Good game that especially for a United scouse game .
Back 4 excellent today get a lot of stick for some reason but we don't conced many.
Backed up very well by a proper cm performance from mc Tom and matic . very impressed with mc Tom for a number of reasons today .
But we looked solid . Great player pogba but in the epl you can't carry a player in cm . Got a challenge on his hands now might be what he needs. Give him a bit of a kick .
Rash showed what he can do and lukaku is a big part of how we play .

Good team performance today, never going to be one way traffic against the scouse good team, good attacking team but that was a good team performance from United.

Agree Jred - in addition thought the organisation of midfield and defense proved pivotal- been raving about mctominay for a while showing great promise . Rashfords finishing with Lukakus aerial threat and general play a good sign. Sanchez still not hitting the dizzy heights expected but hopefully he will and he didn't give the ball away as much today.

10 Mar 2018 14:52:43
Rashford very good, it has probably done him good to sit on the bench as he was very clinical today usually he just boots the ball from anywherr and evrerywhere.

Mctoimnay had a better game today but sont think he wouldve played had Pogba been available.

Sanchez looks like he was trying too much again but he certainly had one of his better games.

Smalling doesn't fill me with confidence.

Young played well defensively and that is the reason he is keeping out Shaw because of his discipline.

Valencia had a good game.

Matic was a beast in the middle.

Lukaku is becoming a fan favourite he really is learning a lot of other attributes suchh as holding the ball up and passing it to team mates.

Id also say Mata played well he does evrything really well but doesn't get noticed, he shouldve really scored that goal but i don't think he knew he was that open with the ball.

All in all very good game, Liverpool couldve easily drew the game had they got the penalty decisions their way and Van Dijk scored his header.

10 Mar 2018 14:59:05
I thought Sanchez was the only real disappointment today.

10 Mar 2018 14:59:34
There were no penalties Singh, if those are called penalty worthy fouls then we will have 5 pens every game.

{Ed004's Note - Exaclty, and the only reason they 'are' penalties is because the abu media will highlight them at every opportunity}

10 Mar 2018 15:01:49
Gets a lot of stick smalling but I don't think he does a lot wrong .
He has a few faults as do an awful lot of cbs .
But good in the air good in the tackle.

10 Mar 2018 15:11:01
Agreed guys its soft but it couldve been given and our defenders need to be careful because if they do that against Sevilla then we could be done for the season.

10 Mar 2018 15:18:11
Smalling did well today but he is a liability. His distribution is atrocious and it gets us in trouble as the team has to play deeper to compensate. Bailly is our only to notch defender and we're blessed with the top goalkeeper in the game. If we're to challenge for the league we need at least another top CB and LB.

10 Mar 2018 15:18:14
I thought Matic was poor with his distribution. He got tackled quite abit by keeping on the ball too long.
He did play well and made some important interceptions.
If Mata has scored, that would have been game over.

10 Mar 2018 15:18:59
Great win, Big 3 points.

10 Mar 2018 15:25:14
I really enjoyed Lukaku’s performance. He is growing into a very complete footballer and leader. It was great to see a younger player and in his debut season shouting at and directing his teammates.

10 Mar 2018 15:30:55
Smalling is not there for his distribution. Neither was vidic .
He is there to win the ball and he does that well . Not pretty but it is effective.

10 Mar 2018 15:26:46
Sorry Singh but other than young one others couldn't even be called soft, what is Valencia supposed to do cut his hands off to play football because that's the only way he makes sure the ball doesn't hit his hand, the fellaini foul was on fellaini not by fellaini, he gets there first and holds off mane, if that's a foul then football will have to be a non touch sport. Even the young holding Salah was brilliantly done, he holds him off but the hand holding Salah is the side which ref can't see.

Ed004 it's really funny seeing sourness go all salty, poor guy wants his beloved Liverpool to be given all 3 points because they had more possession. Also apparently they should have had 5 pens with plays like Bailly marshalling milner out of our box being stone wall pen.

{Ed004's Note - The only decision I think we got fortunate on today was Valencias booking but that couldve went either way. The referee was very lenient with cards because there was more than one occasion the likes of Lovren etc shouldve gotten bookings. Also if Jose had acted like Klopp he would have been watching from the stands}

10 Mar 2018 15:56:01
Jred if you think defenders are exempt from being able to pass the ball then we obviously see the game very differently. I can support Smalling for the effort he puts in but I'm making a point about why we're so poor in possession and have to ride our luck a bit in games like this.

10 Mar 2018 16:14:56
ED004 I was sat with my Dad and said the same thing. Lovren got away with two tackles in the sixes of 10 seconds.
Arnold should have had a yellow as well and Can.

{Ed004's Note - But that doesn't fit the narrative of the referee favouring united so it won't be mentioned}

10 Mar 2018 17:04:16
I don't think that's smalling role in the team, and don't think we are poor in possession due to smalling .
He has been going about his job well of late imo .
Lindelof is a good passer of the ball it was no surprise smalling got the nod today .
I thought smalling played well today, had some very good games of late .

10 Mar 2018 17:22:29
I don't want to pick on Smalling but there's an obvious correlation between being poor in possession and having players that are poor in possession! We have very clear deficiencies and having too many players that are not comfortable in the ball is, perhaps, the most glaring. We won't challenge for the league unless that is addressed.

Ok pal .
