Having enjoyed a prolific 2017, excelling in the forbidding temperatures in the Icelandic top-flight, it is little wonder Emil Lyng looked so at home in snow-kissed Clackmannanshire as he helped Dundee United dispatch Alloa.

Dundee United need a Dunfermline-style recovery to rejoin the hunt

If Dundee United are searching for positives in light of their third game in four without a victory, a run that has seen them drop eight points behind league leaders St Mirren, they could do worse than find inspiration from the recent turnaround in fortunes enjoyed by Saturday’s hosts.

Sights we’d like to see: Wenger at Dumbarton, pie voucher in pocket

The other night, in the middle of a touchline ban, Arsene Wenger faced a dilemma and the potential of having insult added to inconvenience. Normally when managers are banished to the stands they watch from the directors’ box but at Chelsea the poshest seats are right across the field from the dressing rooms. That would have meant a yomp at half-time, losing valuable minutes from his team talk, when he would have been highly conspicuous in his trademark long grey quilted gown – and even before Antonio Conte sneered at him for being “old”, the Arsenal boss would have faced considerable abuse from the successors of the Stamford Bridge skinhead cognoscenti.

Falkirk 6 - 1 Dundee United: Bairns hit United for six

New year, new Falkirk. A team that had enjoyed just one victory in their previous 11 games, they had also spent the last few days under fire thanks to the disgraceful antics of some fans during the midweek defeat to Dunfermline but in completely and utterly overwhelming Championship title hopefuls Dundee United, they ensured themselves some positive feedback for a change.
