Why not put the article for example in this sentence?

The man of the match

    That is not a complete sentence. Do you have the whole sentence so there's better context? – Mixolydian Feb 11 '19 at 19:00
  • @Mixolydian, I mean, when announces the best player of the match. Usually said without the article. – Boyep Feb 11 '19 at 19:29

With so little context, there's no way to know whether the sentence needs that article. If you said something like "The man of the match is John", then that would require the article. However, one might say "I'll be/win man of the match next time!", and one doesn't need the article then.
