Sorry guys & gals - but no report, not because I did;t go, but because the hole media from Sky to BBC to Talksport to .... have been waxing lyrically enough about the performance and the quality of the side.

Just loved the game. Complete footballing dominance. What a pity that chances were not taken. Would have made the world stand up - not just sit up - and take notice.

For what it is worth:
Patricio - 7 - everything dealt with, no fuss
Bennett - 7 - commanding in air, even when dealing with giants
Coady - 8 - tidied up everything when giants won first header
Boly - 8 - magnificent on the ball. So cool & calm. Almost scored 2 more.
Doherty - 9 - Martin O'Neill??? Who's he? How did Doc win that ball to get cross for goal? Defender should have booted for corner!
Moutinho - 9 - absolute gem. Bargain of 2018.
Neves - 7 - did ok I suppose ( :wink: ), but shooting boots left at home.
Jonny - 8 - superb performance. No more whines re Douglas, surely?
Costa - 7 - up for the battle. Looks back to best - except need some goals from him.
Jimenez - 8 - this guy will become a legend!
Jota - 8 - best game this season. Looked much more on the pace and positive. A goal at Old Trafford!

Usual subs - usual result.
Traore - 8 - in 20 minutes created 3 gilt-edged chances - all spurned!
Bonatini - 7 - usual great link up, but snatched at chances. Could have had 3; should have had 2. DESPERATELY needs a couple of goals to settle him down, or he will be gone.
MGW - only 5 minutes.

Surprised Nuno hasn't given Saiss at least half a half. Would have thought he could have been on to shore up middle in last 20 minutes, as Neves & Moutinho start to tire... Also, his height at set pieces might have been useful.

Great fun. Unfortunately, missing OT game as am in London for a 'do'! Look forward to reading someone else's 'JGB'.... recording our glorious victory!

Moutinho bargain of 2018 you say

I'm struggling to disagree - beyond what he brings to the side personally, he's also here for Neves to learn from - similar to the way Liverpool brought in Gary mcallister to aid Steven Gerrard's development

Very astute signing - his performances have surpassed my expectations - I've rated him since first seeing him in 2006 but thought he might struggle coming to England at this stage of his career - taken to the Prem like a duck to water
