Good news on BBC Sport: "Manchester United defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah, 18, has agreed a new four-year contract with the Old Trafford club." Really liked this lad when he played - so quick and strong. One for the not too distant future.

Well Sundays win was more than welcome.
Its been a sh!te couple of seasons of late were I could not wait for it to end, but this gives me hope for this year..
Last year all teams playing crap but this year it could be the other way round with several teams all playing well.
Long may it last.

It's got to be better than the past couple of years surely, we should really win the next half dozen or so games

Loved watching Rooney's and Zlatan's link up play. They looked good playing together.

Zlatan's in my fantasy team - not had any Utd players in there for a couple of years.

Nicely done: 2-0. Clinical up front - that was the difference. Pogba looked very tasty and added bite in the middle. Shaw played very well too I thought.

Top of the table clash with Hull next

Really impressed with Pogba, did have a little chuckle after his first touch though

Pogba seemed to have livened up the midfield alright.

Hull this weekend, then the noisy neighbours the week after

A poor result for Man U

But the most interesting thing for me was the comedy goal keeping from Man sh1tty

Surely they can't hope to win the premiership with Mr Bean in goal

It was a good second half, think it all came down to tactics and Guardiola did well swapping Iheanacho for Fernandob paid off, i think that saved them or else it would have been a draw or win for United i think.

We got a lesson first half and tightened things up second with longer *****, but again Rasher comes on and changes the team for the better. Pogba had an off day as did Micki.

All in all we were no match for City, very impressive for the first 45, the only thing that may stop them winning the league is Bravo.

I disagree, untied played well second half deserved a draw.

Didn't think much of Mkhitaryan, hopefully he improves. Ibrahimovic did a cracking goal that was not an easy shot to make at all.

Could of got a Penalty aswell.

Be interesting to see how the team gets on.

I'd agree with the pen, would have been a banker if Rooney had stayed on his feet, then again he'd probably have earned himself a broken ankle had he done so.

Pogba at the minute is looking more like a 100 player never mind a 100m player, he's not the only one that's looked poor since the start of the season but the rest didn't cost 100m.

I don't think they care about the Europa league, i know i don't. I wish they were out of it and fielded the youth squad. Either way it gives Mourinho practice to workout his best squad.
