Champions League, Group A
Might need to edit my line up prediction for a 3rd timeCarrick, Fellaini and Jones are unavailable.
I would agree with that. Although his 6 foot 2 he is lean compared to other center backs in the league. Maybe its because he has spend some of his career as a right back and has needed that pace and agility instead of bulk and muscle? Either way his got the frame because of his natural size and probably needs 6 months in a gym working on his physicality. Which is fine because we do have cover. I still think his going to come good because like you say he reads the game well and can bring out the ball like modern day defenders need to be able to do. But the only way his gonna learn the united way as such, is being thrown in there and doing it. It's just about picking the right moments. So yeah your right Liverpool, Chelsea, City no. But easier matches like the league cup and the Arsenal fixtures yes!Yeah regarding Lindelof, I was expecting him to slot right in next to Bailly but he just looks so small and weak for a CB it's quite scary, obviously he is good at bringing the ball out from the back and assuming he has qualities in reading the game etc. but he definitely needs to work on his build, toughness, and having that commanding presence the premier league demands, at the moment the thought of Lindelof lining up for us at Anfield, City or Chelsea worries me! Hopefully Jones/Smalling/Bailly stay fit and then Rojo is back maybe in December so we should be ok.
