Fernandes praises Anthony Elanga

Elanga was replaced by Jadon Sancho with 12 minutes remaining of the contest, but the teenager was undoubtedly one of United’s few shining lights on an otherwise disappointing evening away from home.

‘I said it last season already, Anthony is a kid that works hard and is prepared to be in the team, prepared to play.’

‘He’s being a top kid, waiting for his moment, training really hard and he deserved the chance that he got today.

‘He was, for me, one of the best on the pitch. He gave everything.‘I said to him that my goal started from his header because he won the header. ’ Fernandes told MUTV shortly after the final whistle.
