Has to start - Really worry that he'll decline over the season and we'll be stuck with his contract.

At his best there is no one better in that role but this is such a wildly different situation to Madrid. There'll be more pressure on him to play with the ball as he doesn't have a Modric or Kroos next to him where he can just keep things simple. 

Love the player but hated the signing.

We just need to make sure we don’t play him 50 times a year this season and next and hopefully we’ll get three good years of about 40 games from him

Probably his worst cameo for us so far. It's a bit odd that he hasn't had a started yet so you do wonder if he wasn't one of Ten Hag's preferred signings.

Hopefully he starts against Sociedad as he needs to start playing more if he's going to fit in.

He put out a few fires tonight, but was very clumsy.

Dangerous free kick to give away.

Poor long range passing when he first came on. Then he fixed up.

He only won 6 out 15 ground duels, committed 4 fouls, and was dribbled past twice.

Still looks well off the pace - the international break should actually do him good he'll play a lot I hope and then we have a rough schedule after the break so hopefully he picks up once he gets a run for us

I think we need to give him games to try to get him up to speed.

Jury is out on whether he's another player that Real knew when to sell at the right time, but he was clearly signed to try to address the issues we've had in DM for a long time and we need to give him the chance to do that.

We've been Schweinsteiger'd!

You just know that him in Antony are in that Brazilian restaurant every night, drinking & eating like Kings after securing that Murtough stimulus package.

ten Hag, on the other hand, cycles around Manchester on his bike wondering why his wife resembles Ronald Koeman.
