A slightly better one than the gutless Darmian.Is Herrera injured? United must have SOMEONE who can control and pass a ball better than Schneiderlin and Fellaini.
Also what type of full-back is Varela supposed to be? I've seen nothing to suggest he's a good one so far, but also don't know what his strengths are supposed to be.
Outplayed in the first half and clueless* in the second. LVG got that massively wrong, couldn't believe it when I saw Fellaini was starting, fuck knows how he stayed on the pitch for 90 minutes. And playing Rashford out wide was pointless as was playing Carrick at CB. We couldn't getting at all in attack and we had to wait until it was 2-0 before we made a double substitution.
*What was our formation in that second half?
Varela Schneiderlin Blind
Fantastic result and great performance!
I thought it was going to be one of those nights even after Sturridge's pen especially when De Gea was once again on fire - fuck me what a keeper - and Coutinho missing that sitter. However they stuck at it and were creating good chances all night though Man Utd were absolutely woeful and how Fellaini stayed on that pitch I'll never know particularly with a card happy ref. Happy Liverpool got the second and a 2 - 0 is perfect going into the away leg - surely Man Utd will show a bit more there?
Great night, I'm going to have a celebratory dram or three tonight!
