    My goodness! We are always trying to go through the middle. We need to stretch the widths to run at the full backs. The middle is too congested.

    Greenwood seems to have lost all his instinct in front of goal this season. Coaching might help <whistle>

    Wonderful tactically switch by Ole! Pushing Greenwood forward and van De Beek to the right. That decision definitively resulted in that goal.

    We need to use the width against these smaller teams that come to park the bus. Stretch the play to force them to lose their shape and things will open up as it did in the last thirty minutes.

    Sky - Only Wayne Rooney (15) and Marcus Rashford (13) have scored more Premier League goals as a teenager for Manchester United than Mason Greenwood (12).

    Henderson just doesn't do it for me, it must be a no brainer when Donny and Marie is available on a free in the summer.

    Under a better manager he'd be comfortably ahead <whistle>

    Where did that come from? The man hasn’t had to touch the ball in the second half. He also made a good first save in the first hit for Welbeck’s goal.

    Would you worry about going up to Henderson in a pub and giving him a slap - no. Would you even think about going near Donny and Marie (6ft 5") in a pub - **** no. Henderson has nothing going for him except the No 1 shirt for England which, let's face it, is no recommendation. He is hesitant and too inexperienced to be our No1 keeper.

    Game of 2 halves. Brighton was better in the first half and deserved to be ahead. We were better in the second. Rashford despite his goal is not at full fitness. Nor was Cavani. Pushing Greenwood more forward gave us the goal.

    Nothing to write home about the performance but results is all at this stage especially when the likes of Chelsea Leicester Spurs have dropped points.

    At this point in time, I still prefer him to De Gea. I won’t talk about another keeper that we don’t have.

    I don't think he'll cut it mate tbh. I could be wrong but he seems like a keeper who will shine at another club without the pressure but isn't quite commanding or confident enough to be No1 at United. I could be wrong and would love to be but atm I don't see it.
