I know he's just back from injury but I thought Pogba's celebration was a bit much for a tap-in. The protocol for celebrating a tap-in is usually to acknowledge the player who did the hard part in setting it up (rashford). Pogba's celebration would have been fitting for a goal of the month contender.


Don't like the chap but he really did make a difference - which I had been denying was the case for most of his absence. Well I thought it was overstated and possibly still is slightly but the team functioned better (albeit against weak opposition) with him back. His moment of magic for the second goal was crucial in the game. As you noted, his celebration was only matched by the MOTD analysis. Rashford bust a gut to get into the box, sprinting by Pogba en route, and the clown lauded Pogba for getting into the box.....not a word about Rashford.

Great to see Rashford and Martial selected with Lukaku.

Pogba makes a huge difference to United, we didn't see the best of him last season but he started this season in great form and he's been a huge loss. Once he sorts out his defensive deficiency's United will have one of the worlds best players, he just switches off the odd time and fails to track a run which can be worked on.

Going forward though he's capable of scoring a lot more goals but what surprises me most about him is his creativity, he can easily beat a man as we saw on Saturday and has great vision in and around the area for a man of his size. Lets hope he stays fit.

But why was there all the mystery surrounding his fitness and when he was coming back?
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

Considering he came back just after the international break,

Considering he came back just after the international break, I’d hazard a guess it was to keep the French team from picking him and instead allowing him an extra weeks recovery.

Don't expect that United will be too adventurous given they are as good as through.

Liverpool shot the load too early again I see, much like the usual suspects on the board... ;D

Wouldn't be surprised if Mourinho puts out a strong team and then starts moaning about fixture congestion in January.

I've had more success with picking both teams to score lately, or over 2.5 goals.. seems a better bet

United have a big enough squad and players coming back from injury to put out a strong team regardless of maybe wanting to rest a couple. I wouldn't mind seeing McTominey and Axel get a bit of game time.

I can see Young & Valenica being rested but thats about it although Matic has played a lot for United I think he stayed in Manchester during the international break, I'm sure he'll be rested for the next round of the league cup and the final CL game.

Other than them nobody else needs to be rested, Rashford & Martial don't complete the 90 mins too often.
