    I thought this too. Maybe not a complete smashing that will have fans doubting Solskjaer, a quick blast to go 2 nil up, control the game and rest on the ball before a late third off a promising move countered by us which will lead to delusions that it was a close game. Maybe a pen or close offside call to start it all off.

    Attack

    A month or two ago Spurs would have won hands down in this area because United were playing without confidence. Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Son Heung-min would all have been on José Mourinho’s theoretical shopping list, because the manager said so. United have done some catching up in recent weeks, however, with Marcus Rashford in particular showing his value and Romelu Lukaku becoming more effective. While Spurs are still more of a handful for defences, due to Kane’s accuracy, Alli’s elegant simplicity and Son’s cleverly channelled energy, perhaps a revived United deserve the benefit of the doubt.

    Verdict Draw

    :rolleyes:

    We won midfield and defence though, but Poch should definitely go there anyway.

    He loses all credibility as soon as he mentions lukaku as a plus, our second striker, son, is better than him. Its not even close ffs.

    Our big big problem is we look very tired and generally sluggish especially in the second halves of the past few premiership games.

    That and we're looking up not down so the pressure to get a result remains the same

    I think that we have been seeing games out, rather than running out of steam.

    Guardian is kidding about midfield. They have a rotated midfield. We just have Winks, Sissoko and Skipp.

    I’m hoping you are right.
    Rashford & Co will be well up for this.
    Chelsea should have been home and hosed with the amount of pressure they applied, thought we were well off colour again.

    I think this too.

    In fact I saw this as the reason we lost to Wolves more than the tiredness. I felt we were falling into that same trap vs. Chelscum in the Semi's before Kane's cute injury delay that gave time to regroup with Poch giving instructions during the break.

    All part of managing the game. Not something I'm keen on as it also invites pressure which in turn can get the fans a bit nervy (well at least this fan)...

    Have to see if we can close out the end of games as we see the elite teams do again and again.

    Tomorrow vs Manure will be a test of who wants it most imho. I hope it's us...

    ----------------Lloris-----------------
    --Trips - David - Toby - Rose--
    ---Sissoko - Winks - Dele-------
    --------Eriksen - Son---------------
    ---------------Kane-------------------

    Subs: Gazza, KWP, Foyth, Lamela, Skipp, Llorente, Moura


    That'll do it for me :)

    Get through this match, and we have a week's rest until Fulham. We need a break now; time to assess the fitness of the squad properly and rest those in need of rest.

    Jan should be back next weekend, hopefully Dier too. And if we don't sell Dembele, he could be in contention in February as well, if we're lucky. Barring new injuries, that should see us in a good position before the run in.

    I think we look shagged out. (Technical term;))
    Sissoko and Winks are working miracles.

    To think Sissoko would be our midfield saviour, LOL. But even he is looking tired, and we need to be able to rotate a the midfield.

    Dier would be useful, but he’s due back February?

    Funny thing is we've had plenty of games to give either (or others) a bit of a rest due to us smashing teams....even subbing them with 30 mins left.

    Not the Poch way though.

    BUT his way seems to work....so crack on.
