Our picks for the 2020/21 Man Utd Goal of the Season

    Jordan Eyre: Paul Pogba v. Fulham (A)
    “When Paul plucked the ball out of the night sky back in January, tight to the touchline and with little room for manoeuvre, few could have anticipated what would happen next. Pogba evaded two Fulham challenges to find a pocket of space on the edge of the area, gave the Fulham goal only a fleeting glance and steadied himself to unleash a strike with his weaker left foot that arced perfectly into the far corner. The strike was a timely reminder that at his roaring best, United’s World Cup-winning midfielder can produce Goal of the Season contenders with alarming ease.”

    Mark Froggatt: Edinson Cavani v. Tottenham (A)
    “For the record, I agree with a few of my colleagues in choosing Fernandes at Newcastle, but for the sake of variety and frankly a more interesting article, I’m eulogising about my second-favourite strike of the season. I adore this moment and for a number of reasons: partly because of the Bruno nutmeg, instinctive Mason Greenwood cross and deft Cavani header, but mainly due to the injustice of the preceding events. El Matador had seen a great goal ludicrously disallowed by VAR and, as you’ll recall, Spurs took a shock lead moments later, prompting an angry response from Ole’s Reds in north London. Fred equalised and our glorious no.7 put us in front with a well-timed nod, that deserved the visceral away end celebrations that we’ve so sorely missed this campaign.”

    Joe Ganley: Bruno Fernandes v. Newcastle (A)
    “You never get away from what first draws you to football. And for me, that was the lightning-quick United counter-attacks of the early ’90s. Ole has brought that back: we’ve scored so many beautiful, rapid breakaway goals since he became manager that I could pick out several outstanding candidates from this season alone. But my choice for 2020/21 is our second in October’s 4-1 victory over Newcastle, scored by Bruno. Box to box in seconds, beautifully intuitive touches by numerous players, all done at warp speed… glorious. Like the great Eric Cantona goals, the more you watch it back, the more the paranoia kicks in: has this all been scripted and choreographed by some kind of string-pulling footballing deity? Probably not, but this was an impossibly perfect goal.”
