A Manchester United fan has captured Erik ten Hag ball in full flow from the stands against Crystal Palace and it's a thing of beauty.
Man United bounced back from their Premier League defeat to Arsenal by beating Palace on Saturday in an ill-tempered game.
Goals from Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford ensured a 2-1 win at Old Trafford as they keep the pressure on Arsenal and Manchester City.
And Ten Hag will be extremely pleased with his side's second goal as they completed a sensational team move, with the likes of Alejandro Garnacho, Fred and Casemiro playing between the lines and linking up nicely.
Luke Shaw then brilliantly picked out Rashford, who completed the free-flowing play with a tidy goal to put Man United two-up.
The Dutch boss liked what he saw as he praised his team's quality in the first 70 minutes.
"I love many things. First of all, the quality of the game. In the first 70 minutes, we played a really good game on the pitch, in the possession, the formations and the passing security," he said.
"The defensive transitions and the counter press were also brilliant and I think we dominated the game. I think we deserved the lead and especially the second goal was a great goal to see."
On Rashford's superb team goal, Ten Hag added: "It was a brilliant goal and finally he [Rashford] was on the end. But it was a great team goal, by switching play, playing between the lines, great combinations and then finally he finished off a brilliant pass by Luke Shaw as well, the cross. And then of course the finish was very good.
"I think it was difficult for the opponent when we bring in that sub [Garnacho on for Wout Weghorst] because it was a different dynamic all of a sudden.
"They are focusing on a player who is playing all of the time on the ball and then they have a player who is going round the back of them.
"It was great to see that the team picked up a good dynamic and the change, and took the benefit of it."
Ten Hag's influence is starting to show, with the work in training now paying off in matches.
Man United currently sit in third place in the table, eight points behind league leaders Arsenal and three points adrift of Manchester City.
