Quite frankly anything less than a 5-0 win against Sunderland would feel like a defeat. Along with drawing far too many games at home, our inability to smash pathetic opposition has been our downfall this season. Not that far away, but then we have been saying that for 3 years. Was listening to the Everton v Leicester game and the commentators were lavish with their praise of Schneiderlin - they called him a rolls Royce of a player, which we never saw at Utd. What we need is stability and let Jose build a team. Of course Greisman and Sanchez would be a nice start in the summer!

It was easier just to coast out and win that one tonight.

Pogba does a lot of 'statistics' stuff right, but when you watch a game, it is hard to see what he does that actually shifts things forwards for the team. Plenty of times, he slows down possible breaks and lays a pass off: statistically, a pass completed, but in the real world and opportunity wasted. He'd have been an LVG wet dream!

Hands up, all those that didn't expect Anderlecht to score in the second half, now let me count them, ZERO. We are bloody useless. Control of the game my ass, we tippy tappy the ball around almost giving it away, we have a chance to break & then pass back, same old, same bloody old.

Vital that we step up tomorrow, but realistically it'll be a draw again.

It's a banker to put Utd down for a draw at the moment. Have to win tomorrow though.

I'm not sure I really like the way Mourinho has called out some of the underperming players, but the ones he's highlighted have been underperforming. Chelsea have been rubbish, but there are signs that a few egos may have been shaken a bit.

Fingers crossed for second half.

I saw you'd posted here and I just knew it wouldn't be "Aren't United playing well?"

I think you're getting a squeaky bum.

LOL not at all.

But good avoidance of being gifted points by poor refereeing ( and a poor Chelsea side ) again

I'm consistent in my opinion of the dreadful refereeing in England. Every team suffers from it, so depressingly, it evens itself out. It shouldn't be the case, but it is.

Where football is really wrong is when the rules of the competition are changed just to suit individual teams who aren't good enough to qualify for things under the rules everyone else had to play by.

Give it a break you idiot. The ref should have sent a couple of Chelsea cheats off.

Great stuff. 7 more league wins needed. Just don't go and draw against Burnley or Swansea!
