City 4 up and top of the league! They’ll get another 4 at this rate

They are flying but West Brom are a poor side.

They have been playing at a very high level now for 3 years so it was kind to catch up. I’d say Son and Kane can’t wait to get a go at that defence.

Always good to beat them no matter what the circumstances. Cavani is a class act. Works hard.

Would fear for Burnley. 5 0 to the pool. Origi to score hat trick

Good to see a win where Bruno is not the stand out performer. Others standing up and taking responsibility.

Would imagine Matic, Cavani, Bailly & Telles will start on Wednesday. Ole mustn't think too much of VDB, you'd think a player of his calibre would be a definite starter against a team in the bottom 3 but I'm not expecting him to start.

Getting back to Fernandes its clear United have an issue against the so called top 6, 1 goal from a pen against them this season shows there's a a team issue. I watched Neville talk last night about how Liverpool & City are constantly inching up the pitch when their opponents have the ball which is something United don't do, United just don't have enough possession in good areas to break these teams down.

I'm dubious whether United will have time to work on it training given the hectic schedule so think its likely we'll see a few more 0-0 in big games before the end of the season.

Win all the other games and keep the league opposition games to 0-0 will work for me!  ;D

Could see why yesterday given how high up the pitch Liverpool play but his from is worrying.

Shaw is improving going forward, it was his cross for Maguire's disallowed goal and also for Fernandes chance yesterday. He has good dribbling ability so would like to see more of it, Fred and McTominay been braver on the ball in these types of games will help Shaw too.

Fred, Bailly, Shaw & Lindelof have been hammered by fans so Ole deserves plenty of credit for the way he's managing to get performances out of them, whether United will win a league under Ole I don't know and still have a few doubts but he deserves more credit then he's getting for the way he's managed to turn it round so far, there's still a long way to go but United certainly don't look as brittle as they did. Since Fernandes came in United have 69 points from 32 league games whilst it was 42 from the previous 32 league games; Thats some improvement.

I could be wrong but I think I read that since he came in a year ago Utd have scored more points than any other team in the league?

This CV is getting out of control lads. I think the FA should show some leadership and call it a day on the league. Just award it to the current leaders and start afresh in September.

After getting defeated by Southampton Klopp has a moan about the number of penalties Utd get. Lol.

I see Darren Fletcher has officially joined the first team management team. Good addition. Was always an intelligent midfielder so hopefully he can pass that on. The likes of Fred should benefit greatly.

I probably wouldn't notice someone being out of position unless it was really egregious (what's the keeper doing over by the corner flag?), but Pat'sabu's comment is consistent with my impression of Wan-Bissaka from the 5 or 6 games I've seen him in.

In terms of tackling and being a pure defensive FB he is pretty good but he offers very little going forward. Physically he is a very good player but I don’t think he is the smartest footballer. The sort of player who will do A repeatedly until you tell him to do B.

Big win for United and certainly they must be favourites for the title now given the injuries in Anfield. The game in a few weeks will really be the ‘momentum’ game

I know you jest about the favourite tag but all joking aside City are in a good position. If they win there 2 games at hand they are only a point behind Liverpool and Utd. All to play for.

Villa are a good side that play exciting football. Grealish is a brilliant player.

3 match suspension for Cavani. Only misses one league match though so not too bad. Given the context it is all a bit OTT.

Was always a strong possibility with Big Sam. Hard not to enjoy him.
