Big result! Much better second half from us! Pogba’s goal was world class.

In other news Ronaldo scored earlier to take his overall goal tally to 760 goals

He's now the greatest goalscorer in the history of football
I'd take him back. He'll still be good for a few more seasons.
Definitely, as a CF in the box there's no better, he'll bang em in

You predicted the score mate but it was the most hated player of all time who scored the winner.

Ole's away win run is mind blowing tbh, the best in all top 5 leagues

I don't know how we do it really, but another three points, back to the top.

There's a systemic problem that our players obviously don't know what they're supposed to be doing if we're not doing the bus parking + fast counter strategy. They don't know what they're supposed to be doing at different stages of the game. We're dominating possession, we're on the ball, what are we supposed to be doing? Then at the end there, defending a one goal lead, a common scenario. But the defending is so slack. They don't know if they're keeping a high line, sitting deep, or what the plan is.

Thought Shaw was good tonight, as well as Fred.

The fact remains that when Pogba plays in the opposition half, he racks up a lot of goals and assists. Even if he otherwise doesn’t seem to do much, he’ll often make a decisive pass or goal. When he’s sitting deeper of course it’s a different situation.

It’s fair to decide that he’s not good enough to play in a more advanced role, that he doesn’t suit the team’s tactics, or that he’s not worth the bother, but I think in the right team he’d show his quality consistently. People say he’s inconsistent, but that’s not true if you only look at games where he’s playing in a more advanced position.

Martial and Greenwood aren’t offering much this season. It’s great that we’re doing as well as we are despite that.
