First topic message reminder :

Very happy with the win tonight. Expected, especially with the team selected but good to see no messing about, just in and out.

Sturridge looked very sharp and I think he should start against Spurs and actually through the middle this time. I'm hoping Can is still available, having him deeper and Henderson further forward is much more effective. 

A bit concerned that so many key players played with Tottenham more rested, but hopefully that has given them more confidence and gives players like Mane a chance to gel.

Also Matip has to be first choice for me, looks a real prospect.

Hoping for neither to be honest. Henderson, Wijnaldum and Lallana should make up the 3 fitness permitting.

Except Can has shown repeatedly this season that he doesn't have the discipline to start as the deepest midfielder. It's a shame as he excelled there last season but he's been really poor for a while now. I'd trust Lucas to play that role over Can right now. Lucas definitely played better than Can against Southampton.

Total rubbish. 

He's not great but he's better than the alternatives and I'd feel more comfortable with him playing there than Can or Kevin Stewart.

Disappointing result. Just really struggled to break down teams recently, so many sides just sit deep and pack behind the ball and just can't get past them. The speed of the build up has to improve, too often recently it's just been sloppy balls slowing down the side, passing between the same two players, go wide and then a poor cross into the middle.

Feel it's mainly a mental thing at this stage, just need to break down a side comprehensively and then the goals will come, the confidence will return and will get back to our best.

It's a real shame that such a poor period of form has come at such a crucial time. Fair play to Southampton they played both legs pretty much perfectly from their point of view. 

Not sure you can criticise for being emotional, he's an emotional manager. I'd take him showing exactly how he's feeling every day over Brendan Rodger's David Brent act.

Absolutely bossed over the 2 legs by Southampton! Could have had 6 or 7 over the 2 legs. Fully deserved on their part. Good luck in the final.(Especially if it is United...).

Liverpool really seem to be crashing ATM. Nothing like the pre-Christmas team. At first I thought it was tiredness coupled with a lack of squad depth. Now it seems that teams have realized the easiest thing to do is sit with 10 men behind the ball as we struggle to break compact teams down and then wait for our leaky defense to gift them a number of chances from set pieces or any sort of decent counter.

I bet United wish they had got Ibrahimovic a few years ago, as soon as Van Persie's form dropped off of a cliff and it was clear Rooney wasn't cutting it any more, he'd have been perfect. Him and United are perfectly suited.

Dolph - agreed. His character also particularly impressed me - clear that a fairly minor domestic final still meant a lot to him. Possibly a concern for United though that they should be so reliant on a 35 year old.

As for the Saints - early days but I do like the look of Gabbiadini. An instinct for goal and seeming to have a real buzz about him. Assuming he wasn't injured, I thought it was a mistake to take him off. Even if tiring, he was probably capable of springing back to life if a further opportunity came. Never been sold on Forster - can put his frame in the way but lacks agility and safe handling; yesterday didn't change that view.

Typical guardiola refs getting paid off so he can pretend to be a semi decent manager. Fernandinho should've been sent off. Second goal clear interference yet even with VRS the spineless FA gift slap head a trophy.

Crap final, barely a chance in the whole two hours. Then such a non drama over the non substitution, blown out of proportion- it wasn’t a tactical change, it was one made because of an injury, except Kepa said he wasn’t injured, so no change in the end.

Complete disrespect for his manager, but this will blow over. Sarri will be gone relatively soon anyway. Doubtful Chelsea lose faith in a £70m+ investment after half a season. Just looks like De Gea when he first arrived, physically not ready for the PL, and just needs time.

Agreed, we're well past the point of anyone even pretending to think there's a chance Sarri will still be there in a few months, so this doesn't matter unless he does it again with a new manager.

Was hoping for an easier tie, Liverpool may put out a weak team. Talk of them wanting the tie moved, which surely can’t happen or them not playing it because of their fixture pile up. They have super club games I think.

Crazy to play those mid season.
