    A draw would suit me.

    Ditto.

    A harsh, vindictive, attritional slugfest with cards aplenty.

    What a nasty attitude, have to say I disagree with this.

    Appreciate the initiative there, but, having lost an anterior cruciate ligament and sporting a titanium golf tee in one elbow - separate incidents - I'm not about to wish heavy harm on anyone.

    Three match bans, persistent niggles, dressing room acrimony and coaching crises will do nicely.

    I’m confused. If they get a point in their game in hand, they go top. Yet, their team is really average. Take Bruno Fernandes out of the side, and there are no players that I’d be desperate for us to have. Now, I’m biased, I get it, but really...which players do they have which would get in to our first 11?

    Rashford and Martial are a lesser Son and Kane. Yet, those two are amongst the better United players next. After that...am I really underrating their players? Or is the Fernandes and pelanties routine the one that is making all the difference. I think Pogba could be top class but is inconsistent. That’s it. Someone please show me what my bias is hiding from me.

    Anyone
    Would be 6 points worse off without the pelanties that turned a draw into a win this season.

    I checked out average ratings for players from each of the teams. Their top three performing players are Fernandes (7.61), Rashford (7.32), and Wan-Bissaka (7.09).
    The above is from the website www.whoscored.com

    As for us;
    Kane (7.90)
    Son Heung Min (7.54)
    Aurier (7.14)

    So in a way, comparable top three players in terms of positions. Yet, our top 3 come out on top for each of the three positions. Manchester United have scored five pelanties to the three that we have scored. So it’s not that telling although, of course as has been said above, a pelanty can be the difference between drawing or winning a match.

    I feel confident that we will beat them when they travel to us. So we can likely finish above them but wow...for a team punching higher than their level..it’s Manchester United.

    Just on quality Rashford over Bergwijn/Lucas/Bale is quite obvious. Not sure if it would work tactically, but on quality no doubt.

    McTominay over Sissoko/Winks all day. I also think Wan Bissaka and Maguire would get into our team, but I can definitely see people would disagree.

    It's our defence... Mainly CBs and keeper that splits the difference. Theirs not the best but still more dominating and stronger. Ours just looks inviting.

    McTominay is class and under rated
    Bissaka ha skikda regressed defensively as he has progressed attacking wise which is interesting to see
    Maguire is Dier basically IMO

    it’s like every team in that you can iver rate your own, but similarly think the grass is greener

    4th SF loss in a row for Ole, 9th in a row for Maguire bizarrely.
