Mourinho said in post match conference that Baillys injury might be long term  :-\

Average performance on an average night.

Average  :D

Ah did ok, Jones, De Gea too maybe Mata. Nothing to write home about. Bournemouth decent had a go might have nicked one.

Glad to hear that. There is a top class player in there somewhere.

Big loss if true the best defender United have IMO. As for tonight i suppose you could say a better result than last season when 10 man Bournemouth grabbed a draw in Old Trafford.

Shaw did ok, thought he was defending wasn't good enough on a couple of ocassion and he certainly has more to offer going forward but he's going in the right direction. I think we'd all prefer to see him playing over Darmian & Blind.

United were poor but this was a game like the Brighton game where we wouldn't have won last season. Surely everyone can see at this stage the difference Pogba makes?

McTominay did reasonably well, I'd much prefer him to start over Herrera; He gained more in confidence as the game went on, he's barely played any football the last 3/4 years because of injuries and his growth spurt but I think we've got a player who'll be around the club for years.

Another wasted year for the youth team, went out to Derby last night apparently very unlucky and were missing Angel Gomes but on paper its a really strong United team and shouldn't have been too far away from winning it.

Yeah I think last night was one of those tick box games especially after the city game at the weekend.

I thought Mata did well again and always performs when called upon.

Agree with MM Pogba is a massive miss from the middle and he seems to bring the other players up a level even with his presence.

Whats the story with Miki? Havent heard any injury concerns (might be wrong) I thought he had done enough to prove himself to JM but it would appear not of late.

Baily big loss for sure, but Jones did have a decent game last night, even if he is a bit rash.

Mkhitaryan not injured according to journo's just well out of favour like this time last year. I reckon he'll be back in the frame for Bristol City next week. He's been a huge disappointment and had little impact this season, I was expecting him to shine this season but he clearly hasn't, he'll probably get another chance to save his United career but I have my doubts whether he has the right mentality to succeed at United.

I can see Blind, Darmian, Herrera, Mata & Mkhitaryan all been sold this summer if replacements are found.

I agree on all except Mata. He should be kept as he is a solid squad player who can do a great job when required.

I probably got carried away suggesting they'd all move on although it depends on whether he brings Ozil in. I'll be very surprised if United dont sign an attacking player with pace who can play in the no 10 role or out wide so that will mean the end for one of Mata or Mkhitaryan and if he brought Ozil in too it would be hard to keep one of them. Fellaini is out of contract too but I can see him staying for another 12 months.
