Schweeinsteiger has been a total waste for me. He looks knackered after about twenty minutes. And I think Nani offered more than Depay, but I suppose Depay has the potential (to end up being the new Nani).

Would've loved to see Rafael flying into a few of those tackles at Anfield a couple of weeks back.

Getting so quiet in here these days.

Playing well, Everton look like a much better side than their league position. Rashford continues to impress too but, as ever, we look vulnerable when teams run at us.

edited to add: I HATE the way they play Glory Glory Man Utd at half time if we're winning or, worse, if we're DRAWING.

There aren't too many things that stop me watching the football - but the T20 Final is doing that today!

If we can a win, then we have a decent run and can get 4th. But at no point have we put a run together.

Pretty uninteresting performances from both teams today

...Valencia coming on, forgot he was still in the squad

Valencia looks finished. Martial brilliant, but often wasteful in possesion.,

Valencia was finished 3 years ago. He's so pathetic. Its a shame we are so short of defenders, he should be nowhere near the squad. Needs to leave.

I thought LVGs assessment that we robbed Everton was a bit strange. Could have gone either way, but didn't really see much from them, bar a couple of corners. Perhaps someone has told him to stop saying we played well when we clearly didn't.

Not strange assessment at all just down to a pure lucky goal.

Except that it wasn't, it was well worked and well finished.

United had more possession, more shots and more shots on target, so how anyone, including LVG could say they were lucky, I don't know.

Completly agree. Standard 1-0 win.
