    Who plays if he’s out?

    Think I’d give Fred a chance. If not McT.

    Ander deepest and Fred in Ander's normal position. Think thats the safest way to get him in

    Has been criticised heavily by our fan-base so will be interesting to see how we perform without him in the side.

    Yeah probably. I think we’ll go the diamond in midfield as well to protect the midfield.

    He was heavily criticised under Jose. I can't think of anyone criticising him since the Liverpool game.

    I think we just want him to be upgraded with better player not being replaced with the current bench players that we have right now.

    He was poor against PSG defensively especially in his failure to mark Kimpembe on his goal, so lets see if someone else can do a good job in his role against the best sides

    He also involved in their 2nd goal.

    It is possible. Especially because this is home game and even in some away games there were cases where players joined later. I think it happened once with Rashford when they travelled to London. I can't remember which opposition it was, but I remember it was London.

    I really hope Matić will be in the team.

    He’s just had a new baby a few weeks ago, he has a family, you just don’t know, he might have needed to be somewhere.

    He wasn’t mentioned as injured in the presser so I reckon he’ll be playing

    That PSG away game will be rough without both Pogba and Matic...

    For all we criticise him at times, losing him for a month is a big problem.

    Not surprising we never let him recover from his surgery after the WC. Then Jose put him straight back in the team with no pre season.

    The only positive to take from it is that it may dictate our summer business in midfield. Matic gets lots of stick, most of it underserved.

    If Fred can't get a start in those circumstances, it's really not looking good for him.

    It's stupid having only one DM at the club. Look at what haplhapp to City when their only DM got injured.

    Game lost.

    I can't post in the match day thread. So I'll put it here.

    Can't believe the amount of negativity about your lineup today. Most of you are beaten before the teams have warmed up. I remember mctominay if that's spelt correct, playing well against us.

    Alot of you need to grow a pair.

    How long he will be out ?
    I don't remember him playing a bad game under Ole.

    Looked off the pace in the first half. A bit better in the 2nd.

    I thought he was really sloppy, far from impressive today.

    Did not cope well with Arsenal pressing, but still covered a lot of ground.

    I suspect he came back too early.

    Can't wait to see the back of him if I'm being honest

    Was back to how he played under Mourinho all season. He did a few good things, but Arsenal seemed to be able to get past him with ease almost the entire match.

    I am a bit worried about him long-term. At Chelsea, he started strongly then declined. When he came here he started strongly, then declined. And then as soon as Ole took over he started strongly again. Now, this one match (when returning from injury) certainly isn't a sign that he's declining again, but he does have previous and I have been half-expecting him to start falling away again in the not too distant future.

    Horrible game to stick him into when he's just come back from injury

    Scott should have played

    Very poor. Looks like we shouldn't have rushed him back to injury and Scott should have kept the position.

    Definitely one of the positions we need to upgrade in the summer.

    His age is showing and he is really really slow. Can read the game well, but can't cope with fast players.

    I don’t rate McT very highly but he’s at least dynamic, Matic moves about like a tractor. This is a must position to be upgraded this summer.

    Looked like the Matic that played for Mourinho today.
    It's the FA cup next, I'd play Scott again and see if he can make the position his own until the summer.

    Matic can bring the ball out of the defence, Mctominay can't / doesn't. Don't know what his physical condition is but he has to come in if he is fit.

    Maybe he's not fully fit but it's not like this is the first time his lack of mobility and pace in midfield have been an issue, his inability to turn in compared to Fred was so noticeable today.
