    Southampton. Was great for me because I've got Lambert in my team, but Villa didn't deserve that.

    Oh great Diaby is back in the starting line up, for the next 3 games before he injures himself again.

    I don't understand this, Liverpool have probably the best out of the box shooter in the PL in Gerard and yet they don't pass him the ball to fire one.

    Yea same here I have Lambert too but that was horrible to see when it was shown on MOTD, Welbeck is having a shocker today for ball control.

    Welbeck and ball control doesnt go well together. Ever. One of my lowest rated players in the United squad because of his poor ball control and passing.

    I believe I've made my opinions known on Welbeck before. Why Hernandez isn't playing today is beyond me, this Liverpool back four is ideal for him.

    I think Chicha and RvP work better together but that's just imo.

    Everthing works better than Welbeck + anything. Welbeck and Giggs should not be in the squad this year.

    Giggs played decent in the last couple games though.

    That pass to Van Persie in the FA Cup strongly disagrees with you.

    He shouldn't be starting games, but he's undeniably brilliant to have on the bench.

    Anyway, 10 points ahead, City without a lot of key players today, and Arsenal fielding as good a side as they possibly can.

    Still fancy City to scrape 3 points here, but this will be a brilliant game.

    One pass is pretty much all he has done well this season. His passing is subpar than what it has been previous seasons and just like Welbeck he loses the ball way to often.

    I can agree with having him on the bench but having him in the squad seems to mean that SAF needs to start him every third game and then he is a liability on the team.

    Joke of the day.

    I'm not sure what I'm more shocked at, that Welbeck was given it, or that it wasn't Carrick.

    I've ragged on Carrick more than anyone for the last few years, but this season he's stepped up.

    This season he could easily be our best player hmm did I just say that about Carrick.

    Welbeck's finishing is horrendous, but his work-rate is just superb.

    Overall United deserved the win. Valencia is a pathetic shell of his former self and when he came on it was clear that United's quality will decrease. I think Liverpool were unlucky not to score in the final 30 minutes but Rogers is the man to blame for this loss. Some awful decisions like starting with Joe Allen and Benching Sturridge for Sterling.
    Suarez did nothing the whole game thanks to best CB in the league for the big games - Rio Ferdinand.

    That's one way to save a PK.

    Arsenal are in big trouble this game, I see no way back for them. 0-2 Man City up after 33 minutes.
