Martial and Pogba are tearing the Spurs defense right now.
Definitely not Mou's fault.
Pretty good start to the game overall. Chances on both sides.
Spurs with a bit better possession, United look very dangerous on attack/counter.
Interesting to see how free Lindeloff and Jones are to chase Spurs attacker up the field. They’ve both been well inside Spurs half when Son and Kane are tying to do some holdup play.
It’s a high risk high reward type of play.
Winks has like two field goals already.
There goes Sissoko's hammy or groin.
Fantastic ball by Pogba and an even better finish by Rashford.
Not sure why Tripper was so heated about that, Sissoko should stayed off and not cause problems for his team.
That pass was sexual.
Confident Pogba is the best player in the PL.
Rashford! Pogba put those type of balls to him earlier in the season as well but this time he actually finishes.
I don't think he is. Buuutttt if he consistently starts to play like this he could be.
44th minute too. If United can get a second quickly to start the 2nd half they'll be in good shape.
Rashford has been fantastic since Solskjaer took the reigns.
There's a few who are in his class, but he's definitely in the conversation.
The issue so far is he's never played at this level for more than ~10-12 games at a time in the PL.
Yeah basically what I was getting at. He's never had the consistency to be the best player in the league. The potential is there obviously, and I think he's been the best player in the league since Mou left. But again he has to put it together for longer to be the best.
De Gea is goooood
Brilliant cross from Young to Pogba's head but the header went too much to the middle.
maybe the bears can sign him
Neville's comment about why Lukaku and Mata are on the bench due their inability to play fast paced two-way football, was fairly telling. Against a more stagnant team they can shine.
De Gea trying to singlehandedly run down the clock on these goal kicks
Pogba's two faces are beginning to come through... Sloppy/tired play leading to turnovers more and more now.
I don't think United can defend like this for the rest of the game. Too many overlapping runs at the edge of the box and Spurs seem just half a touch away from prime scoring chances.
