The Beast's best

Sandro didn't have to think too long before answering the question.

Was his stunning strike in Sunday’s 2-2 draw against United the best goal of his career?

“Yes, I think so,” he smiled. “I was injured, I have come back and this was the best goal. I’m so happy.”

The Brazilian midfielder turned Tom Cleverley inside-out before unleashing a ripper into the top corner from 30 yards.

That made it 2-1 at the Lane but unfortunately our joy was short-lived as Wayne Rooney equalised from the penalty spot and it stayed 2-2 after a thrilling encounter in the Premier League.

Earlier, Kyle Walker blasted home a free-kick for 1-0 on 18 minutes and we had chances for 2-0 before Rooney’s first equaliser before half-time.

Sandro’s moment of magic arrived on 54 minutes, levelled three minutes later.

“It was good to play like that against a team like United,” he added. “Last week against City was so disappointing for us, we felt so bad.

“We played better in this game, now I think this week will be better and I hope we win the next game at Fulham.”

We travel to Craven Cottage on Wednesday for an 8pm kick-off in the Premier League.
