.

Scored United's first goal in the 21st minute, breaking forward, staying onside, rounding the keeper for a cool finish. Looked to had injured himself soon after, but was fine to continue.

39 Scott McTominay

One of the players who can play many different positions and does so to the best of his abilities to help his team.

12345

Tosin Kehinde

Played well on the left side of the attack, not always getting involved, but doing his bit. Replaced by Gribbin with just over twenty minutes remaining.

12345

Devonte Redmond

Scored United's second goal with a great finish after being assisted by Mitchell. Had a good game as United furthest forward player, which will instill confidence ahead of next weeks clash with Boro. Replaced by Scott in the 68th minute.

Substitutes

Charlie Scott

Replaced Redmond. Unlucky not to score United's third goal of the evening. Had a good game.

Callum Gribbin

Replaced Kehinde. Saw upset on Monday in the FA Youth Cup, but was on the winning team tonight. Played well in his twenty minute cameo.
