Good display.Gave up a few too many chances in the first half and lucky not to be punished.Great finishing,Pogba ran the show.DDG excellent when needed!

Decent win, decent performance and won it without getting out of 1st gear.

Only real criticism, I wish our attackers pressured opposition defences a bit quicker. When we do it we force errors.

Pogba seems to be getting back to his best. Some of the passes he played made me question what he was trying to do.... until the ball reached it destination. I just couldn't see what he was seeing.

Lukaku isn't getting the recognition he deserves at the moment. Whilst all the focus in on the dippers attack and the likes of Harry Kane. Lukaku is getting a few goals, a few assists and when he isn't doing that his movement and work off the ball creates space for his teammates.

We've got a dreadful record against Stoke (who always play against us like it's their Cup Final) so that was very satisfying. First half we wasted quite afew chances but the good thing was we kept creating them. Lovely goals, all three of them.

The confidence is flowing again now that Pogba is playing regularly. We seem very reliant on him as he is our only creative midfielder with any real drive to take the attack to the heart of the opposition. Without proper attacking wingers, it seems to be our only option these days to unlocking packed defences.

Honourable mention to Valencia too. What a goal - I didn't think he could unleash a shot like that with his left foot. Welcome back Cap'n.

Agree about Lukaku - it was only as the game went on that I realised how much of a shift he was putting in.

And last but not least - I'd like to acknowledge Phil Jones - really neat work, and some good feet too. He was looking a bit less lethargic than usual. More of the same I say.

Does anybody else really want to see Stoke relegated?

Any fans that go "oooooooh bullshit aaah" whenever the opposition keeper takes a kick out belong in div 2.

Couldn't agree more. On par with clubs that play shite music when the home team score. These teams that celebrate a draw against United like they have just won the league. Fucking hate em'

I hear you but have to agree about Hughes, legend of a player for us as he is, a cunt of a man he also is. Happily I think you can be both, simultaneously.
