I’m worried for Mourinho because he has a history of going sour when the results turn.

If he’s not picking Ndombele and LC when we’re winning then it will be accepted. If we’re losing AND playing like shit like we did tonight and he’s picking players who actively want to leave and have no contract left to run over very expensive international players with long contracts then that bodes very badly indeed.

Sanchez, Sissoko and Winks will never make it in Jose's ideal team.

Winks is no good against teams that press hard. Sanchez is no good under pressure and makes too many rash decisions. Sissoko is just not up to it at the level we require. But then he never has been.

Am I the only one that has no confidence in any of out central midfielders? Weird but I just couldn’t tell you the strongest 2 to play, none really stand out.

Ndombele has shown glimpses but still gives it away when he has played and stamina is a big issue.
At least ndombele passes forward though. Sissoko and winks are the masters of the backwards pass

Stupid mistakes cost us. Man u didn't really threaten too much in the second half. If sissoko wasn't so fucking stupid, a draw away at old Trafford isn't a terrible rest
They played off the second half like it was a cup final.

The pen was a very close call. It looked like one live and there was a little contact so VAR didn’t overrule. We were given the benefit of the doubt on the Alli goal.

I don’t see why we didn’t get a little more time at the end but I doubt it would’ve changed the outcome.
Different thread maybe but surely var should be there to rule out the pens that are not really pens.

I can see why the ref gave it in real time. On 2nd view I can't see why it's not being spoken about as such a soft pen and potentially not really a pen.

Rashford was great and his pass made space for others, our forward line didn't do this

That triangle of Aurier at RB Sanchez at RCB with Sissoko at RDM is an accident waiting to happen. Far to many mistakes in them to go through 90 minutes without at least one of them messing up.
This is spot on.

Of all that, you actually blame this on Eriksen? Get a fucking grip.
He did fine today, like he did vs. Olympiakos..
Where did I blame him for the loss?

It was a statement, watch the game back and you’ll see the numerous times where he just lets the United players just go past him without any effort whatsoever.

It’s like playing with a man down, he should be embarrassed.

Worrying performance. Why is GLC not being started. New Moussa Saib ?

Ndombele looks unfit.

Sessegnon - give him a chance ahead of Lucas.


It was like watching us at Utd 2004/5/6/7/8

Sanchez worries me but I won't be too hard on defenders until we get a proper DM and RB.

Mourinho's going to have a tantrum in January if he doesn't get exactly what he wants. I'll be buying popcorn by the tonne at that point.

Rashford trying so hard to be on top of Kane today. Kane watched the game past by without any significant effort.

He ain't getting any free pass from me. Far too many now.
his constantly dropping deep would make sense if we played a flat 3 in midfield with wingers pushing high up but doing what he does in our system just crowds out our attacking midfielders and gives them no forward option
