Manchester United top picks and players to watch vs Sheriff Tiraspol UEFA Europa League 2022-23
Marcus Rashford: Manchester United’s no. 10 has become a key player in Erik Ten Hag’s high-intensity style of play. Rashford scored a brace in their last Premier League match against Arsenal and also netted in the win against Liverpool. The English forward had two goals in the 2020-21 UEFA Europa League campaign.
Bruno Fernandes: The Portuguese playmaker has been Man United’s playmaker-in-chief since his transfer from Sporting Lisbon in 2020. Fernandes had five goals and four assists in the UEL 2020-21 season and he also made 12 goal-contributions in the 2019-20 UEL campaign. His abilities to shoot from distance and make late runs into the opposition box should alert the Sheriff defence in this game.
