Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford linked up for a fantastic goal and David de Gea made a couple of outstanding saves as the Red Devils won at Leicester City 1-0 and stayed hot under interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The Swedish centre-half, who initially struggled following his 2017 move from Benfica, looks revitalised under Solskjaer and his composure against Leicester alongside Eric Bailly earned the pair a massively complimentary comparison from Crooks.
The United boss was in the stands to see PSG lose in the league for the first time this season against Lyon on Sunday, and centre-back Thiago Silva said he expects the Norwegian to have come away from the game with a boost in confidence.

"The best way to prepare for the PSG game is to try and win away at Fulham and that's the way I think". "There is a lot of rebuilding to be done, over the next three or four years, so they can compete with Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham for the title".
"Eric Bailly was a nervous wreck away against Brighton earlier in the season and Victor Lindelof wasn't much better - but the pair looked like the superb former Italy defenders Fabio Cannavaro and Alessandro Nesta at their best against a very risky Leicester team".
