That game yesterday reminded me a little if the Newcastle came game we won 1nil.
Newcastle battered us but schmiechel played like a goal keeping god. Cantona scored in a 1 nil win.
Yesterday we did create more chances and the speed of our play was very good on the break.
Neither martial nor lukaku scored but both played well and contributed a lot.
Lindelof smalling and rojo all defended well throwing their body on the line. Both full backs / wing backs contributed in the final third and defended well. Matic often our only cm with pogba running channels and pressing high was fantastic doing the defending of 2 men. And pogba Berri influential and while i think it was a red there was no intent to injure just bad timing imo.
Jessie running wild covering every blade of grass covering and pressing making runs to be an option super game from him.
As the stats show we were poor in possession but the will to win can carry you a long way and jose has the players working really hard to win by any means and that bodes well.

Everyone did their bit yesterday. But I got to say, lukaku, for the big lump that he is, has to have the worst timing in terms of jumping for a header. He is incredibly bad at trying to win a header. Haha.

Lukaku has been excellent this season, but there are two key areas he needs to work on.

His hold up play has been very inconsistent. For someone so powerful he is simply not aggressive enough. He should watch some tapes of Drogba - he would dominate any two centre halves in the league and I really think Lukaku is capable of the same.

He is also far to static in the box. Too many times he gets to around the penalty spot and then stands still and watches. He is our 9 and majority of the time needs to be making either front or far post runs. Jesse's movement for the third goal springs to mind. Lukaku would have stood still around the pen spot, Jesse attacked the space at the back post and had a tap in.

I still think he has added a huge amount to our first team, he has so much further to grow.
