Jose Mourinho is accused of not being able to rotate his Man Utd squad and how many players have been hits at Old Trafford since Sir Alex Ferguson left?
Here are some of today’s best views from our readers. Join the TEAMtalk debate right here.
Perez needs game time
Certainly will be a tough game mate. Hull have started much better than anyone expected them to. If they watched our game this week then it was fairly obvious to everyone that we do not cope well against a team who press the ball with a lot of intensity. If we come out as slow as we have been recently, most teams in the league will cause us problems.
Xhaka has to come back into the game. We need to use the ball well in deep areas and try and retain the ball much more effectively than we have been. I’m also hoping Wenger persists with Perez, even if it means out on the right with Giroud playing. Theo has a knock and the Ox looks totally devoid of any confidence. Hopefully Lucas gets some game time to help him adapt as quickly as possible.
Lallana has ‘buffed up a bit’
Nr8 The thing is Henderson is normally there shadowing the oppositions, cause he is doing the groundwork for it, players normally do not get away from him and therefor he does not need to be sliding in those challenges.
I´ve been really impressed with the work the midfield does this season, they just do not stop working for the ball and win it back so quickly. Henderson is marshaling the midfield into doing that, I thought Milner and him would be doing that but it turned out to be Lallana and him. It also seems to me that Lallana has put on a few kilos, he looks like he has buffed up a bit.
Sturridge or Firmino up front?
I think the biggest decision tonight is whether sturridge or firmino starts up top. Id like to see sturridge get at luiz but it makes sense if firminio starts.
Luiz starts and no doubt he will play out of his skin and maybe score a free kick!
Such a tough game. A draw be a great result. A win would be unreal. I think Chelsea will be a real force under conte especially at home
…’that lump Rooney’
What I loved the most about last night was how fluid we were without that lump Rooney in the team. So much pace in the side, really quick transitions and just fantastic slick play in the build up.
None of this slowing down the play nonsense. Those people calling for Rooney to be dropped were spot in – so much better without him.
