Thought he was fantastic today. Would have been my MotM if it wasn't for De Gea.
I was just going intelligent but classy sounds better. He just knows how to play the role. Always in the right place. Always making the right decisions. Class.One word to describe Varane, and that's 'classy'.
Doesn't do anything flashy, just does everything with class, positionally is near faultless, solid in the air, brilliant with his feet.
Just an absolute pleasure to have him in this team.
Well that's mainly because even with the odd mistake, there's a feeling of reliability and calmness with Varane, which is quite the opposite of Lindelof.I think he's getting more praised than what he deserves, the goal wasn't his fault but there was another play at the end of the first half when he lost his man and we were lucky not to concede as the shot went over the bar.
He's good but it this was Lindelof there's no way he'll be getting the same praise.
