This is not knee jerk...! Is that four years on the trot with no goals at least of Trafford .

When was our last win at a top 4 stadium ? Why aren't we getting wins at these grounds , what are we doing wrong ?

Because we lack belief to do so and at times it doesn't help when the ball is played from side to side then back again, plus no one good enough to fill in when Kane is injured that all adds up to a team that is very good but cannot win the ultimate prizes.

The away form at these teams needs to change . We all knew today was going to be a loss and we accept that it's ok because we only lost 1-0

Absolutely I was sitting there expecting to lose and had a feeling that we could not see out the last ten minutes and so it proved, like I have said before we are not winning anything until we get a result or two.
Let's be clear here will we beat city, Chelsea, arsenal or Liverpool away from home this year answer is no maybe one draw in that lot, the rest we will lose so I can't see why many on here still think we can win it total madness.

I think our last win was at the etihad when Eriksen scored from Lamelas through ball.

In general though, our record against the top 5 away from home isn't great. We are not getting hammered by these teams but we're always just a bit short and coming away with a point at most.

Let's not even mention Stamford bridge...

That's the most embarrassing one of the lot.
Yep I was 21 the last time we won there I'm almost 50 now fucking pathetic record totally gutless same at all the other top sides at their place.

It's a running embarrassment. Makes you think, especially after today, that we're not quite as good as we think.
Anyone who says that gets shouted down. Don't get me wrong, I'm no hater but the way some of our fans go on makes us out to be world beaters.

I'm quietly confident. Poch isn't dumb, he will fix these issues and if he doesn't then it's bye bye thanks for all the hard work.

It's a complete fallacy you need to win those games to win the league. A proper nonsense. Look at Liverpool last year, they got excellent results against the top 6 and were nowhere by the end of season.

You need a certain amount of points to win the league. Where you get them from doesn't matter.

Also drawing away from home against our competitors. That's a good result. That's dropped points for them. So just counting wins doesn't even tell the full story of a non story.

That man united team lost away at Huddersfield last week. That's why we'll finish ahead of them.

It's not like the performances are too impressive.

Why do Lloris, Dier, Jan etc try and play from the back from every goal kick?

The opposition - even a Mourinho team - will push up at home and try and force mistakes. We make mistakes, the crowd gets fired up and we shrink.
