Yeah lack of pace there unfortunately. I also think if we're going to have Memphis cutting in on the left, we need someone hitting the byline on the right or Darmian (and Shaw) need to improve their final ball.
Odd game to watch. Depressing that we can't score but considering the lack of shots and chances created in the opening two games, it was refreshing to see us peppering the Newcastle box and goal today. Still, worried by our lack of penetration. Definitely need some pace up top.
Don't think he's been brilliant for us but similarly to Rooney of a few seasons ago who was similarly hit or miss in terms of performance, you can't knock his goal contribution whether it be goals or assists. Been involved directly in 27 goals since he signed, more than anyone else. Prefer him on this right side in this system. Think he'd be better centrally in a more fluid side.
Manchester United 2-1 Wolfsburg - 30th September 2015
Been pretty brilliant since that PSV game. Possibly his best game for us tonight. Beautiful assist tonight. Another thing that's gone unnoticed is how often he comes out on top for us in distance covered stats.
I forget how much he cost and he really flatters to deceive most of the time. I always used to think he'll be way better in the middle but he's been pretty useless there and he's even worse without Ander.
Somebody should get him on a decent strength and conditioning program, his weakness and acceleration are pitiful.
Just looking at the stats. Hasn't scored from open play since September and hasn't assisted since then either. His contribution at the start of the season was good. Horribly out of form, change needed.
