Struggle

We will find it hard all season to break down teams who sit back as we just don’t have good enough players to break down opposition defences who sit back and are tightly packed.

This will be a recurring theme this season and we will pay for not signing another CM and RW. On the counter we will be good. But today and Wolves showed us we will find it difficult.

Lingard needs to be reserved for big games, utterly useless otherwise.

It was a negligent transfer window. We’ll be facing the same issues we’ve had for six years yet again this coming season.

You conceded two goals against a team that were recently nicknamed Crystal Palace nil, I'm not sure your issue is in attack. Lindelof is poor, Shaw a sick note and why anybody, never mind three managers in a row, thinks it's a good idea to play Ashley Young at left back is beyond me.

On a positive note, I thought Mctominay was very good. I see him being slated a lot on here but he looks a player to me.

Thought McTominay did well again. Gave the ball away a couple of times but that’s not abnormal when you’re involved so much. Young was arguably our best player today - genuinely.

No part of the side is perfect - far from it - but attack has been an issue these last two games. Too predictable and one-dimensional.

I thought James was by far and away our best player today. Lindelof was poor on their goal and whilst I rate him as a decent centre-back, it's the same goal he gave away against Huddersfield in another embarrassing defeat two years ago. He has to get the basics right and serial duals are as basic as it gets for a centre back.

The biggest issue was a total lack of creativity though. Their keeper didn't make a single save in the entire game. Embarrassing

Your attack is too predictable and too static. No inside runs between the cb's and fullbacks from your
wide attackers or diagonal runs like the city wingers do.

Last 2 games we missed about 6 great chances that even a 6 year old would expect to score with any composure. We made sitters look impossible.

Expected points 7.93 for Man City vs Man Utd 7.11 and Liverpool next with 5.85. To get such high expected points means you have to completely outplay the opposition in all 3 games.

Or you just select random metrics and numbers that don’t mean anything, before or after so makes no difference to anyone ever.

This is absolute bollox. You can't expect sh!t in football as it is the lowest scoring sport in the world which is why you get shocks so often.

Man Utd are rammal and that perhaps mark your expected points on that instead. I expect Utd to get between 60 and 65 points.

No it doesn't. It means you missed two penalties.
