“They’re whinging at one another! They are a bunch of whingebags! A bunch of whingebags! Watch them on that pitch, truthfully, arms within the air, complaining about every little thing! Truthfully, they’re completely surprising on the market in that first half. They obtained the final supervisor the sack! Ralf Rangnick will not be going to get the sack, he is solely had a couple of weeks with them, however truthfully, they will get quite a lot of managers the sack, that lot, in the event that they stick with it like that.”

“The 4-2-2-2 has been a battle from an attacking viewpoint however l additionally thought that towards Norwich [in United’s previous game] that there have been indicators you might isolate Manchester United’s full-backs.
“I felt for Diogo Dalot tonight. He was uncovered at occasions however he caught to his activity. However let’s be clear, the 2 centre-halves for Man Utd have been completely atrocious. Harry Maguire is having a nightmare season and Varane is simply simply coming again into it.
“I do not know any staff in Europe that performs this method rather well. It is a large ask on the full-backs.”
