Manchester United fans full of praise for Morgan Schneiderlin following display against Manchester City

by Leo Nieboer

Manchester United fans were mightily impressed with Morgan Schneiderlin‘s powerful performance in their side’s 1-0 win over Manchester City on Sunday.

The Frenchman, who was unjustifiably left out of the side against Liverpool on Thursday, was a tireless source of grit and steel in what was a must-win game.

Man United fans were quick to shower praise on Schneiderlin after his no-nonsense performance:

It feels as if Schneiderlin was made for games like these. In an afternoon that was largely characterised by a tenacious midfield battle, it was the 26-year-old who came on top.

And it is no coincidence that Schneiderlin’s inclusion in the side merits such a higher win ratio (58%) than when he is left out (28%). He serves as United’s unabashed, authoritarian general in the middle of the park, and in a must-win game he had the midfield on complete lockdown.

United fans will hope to see Schneiderlin – who has hitherto been unable to have a sizeable run of games at Old Trafford – feature as much as possible for the remainder of this season.
