    Pogba was finally acting like a captain today, marshaling and organizing the players at several points in the game. Glad to see it. He also spent most of the second half on the left wing. Maybe he watched Scholes' comments, just like the rest of us.

    Lingard's "hush" gesture was done in the direction of the United fans, but was it to avoid a yellow card for doing it at the Everton fans, or was he telling the moaning and whining United fans that have been spreading misery to shut it?

    Pogba's celebration after Lingard's goal cracked me up. He acted like he had scored or helped make it possible.

    Lindelof is a future-captain in the making. He's been much more authoritative in games recently, and he's taken up the vocal aspect as well. If he's got the balls to have a run at de Gea like he did against Everton, then he fears nobody.

    Really liked seeing Pogba stand up for Lingard after the raking tackle he took. As long as he doesn't get carried away like he did against Arsenal, having your captain be the enforcer is a damn good thing.

    It's the 3 man midfield that made us more dominant. We should always play with a 3 man midfield. Adding another Top midfielder like Jorginho or Fabinho instead of Herrera would make us even more dominant.

    Does he feck. And he's being roasted on the shed end because this does not seem to be the first time he's missing chances left and right :lol: look up Martial's shot/goal ratio.

    Before Morata's horror show today:

    Martial numbers are because he isn't being placed into goal scoring positions often. Morata would normally bury those chances he did that at Real and Juve. It was a bad game yes he's missing one on ones but generally finishes good.

    Nah Martial apart from his two games before Everton is a very calm and good finisher. Morata is known to be an erratic finisher even in his Juve days. And I don't watch many Chelsea games so I don't know what he's been up to lately but the shed end posters suggest this is not the first time he's missing guilt edged chances for you and they are making it the fifth one on one he's missed in a row including previous games.
