After Manchester United's 1-1 draw with Atletico Madrid, Ralf Rangnick praised Nemanja Matic for his game-changing performance.

When Matic and Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Alex Telles appeared in the 67th minute, Anthony Elanga came on and equalized with his first touch.

Youngest goal scorer in Champions League knockout stage Elanga received much of the post-match coverage despite Matic's impressive performance in his first game in five weeks.

As Rangnick pointed out, "Everyone could hear them sing that tune." It's a song called Rhythm Is A Dancer. It's a great gesture for the youngster, and it demonstrates the ingenuity of our fans.

There was a lot more going on here than just his getting all the headlines, I think." We shifted the momentum in the second half, regrouped the entire squad, and it was not just him who contributed, but also the other players and substitutes, notably Nemanja Matic."

In spite of Tottenham's loss to Burnley on Wednesday night, Arsenal beat Wolves on Thursday to close the gap on United in fourth place to one point.

Watford are currently in the relegation zone after a 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Crystal Palace in the midweek. When Manchester United play City in the Etihad derby on Saturday, they face Tottenham at home.
