For United fans:

Is Rashford now your preferred CF?  Is Lukaku behind Martial and possibly even Sánchez too?  Does Lukaku still have a future in the first XI?

I think he does have a future in the first XI. He might have been first choice when Solskjaer came in as well but was on compassionate leave and missed a couple of games while Sanchez was still recovering from injury. Martial, Rashford and Lingard were the only forward options available and all three ended up performing well. On current form, they've earned the right to start. Lukaku is also really effective playing on the right and I'd play him there over Mata.

Our midfield has looked miles better now Fabinho and Lallana are one, but that still doesn't explain why Klopp would pick Wijnaldum and Keita as our starters in the first place. I mean, it's not a fucking secret that they're both shit.

A big missed opportunity today, but not the end of the world.

Klopp fucked up yet again with his midfield selection. I really don't know what Wijnaldum has over him. It's no coincidence that we're not dominating games as much as last season, now that Wijnaldum is playing so much. (And the defensive solidity came because of Robertson and VVD, not because of Wijnaldum's introduction this season.)

The formation we use wastes Firmino too, he's not as effective there. He's much better nearer the goal.

Disappointing for Liverpool.  Not enough good chances created, although we were denied a clear penalty for Keita.  And stupid to concede that free kick that led to the equalizer.  

I assume Fabinho was on the bench because he’s coming back from a muscle strain, but we miss him in MF now any time he’s absent. 

Playing conditions looked a bit tough with the snow/sleet on the surface slowing the ball. 

Better focus needed away to West Ham on Monday.

I was surprised by the pitch actually. We had an inch or so of snow last night but it was clear and bright all day, and much of it had disappeared.

Absolutely crazy. Only a few weeks ago, Arsenal were getting further and further behind, United were miles off the pace and Chelsea's 4th spot didn't look in much danger. Not sure what's going on at Stamford Bridge but they're having real problems.
