15 wins from 17: Importance of key Man United trio highlighted by remarkable stat after Forest win

A head-turning statistic, highlighting the importance of three members of Erik ten Hag’s squad to the success of Manchester United, has come to the fore late on Sunday.

United, of course, marked their return to action a short time ago.

Fresh off a disappointing collapse at home to Sevilla in midweek, the Red Devils turned their attentions back towards matters on the domestic front.

Hopeful of taking advantage of slip-ups on the part of top-4 rivals Tottenham and Newcastle, Ten Hag and co. made the trip to relegation-battling Nottingham Forest, for a Premier League clash.

And, when all was said and done, take advantage is precisely what the visitors to the City Ground went on to do.

Wide-man Antony proved the star of the show, opening the scoring from close range just beyond the half-hour mark, before laying on Diogo Dalot’s result-clinching 2nd fifteen minutes from time:

The players in question? Casemiro, Christian Eriksen and Bruno Fernandes.

After all three featured from the off, and impressed once more against Forest, it was subsequently revealed that, in fixtures with Casemiro, Eriksen and Fernandes making up their midfield three, United have managed a remarkable record of 15 wins and no defeats from 17.
