Schurrle: Showing his best form again

The forward, who moved to Stamford Bridge from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer, scored a second-half hat-trick as Germany won 5-3 at Sweden in Tuesday night's World Cup qualifier.

And Low admitted if the 22-year-old maintained his current level of performance he would be a definite in his World Cup squad.

Low said on www.dfb.de: "I told him recently that last year I wasn't very happy with his development.

"But now, in some games with us and in England, he has shown again what he can do.

"He is dynamic, works back well and has a strong finish.

"His physical strength was also always an issue, but he has worked well. If he continues to play like that, the World Cup will certainly not pass him by."

Germany will travel to Brazil next summer as one of the favourites for the tournament, but Low knows his side need to tighten up at the back.

"We will take the right conclusions out of this game," he said.

"That we want to improved defensively with a view to the World Cup is clear. That is not just the case since this game. Also offensively, we have to show more urgency in the final third."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
