Guillermo Varela will be very pleased with how he got on during his full Manchester United debut.
The 22-year-old Uruguayan acquitted himself excellently in the right-back position. There were a few momentary lapses throughout the game but overall, up against top quality opposition in a high pressure game, Varela rarely looked flustered or out of his depth.
It’s a very encouraging start for Varela and one I hope he can build on in the coming weeks with so many injuries creating opportunities for youngsters. Here’s what a few fans thought of his performance:
Varela has been outstanding. #MUFC

Varela has been sharp, definitely impressed me so far. Darmian needs a competitor in that position.

Varela has been on point tonight, solid. So not sure what the critics were on at last PL game.
