    Cool to see Pereira get the start.

    And for all the "Pogba wants out" stuff, he's wearing the armband today.

    Vardy always does so well in games like these. Weird not to start him.

    Apparently he’s not fit for the full 90

    Don’t know why.

    Same reason as Vardy, not in 90 minute form due to the World Cup.

    It's instances like that that should not be a penalty. Completely harmless handling of the ball. Stupid by the Leicester player but it didn't stop a goalscoring opportunity (I know that's not the rule, but it should be). Indirect free kick in the box should be used more often IMO.

    That's a clear handball.

    Goal Pogba!

    I wouldn't hate that rule change. But yea, as written it's a clear pen.

    Although if you're changing that you'd also have to change all fouls to be judgement calls and that's likely opening a huge can of worms.

    Pogba apparently didn't need time on the bench because of WC. He did finish later than Lukaku and Vardy. And he probably celebrated longer too :sarcasm:

    I don't think Fred has started great. Seems slow on the ball and being closed down a lot.

    I know, and I agree it's a pen as the rule is now. My issue is that something like that he was under almost no pressure, the ball was going away from net, and it almost looked like a reflexive twitch off his arm. I expect United will probably win anyway but it seems just against the spirit of the handball rule.

    Giving up bad fouls too. Maybe needs time to adjust.

    An early United goal is probably the worst thing to happen for neutrals..
