Watched the game. Didn’t think he should have been allowed to play on. Was obviously knocked out cold for a few seconds

I saw a replay of the incident I guess you have to put faith in the doctors as their are clear protocols on these sort of things now if you are knocked out you are subbed off it's not yours or the managers decision so he must have been awake when they came on to the pitch.

He did an interview after the game so might have just been one of those looks a lot worse than it actually was he certainly looked like he was out cold when he hit the deck but these things can develop after the event.

I guess technically it makes him a doubt for the Liverpool game because if it turns out he did suffer a concussion then he's ruled out for 7 days from memory?

Man Utd vs Liverpool

Bloody fearless this lad took some big hits from some big lads yesterday and kept coming for more.

So dangerous when there's space to run into on the pitch as well and the final product is very good for someone so young.

If he can keep improving he's going to turn out to be some player.

Maybe Tielemens at Leicester but can't think of to many new signings who've had big impacts at the teams near the top of the league.

Even Tielemens was converting a loan move to a permanent move.

He’s a brave little bugger isn’t he. He doesn’t shirk away from a challenge even if he knows he’s gonna get clattered like with Van Dijk yesterday.

Been so impressed with him and as time goes on I think he’s going to be so so good.

Quality pass for Rashford’s goal.

His awareness on the ball and his ability to pick a cross is getting better and better. You can’t not be impressed with the lad, think he’s looking like an absolute steal at £15m. I thought this year would be a bedding in year with him getting the odd start here and there but he’s developed into one of our most important players.

Give him the pen duties!

Really impressive since signing. Scouting team look to have found a gem here.

wasn't it Giggs who put the club onto him?

I was thinking him for pens too.

Can he take pens?

Penalty takers put themselves forward you shouldn’t just be picking your favourite players do something in training where you can judge the quality of a pen taker and ask the keepers to feedback who has predictable run ups etc then pick the best man for the job.

As for james he was apparently on the scouting list for a while nearly every club was watching him, Utd contacted Giggs and asked for a character reference on the player as he’d worked with him in the national setup when that came back positive they made their move and secured him early.

The club have basically admitted a major problem they had post Fergie was they didn’t have someone who could make a call to someone and find out about a player the on the pitch scouting is in some ways easy the off the pitch stuff is much harder.

Think he’s 2 for 2 in shoot outs (one friendly) since joining the club.

Deserves to be in the mix then but Rashford despite his 2 misses this season is probably still about 6 from 8 so he’s going to be hard to shift.

Was a little disappointed he didn’t step up to take the second the top guys who really back themselves step up again passing the buck for me doesn’t sit well but Utd don’t seem to have a nailed on taker. It seems there are 3 players and they kid of decide amongst themselves who is taking it if they score regularly no one probably notices but when you all keep missing it’s not a good look.

I think he was written off as a pace merchant even before he arrived but he is so much more and he is growing with every game. Another great performance today and think we are well set with him on the right and Rashford on the left. He is looking more and more like the bargain of the summer.
