Lively start but then we were hit by a number of counter attacks and with United on the up they finally found the back of the net. We did well to play our way back into the game and went in at half time with plenty to play for. Almost immediately Che took his chance well and it was game on. We missed a few good chances to win it but in fairness so did United so a draw was probably a fair result in the end. To put in a performance like that after Wednesday’s exertions was very pleasing and Ralph and the team can take great credit in taking 4 points out of two very difficult away matches. Forster was my MotM for some crucial stops closely followed by Romeu. What a brilliant buy he had been. And we finally got to see Tino and KWP play on the right together! Everton won’t be a pushover. I saw some of their game against Leeds and they seem to be up for it now so looking forward to that battle.

What? No I_would posting first with his usual Hassenaclue/anti-Ward-Prowse drivel? I wonder why that is - after the week we've had.

Romeu was immense. Really good well deserved draw. I think the McGuire stamp on Broja was accidental but still could have been given as a penalty. Very nasty if he did intend it. Great save from Forster at the end just as I thought Utd had got their almost obligatory late winner at Old Trafford. Some great performances throughout the team. To play so well after the energy and emotion against Tottenham and a day's less recovery time than Utd was impressive.

We weren't quite as intense and polished as the other night, but that was to be expected. But we dug in, could have won it, so could they so a draw was a fair and good result. 5 points from the last 3 games is outstanding and Ralph is doing a super job.

Well played lads. I think a fair result and great to see us battle back. I thought Sutey was trying to drive it through DeGea on his one shot. Everton will not be easy but if we play like this, it shows we can play with the best and hold our own.

Great game and we played brilliantly given our superb effort on Wednesday.

The high press was less evident, but the traps in midfield, especially when KWP, Stu and JWP or Orio combined against the touch line and then resultant fast transition were brilliant. Only Issue was Broja he is a force and bossed Maguire but that is 5 one on ones with the keeper that he has missed over the last 2 games. If he starts slotting those...OMG he will be good and worth a shed load!

Che was magnificent. What a team fact who team has such a brilliant and varied series of game plans, that they switch through so easily and so well. We are a great team to watch and I am loving it. Coming across in a couple of weeks and i cant wait.

Shout out to Jack Stephens as well. He was faultless and played really well.

The coverage was awful. Hoddle winds me up!....on Wednesday Spuds couldn't kick it out as it was 2 passes. Complete bollocks and clear choice made on 2nd of 5 passes. Today, Ralph and JWP need to move to Manure! Also why no close up on Fernandes right hook at JWP?

Excellent all round performance. Apart from a few counter attacks, the only time we looked in trouble was when Romeu was pulled backed to centre half. That lost us control of midfield until he was moved back. He had an outstanding game. The big difference now is that we have 11 players in position and contributing 100%. Armstrong and Elyanoussi make a huge difference compared with Redmond, Walcott and Djenepo.

Four points from two away games at places where we have struggled at in the past must be a major plus. The unbeaten run goes on. Two home games next against Everton and Norwich will guarantee our safety for another year. Ralph has again silenced the doubters, but it was interesting to hear Paul Scholes tout Ralph for Man Utd.
The pressing football can be exciting, but we were again caught out when Kyle WP was again too far forward. I would like to see the fullbacks just playa little deeper covering the breakaway

Great game. As said above a draw was probably fair. Man Utd are the new Spurs tho. You are still in it even if they are in front at half time. They got a bit narky in the second half

I think we looked a bit tired after a busy week. Armstrong certainly did which is to be expected after being off for so long injured.

Cracking game by the front two. Che and Broja are quite a gruesome twosome to play against. Cracking goal by Che - Who needs Ings?

Big Frase was just immense. Back to his best. Can he stay please?

It must be such a thrill for players like Broja and Tino to be on the pitch in a competitive team playing against world class players rather than sat on the bench or in the reserves at a big 6 club.

If we can keep this standard up, must be in a shout for a Europa League place. Ralph I salute you.

Probably a fair result..... but the HOME SIDE BIAS still prevades virtually all games at OT
