The 29-year-old, who's on loan from Bayern Munich for the rest of the season, has adopted a more advanced role tonight and Man United fans online are loving the positions he's taking up on the pitch.
One Twitter user wrote: "Was really really looking forward to seeing Sabitzer in a midfield with Casemiro. He's much better in advanced positions, really good start this."
A second tweeted: "I'm glad Sabitzer is playing more advanced. He's had a good instinct for goal near around the penalty box ever since his Leipzig days."
A third added: "He's so dangerous in that advanced role."
A fourth said: "Sabitzer in the advanced role is just beautiful to see."
Another commented: "So damn happy for Sabitzer. He is thriving in his natural more advanced role. And Bruno is thriving deeper."
This is Sabitzer's 13th game for the club since arriving in January. He's now scored three goals for the Red Devils, having scored just once for Bayern in the first half of the season.
Should Man United sign Sabitzer on a permanent deal in the summer? Let us know.
