The goal was a bit disappointing. Young shouldn't have been allowed to get the cross in, Lukaku should have been marked better, or FF should have come out and punched, but they got lucky with the rebound going straight back to Lukaku.
2nd half we were a different team and Lemina led the charge at almost every attempt. Shame his team mates don't have the same skill and commitment he does. We pressured Man U at every opportunity, restricting them to just a couple of breakaway chances, but again, we seem to get camped in that 18 yards to 30 yards out - passing it from one side to the other until someone can actually cross it, or misses the pass. Still we had a few good chances but Redmond failed to get any power in his shots, Rom put it wide when a foot one side is a goal and a foot the other side is a tap in for Long and his header got cleared off the line by the acting cheating diving cvnt Fellani (how Austin would have loved that chance !)
Still we definitely had them worried - they must have had 6 defenders on at the end - desperately holding on for the points, kicking, pulling, cheating and feigning their way into wasting time. To cap it all, injury time is only 4 mins - should have been 6mins with all the subs and injuries to Fellani and Jones - and 3 minutes of those 4 are wasted with the sending off of Jose - which didn't get added on.
Still, a great second half performance at least, especially once we realised we could actually get something from the game. I hope we can put in a similar showing on at Stoke as we did in the second half today. Lemina is a quality signing and is now worth double what we paid for him !! Absolute quality player and man of the match by a country mile, even though the BBC said it was Romeu !!

Much better performance today than the last home game. Starting to look like a team playing with confidence again.
