And, most importantly, once again leaving the most expensive, and, arguably, best player on the bench the entire game against an opponent of the highest caliber. Yeah, it was a bit of bad luck that they had to swap in Bailly for Smalling right before kick-off, but still, the real trouble with the team wasn't the back line.

Standing 6th after almost a full half-season, one has to think it's been done with smoke and mirrors. How likely is it that the rest of the season will produce substantially better results?
And those two game deciding lucky deflected goals for Liverpoo. I get that things are bad at Man U and Mourinho is evolving into paranoid 1944 Hitler, but Man U should have gotten a draw today and that is a good result for a visiting side.
