Thought he was very good until he got booked then terrible and wanted to take him off at half time. Luckily Im not in charge of Manchester United :):)

Lovely goal, did he end up as top scorer in Europa League?
No, ex City player had 8 goals.

I watched some of his United highlights earlier. Easy to forget how good he was in mid-season and how good we were as a team for most of the season.

He was great till that injury in Saint-Etienne match in France. After this he never returned as what he was before it. Don't know why.

I'm optimistic he'll be better next season, but he needs to train how to control the ball and not losing it under pressure.

You do realize he has a good control. The pressure is different situation.

Control under pressure is the most important thing. Controlling the ball when no one's pressing you at all isn't a problem, even Rooney can do it, but against teams who play with high pressure your players must either have the ability to pass the ball between them quickly or to control it under pressure well. He's lacking in this aspect so he needs to improve as a forward mush have this attribute or he'll be useless against any team who high press us and easy target for pressure.

He needs better partners than Martial, Lingard and Rashford up front. He did well with Mata and Ibra before their injuries,
