One player stood up today and looked the best player on the park. And that was Fred. He was outstanding again, like he has been nearly all season. If we had 11 Freds we wouldn’t be where we are. He works so hard and doesn’t hide. So happy to see him prove his doubters wrong.

Now park i get the sentiments but i think 3 4 or 5 Fred's would be enough for anyone😂😂
But you got to say In terms of energy and effort he would but the Duracell bunny to shame.
Lots to like about fred.

Haha yeh fair point ken 😂. I just love his commitment to the cause. Something we’ve lacked for years. Unfortunately we are severely lacking in quality both in terms of coaching staff and players. Hence why we are seeing what we are seeing.

Best utd player definitely still wouldn't make the liverpool match day squad me thinks.

Some people in particular didn't see a footballer in him at all ken if you recall.

Angel in fairness he was tripe for a while😂😂 opinions change with form.
With rash out now we are really light up front on numbers. Pogba should be fit in a month or so
Its going to be an interesting last week of the window. Top 4 somehow is still achievable. I just don't think ole can lead us there unless he pullss a few rabbits out of the hat before the end of the month.

Fred was quite poor, he made some good tackles and interceptions and worked hard, but he lost possessions all too easy and was unable to feed any quality balls to the forwards. Better of the three midfielders though, but I don't think I've seen a worse midfield for United, I'm not sure Perreira is even Middlesbrough level.

Fred was poor? I must have watched a different game.

What did Fred do? He and Matic were totally overrun in the midfield until late in the second half after Liverpool made their changes. He made a few interceptions and a couple of tackles, but failed to create anything. He made a couple of runs with the ball that led to a shot that lacked both precision and power. The commentators were constantly bemoaning the lack of any pass towards the front three who were creating space and making runs, and Fred and Matic were the culprits there. Fred works hard, but lacks in technical ability, he's very easily dispossessed and misplaces far too many passes. If I'd have to rank Fred in comparison to other United midfielders of recent years, he'd be somewhere in the Fellaini/ Anderson level, although Fellaini could score and assist as well as intercept and tackle, so that comparison maybe isn't fair.

It was dire yesterday, the forwards were starved of service. The tactics of stretching their defence to create space in the middle worked, but Perreira was unable to do anything with the ball. The central defence was shocking, the amount of times Shaw was having to cover for Lindelof and Maguire who were out of caught position just isn't right. Until the midfield is sorted and a strong centre back provided, nothing will really improve.
