Zinchenko is a talented player, but Tierney is clearly a far better left back and defender. 

Was thinking the same. They've been caught out down that side of the pitch a few times with Zinchenko either pulled inside or halfway up the pitch. Zinchenko is obviously miles better than Tavares but it's shades of last season when Arteta persisted with him after Tierney came back from injury and he cost them points. 

Surely Tierney at left back and Zinchenko in midfield is the way to go, especially in the bigger matches.

They're being careful with Tierney. Probably correct given his injury history.

The shite they're speaking, will be hilarious to watch Man Utd fall apart again.

Yeah they're absolutely desperate for them to mount some sort of challenge. 

No perspective at all.

Good for a lot of the Liverpool game, could've easily drawn against Southampton, were far from convincing against a dreadful Leicester side and then dominated for much of today. Could look at it two ways: either it's good that they're getting wins while there are teething problems, or this form is just a flash in the pan. Time will tell.

If Ten Hag deliberately sets the team up to score in the first half then allow themselves to get dominated while hitting teams on the break, then he might be the most genius manager in the league.

And had a good look at on video, he must have felt he’d made enough of an error to overturn his original verdict.

Clear and obvious is such an ambiguous term I don’t think you can jump on it.

It's not though.

Clear - easy to perceive, understand, or interpret

Obvious - easily perceived or understood; clear, self-evident, or apparent

If the referee is spending ages looking at a challenge, then his 'error' is neither clear nor obvious.

A clear and obvious error is something like Italy's free kick to win the game against Scotland at Hampden in 2007. It's where the referee for some reason has had a momentary lapse of insanity or an impaired view. A decision a ref will look at and on first viewing think 'f**k me, what have I done?'

If it requires multiple slo-mo views, then it's not clear and obvious, or clear or obvious.
