    Of course there's a reaction. You've been on a ridiculous run!

    You dont think Alisson, Gomez, Matip, Mane, Henderson,Robertson, Salah and Fabinho are key players?

    Then you dig a little deeper and look at the likes of Shaqiri, Lallana, Milner (lol) and Lovren and id say we have had injuries yea.

    Having Martial out for Two months, Rashford out for 4 months, Pogba out all season, McTominay out for two months. Bailly out for 5 months. They are injuries. Liverpool have been very fortunate in that regard with Alison at the beginning of the season being the only one and maybe Salah but he's still played 25 games this season.

    Spurs and Chelsea have equally suffered in injuries. City being the behemoth they are haven't suffered as badly as they have two teams but even still Laport has been a huge miss for them.

    I doubt they’d be as solid if they lost VVD. Are they also struggling with Firminho being off the boil? I really hope so! :)

    Bailly being injured is like me saying Lallana is...you knew in the summer he'd be injured. Are you going to add Phil Jones to that list aswell? The fact is we have suffered injuries and big ones at that, to say we havent is utter nonsense.

    I have literally just listed our injury list...they arent the only injuries at all.

    Neither would you if you lost slab head...

    You have had injuries yes but none that are for a considerable amount of time for your main back bone. With the exception of Alisson.

    Lalllana is not comparable to Bailly. Bailly can be a key player for us if he can come back from his history of injuries. He is only 25.

    Tim Krul. The legend of penalty shootouts.

    Tim Krul could save us from Coronavirus.

    You love to see it! Fantastic effort from Norwich, not sure it'll do their PL campaign any good though.

    Good result from a United point of view, if we beat Derby that is. I'm personally not a fan of Krul's mind games on penalty shootouts, I don't have a problem with moving around on the line etc but I think the keeper should remain in his goal and have to be ready when the penalty taker wants to take it.

    Plus he was way off his line for several of those pens, poor from the official on the goal line.

    I just listed the injuries and Bailly has play 20 games in 3 seasons...its a good comparison.



    Eric Dier. He will face a ban for sure but it looked like he just snapped. Hopefully Spurs pull him to one side as that wasnt nice to see.

    Very good for us. If we can win the next two games that takes us to the middle of April. Should have Pogba and maybe even Rashford back by then. Ighalo should be up to speed as well by then as you can see he is not match fit yet. Only team I worry about is obviously City. We have proven we can beat the rest in that draw.

    If you are referring to arsenal we were poor against them yes but you are not going to beat Sheffield United anyway.

    Not really, unless 13th in the Champ equates to decent.

    Oh right, declined since the days of fighting for promotion then. Still, I guess they can play reasonbly well.
