Odd subs today. I was surprised both Mata and van Persie completed the game. Januzaj should have replaced Mata and I thought Fellaini was going to replace Mata when he was introduced. I assume Falcao's fitness is the reason why he was replaced instead of van Persie.
Seemed to me like he just wanted to give player's game time and it was pre-planned, bit risky with the game still in the balance though. Blackett for Shaw was forced. I'd imagine it was pre-planned that Falcao would only play 75 mins, surprised to see Wilson come on though, thought maybe Fletch would come on to protect the lead. Perhaps pre-planned to give Fellaini some game time too, taking Valencia off was another surprise though.
Playing a top form Januzaj at left wing back would be baffling let alone today. Perhaps we are just trying to look after Falcao at the moment as he he's only starting to get back form and has never played through winter I don't think.
I'm not surprised Falcao went off, could have called that one before the game. He was playing really well though and i'd have liked to seen him kept on because of this. Shaw also was not surprising, as has been said, would have been better to move Young across and played a more natural player on the right. Can only assume he didn't because a) he wanted a more attacking player/left footer on in Januzaj and/or b) wanted to make like for like sub and didn't want to move Young over to the left.
Not good subs but I think the right subs would have been made but for injury problems/fitness reasons.
Shaw was right call, looked off the pace after injury. Herrera wasn't good either but i'd have kept him on and given him a chance to improve. Blind should have moved to LB and Carrick should have come on for Shaw and replaced Blind in midfield. Allowing us to keep Rojo at LCB. I didn't have any problem with Januzaj coming on over Falcao by the way, some seemed to.
