Why can't we play like that in the PL?

We do, we have just been very unlucky. There will be good & there will be bad days, but it will come good.

Just hope we can make some ground up today and convert some of the good football we've been playing into goals.

Especially after the result from Istanbournemouth.

He should have been sent off, it was a horror. Mourinho clearly likes him but I think he's a liability.

He's a nutcase. There are no circumstances these days when a two footed tackle is acceptable. Evens up the Zlatan foul from the West Ham keeper.

This is an awful, awful game of football. Pogba looks off the pace.

Pogba off for Mata or Fellaini would put this game to bed.

To be fair to me, I wanted the sub making when we were still trying to score a second.

Everton probably deserved a point, they worked DDG hard second half.

Pogba is more Carlton Palmer than Patrick Viera.

My exact words to my wife, 10 minutes before the penalty. "I am fed up of mourinhos negative tactics by trying to hold on to a 1.0 lead, it will end in tears with a lucky goal or penalty" & again it happened. His substitute confirmed my worst fears.

Mourinho looks and sounds so miserable, can't believe he is enjoying football at the minute. He was miserable enough at Chelsea last year and doesn't look much happier now, he doesn't seem like the character he was a few years ago.

He was the wrong manager for the club, he's a manager who takes a club that is 98% there and gives them a little bit more. As he has demonstrated previously, when it starts to go wrong (or he takes over as team where it has gone wrong) he hasn't got a clue.

I didn't like to say that and risk upsetting any Man U fans that still browse or post here. I know he was keen to go there but I think he's the wrong manager for them right now. If he acts the same way with the players as he does with the press he will never lift them!

0-2 away win & no comments? Great goal by Mkhitaryan. We played well away from home. Now for Sunday...

He's really starting to look a fantastic player. Lovely goal. Need a second goal, otherwise we are going to concede in the last 10 for another draw! Really good first half - hopefully keep it up. Only negative from me is understanding how Darmian gets on ahead of Blind?

Ibra has worked so hard up front today with not much joy.

We're getting nervy, but I think we've played well so far.

This ref is abysmal. Sided with Spurs most of the game, we should have had free kicks & penalties given. Roll on live video ref's & replays, that will get rid of dirty ref's.
