I am a bit concerned about this match. Many of our players looked dead on their feet against Chelsea. Especially Winks and Sissoko who have played pretty much constantly throughout the xmas period. Hopefully we get a couple of early goals to take the wind out of their sails.
I genuinely believe this is the toughest home game of the season, ignore United's league position and all that has gone before because they are flying on their confidence levels right now. I know people will say they haven't had a tough test under the baby faced assasin yet but the tests they've had they have breezed through so make no mistake we are dealing with a different side than we've seen all season.
Don't get me wrong I am not being pessimistic I am trying to face reality, our players will need to be at the top of their game though I see no reason why they wouldn't be, they'll know the reality of the situation and I'm sure they'll rise to the occasion but they'll need top refereeing and they'll need us.
Win this and we will have to come to terms with the fact that we are truly a top top side, I think we can and am very hopeful.
No Bailly, Fellaini, and Sanchez is good news. Worried about Rashford and Martial though, especially vs Trippier.
It’ll be tough tomorrow. Our midfield has been non-existent for the past few games, and vs an inform Pogba, they need to step up.
Poch is aware of this I think, and has been playing a more direct system; hitting balls down the channels and bypassing our central areas. With their defensive issues and our attacking potency, hopefully we’ll get the goals required to secure all three points.
Presumably this was on the train? I’ve always wondered why united travel by train, the richest club in the world, when some clubs fly from London to Cardiff....seems a bit strange? Though flying is probably excessive, you’d just imagine the richest club would take that option?
Think this game will be decided by form of Son, Dele and Eriksen. If they are on it I think we will blow them away. Unfortunately, as good as they are, they do have a tendency to have off games where nothing seems to come off.
