    FA Cup: Yeovil Town v Manchester United - 26th January 2018

    Motm according to the Beeb. He played well and thankfully survived the Yeovil pitch and tackles.

    He was decent considering this was his first game and the state of the pitch. Not outstanding imo. But pretty decent.

    I know he gave the ball away abit but he also did things that were class. His got so much composure in and around the box that his going to create or score a lot of goals for us.

    How bitter was Martin Keown by the way? Can see his taken the move Well!

    I think you could see his has genuine quality and there is a lot more to come from him. Keowns commentary, like his football career is simplistic to say the least. His argument for alexis going to city just because they have the best team is laughable. If every decent player adopted that theory city would never have had a good team.

    Was only half watching as we were playing darts down the pub but every time I seen him on the ball, he was back-heeling to create opportunities. A more natural wide player than what we have in terms of being able to create chances as well as score.

    Huddersfield kicked lumps out of him and plenty of what he tried didn’t work but he just kept going and going and got his reward.

    Absolutely relentless winger. 10 dribbles in a game. There's a few out there that criticise Martial for not doing enough and this is where they are probably correct, you want to see Martial dominating like that, capable of beating players with ease but doesn't do it enough. Rashford when on form does. With Sanchez in, you'd think both will see more games on the right or through the middle (where they probably both prefer to be)

    I love to see a work horse and there's no doubt he is one. The guys super talented and his on the cusp at times of doing something special. But he needs to be closer to rom sprinkling that magic about. Don't wanna see him coming deep and playing centre mid. Stay up there Alexis! Stretch sides. Get on roms touches and headers and play closer to the goal please!

    Why didn’t he shoot?

    Did he lose his balance or did he think he had more time?

    He really wasted the best chance of the game today but still played very well buzzing around up top and seems to be finding his place in the team getting used to his new team mates, they are starting to link together.

    Hope Jose sticks with this front 3 and gives them a proper run of games but he probably won’t

    If we stick with 4-2-3-1 then Alexis is the 10/free role guy/shadow striker whatever. Just up top with Rom. Playing off his heavy touch and getting on the end of things.

    Or he goes 4-3-3 and gets someone's else in to release Pogba like we hoped Matic would at the start of the year. We haven't got the player to do that yet. We need someone with more energy then Ander.

    Either way I don't think that Alexis playing on the left is hurting martial. Considering that Martial had that 1 vs 1. That back post header. And was getting into positive positions. But we've got to stick at this now. Don't throw it away because we lost today. This front 3 need to play and learn off each other.
