This should be a good barometer of where our team currently stands. Yes we have injuries and no Ole has not had chance to have a clear out or bring in new Quality players. I expect we will put up the shutters and go for the quick breakaway when it shows itself. Stopping an away goal at all costs. Must stay awake for this one but us old Koala's need our shut eye
Goalkeepers: David de Gea, Sergio Romero, Lee Grant Defenders: Marcos Rojo, Diogo Dalot, Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Ashley Young, Luke Shaw, Victor Lindelof Midfielders: Paul Pogba, Andreas Pereira, Fred, Juan Mata, James Garner, Jesse Lingard, Scott McTominay Forwards: Romelu Lukaku, Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford
Thought the performance was generally ok up until we entered the final third, started the game a bit nervy and on the back foot from which Barca scored. We responded well to going behind, Ole’s system worked pretty well, kept the ball well and Messi away from our box, the midfield as the engine room was very good particularly Fred and McT.
We played with attacking intent but the decision making and quality was lacking, got into good positions then unfortunately the ball fell to Ashley Young....
In some ways similar to the PSG second leg, great effort and determination but this time we unfortunately couldn’t capitalise on the oppositions mistakes. It will be a tough match at the Nou Camp, I can’t see Barca being so poor and passive but its still very much all to play for.
Love McT and what the feck was Alba doing head butting Young in the belly
