Manchester United winger Jadon Sancho had a bright cameo performance in the team’s draw with Everton.

Sancho came off the bench in the 59th minute in the 1-1 draw and looked lively.

Former United star Gary Neville was positive and said he felt it was Sancho’s best performance for the club so far.

Speaking on his Sky Sports podcast, Gary Neville says that he saw positive signs from the winger.

Neville impressed with Sancho

Neville said that he thought the performance was Sancho’s best for the club so far.

He said: “I thought Sancho gave his best 20 mins in a United shirt. that was the one big positive, and they didn’t lose.

“It’s been a difficult start for him. Manchester United fans are still working him out and getting to know him.

“He’s been overtaken by the likes of Varane and Ronaldo in terms of publicity and furore he’s almost just slipped into the club. He’s been a little anonymous in the first few weeks, probably frustrated. But I think he did really well in that 20 mins yesterday.

 

“You saw glimpses of what he can deliver. Passes to Ronaldo in that left channel, little slide passes like we saw from Salah to Mane today, and I think its worth mentioning that we saw a good little period from him.

“That’s a positive because I think he will go into the international break, it’ll give him confidence and send him off in a happier mood than maybe he would have been if he hadn’t played that 20 minutes.”

Starting to kick on

Sancho created two goalscoring chances during his spell on the pitch against Everton, the joint highest of all Red Devils’ players in the match.

United supporters reacted positively to the new signing’s performance, praising his display.

The winger was also praised after the Villarreal game by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Solskjaer told his Friday press conference: “Jadon was exceptional, he was electric, the crowd loved him.”

The manager did say he wasn’t entirely happy with his contribution against Everton, criticising him pulling out of the tackle which led to Everton nearly scoring a winner. That is a lesson he will have to learn, but the positive certainly outweigh that negative where Sancho is concerned.
