    Pogba was sensational. Martial fantastic goal. I thought Lukaku had some decent moments. Mata good in the 2nd half. Phil Jones impressed though his attempt to clear a dangerous cross simply handed Babel a huge chance to score. Smalling did a decent job against Mitrovic. Shaw and Herrera worked hard. Matic awful first half, better 2nd half. Dalot a bit careless at times.

    First five mins were shambolic but after that we kept their chances to a minimum until we were 3-0 up.

    How do you spend £100 million on players and be as shit as Fulham, though? God, they're awful.

    Every time I watch him, I realise how criminally we've underused him previously.

    Doubt it. I get the impression he'd like a return to Spain at some point.
    He's only 28/29 isn't he, so has plenty of years to do it.

    Poor Jose. He could have done all of this and more. If only old evil old Woodward had backed him in the transfer market!

    If Jose had been allowed to fullfil his vision of purging Martial and Pogba so he could sign Willian and some other 30 year old Chelsea/Porto castoff then today's result might have been even better

    Alas...

    They were talking about that after the game. Jamie Redknapp was laughing because Ian Rush did exactly the same thing when Jamie scored his first goal for Liverpool when Rush was in a good position right in front of goal. It is a striker reaction.

    If United were only 8 or 9 points off the top spot I'd say there was a very slim, outside chance of winning the League, as it is, 3rd place is the realistic target.

    Need to say that despite the result and ease with which we won, I'm slightly worried that both Lukaku and Sanchez were both extremely average against what was the worst team we've seen this season.

    There are still some people who "reserve judgment" until we have played stronger opposition - it's starting to get difficult as we now have played half the teams in the division

    Sanchez was actually really good once he came on - should have scored yes but played really well and created a lot

    Really good professional performance from the lads today. Felt they did what they needed to do without pushing themselves too hard.

    Fortunately, we were able to get two goals in the first half and were able to take the second half quite easy.

    Apart from Fulham's early chance, they never really created anything.

    Comfortable win and another three points.

    A good routine win. Easy work in the end. Was bit concerned with line up and it couldve been tougher than anticipated but we handled it well enough. Onwards and upwards.

    Yes. I agree. He is the type of player who needs to play regularly to get his touch right.

    We would all like to see him playing like Rashford or Martial but he is a different type of player.
    Some have written him off but if we get injuries we may have to rely on him. I hope not but that is the reality.

    + Solid performance, the quality of the goals, good mentality, DDG standing up vs Mitrovic.
    - Still a lack of composure on the ball, especially when trying to keep possession and clearances, albeit improved. Smalling’s hairdo.

    Absolutely not.

    It was great to see them just take the piss. We've not had that since RVP and then Ronaldo (and Rooney to a degree) before then. Between them and Rashford we've got something seriously special brewing. Feels a little bit like the end of 2005/06 towards 2006/07 when Rooney and Ronaldo clicked and we went up a gear.

    Just need Martial to take the selfish option a bit more but still retain that eye for sliding a pass through a small space after he's ran at people and he'll be unstoppable. He's already very, very good.

    That is when Pogba is at his best. His touch is brilliant for a big player and his spacial awareness is excellent.

    Now we need to see how they perform at the top level against PSG. Actually looking forward to it.

    That's the sharpest I have seen him since joining United, I hope that is what is still to come. Should have scored, but overall his play was much better, let's hope he can look as sharp if he gets the chance against the bigger teams.

    Mourinho actually convinced Ander that he needs to play like a shithouse. He's got great technical ability not just a great engine.

    I thought Dalot was very impressive today, more so going forwards than defending, and did make some poor defensive choices at times but he was composed, good work rate, very willing to go forward and provide support as well as just take a man on, great hope for him moving forwards.

    I'm surprised Lukaku has scored so lowly, Martial scored a great goal but what many may have lost in the way it developed was that it was Lukaku's run that took defenders away and opened the space for Martial to attack. He did a solid job today did big Rom.

    First 10 mins they were on top but once we got a foothold of the game, there was only going to be one winner. Pogba and Martial were terrific and Herrera again, put in a hell of a shift in the midfield. Jones had his best game in a very long time as he was immense at the back and almost scored a great goal!

    2nd half we just controlled it professionally to get the job done and into the top 4.

    Fantastic result and performance! Bring on PSG!!!

    Yeah, I thought dalot showed some good moments today, still raw but hopefully will keep improving. Shaw was very good on the other side, he should drive forward more often like today , he has the pace and strength.

    Fulham were shite. We did what we had to do, and it was a pretty boring 2nd half because Fulham had nothing.
    Good goals. PSG next. Cant wait!
