Good result, and a pretty good performance against a dogged Burnley team.

Sunday massive game now, if we somehow manage to win that, could go on a run with nice fixtures coming up.

Its a shame Bailly is made of glass, because he's our best centre half.

Lol since when?
He's shown in the past he loses his man.
Very easily.
Let him play a few games and we'll see.

Very difficult game but we showed massive character!

Will be shitting it now for next week! I’d take a draw right now!

I didn't see the character. We went into Jose mode after scoring today. Not a good sign. I remember Jose complaining about this too.
We need to improve. Some of the old players need to go.

But yeah. We deserved the win obv.

I do hate these dinosaur british managers tbh, the way Dyche just turned the attacking football off until we scored even though they were causing us problems. It was a grim blast from the past.

Also they always fluff their half chances cos they hardly practice shooting, ball control etc it's all shape and 11v11. They blasted loads wide and over the bar today.

I'm not saying he doesn't have a brain fart in him. But he loses his man less than Maguire or Lindelof. His pace is a huge asset and gets us 10 yards further up the pitch. And he puts his body on the line - he's made more more last ditch blocks in his last 2 games than Maguire and Lindelof have all season.

I don't think it'll be a draw. We'll either do them on the break, or more likely, they'll fly into us and demonstrate the mentality that Champions have.

Good performance from Pogba especially. Shows what he is capable of when given freedom to get forward.
