1. A PASSION DRIVEN ENCOUNTER
That was a frenetic game,filled with adrenaline, and unsafe for any person living with a high blood pressure.
2. POGBA HAD A BAD DAY AT THE OFFICE
Nothing seemed to work. To add pepper to his wounds, he conceeded the penalty....I would have pulled him out instead of Carrick if I was Mou.
3. LIVERPOOL CAME WITH A FANTASTIC TACTICAL PLAN
Press United high, zone mark, and squeeze out Carrick the fulcrum of the midfield. It worked well as United had fewer chances than they've had in recent games.
4. VALENCIA HAS BECOME UNMARKABLE
He is probably United's most consistent player this season. He was fantastic today, totally dominating the right flank with marauding runs made through out the 90 minute encounter.
5. ZLATAN SHOULD BE GIVEN THE TITLE OF "EKWUEME(TALK-NA-DO) l OF OLD TRAFFORD".
He seemed to have been marked out of the game but popped up when it mattered most.
....Mou may be in charge, but "Fergie time" is back at Old Trafford. We may have lost 2 points, but the fighting spirit was admirable. Not a bad result. #Chelsea is the happy team.
GLORY GLORY MAN UNITED.
