Ah nice. Yes at least with him in there you can start building your defence of the future to support this crazy attack.

Maybe they'll get some confidence back from these last 2 matches.

So Mata just got screwed out of a goal by a bad VAR call.

That’s the first decent United goal I’ve seen in a while, 2-0.

First they show off a horrificly set up VAR line system as proof Mata was offside.... then, after BT Sport showed with the correct line system that he was onside about 10-15 minutes later, the VAR shows off a new line call image that shows him barely an inch offside....

only to then announce that maybe they weren't using the second image to make the decision after all.

absolute ****ing **** up by the VAR and it stinks of the FA trying to cover their butts after the fact.

That does set up a pretty interesting possibility to have Spurs/City/United/Chelsea all involved in the semis, could be interesting. I think I'd put Spurs and City as favorites to win it based on form in all competitions.

Clubs in the relegation zone shouldn't be too demanding of their players as they have other real life responsibilities outside of the game to attend to too (like stealing taxis).

Solid if unimpressive win today, which is fine considering we rested/rotated several players in preparation for our tough run of fixtures coming up which into mid-March.

VAR decision was an absolute shambles & Huddersfield played well today, that decision could easily have put us out on another day. It was a complete mess during the Liverpool/West Brom(?) game I believe it was & it was a mess again today, takes too long to get a decision & that's not even taking into account the state of the lines used in the replay.

Lukaku did very well for both goals, particularly that 2nd goal, Sanchez IMO is the only player we have that would have played that back to him 1st time when he wanted it, everyone else we have at the club would have taken a safer option to try & keep the ball.

Decent draw for the potential of great semi finals, although the way we are playing at the moment we could easily go out to Brighton. At least in the cup performances dont matter and its just about the result which we got yesterday, Lukaku looked more like I expected when we signed him, bullying defenders and taking them on more, just a shame he still cant hold up the ball better but thats nothing new. Sanchez is beginning to link up with him well and the second goal gives a little hope things might progress going forward but the midfield was a shambles, dominated in the first half with little pace or creativity between Matic, Carrick and McTominay, we have to have to the weakest midfield out of the top 5 teams in terms of depth, we need at least one in the summer.

As for VAR, yeah, get in the bin, you're done.

You would/could expect this from youth team players to a degree (say 16/17 year old's) but grown men with 'mature' thinking.... geez.....

Especially given the situation they’re in. The fans must be very happy with them.
