    Needs to be better than what he gives, especially with this system and our current squad. If he had a better delivery, this game could already be over.

    We really need to more effective when breaking down teams like this, it's going to be like this at home all season. Hope we bring in a Left back at least, Blind doesn't look comfortable on the left when it comes to attack.

    That's the nature of being a fan though isn't it? I'm always concerned lol. This has been an excellent performance so far. We have to keep going, keep the intensity up.

    One thing Martial need to do is stay a little wider IMO, to stretch the play, and make more runs in behind. Rashford does that well. Not a slight on Anthony but I feel we miss that direct running behind. Last two games Rashfords average position was higher than Lukaku's. It pulls the defenders apart and creates more space for Romelu and Mkhitaryan.

    Crossing and dribbling, absolutely yes. Carvajal and Marcelo are not the best defenders. But they have masive impact in the games because they can take players on and put good balls in the box.

    I'd get Fellaini or Herrera on for Mata. We're much better and free scoring in a 4-3-3.

    The 4-2-3-1 is just a bit too rigid for me.

    One half where we haven't scored but are actually playing really well and people are already have the doom and gloom. The pre-match optimism lasted long :rolleyes:

    Don't see us not scoring. We've had a few decent chances, just need Lukaku and Pogba to find Schmeichel's far corner and he won't save it.

    We're dominating. Bailly and Jones are commanding. Rashford maybe off the bench to open things up, and drive into the box. Blind and Valencia need to add more. Matic can probably gamble here and there too.

    You should learn how to behave in a forum. No need to attack a fellow poster and man united supporter in a match day thread. We're both striving towards the same goal ffs.

    As good as Mata has been, Id put Rashford in for him come 65mins and then if we get a goal or 2 we can get Herrera in or Fellaini as expected from Jose.

    I know its easier said than done but with the way we play, 2 worldclass fullbacks would make us such a dominant team, it would be that missing link to our style.

    That's just crazy after these three games, really.

    Fellaini could be an option, an attacking one, actually, if this doesn't move forward.

    This is exactly what he needs to do. The way Leicester play and are playing right now does not allow for intricate one-two football. They are packing the area and just in front of the Penalty D and are leaving him space to shoot centrally. They are playing with fire and are hedging their bets he won't score.

    Now, after HT, we going to score 3 goals in 10 minutes. Rampant. Go Go Go. Or I will start biting my nails.

    Martial has created more chances than anyone else on the pitch.

    Lukaku wasted it there. Not trying to be a smart ass but I believe Rooney would have turned that chance into something better.

    Blind and Martial are not a good combo on the left. Martial keeps cutting inside leaving acres of space for Blind but he hasn't got the pace or crossing ability to take advantage.
