Manchester United starlet Brandon Williams may be new to the squad this season but he’s certainly beyond expectations in a short matter of time.
The sensational youngster has grabbed every opportunity given to him so far that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer even kept him in the side against Sheffield United despite Ashley Young being available once more.
It had appeared to be the wrong decision to make before Williams turned it out by sparking a comeback by netting a brilliant effort.
It was his first senior goal with United 2-0 down at the time and it wasn’t long before they we’re 3-2 up thanks to the spark from his effort.
The match ended 3-3 but it could’ve been much worse had it not been for Williams who stood up when his more senior teammates were letting the side down.

His recoveries and aerial duels were impressive but it’s his effect on the other end of the field that has endeared him to fans already.
Williams has shown he’s equally capable in either box and so it’s not a surprise to see him ahead of Young in the pecking order already.
It’s likely that even when Luke Shaw returns from injury, Solskjaer will continue to show his faith in the 19 year old.
