Mee was in a good recovery position, so it might not have been red card worthy.

Good to see that they aren't letting Rugby antics creep into the game. Chainsaw for anyone who uses an arm.

Mee was never recovering. If Cavani isnt taken out, its 2v1 vs the keeper.

Also, cleanest header Maguire will ever hit. The fact he only put hands on Peters AFTER he head it says a lot about the shit officials.

They’ve been dogshit ffs. I appreciate their shithouse ways but it’s hardly been “better” football.

Martial doing his best to take us out of the title challenge, but a much improved performance in the second half generally. Pogba very good, Matic very good, Maguire and Bailly very good. 

Scraping wins in this and the Wolves game are a good measure of progress.  Our one sided attack is limiting, with the right recruitment we could be so much better.

Mee is on the scene when Brady is coming together with Cavani. Cavani would have skied it anyway. 

Watch it again. Hand is on him much earlier. Win your header cleanly like a good lad next time. Hopefully they stamp down on it, as the league is littered with cunts doing it. Smalling used to get away with that sort of thing more than he got caught. Maybe Harry can phone him up and ask for tips

He needs to change his technique. 9 times out of 10 he gets pulled up for climbing on defenders and it's got to the point where even less blatant ones will go against him because of his reputation for using his arms.

Don't think you can baulk at beating Burnley. Whatever qualities they make lack it's always a difficult game and you have to stand up to a physical challenge, which we did.  Aside from the final minutes when they pushed for the equaliser, we never looked like conceding.

We have a few players who aren't in great form atm but overall we're in good form and in a strong position, as unexpected as it may be.

Disagree.

City, a more technical side than us, have no trouble beating them when they meet. They don't get bullied by them, despite having less physical players.

They've scored 40 goals against Burnley in their last 12 meetings. 11 wins, 1 draw.

We didn't play Stoke 2008/2009 last night.

3 points. Average performance. Job done.
