I think he's right up there too but it's not been a great season for him.

In all seriousness how can anyone watch enough football to truly judge most of these players? I couldn't honestly say whose been better out of de gea and Lloris. I've seen far more of lloris this season and have no complaints about him so wouldn't swap him for anyone but I can't say he's better or worse than de gea. Someone I still rate though is Foster.

Again on the defensive front I wouldn't swap alderwield or vertognhen for anyone, they've been great together. I have seen a lot of Cahill over the years so my cut feeling if these two are better than him but I haven't watched him as much this season as I have those two so I can't really judge.

One thing I do know is that

We’ve got Alli, Dele Alli
I just don’t think you understand
He only cost five mill
He’s better than Ozil
We’ve got Dele Alli

He's made quite a few mistakes I think. Seems less commanding of the area. He's still a great shot stopper but I don't think he's been at his best.

I can't remember many mistakes. As for less commanding - that's utter nonsense. :lol:

De Gea is the best keeper in the Prem, no argument with that. I don't quite why Maf laughing at Lallana shout, not good eniugh to make that team sure but easily one of England's better players. Klopp has revolutionised the guy!

Regular occurrence at Old Trafford this season. Bet that's Rojo out for the rest of the season too knowing United's luck with injuries in defence.

EDIT: knew something like that was coming as soon as Rojo went off. Oh well.

Anderlechts goalie Ruben has made some mega saves so far.

Terrible from Ibrahimovic tonight. Poor shooting so far, so hopefully he does his usual and pops up with a goal.

Unconvincing from United even if their keeper has done well.

Knew that was onside. Poor decision.

Microcosm of our season this game.

Ibra looks like he needs to come off cue Rooney?

That looked really painful.

Looked a bit nasty for Ibra there. Could be out for a while.
