Sofyan Amrabat believes Manchester United can still do “something big” this season after the Morocco midfielder helped his troubled side get back on track. Amrabat impressed on his first start for the club as he filled in at left-back before switching to his preferred midfield role during Tuesday’s League Cup third-round win against Crystal Palace.
Amrabat, 27, played a key role in the 3-0 victory at Old Trafford, lifting some of the pressure on the team after a dismal start to the campaign.
After an injury delayed his debut following his transfer deadline-day arrival from Fiorentina, Amrabat finally came off the bench in Saturday’s 1-0 win at Burnley before starting against Palace. Those victories have changed the mood at the club after United lost four of their opening six matches in a season for the first time since 1986.
Amrabat is confident that Erik ten Hag’s men have the talent to put their shaky start behind them and enjoy a successful season. “I have a lot of confidence because I see that we have so much quality. I think it was a bit unlucky with the injuries we had. Of course for every team it’s difficult if you have a lot of injuries. We have a fantastic coach, we have fantastic fans, so I believe that we can do something big,” he said.
Meanwhile, Luton Town’s difficult start to the season hit a new low with a shock 1-0 defeat with third-tier Exeter City at Exeter. Luton got promoted to the Premier League last season, but they are winless after five games.
