Fred Hails United’s Counter Attacking Display In Manchester Derby Victory
Manchester United midfielder Fred says his team’s 2-0 victory over Manchester City on Sunday was a vindication for their counter-attacking approach.
It led to a United league double over their neighbours as goals from Anthony Martial and Scott McTomnay secured a win for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
“Our team is a very fast up front. And City is a team that like to keep the ball. We have a very strong and very fast counterattack. So it’s important for us,” Fred told ESPN Brasil.
“We have a very solid defence, we are defending very well. Another game without conceding goals. So, as I said, it’s important to defend well there, we managed to come out on the counterattack, our strategy worked and we came out victorious.”
The win puts United right back in the frame for Champions League qualification and now Liverpool only need two wins to win the league title.
