It's alright, we've got a top striker from China coming in

A bit of a dull game and either side could have won but didn't really deserve it. Fernandes looked decent enough for you guys though.

And I'm officially sick of playing you lot now. 6 times in the last year already. If we both progress in the Europa League no doubt we'll draw each other!

He’s got a reasonable record in the PL might be ok for you, especially after watching Martial.

Fernandes looked ok, get someone in front of him who knows where the goal is and life could get better for you!

Pale shadow of previous games between us and Chelsea...both teams looking quite poor. Along with City's problems, Liverpool must be rubbing their hands together in anticipation of the next few campaigns

...currently shading this one 1-0, can't see it lasting.

You're right, it's 0-2!

When he's got the ball, Fernandes genuinely looks like the thing we've been missing.

But it's the hope that kills you, isn't it.

Well, we didn't blow it after all and are now 5th, just 3 behind Chelsea. Luckily for us, we have a couple of easy PL fixtures next with Everton and City

...yeah, Fernandes does look impressive...not sure about his penalty run up though

It'll do for me

He's the best thing we've signed in a long long time. Again, I'm not getting excited because we're so far behind being even 'good' that it's depressing, but it's nice to see a player who is confident on the ball and is happy to take a risk, instead of the hot potato bunch we've had to put up with for the last three years who worry more about their stats than they do their impact.

2-0 so far tonight and Bruno has been the star man, even making Mata (I love him but he's too slow this year) look impressive.

Well, after a horrendous start...WTF was DDG thinking...we're back level. This game is there for us, we're playing pretty well, but Everton are always capable of a goal so difficult to call... ...fingers crossed, squeaky bum etc!

Been decent tonight. Again. United away support incredible.

Just a few rooting for Rooney to score at the end there, I reckon.

We're a better team without Pogba. Tell me I'm wrong.

Maybe not a penalty but there is no way that is a dive from Fred

VAR showing itself up in this game again. This season has been plagued by it.

The history books will probably regard this year as an experiment and scratch it off accordingly
