At times, we do not really know if this could be a blessing in disguise cos his absence could be seen as an absence of disruption within the team.
Cos whenever he is fit, his name is almost certainly be in the first ELEVEN regardless of his form as OGS seems fearful to omit non-performing players

Our devastating front 3 of MR, AM & DJ is quick and clinical in this match if they can keep up this form they will destroy the rest of the league’s defenses

Although DJ should be careful in trying to earn penalties. Honestly I think he was fortunate not to be carded for the penalty claim (which VAR gave).

OS needs to assess and cement the 1st team selection.
PP injury has given exposure and game time for the likes of Fred and AP. The former shows much improvement compared to earlier games.
With the current lean squad, must say we perform well.
Lets hope they can gel and improve further.

With the Carabao Cup against Chelsea coming up

Hope it is not one step forward, three steps back.

Chelsea improved alot after their 4-0 mauling by us.

Pulisic scored a fine hat trick, left foot, right foot, header.

We need to be more ruthless, and now who will be installed as the penalty taker after the misses?????

The lads should remain focused and not get distracted by the media reports that we have found our solution to the front players. A match against a bottom club should, and never be used as a benchmark. OGS should still continue his push with the Board for Jan reinforcement rather then be led by false belief that we are ok.
We are far from being "okay" team to be in contention for top 4 position.

Still believe are players are far from being physically fit considering the frequency of hamstring n muscle injuries.

We had a good game but against Norwich cannot be used as a benchmark.
With the current players, very challenging to be in the top 4.

All of us knew that certain positions needed new reinforcements and it is very hard to get the right player in Jan window.
Rumor about us signing Mandruzki in Jan is only a short term measure, buy it might be one that is necessary. We cannot afford to have one of our front 3 injured (even if Greenwood is available, ole seems not keen to put him in)

Cant based on winning a bottom tier team to determine we are better.
Evidently we saw an improved united won the match. And not because we had an easier match.
And btw Norwich may be bottom tier but they have beaten Man City at 3-2.
No match is easy except we are better with selection or formation to play our best.
We need to look into reinforcement in the coming transfer window again.
A striker, an attacking midfielder, and left back.
Greenwood is like young MR who needs to build on mass and physique.
