We are top of the league! Say wearetopoftheleague!


Okay, so it’s temporary pending Man City’s clash with Chelsea, but it still stands in striking contrast to some of the malaise that’s resulted from our indifferent form and raft of injuries, which almost worsened when Trossard collided with the post while scoring the first goal. Saliba nodded home from Trossard’s corner, and Zinchenko added a scintillating scissor-kick shot to kill the match. Vieira was rightly sent off late for putting his studs to Brownhill’s knee, but Burnley just didn’t have enough to take advantage. Let’s get to the poll and rate the lads!

      Yes, sadly, Google Forms doesn’t allow me to offer that option. More’s the pity. There was a time not so long ago that I thought highly of Oliver – probably residue from his sending Angel Di Maria off during that FA Cup match al Old Trafford years ago.

    Solid win
    Saliba made an actual error that might have lead to a goal if Raya hadn’t had made a good save. He’s of this world.
    Although Vieira’s red was correct, Oliver must have been so pleased to give it.

      agreed. I suspect Saliba made the error on purpose to suggest that he’s not in fact perfect so as to give attackers a false sense of confidence. Very savvy of him.

      Vieira was lucky that he didn’t cause serious injury to Brownhill. The red was indeed correct.
