A few positives from the game.

Good to see De Gea has his Spain performances behind him, has gone back to being Superman for Man United.

Bailly was fantastic, made some super last ditch defending and really shut them down. We NEED him to stay fit. Our best CB.

Shaw was fantastic, it looks like he's trying to redeem himself; hope his good start continues for a longer period than the last time out.

Pereira had a good game, not over the moon but a decent performance from him.

Fred had a good competitive first game for us. A few mistakes but that we can overlook at this stage.

Pogba was head and shoulders above the others, in my eyes he enjoyed the added responsibility and was trying to transition from midfield to attack. Didn't look unhappy as the media claim him to be.

The front three - Not anything positive to say about them, Rashford was isolated upfront and couldn't to much on his own. Sanchez was playing as if he had a blindfold on. Couldn't pass, run, cross, got everything wrong. Finally Mata - Nice guy but not a winger. No pace at all and completely lacked the final ball on the night. Every time we were able to get him on the counter he chose to pass back to either Fred or Pogba.

All in all a positive first result as it's all about the points from here on. I don't think we'll outplay many teams this season.

I can only hope things carry on as they are.

Mata's final ball was ok for Shaw and Sanchez made our goal and two of our clearest chances. It's those moments he is in for. Can he do better - yes but if he's making at least one clear cut chance per game (like Lukakus) then I'll be happy.

But Pogba didn't dance after the goal.

I thought Sanchez did ok too.

A few good passes, worked hard, set up a goal.

Can he do better, probably.

Will he do better, probably

All in all a good win.

Defence looked shaky at times, but I think Bailly and Lindelof will make a good pairing.

De Gea made some great saves.

Midfield was ok, Fred played quite well. Andreas looked good and Pogba at times was imperious.

Mata is too slow, Rashford looked tired.

Shaw, man of the match for me. I hope he can carry on last night's form and he reach his true potential. It was good to see him bombing up and down the line.

Overall, happy with the result, although my expectations were quite low.

Their goal was a bit of a calamity though.
