Goals in the 11th and 53rd minute set the striker up for a hat-trick but Clough sent on Nathan Tyson for the last 24 minutes - much to Robinson's chagrin.

"He was on a hat-trick so he wasn't exactly chuffed about it," said Clough.

"But he had been carrying a bit of a strain in training and with a game here against Barnsley on Tuesday it made sense to bring him off.

"If he's disappointed about it, he can score a hat-trick against them.

"It was the complete performance, exhilarating. We did everything right to take advantage of a difficult situation for Blackpool."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
