A ⏱️ 5’ If Manchester United were suffering any early nerves, Telles helped them settle as he provided an assist from a corner for Scott McTominay to finish expertly.

He would go on to be a major force at both ends of the field, offering a further shot on target as well as six crosses.

At the back, he was also impressive, winning two of three aerial duels and five of eight other duels attempted.

✔️ IMPROVEMENT

Telles is fighting hard for regular game time at Old Trafford and a 8.3 FC Rating should help him out in that regard. He has generally scored well, but this was his best outing since arriving in October.

Telles: What Next?

The challenge for the Brazilian has to be to hold down his place in the side under pressure from Luke Shaw.

There is a quick turnaround, with a match against Burnley on Tuesday, but featuring against Liverpool next weekend is the real prize.
