McTominay, but you probably knew that.Who the feck is Tom?
Playing the big guns for 60 min from the start or playing them for 60 min from the bench. Mathematically, you see no difference. I'm sure there are 3x more of our fans believe that playing all the big guns from the start is the worse idea and they would rather us to rest players. Bruno is in the team to provide the creativity unfortunately he wasn't as great as he normally does today.
No one would have advocated for starting our full strength squad, but even starting Rashford in place of Lingard would give us more attacking impetus playing off Ighalo, Bruno and Mata. That being just one example that you dont just change the whole squad because everyone needs a rest at the same time, for some strange reason. Balance. Speaking of rest, Bruno is being played in to the ground and its showing in his performance.
Up until that goal it wasnt working and there weren't signs that it was.The first 11 picked was winning pre substitutions.
