Man Utd 5 -1 Leeds: Pogba Impress, Fernandes Grabs Hat-Trick

Manchester United’s start to the season was a superb one as Bruno Fernandes’ hat-trick rocked rivals Leeds United.

Varane’s arrival from Real Madrid was followed by a breathless Premier League triumph, with Fernandes’ treble complemented by Mason Greenwood and Fred's goals as Man United thrashed old foes Leeds 5-1.

The Portuguese put Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men ahead at the break, only for Luke Ayling’s stunner to level things for Marcelo Bielsa’s men early in the second half.

But Greenwood scored smartly from an exquisite Pogba pass before a hopeful Fernandes effort was adjudged to have crossed the line and he then completed his hat-trick with an unerring finish.

Fred added a fifth as Pogba provided his fourth assist of an afternoon when Solskjaer’s name echoed around a buzzing Old Trafford.

The majority of 72,732 in attendance were in dreamland and would welcome Sancho for his debut as the match wound down.
