    Best half of football we've played all season. Evans makes such a huge difference for us.

    Maguire may have been fit to start but he certainly isn't sharp and Iheanacho has caught him out on a few occasions, including the fatal one. He should never have started and it just looks like another poor management decision.

    Apart from him, Leicester are just pressing us off the ball with ease. If one team is 4th and the other 13th, you'd think they were the other way around. Commentary are saying our midfield has been completely non-existent, but I'd argue that Matic has at least won a few balls in there. It's our passing from the back 4 which has been woeful. Sancho had a good start to the game but we haven't been able to get the ball over to him since.

    Great goals from Greenwood and Tielemans though, absolute top class strikes from the pair of them.

    Tielemans didn't mean it. Surely.

    United have been even worse than expected, the midfield is a sieve, Matic invisible, Sancho hasn't turned up again, Pogba playing like we're 4 - 0 up. As ever it's all down to an individual moment, good or bad, Greenwood scoring out of the blue, then Pogba plays a United free kick inexplicably back into our own box, Lindelof panics and knocks it too short to Maguire, Maguire's asleep - goal. Both teams could be in front, neither really deserves to be.

    The short pass came from De Gea, but it wasn't a million miles away so all Maguire had to do was come towards it. Instead he stood there and let it meekly roll towards him. Matic has managed to sweep up a couple of balls in the middle especially from Maddison, but his supposed passing and dictation of tempo has been completely missing (yet again), granted.

    We're not going to win this game with pot shots from 30 yards out lads, ffs.

    Pogba is doing nothing to warrant the wages he's supposedly being offered

    Pogba just gives away needless free kicks every game

    He wouldn't start for me. Supposedly world class record signing who can't hold onto the ball. Doesn't want to sign a new contract either. Need to move on from him, then

    It's like we think it's still covid struggle ball, no intensity in how we play

    Ffs what is a guy with the experience Ronaldo has doing offside there?

    Let's not talk about the finish

    Simply not good enough
