What a beauty, soft first touch, turning, setting up the ball and striking it in all one fluid motion.

To be fair, it would be hard to score goals like this in the premier league because most teams won't give him that much time as they did here. Also, he isn't playing that forward for us.

Still can't believe we got him, let alone for free. As I have said before, he is my favorite player from the current team. Such a professional guy and does the job what is required. Had my doubts about playing deeper for us but the guy is freaking amazing wherever he plays. Put him up top and I am sure he will find space and ghosts between defenders. Love him!

He tried his shot a lot with United this season but didnt pull it of. Yesterday he proved yet again what he's capable of.

No freakin' way. Those are insane stats considering Rooney is England's all time at 53!!!
It almost get's even more impressive, when you consider he had 6 goals in his first 57 games for Denmark, before we changed manager and he really kicked up his performances a notch.

He pretty much dragged us single-handedly to the 2018 World Cup with his goals. 11 goals throughout that qualifying campaign, including a superb hattrick against Ireland in the play-offs. Can't wait to see his first goal for United.

You are certainly right in that being even more impressive!

I've been very happy so far with our summer signings, but Eriksen has really impressed me the most. It will be great seeing him celebrate his first goal as a United player.

His long range shooting style reminds me a bit of Beckham. The way he gets whip, bend and dip on the ball.

You’re joking, right? That happens several times every match. Did you watch the goal? He takes no time turning and taking one touch in a fluid motion before shooting.

The more we win the ball higher up the pitch the harder to put on a quick counter press. The overrating of top football and the PL especially is reaching ridiculous heights. There wasn’t a mistake that made that goal, it was Eriksen’s excellence. Human error is impossible to get rid of.

By a distance our best signing and the profile of player we have been crying out for for the last 10 years.

Defensive errors dont happen in PL? He wasnt given time but the defense was out of shape cause of Šutalo's error.

Fair enough, I just saw a longer clip. The one I had seen earlier began from the moment he received the ball.

Hoping he gets his first goal for United soon!

Makes you wonder why only us and Brentford were in for him. I felt at the time and still now, he's a top top player and wouldn't look out of place in any of the top sides.

Yeah, delighted that everyone else was sleeping. He's the single biggest thing we've missed for about 10 years. A ball playing central midfielder.

What a majestic hat trick that was. Marvellous player and I wanted us to sign him for years, so happy he is plying his trade here now.

Being Irish I hated it and I especially didn't enjoy watching it from the Danish end at Landsdowne. :annoyed:

They then serenaded us to a chorus of 'You're sh*t and you know you are'.

Lovely stuff
