Which position will Jadon Sancho play in for Manchester United next season? Comment below

And Sancho says he has a great understanding with all his new United teammates and that he was happy to interchange positions throughout the game, something that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be looking to exploit next season.

He told talkSPORT : “Yeah, Luke (Shaw )is a great lad. I always have a good relationship with him, Marcus [Rashford] and Harry [Maguire] so it’s going to be fun (at United).

“We knew that me and Raheem (Sterling), on the wings, had to go at them and create space for Harry Kane. I thought we did so and that’s how we got the goals tonight so I’m very happy for the team and especially for Harry Kane.

“Me and Raz (Sterling), we always switch. We can play right, left, or in the middle. It’s not a problem for both of us. We just keep switching. Let’s say if it’s a counter attack, I’m on the left, he’s on the right, we just stay in those positions and whenever we want to switch, we’ll switch.”
