    There's one obvious game I want to catch , but other than that, I'm not in love with the other matchups.

    Maybe Arsenal vs Watford?

    Arsenal/Watford and Liverpool/Chelsea are the games to watch I think. Really interested to see how the game against Chelsea goes with both teams at full strength. Expecting:

    Alisson
    TAA - Gomez - van Dijk - Robertson
    Wijnaldum
    Henderson - Keita
    Salah - Firmino - Mane
    That triangle of Gomez/van Dijk/Wijnaldum will be really important to protecting Alisson and giving him the best chance at stopping any shots. I like Henderson but he's not on the same level as Wijnaldum playing as a 6 and he should take up his natural role as an 8; the tactical discipline and intelligence are just on such a different level.

    Arsenal is going to score so many goals tomorrow we're going to scare Elton John straight.

    United might be going with a diamond formation in midfield. Last time Mourinho used one was about 10 years ago.

    Figures, a backheel direction from a cross. McTominay not exactly warranting his starting place with that sort of coverage.

    And of course a deflection makes it 2-0... Probably OG for Lindelöf.

    McTominay, Young, Lindelof, Fellaini and McTominay are all midtable players - that is a big reason why they're struggling. No other club in top 6 fields so many average players as consistently as Utd.

    Young's the only one doing something offensively.

    If you wonder why United are so crap, look no further than Pogba who gave a masterclass in jogging through midfield and playing safety passes. Defensively mostly uninterested unless the opponent showed up in the little mini zone of the pitch he feels responsible for, offensively without any creativity and content to let someone else get the ball into an attacking position. Its bureaucratic football without energy or passion. If thats your ‘superstar’ you arent going anywhere.

    This is all Mourinhos fault.

    Kroos would have nailed a few 30 yard passes to the other side of the pitch at least. Which may not sound spectacular but is actually a pretty successful method of unlocking a defence.

    Long passes are actually something Pogba is truly world class at.

    That corner by young was one of the worst I’ve ever seen.
