    Remember against stoke under Moyes. Comfortable game all game and they got one back. Late on In The game he’s running the length of the pitch to stop a certain goal rolling in. Love him since then.

    He's cost us goals and quite often gets caught out not tracking his runners or just simply out of position.

    His positives are big as well though. He's a model professional, he does often get interceptions (albeit some of those are caused by him chasing back after being out of position) as you say and he chips in with assists and goals occasionally. He cares about the club and he gets us and he's been nothing but an asset to the team since he joined really, which is more than I thought he would be when he signed.

    It's clear most teams attack us down that flank as he's the weakest part of that back 4.

    Played well again. Surprised he's so fit and able to play so often without picking up a few knocks, accumulated fatigue etc.

    Looking over my shoulder.
    Looks to be as fit as he's ever been.looks agile and never tires. He is very poor positionally in defense though.

    Amazing cross for Rashford!

    Young was very good today. Of course, this'll be overshadowed because we lost and he'll be a scapegoat like he always is but yeah.

    He did well once we went to the back three. He adapted well to that. Surprised we didnt get the ball more to him in the second half so he could put some crosses in once we had 4 strikers on the pitch.

    He was decent today but he is clearly being targeted now with overlapping runs and through balls. Partly its our lack of a right wing and partly his poor defensive positioning, but teams rarely bother going for our left flank.

    I have still the same feelings about Young. He is NOT a defender and we need to get a proper defender for this position or start Dalot there.

    Thought he played alright. Not great but not bad.
