I don't disagree the stat line was unflattering for them but again it was two lucky deflected goals on the last 20 minutes that decided the match. It was both funny and disturbing when the camera would find Pogba on the bench obviously trapped in his own personal hell. I have the feeling that if Man U fired Mourinho this morning almost any competent coach could turn them around quickly.
