Based on yesterday, his strength in the air has improved and his range of passing out of defence was excellent.

Playing on the wrong side too. Clearly, third choice ahead of Hause. Lukaku will be a different type of test though.

Great to see the greater Manchester police force has taken no action on the racism axel received online as "they have exhausted all avenues" and closing the cases for him and martial.

That will show all those racist coward trolls to stop. Pathetic

He got caught wrong side and then sprinted to make up for his lack of positioning and made it easy for Lukaku to score. Piss poor defending.

Yes, was very poor. Seemed to me as if he didn't fancy a physical contest with Lukaku in the box (a problem with physical forwards in the championship) and sold himself with embarrassing ease as a result. Should have blocked him and held up him or at a minimum forced Lukaku to shoot with his left from a narrow angle.

He doesn't appear bulky enough to have taken on and beaten Lukaku in that sort of battle

Lukaku said he knew Axel would think he'd go for a left foot shot, as they'd played together before, and then dummied him; sometimes just got to give credit to the other player.

Thought he played well Vs Chelsea cup tie. Real leader at the back and showed good character.

Dean Smith on Axel
He’s a fantastic player, that’s why we wanted him. On top of that, he’s got an unbelievable attitude and application to the game. "His character within the dressing room – for me, there’s a future captain in there for whichever club he’s at. He’ll go back to Manchester United at the end of the season. “He’s a wonderful character and his game is getting better and better. He’s done exceptionally well since he’s come into the team. He’ll be a big loss we have to decide whether to go to a back four or stick with a five."

Axel seems so much stronger than when he played for us before. He's certainly come on a lot.
Do we have an option to buy him?

He signed a 12 month extension before he joined.  That would suggest that Yanited don't want him leaving on a free.  Maybe one of those "gentlemen's agreements" that so incensed the hordes over the summer.

That's a shame, I quite like him. It would be so much better if he was ours come what May and not wasting away with that lot.

With Varane in, he's less likely to play so there's a fair chance it will happen.

I noticed Varane got injured playing for France. Hopefully no recall clause for Axel as Maguire is still injured?

He wouldn't be able to play until January even if they wanted to recall him.
