Manchester United take on League One side Rochdale tonight, hoping to book their place in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup.
The Red Devil’s were poor during their 2-0 loss to West Ham United on Sunday, and need a big performance to lift their spirits again, ahead of Monday’s huge game against Arsenal at Old Trafford.
United fans just need something to hang onto, whether it’s a brilliant individual performance a huge win, just anything to lift the mood around the place. Their performance on Sunday was a million miles from the level they need to be at – no quality, fight, closing down and very little positives to note.
Who will Ole Gunnar Solksjaer be hoping can light up Old Trafford tonight?
In my opinion, this kid is going to be a superstar. Just a goal scorer that looks destined to lead their frontline in the near feature. Greenwood has immense confidence for his age, just look watch his goal against F.C. Astana in the Europa League. Another poor United performance, saved by the youngster taking it upon himself to win the game with a great individual goal.
A young defender that I think will feature in United’s defence for many years. I think Harry Maguire has settled in reasonably well, however, Victor Lindelof just isn’t a United defender. Not good enough in the air, and just doesn’t fill me with any confidence when watching him.
Tuanzebe was outstanding at Villa last season, both defensively and offensively, in terms of starting attacks from the back. That’s what United are lacking in my opinion, players that can continue waves of attacks by feeding their creative players.
Tuanzebe is comfortably carrying the ball out of defence, finding Paul Pogba in pockets of space for example. He needs to start tonight and show why he should be starting alongside Maguire.
