Pogba needs to raise his game against the big sides otherwise I'd happily see him dropped for the rest(won't happen mind). Probably will be Fellaini over Carrick and Darmian at left back but we can hope.
I'm going for the same team and a solid 1-0 win I want to see decisiveness by Rashford, Micky on top of his game and Ibra not wasting chances this time. I really liked what we did against Anderlecht - waiting for them to come at us and going for a counter attack and I think this might work against Chelsea as well
Fair play to Jose today, carried on from the FA cup defeat and got the tactics spot on. MOTM Herrera but everyone an excellent 8/9, tight and disciplined. Pleased as fucking punch with that. Just enjoying the moment
Well I wasn't expecting that... Brilliant, brilliant performance
Mourinho schooled Conte and got the tactics spot on today with the players pulling it off to a tee, Lingard and Rashford bamboozled one of the best and most organised defences in the league. Our midfield and defence nullified some top quality attackers, no shots on target for first time in something like a decade. Just excellent all round.
what in tarnation. That was not expected at all, was thinking we would get a drubbing given our recent form. This was really out of nowhere.
Rashford and Herrera where fantastic. Even that donkey Fellaini played well today.
Mourinho got the tactics spot on clearly. Players did their job and the defense was so solid. The defenders needs to keep this up really, and Rashford needs to keep banging them in, if he can do this to Chelsea i'm sure he can do it to anyone. Him and Ibra are going to be critical over the next month or so.
Champions League is still alive but we're going to struggle to get it i think. Look at City's schedule and look at ours, we have Spurs and Arsenal to still play and they have bugger all. (speaking of which, Southampton may just be the worst 9th placed team i've ever seen, they were awful against city). Mind you we haven't lost in ages, but we need to do more than just draw really, we will need to be picking up close to 3 points every game from here, can't rely on city and the scouse to drop points (they will probably but still, better to play well ourselves).
Still, this opens up the title race, Spurs may actually go and do it
