That was a tough watch I went in hoping right to the end hoping we could nick 1 and they might collapse but we got well and truly battered.
With the exception of ddg possibly lukaku and sanchez had their worst game of the season.
Obviously with the line up he went to attack and that all went out the window after 10 seconds .
Spurs were st home in a must win game and were up for it and we were beaten and bullied all over the pitch.
Martial had one of his beginner days.
Smalling was obviously drunk.
Jones who somehow normally makes himself look good by recovering from his own mistakes had a shocker.
Matic was Annonaymus
Pogba looked unfit from the begging for some reason
I though sanchez was good but played too deep in last 20 mins
Lukaku was not too bad and was always trying
Jessie not in the game after 20 mins.
Young worst show of season I thought shaw deserved to start
Fellaini obviously hurt.
Mata should have started imo he has been very good lately and is often the glue that moulds the.

Ken,

Like you say, was all lost in the first 10 seconds, Jose must be furious, spurs played very well and were never going to let us back in. Not the end of the world just annoying that we lose another big game, not a habit we want to be in but one we need to sort out quickly.

Yeah i agree gds. Just so unusual to see every player so fast below par I the same game. Lack of leadership lack of urgency lack of technique lack of speed and composure.
I will predict the team now for Seville away. Ddg toni young lindelof Jones herrera matic pogba mata sanchez lukaku.

Tough night that can happen away at spurs atm I suppose.

I honest thought after the 1st 5 min we would go on to win we looked great going forward but still a bit iffy at the back.

Once the 2nd went in we looked dead and proceeded to get worse for the rest of the game.

A very disappointing evening all in all.

Well played spurs though the looked very good .

Not to throw all the players under the bus, but I think none of them turned out for the game last night. I think they either took it lightly, or just didn't recover from the goal that we conceded in the opening seconds.

I really think that Shaw should have started the game, he's looked solid in the last couple of games, and maybe he could have been good last night as well. Matic was a mere bystander, I think he will know that by his standards, this was probably the worst game he has had, in any shirt, let alone United.

As Ken pointed out, Martial looked like he was playing for the very first time at such a level, I'd expected him to make life slightly more difficult for Trippier, but that didn't happen.

Someone had suggested a couple of days back that with the arrival of Sanchez we could have a midfield of three, with Pogba playing slightly on the left and Herrera and Matic through the middle. I think that could have worked today. We could have had a front three of Lingard, Lukaku and Sanchez with the other three in the middle.

On a side note, Alli should have been sent off for the ridiculous tackle, this kind of behaviour and attitude might not be the best thing for him.
