Shaw and martial excellent today.

Agree9 Disagree0

20 Oct 2018 15:40:15
They were pal. Ones signed on hopefully the other follows.

20 Oct 2018 15:59:57
Mata was good aswell. Would people droo Lukaku and play sanchez.
Attimes Lukaku is like a donkey. Slow to turn, but on the other hand at least he has scored wel for us.

20 Oct 2018 16:32:21
I think the way we were pressing from the front today suits an interchangeable front 3 of martial, Sanchez rashford. With mata and pogba linking and playing balls through to that fluid front three could be extremely effective. Lukaku just looks woefully out of form, but worse he looks disinterested. Sanchez deserves an opportunity at cf. we showed today that we can be a very good side. But the energy levels and work rate must be higher.

20 Oct 2018 17:06:32
I though pogba had a good game second half as well, not great defensively but brave enough to get on the ball .

Martial is like Shaw just needs games imo gets a lot of stick on here but he really is a talented lad .
Was playing his best football when we bought Sanchez and dropped him .

20 Oct 2018 17:16:07
The martial goals were so like his first season. Deadly. He placed the ball in exactly the corners. He was very very clinical.

20 Oct 2018 17:16:26
Very good game from Martial, Shaw and Mata today.

I hope these guys carry on from here and let these players play together for a few games.

Lukaku does look out of touch but i would still play with him for now as he is close to scoring a goal very soon.

Really shame about the assitant incident with Mourinho and it will most likely make Mouinho look bad in the press even though it was the Sarris assistant's fault.

Mad Hatter- I would play rashford through the middle dropping RL and try sanchez on the right. If sanchez doesn't work out mata or linguard but RL is playing like emile heskey . loss of confidence but only in a utd shirt?

{Ed025's Note - maybe he has juve on his mind cooky?...if he goes les dennis would say...i will give you the money myself..

Agreed jred. I'm so happy to see them playing to their potential.

The interreaction between jose and marital when being subbed was nice to see too.

20 Oct 2018 17:45:11
And you would play Rashford? A bigger donkey. That guy is a waste of footballing space.

20 Oct 2018 17:51:51
How'd you do in your professional footballing career united addict?

Score many goals against Spain?

20 Oct 2018 18:04:43
I dunno about anyone else but I came away from today gutted that we drew and I would have ripped your arm off for that before the game.

2nd half we were brave and played very well I personally think Chelsea have been the best team in the league this season with the best player and we went toe to toe and should have won.

20 Oct 2018 18:21:25
Agreed deano.

Gutted in the moment but happy overall. The players need to build up their confidence. After today Jose will be ram it home that we are more than capable.

20 Oct 2018 18:25:57
Park - I agree although I thought Lukaku looked better in the second half! I'm not convinced about Rashford on the right either.

I think Martial and Rashford should continue to push each other on the left. I'd give Sanchez a chance up front as I don't think Lukaku is offering us that much at the moment. I think Mata deserves a chance at 10. Can't help thinking we might have wasted a very good player in that position over the years. We've got Lingard that can play at 10 as well. I think we're weak on the right and can't see an obvious solution maybe Pereira or even Chong!

Jred - I agree about Pogba mate. He's brave and courageous on the ball I think we just have to accept that he can fall asleep defensively at times and hope he influences the game enough to cover for his lapses in concentration.

I don't think anyone was expecting us to line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation today. I think it was so Mata could stop Jorginho influencing the game and playing a third deeper midfielder would have give him too much time and space.

Moving forward maybe we should revert to that formation. Thinking back to the start of last season it was a Matic-Pogba axis in midfield with Martial and Rashford pushing each other from the left which had us playing the best football under Jose. The wheels fell off when Pogba got injured and we had a few bad results including City beating us at home. Some consistency in team selection and formation might just help us build some momentum on the back of two very good second half performances. It's going to take a monumental effort just to get into the top 4 and clinging on today would have been a great start. I guess all we can do now is hope for a run of good results and ask some questions of the teams above us!

20 Oct 2018 18:53:25
Yeah Angelred, that one game covers up for more than 3 years of hopelessness. grow up and speak facts not emotions. no matter what you will say, Rashford isn't and will not be a Manchester United level player for me.

20 Oct 2018 19:22:30
We look a better team in 4231 always think we look flat 433.
Sanchez? Really he has been awful since we signed him.

20 Oct 2018 20:10:32
Jred - I agree re 4-2-3-1 and in relation to Sanchez I think he might just give us more mobility and guile up front! Yes he's been very disappointing so far but he looked so sharp playing up front in pre season and perhaps more importantly forged an almost telephonic understanding with Mata. In fact the only good thing about pre season was those two!

If we play 4-2-3-1 and give Mata a chance at 10 we might just stumble onto something really good. Lukaku's had a dip in form, he's not giving us much at the moment so why not give it a try?! If Sanchez is poor bring him off and it might just jolt Lukaku back into action.

20 Oct 2018 21:00:26
Lukaku has been excellent for Belgium.
And has scored more goals for United this season than Sanchez has since he signed .
Lukaku has had a poor couple of games, Sanchez a poor 8 month .

Don't get the love in with big names, Sanchez has been massively detrimental to martial and Rasford . Martial in particular.

20 Oct 2018 21:05:45
He's been there a few seasons now united addict and scored a good few goals so he's doing alright for 'not a united level player' 😂.

20 Oct 2018 23:27:59
United addict seems to have another addiction. Needs to phone Frank.
