    I'm at least happy to say that I expected Vertonghen to be skinned all evening by James, but he actually handled him well.

    Jose changed our shape back to a 4231 for most of the first 60 minutes and only switched to the lopsided 343 after Eriksen came on. I'm depressed with how poorly we played, too many players had bad nights and not enough turned up to outshine them. One thing is for sure though, Sissoko and Winks are not the answer in there. Jose gave them a go and saw the results. Let's hope he doesn't persist with them for a year like Poch did.

    It's been a few years since we were dominated like that by Man Utd. I can't recall it happening in recent seasons at least. It was like going 20 years back in time. And this is probably the worst team they've in 30 years. That says everything about how poor we were.

    Sadly, as near to 19th as we are to 4th

    Poch won't be smiling to himself, but he'll certainly be sitting back thinking 'yep there are bigger problems here than meet the eye'

    I think some fans have been lulled into thinking all we needed was a change of manager. The issues with the defensive midfield and to a certain extent with the full backs have not gone away. Jose is a fabulous manager but he’s not a miracle worker. We need to expect results like today until he can sort out the midfield issues at least.

    ...covering for Aurier who once again defended initially like a clam.

    9 points off 4th.

    Need players to replace Aurier Sissoko and Sanchez.

    Hope kane is not expected to play every game over xmas. Will be really sad if he even goes out to Germany next Wednesday.

    Also be good to get some of Sessegnon's speed onto the pitch.

    Well if the players we have are lacking, then Poch has to take some responsibility. Sanchez for £40m can't be called a success yet.

    Did we spend 100m in the summer?

    Problems he didn't manage to sort out in a rather long time.

    Gave them far too much time on the ball. Even when they gave up possession we gave it straight back to them. Too many had off games, poor first goal and a dodgy pen aside we were well beaten. And they aren't really that good. Frustrating and annoying.

    I think Sanchez is a very good defender but he needs players comfortable on the ball around him to enable him to release the ball quickly.

    The error cost us a goal early on and put us on the back foot.

    None of his saves that preceded were any great shakes.
