Pre-Match Line-Up Analysis:
WOW. What a line up! So many unexpected changes! Let’s start with the keeper. I can’t be the only one that’s shocked about David De Gea being rested for Romero. I for one am not comfortable with him in goal. He makes me nervous whenever the ball goes near him.
First Half Analysis:
Second Half Analysis:
While on the other end of the pitch Smalling using his strength and awareness to get rid of any danger. Lingard was a constant presence on the left flank, it shows that he’s more comfortable playing there and that LVG needs to play him there more usually in premier league matches so that Lingard can thrive. Periera reminded me of another Carrick in the second half he picked his passes incredibly well and displayed maturity which you would find in the more experienced players.
Blind was good defensively however the problem he has is that he is totally left footed which means he can only play on the left hand side of the pitch and this limits his versatility in a kind of way. Sergio Romero had a good half after the Devastating slip which nearly resulted in an own goal, he made some pretty great saves in the end of the second half and kept United in the game. Darmian kept on trying to whip the ball in to Fellaini while still doing his defensive duties efficiently.
Overall the second half effort was pretty good offensively and a tiny bit shaky defensively after a few blunders and a couple of good chances for the opposition
