Pretty much agree with your thoughts there. I've no complaints with the result.
I've said everywhere else so I might as well say it here too. I still think our midfield is a problem. On top of a sluggish start we were basically in trouble. Lucas and Allen aren't at the races at the moment. So I hope there's an area that Rodgers will look at sooner rather than later. More dominance in the middle of the park so that Johnson and Wisdom can actually push forward rather than taking the risks they currently are (Johnson especially.)
It certainly would have been nicer to give Ferdinand and Vidic a bit more to think about. Sturridge is certainly promising. His pace is blistering at times and I thought he could have worked de Gea a bit more on the odd occasion. Lets hope his scoring run continues as well.
I think Lucas' rehabilitation could have a lot to answer for but it isn't going to improve without playing, Allen is definitely not in form either. Shelvey is a very aggressive and hard working guy, I think he would have been better against United and has to be in contention now.
