MOTM performance. Really hope that when Pogba comes back, we have a midfield of MCt, Fred and Pogba
Ah yes, we all remember that game. If he played like that all the time, we would've given him whatever he wanted, and he would've brought out the best of Pogba. I'm actually more confident with Fred as our destroyer, he's built quite solidly, the only issue was his clumsiness which he shook off today and looked assured on the ball. Can't wait to see Pogba back in the side with him in form.Fred has never had a game nearly as good as Herrera did against Conte's Chelsea in 2017
I too think James was outstanding, but Fred was also very very good today. He was more creative than normal.I honestly haven't seen much of Fred today, I was really surprised after the game that he got the man of the match here. I gave him a solid 6, the 7,8 he got surprised me a lot. I actually rated Pereira higher today and that has nothing to do with his fluke goal. I've got to see some highlights to see what I might have missed here.
My vote went to James, a real handful each time he plays.
It’s Pereira who’s going to make way for Pogba.His best performance for his IMO. Motm for me. Hope when Pogba is back that Fred keeps his place.
I'm circling.Took a lot of stick and rightly so at times but I always felt there was a player in there. Joining Utd at our most toxic time was never going to be easy. Said before, he could have disappeared especially what's been said in the media and by previous players but didn't. I know some on here will still refuse to see it but that can only be cause they refuse to admit they are wrong. That said, Fred has to convince people that this is level and more, and not a one off although for me he's been playing well for weeks.
......the vultures will still be circling.
Im hoping when Pogba is back that Ole leaves McTominay and Fred doing the defensive work and tells Pogba to go and get involved higher up the pitch. Give Pogba a free role with the front 3. Thats probably the way to get the best out of Pogba anyway.His best performance for his IMO. Motm for me. Hope when Pogba is back that Fred keeps his place.
