It's so easy to get the ball off Fred. He can't handle 2/3 players on him unlike Pog who usually comes out with the ball.

If you add Haaland to this City side, which seems likely to happen, it would go a long way to eliminating any remaining weaknesses. The likes of Jesus and Sterling blow hot and cold, a bit like Martial.

We haven't played counterattack for most of the second half, we've dominated possession
Disturbing isn't it? :-o
We’ve actually had 40% possession this half. But I know that can seem like a lot by our standards against a top side!
Aye, that's good for us and clearly not parking the bus. First half, after the first 20 mins, it was all City like it is now.
What I think it is, is that Ole tries to play like Klopp at times. Higher line, press the other team with jobbing midfielders, then nick the ball to create counterattacks. But it often doesn’t work, and we get forced back more into bus parking mode. This match is showing a bit of both. Maybe because City don’t have a proper forward to get in behind, or their players don’t try to, we can get up the pitch more.

Henderson seems more reassuring a keeper compared to ddg.

It’s odd that the pundits gave us so little chance of winning, given that it’s a derby, and underdog wins are Ole’s speciality, especially after a poor run of results when his job is on the line. I would have put this match at 33% Utd, 33% bore draw, 33% City.

He talks to the defence a lot more than De Gea, which is good cos our dumb CBs often need waking up. Also think this will be his 9th clean sheet for us. Not bad.
