Find out the result of coach Rangnick's first match with Manchester United

Manchester United began the era of German coach Ralf Rangnick with a difficult 1-0 victory over its guest Crystal Palace with a Brazilian unique goal, in the fifteenth phase of the English Premier League football Sunday.


Rangnick, who succeeded the sacked Norwegian coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer due to poor results, was appointed as interim coach until the end of the season.


United achieved their second win in a row in the league after they dropped Arsenal in an exciting match (3-2), led by Michael Carrick, who supervised three matches after the dismissal of Solskjaer before leaving the club.


And the "Red Devils" raised their score to 24 points in sixth place, a point ahead of Tottenham, the winner of the match 3-0 at home to Norwich City.


United hopes that Rangnick, who will move to play an advisory role for two years at the end of the season, according to the statement announcing his contract, will lead him to the titles again after he achieved his last title in 2017 with Portuguese coach Jose Mourinho.


Rangnick, nicknamed "the godfather of German football", who influenced several coaches such as his compatriot Jurgen Klopp, the Liverpool coach, and Thomas Tuchel, the Chelsea coach, is distinguished by high and continuous pressure and high-speed vertical counter-attacks.


In his first test, United managed for the first time to keep a clean sheet in their stadium in all competitions nearly eight months ago, specifically since their match against Granada last April.


Rangnick did not make any change to the squad that started against Arsenal, keeping Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo in the spearhead position, along with Jadon Sancho, Marcus Rashford and Portuguese Bruno Fernandes in the attack.


There has been speculation about Ronaldo's ability at the age of 36 to play in the style of Rangnick.


And the tactical impact of Rangnick appeared from the first minutes, as United controlled the match and put high pressure on the opponent, recovering the ball quickly in the event of losing it.


Despite the superior performance, the team did not pose a great threat to the goal, as the most dangerous opportunity for Fernandes was with a shot from outside the area, which was kept away by the goalkeeper (26).


Rangnick pushed Mason Greenwood instead of Sancho after half an hour of the match in the absence of dangerous opportunities, before a wonderful free ball rebounded by United back Alex Telles from a narrow angle off the left side of the crossbar (68).


Palace's most dangerous opportunity came when the ball reached James Tomkins from a corner and he headed to Ghanaian Jordan Ayew on the second post, followed by it from a close distance that passed centimeters from the other post (75).


Farid hinted at the victory for United after he dropped the ball in a superb way, "Loeb" from outside the area towards the top of the right corner (77).


It will not be long before Rangnick supervises the second match when United receive the Swiss team Young Boys on Wednesday at the end of the group stage in the Champions League in a marginal match after securing the top of their group.

Third win in a row for Tottenham

After a good start for French coach Patrick Vieira with Crystal Palace, during which he won a wonderful victory in the home of Manchester City, he failed to win his last four matches in the league.


Tottenham won their third consecutive league win by beating Norwich City 3-0 with goals from Brazilian Lucas Moura (10), Colombian Davinson Sanches (67) and South Korean Hyun-Min Son (77).


Mora scored the first goal for the Italian Antonio Conte with a superb shot from outside the area in the top right corner (10), while Sanchez added the second when the ball fell in front of him to the goal door after a corner kick.


Son scored the third goal after receiving the ball from Sanchez inside the area, evading the defender and hitting the net (77).


Leeds United snatched a 2-2 draw in the fifth minute of stoppage time against its guest, Brentford, with a goal by Patrick Bamford.


Leeds had advanced through Welshman Tyler Roberts, while Chandon Baptiste of Grenada Islands (54) and Spaniard Serje Canos (61) scored the visitors' goals.
