He's so mad.
Wouldn't 1-2 be around him this evening.
What we saying about Pogba? Spinning the French Mo Farah yet again.
Thought he was still looked a bit short of confidence but grew in the 2nd half. My no.6.
I thought Pogba looked really lost in the first half but that's understandable as Mou explained it in his post match press conference. The team was told to play a new kind of formation that we haven't played in before all season so that explains why we looked a bit lost/poor first half.
Second half Mou changed the formation and we looked much more solid and in control. Pogba was much better second half but one thing that disgusts me about Pogba is if you look at Sanchez, Lingard and Lukaku their working their socks off pressing, fighting for every ball but Pogba was literally strolling and walking around...
At one point towards the end when we were defending the result there was a throw in and Pogba didn't even compete for the ball just watched it happen....he needs to understand what this shirt means. I have to say even though I've doubted Lingard as a first teamer he shows he has the passion it honestly made me so happy and proud to see him fight for every ball and move around being a nuisance and he deserves his goal. Post match Lukaku actually said he told Lingard that everytime he gets the ball on the wing get in the box and i will find you...
Nice to know they are practising and communicating.
Good to see Matic put in good performance. Thought he, Lukaku and Pogba were our standout players.
Thought he went under the radar a bit but Martial was a positive yesterday. First of all Jose started him, on the left, in a massive game. Not his most offensive performance but no doubt he had an eye on fulfilling the defensive duties Jose will have required. Did well to put Sanchez in for what should have been a better quality shot, and got his assist for Lukaku's goal. Although the goal was a bit scrappy I though for a player who at times has risked settling too much in that left wing role of the 4-2-3-1, just like Arsenal and Watford being the games springing to mind he can play well infield as more of a forward.
I really prefer the 4-3-3 and I think it benefits nearly all the players in our team. Although I still do think the 4-2-3-1 has its place especially when we're playing Mata.
Must say as likeable as they are after all these years, our fullback situation is dire. They have never been able to defend properly as converted wingers but even offensively, nothing compared to what Spurs or City are getting out of theirs.
Lindelof with another solid performance. Gonna need his passing against Liverpool.
With Bailly back hopefully them two can get a run together.
