Yeah, class

I think his finishing is his best quality, he really knows what strike to hit and when

He's just a bit shite at the defensive stuff

But a proper United midfielder in his scoring, runs, vision, energy etc
Amazing considering he only scored 11 goals in 5 la liga seasons. Why do you think he's shite defensively?
His positioning is questionable as he chases the ball a lot, like Bielsa had em doing at Bilbao, when at United you need to keep the shape and stand off - not go after lone runners.

And too often he's miles ahead of the ball, waiting for it, which leaves a huge gap in midfield which the opposition exploit if we lose the ball. I think he lacks that defensive intuition you need as an all round midfielder. It also means means we struggle to get the ball from defence to attack because there's no link. He doesn't bring much physically either in terms of scrapping in the box.

He's an attacking midfielder though, and he's great at the most important thing which is scoring.

He's spoken about it a couple of times, about unlearning that Bilbao approach, and it will come because he's constantly saying he needs to improve. He's just said it again in his post match

I've been travelling all day, sounds like some classy goals scored today. We are 1 point off second and we've been "shit" this season..... Title challenge next year??
