    It does feel like he thinks he’s playing in an exhibition game

    I don’t see it exactly like that, they haven’t done much. Not too hard to score and pelanty and own goal.

    The difference today felt much, much more than Aurier. Woeful all round.

    Horrible performance. Really disappointed in it. Not once was I off my seat thinking we’d score or not once was I excited by us. It was just an abject, dreadful performance.

    I don’t blame the players so won’t even get into individual performances. This ones on Jose and I hope he accepts that post match and doesn’t throw any player under the bus. Against the stronger teams I can see the logic in playing as we do but against anyone outside of Liverpool and City, I don’t believe it’s the right way to play.

    We got what we deserved today and many more performances and results like this and things could turn nasty.

    Yeah, generally Leicester have just played with more belief and conviction, passion.

    Mourinho's lack of rotation and odd subs have to take some blame today. But we were unlucky. A needless foul and pen thanks for var/aurier.

    We needed a couple of fresh men today. Easy to say now! Doherty, Vinicius and Bale from the start.

    We still haven't fully resolved our midfield issues. We don't have a strong partnership yet. Ndombele blows hot and cold, and Mourinho hasn't got him settled/playing the way he wants.

    We played well against pool, and this was an unlucky loss, so I'm not too worried. Just need to use the squad to better effect.

    Aurier was excellent up to the brainfart.

    Exceptionally poor. Two very brick goals given away. But what a completely lacklustre performance. Very disappointing

    He's bloody awful defensively. He never challenges from the front always side on or chasing back to our because he has 0 reading of the play.

    If there were one player I would have no concern of being injured it would be him.

    @milo Kane for me. He's not been great, but worked well I thought.

    spot on. Jose needs to get some dynamism into this squad. the one trick pony of counterring with Kane/Son partnership falls flat and the team will follow. Pish.

    Well they played counter after Aurier suicidal stupidity
    Hence why we had more possession from then on
    Everything came from countering
    Aurier doesn’t make the mistake and I couldn’t see them scoring
    So it yet again comes down to pure stupidity

    Up until the pelanty the pattern was normal, thought we conceded possession but actually had the better situations. We don’t have another gear when we need to make something happen, two players on the pitch who’s second touch is a tackle and one who is a passenger playing exhibition football. Lots for Mourinho to react too, he’ll be grateful no fans in today
