    I think he was expecting contact and had already mentally committed to going down when it happened so was already off balance. Then it didn't come and it was too late for him to stay up.

    Great team goal there.

    Didn't realize Martial had that lefty shot in him

    It was a dive, if there was any water instead of grass he would have made little splash with his hands forward like that.

    Yeah, I mean I've seen way more clearer dives than that. He wasn't even asking for a free kick.

    I think if that was his first of the game Moss would have just told him to get up, but he already had one about 10 minutes in where it looked like his foot got caught but clearly Moss didn't think so and waved him up. So as far as the ref was concerned it was his second.

    Ok, I didn't see the first one but that does explain it.

    Fair play to Martial not going down there. Could have easily hit the deck on the pull back.

    Damn, Martial could have gotten a breakaway had he not stepped on the ball.

    This has been much better than last years games against them. When Wolves have countered United have always been in position. Maguire been positioned well a few times and AWB has basically locked down his entire half of the field.

    It was great seeing Martial score that. He would have put that wide or right at the keeper or just lost it in general last season.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Pereira or Mata came on for James after the half and Lingard moved more to the wing.

    In general seems to be clicking well with Rashford. They seem to know what the other is doing or going to much better than before.
     
    Aladyyn and SJSharks39 like this.

    That Sky Sports studio's videoboard is fantastic.

    I also like how fluid they are in terms of positioning. It's definitely not a classic winger/striker relationship and they're almost constantly drifting around and swapping positions.

    TBH James is lucky that wasn't a second yellow.

    Traore looks like a rugby player out there. An absolute unit

    Looked like Lingard was surprised the ball even got to him.

    First contact was more of a foul than Maguire's.

    That was a really nice set piece by Wolves. Inches from it working.

    And this second half has been much more like last years games.

    VAR offside check. It was close.
