Evra, the shock


By: Manu Tournoux

Patrice Evra was mocked for his half-time analysis of Manchester United-Aston Villa on Prime Video. But the former French international predicted the final score: trailing 2-0, the Red Devils won 3-2!

While Premier League followers mainly had in mind the imminent dismissal of Erik ten Hag at half-time of Manchester United-Aston Villa, with the Red Devils trailing 2-0 at Old Trafford, on Tuesday evening, Patrice Evra delivered a funny analysis on the set of Prime Video (in England): “ if they play the same way, and if they are more focused on set plays, I won’t be surprised if they win 3-2 “.

The networks then went into panic, mockery arose against the former MU left-back, some even wondering if the ex-French international had not eaten a raw turkey once again (as he did). had done in one of his crazy videos on Instagram). But that’s exactly what happened on the pitch during this Premier League Boxing Day poster!

After conceding goals from set pieces, by John McGinn (21st) and Leander Dendoncker (26th), under the noses of André Onana and Raphaël Varane helplessly, the Mancuniens completely turned the match around in the second half: Alejandro Garnacho scored twice (59th and 71st), before a winning goal from Rasmus Hojlund (82nd), for his very first achievement in the English championship.

United remained in three matches without a victory but is recovering both psychologically and financially: Erik ten Hag’s players, still sixth in the standings, are five points behind Tottenham, the last in the top 4, who travel to Brighton on Thursday.
