Carabao Cup: Steve Bruce singles out three Man Utd players after 3-0 win over Palace
Following Manchester United's 3-0 victory over Crystal Palace in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night, Steve Bruce has singled out three players.
At Old Trafford, goals from Casemiro and Anthony Martial sealed the victory after Alejandro Garnacho put the team on the board first.
Harry Maguire made an impression on Bruce, who played for United in 417 games between 1987 and 1996.
“He’s very, very decent. He made a really good interception in the first five minutes, which was Palace’s only real effort in the first half.
“He did what Harry does. I’ve seen Harry play so many times like this, where he has done enough; he’s played well.
“You can see from the reaction of the supporters when he makes tackles. He is the one again. Fair play to him,” Bruce told Sky Sports.
On Martial, he added: “[His goal was] a quality finish, with his wrong foot.
“He’s had his critics over the years, but he is a really talented footballer. To take that on your wrong side and stick it into the top corner is a great finish.”
When asked about on-loan midfielder Sofyan Amrabat, who was played at left back on his full debut, Bruce said, “He looks like a real player.
“He questioned him at left-back and if he would fit in there comfortably. I think he played everywhere but left-back! You can see he’s got a physical presence about him. That’s going to be big for Manchester United, by the look of it.”
