Our lads don’t really have it do they? Darlow has been screwed for about 10-15 minutes, so take a few shots you idiots! He wouldn’t even be able to dive properly.

It’s like they feel bad for doing it.

If he couldn't move they'd have subbed him. He's in pain but seems functional.

That said, no, football intelligence is not a hallmark of this team. Helps when Mata's playing though.

No surprises that the performance improved when Pogba and VDB came on for James and Fred

Didn’t think we were that good for large parts of the game, but turned the turbo on for the last 15 minutes.

Bruno is a weird player. Diabolical performance but crucial goal contributions.

Rashford won a pen, created two goals, and bagged one.

Mata was great.

Maguire was better than he’s been.

Pogba didn’t put a foot wrong. VDB too.

Great performance. Those are the application levels we need, every game.

Best goal I've seen from us in two years, that Bruno goal.

Very good performance. Fantastic 4 goals to score overall. 2nd goal was a brilliant play.

Hopefully real start of our season and we can finally kick off from here.

The last 10 minutes completely took the edge off how bad that second half was until then. We have to play around the squads strength, 4312 getting our attacking mids involved together.

What an ending! I'm glad Maguire and Wan Bissaka got their goals. Great for the confidence.

Pretty dodgy game but important win

Much needed win, and a surprising scoreline in the end. Hopefully onwards and upwards from here.

Can we please get VDB starting matches. Fred and McT aren't constructive enough as a pairing to do anything really.

Here to defend McT

Also.. shit start.. controlled it after that.. deserved the win..

De Gea save was incredible at a crucial time.

I like VDB.. should get more minutes.

Mata is a beautiful human person.

Scoreline actually reflects the game, we were on top of them all day and would've been a travesty if we didn't get all 3 points

who would have thought that as the quality of our players on the pitch went up we played a lot better.

Fred and James should hopefully be squad options only going forward..

Neither do you, to be fair.

Probably the only team in the league who play so timidly and give you such time on the ball. Which is why the initial tactics made little sense.

Good result in the end, though.

Juan Mata definitely has a part to play in games like this.

No worries
It took a while, but the result was deserved. We were much the much better team, and much better than we've been at any point this season so far.

Fred and McTominay's energy in midfield set the tone for the performance and some lovely attacking combinations all through the game. Nice win.

Thought we played really well at times. Really grew in confidence. Hopefully we can kick on from here. Great result

All we needed tonight was the three points. To come back from 1-0 down after the early sucker punch, particularly after what happened in the last game, showed character. Very happy to run out winners in the end.

Little evidence tonight that the United dressing room has turned on Ole, despite what some in the media would have you believe.
