Another great win for Manchester United players and fans where the Red Devils were able to win 3-1 against Huddersfield Town at home, Old Trafford, in the boxing day in a crucial match due to its timing alongside the injuries and absences the team is suffering from.
Without the attacking trio, Alexis Sanchez, Anthony Martial, and Romelu Lukaku, Manchester United won by the two goals by Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic’s goal in the first half.
