    Any word on how long Kante is out? He will be a big loss.

    Kante hasn't been the same Kante for a while now.

    Don't think it'll be THAT big a loss. Jorginho+Kovacic with Mount in front is still a very good midfield.

    Real question is how long Tammy is out

    No word on Kante yet but Ahmer's right, there's definitely a case to be made that we've actually been better without him this season.

    I don't think Tammy is far out, Frank said he's a "maybe" for the weekend.

    Yeah it really shows Kante’s decline in that I just don’t feel bothered by his injury(obviously on a personal level for the player I wish it hadn’t happened) but from a team point of view as others have said Kovacic/Mount/Jorginho has probably been our best midfield this year.

    He was the little lad in the middle bossing Jorginho and Kovacic last night, mate.

    Fred has improved a lot and I know you're partially just gloating about last night but the hype train has gotten out of control. He's still a squad player at the end of the day :joy:

    Insufferable after being gifted a win via VAR against an average team in awful form, this is the pinnacle of just how far United have fallen.

    Fred is a starter for me. He has improved significantly, he is consistently good.

    It's absolute madness, these are the sort of incidents that VAR was brought in for. You can understand how the referee missed it but there's no excuse for the VAR official. It's the type of baffling decision which deserves an explanation.

    Like I said yesterday, I'm all for technology but when the officials using it are fools what's the point? VAR hasn't aided anything this season, it's only added more controversy.

    Is he better than McT? For me, no.
    Is he better than Bruno? For me, no.

    Then you have to ask yourself if he's the right profile of player to partner them? I'd say not most of the time. Against 70% of this league, you'd want a more creative force like Grealish (who it seems we're targeting).

    He's more of a horses for courses option in big games for one of Bruno/Grealish to tighten things up at the back for me.

    For me Fred is what you call in basket a no.6 man.
    Not good enough to be one of the first name on the team sheet but a vital part of the team who will play a lot of games and minutes.

    As a holding midfielder, Fred has a better range of passing than McT, he is just as good at winning the ball back. McT is more likely to get you a goal though, both are good enough as holding midfielders, gives us great rotational options. After Fred's impressive run of form, can't choose between Fred/McT.

    I believe Bruno is Pogba's replacement, Grealish will bought as an attacking midfielder. Next season can see us line-up Fred/McT, Bruno, Grealish.

    It's a shame to see articles like this being published already, very little substance within it too.

    Given the transfer ban and sale of Hazard, Lampard should get a pass this season.

    If he doesn't get CL next season, then yes.

    I’d sooner stick with Lampard tbh, no need to chop and change. Lampard has done pretty well all things considered.

    I’m not saying he should go (I personally think he should be given next season aswell) but if he was poch would be perfect imo.

    They can have Bats next, they seem to like buying our strikers.

    Because he’d have turned into the next KDB/Salah if we did 😂

    Frank shouldn't be under scrutiny at all. Even if you finish 6th that's higher than most expected pre season tbh. Just a victim of his own early season success which changed expectations.

    Nobody expected everyone to underperform. Expectations changed because the league isn't good this year and top 4 is achieveable and not just because Frank was successful early in the season
