Result wise, fantastic. A real sweet win in what should be a real confidence and momentum builder.
Performance wise, we’ll take a few tonkings this season no question but if we are serious about the future we must stick by the young players.
Everything broke our way today and we played well. Defensively we look perfect but after that there is serious worries. None of the front three will score 25 goals. However, Lingard impressed me. Thought Rashford was the sloppiest of the three but his goals masked it.
Felt McTominay was a man mountain and did the simple things so well. A massive upgrade on Matic. Maguire and AWB were brilliant and delighted for James.....looked like he really enjoyed that goal even if he made a balls of the chance initially and got a huge slice of luck.
Anyway, welcome to Backistan, population United.
