Replacing Smalling is the first priority, his lack of ability on the ball causes United so many problems. He's incapable of heading the ball to a team mate either, the amount of times he gives the ball away is unforgivable; I think Lindelof gave the ball away once needlessly the other night and that was because Smalling passed him the ball when he shouldn't off.

Lukaku was good last season and there were signs his work rate had improved as the season went on but this year he's been shocking as has his work rate. He looks overweight too, just hope he's not brought back into the starting 11 when fit. Just heard on the radio now he's back in training.

I don't think centre forward is a prority though with Rashford & Sanchez capable of playing up front alone. A centre half and right winger are we're short and we still lack a centre mid who's a superb passer of the ball. Angel Gomes is 18 now although he's still very small, would like to think he'll be in the first team squad next season.

Not a Utd player. Lazy, no game intelligence, no first touch, overweight. The Belgian Cascarino. JM was right when he got rid of him at Chelsea and he should do so again in January.

Did Jose have a memory lapse then??

I have a sneaking suspicion Utd might just get something from the game on Sunday. Mourinho loves these backs to the wall games. I dont expect it to be pretty but they are playing much better now (in patches) and will cause city a few problems. Need big games from the defence/Matic though to try to limit City chances and De Gea might need to be in top form.

A desperation buy. Utd should cut their losses. A terrible footballer whatever about scapegoats he came from Everton and that was probably his level if not even slightly above it. Similar to Christian Benteke who doesn't get in the Palace team.

It was similar buy to what Jose bought at other clubs. His current form doesn't deserve a starting place but if fit Sunday he will be given a start as he's one of Mourinho favorites along with Matic who is also in poor form.

City ahead at half time and good value for it. United have too many slow and static players in their team and the small skillful City players are running rings around them.

Will probably need a set piece to get back into it. Id imagine Mata or Sanchez will be brought on at some stage. Big 2nd half coming!
It's hardly possible to build anything if frustration, bitterness and a mood of helplessness prevail

Jose setting the trap for another smash and grab. He'll laugh and poke Pep in the eye at full-time incensing the 40,000 Arab tourists flown in especially by the owners  ;D

A deserved win for City. Awful defending on all 3 goals conceded hard to believe that United are so poor in defence this season and it will be the main reason for missing out on a top 4 finish.

City a cut above utd in almost every position. By far best team in league. Hope they win it.
