By Joo Dae-eun
Manchester United emerged victorious in a crucial clash against Burnley during the 6th round of the 2023/24 Premier League season. The match, held at Turf Moor in Burnley, England on the 24th (Korean time), saw Manchester United secure a hard-fought 1-0 win.
With consecutive losses against Arsenal and Bayern Munich, Manchester United desperately needed a win to regain their momentum. Andre Onana, who had been criticized for his recent performances, was also looking to bounce back.
In their previous match against Munich, Onana had failed to save Lelori Jané’s shot, and went on to concede three more goals. Following the game, football statistics company ‘Foot Mob’ heavily criticized Onana, giving him a rating of 5.6. Since joining Manchester United, Onana has conceded a total of 14 goals in just six games, leading to some questioning manager Eric ten Haag’s decision to replace David de Gea, a revered figure at the club.
However, Onana redeemed himself in the match against Burnley. In the ninth minute of the first half, he made a brilliant save to deny Zeki Amdouni’s powerful header. In the 29th minute of the second half, Onana once again showcased his skills, preventing a goal by intercepting Jakob Brun Larsen’s shot. Towards the end of the game, Onana made another crucial save, this time stopping Burnley Benson’s shot.
The football media outlet ’90min’ praised Onana for his performance, awarding him a score of 7 and highlighting his crucial saves in the first half when Manchester United were under pressure. Additionally, according to ‘Foot Mob’, Onana received a rating of 8.2, the second-highest after Bruno Fernandez, who scored the winning goal. Onana’s four saves in the match contributed to Manchester United’s hard-fought clean sheet victory.
Thanks to Onana’s resurgence, Manchester United secured their first win in three league games. The victory propelled them from 13th to 8th in the Premier League standings. With renewed confidence, Manchester United will look to build on this success and continue their climb up the table.
