Pretty average first half the goal. Take Rooney off he has done nothing.
Surprised to be top at this stage. Mata is having a fantastic season so far.
Mata really is looking very good, ala Hazard of last season. And the thing is Martial is actually finishing what is being created in the midfield, so its going well at the moment.
Martial looks so good. His hold up play was so good today
Don't think Mata has the individual ability of a Hazard but his output is excellent and he fits in right with the LVG "philosophy".
Been playing every game.
I think when Mata was bought everyone said that he wasn't a great individual player but was someone you needed to put good players around for him to be effective. Now we have proper midfield depth is showing how good he is.
Super defending. Leaving Arsenal's most threatening players in acres of space.
Yeah our lack of depth being exposed here. Youngs having a howler and we have noone to change it
I think the logic from LvG here was probably that he wants his better defending fullback in Darmian marking Alexis. Probably why he didn't opt for Valencia as the RB. Only problem is that Darmian doesn't have much of a clue with Sanchez either and now they can exploit our left flank too
Valencia has a stinker in the week too. I wouldnt be opposed to Jones on for Depay.
Young offers better cover on the wing and Jones on allows Blind to move into lb
Darmian booked now and marking Sanchez for the rest of the game unless he switches flanks when/if Valencia comes on
That should have been 4. This is mad we have no answer
WHAT WAS YOUNG DOING? He looked at Ramsey (at least it looked that way) at least 3 times and refused to get closer to him. Jesus christ.
He was stranded so had to cover Cazorla.
Wouldnt be opposed to Rooney come off to give better coverage in midfield and he looks very short of confidence atm
Getting whacked by Arsenal of all teams.
No-one really performed well at all. Even Dave didn't do anything amazing.
LVG messed up tactically and selection wise basically.
United have been dominant over Arsenal for so long basically sitting back and countering. But today Arsenal out countered United.
I don't think it was really anything to do with selection at all, just a great performance from Arsenal. There was no one on the bench who I feel would have made a big difference for you guys, just one of those freak results IMO.
Schneiderlin should have started this game for the energy he brings (Actually Arsenal are like the perfect opponent for him) and starting Young at fullback wasn't a good move either when you say had a option of Jones,Mcnair or Blind going fullback.
Also at Arsenal away usually United play 3 CM's or push rooney deeper and let Arsenal have the ball in front to hit on the Counter. Which he could have done with Martial/Depay etc..
Actually last season only vs Arsenal the performance was arguably worse in a 3-5-2 but hit on the counter with Di Maria and co. to win at Emirates.
