Newcastle United

2-3: Saturday, 2nd November

Did not play.

Sheffield United

1-1: Saturday, 26th October

(Replaced Noble) Scurrying around as he does, his ball across the goal was fantastic.

Crystal Palace

1-2: Saturday, 5th October

(Replaced Lanzini) Did little to influence a game that the man he replaced also struggled in.

Bournemouth

2-2: Saturday, 28th September

Worked hard and his energy was useful in the first half. Involved in some good move, but he is still just a little way off being good. Lanziniís cameo showed what heís missing.

Oxford United

0-4: Wednesday, 25th September

Not the player for a game requiring physical prowess.

Manchester United

2-0: Sunday, 22nd September

He didnít really make big contributions, but his influence on the game was in his hard work all over. He did the yards in the middle to give Noble an easier game, made up ground to get to Haller, got across the width of the pitch in attacks too. That off the ball play is encouraging, as the sharpness will come on it.

Norwich City

2-0: Saturday, 31st August

(Replaced Anderson) Few minutes but he ran hard and had a few nice touches.

Newport County

2-0: Tuesday, 27th August

Missed a big chance and floated around aimlessly at times, but really good work for his goal. Still seems a little bit off where he needs to be, lacking some sharpness.

Watford

3-1: Saturday, 24th August

(Replaced Anderson) Quietly into the game late on to little impact.

Brighton & Hove Albion

1-1: Saturday, 17th August

Off the pace of the league so far. An extra touch here or there that isnít needed.

Manchester City

0-5: Saturday, 10th August

(Replaced Antonio) Looked a bit lost, certainly not adapted to the pace of the Premier League, and he came on against a charged up City. As rude an awakening as you can get, heíll need time to get used to it. Quite anonymous.

Athletico Bilbao

2-2: Saturday, 3rd August

Always looking to make something happen. Scored United's second. He looks like a great addition to the squad.

Hertha Berlin

5-3: Wednesday, 31st July

Just about the best player on the park. Scored a lovely goal and looked lively throughout.
