New signees Raphaël Varane and Jadon Sancho made their first appearances for Manchester United in yesterday’s 1-0 win over Wolves. The Red Devils struggled in the first half, but continued attacks in the second half allowed Mason Greenwood to score a solo goal in the 79th.
While Jadon Sancho’s cameo was not as exciting, the French center back received acclaim for an amazing performance in which he recorded his first Premier League and Manchester United assist in his debut.
Raphaël Varane, therefore, became the first center-back in history to earn an assist in his debut. The defender also helped United maintain their first clean sheet of the season, having failed in the first two games against Southampton and Leeds. Reece James is also the only defender with more assists this season than him.
Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s men are third in the standings with 7 points, two points behind Tottenham.
