Apart from a few fluffs in front of goal, I thought Ibra worked hard tonight but he was dropping so deep because Rashford did not work out. Rooney was equally anonymous when he came on and things only started improving once Mata showed up.

We're about where we were this time last year, but we are heading in the right direction at least. Tonight is a missed opportunity and the old Fergie line of 'there'll be a reaction' needs to appy for the next match.

The problem is we have had too many matches like the one tonight, one or two is forgivable, but now I've had enough of this ****. It's not Mourinhos fault, it's the players. Most need to up there game a LOT or **** off.

...well, they've got to play better than they did against us, so, in your current form, I'd be a bit worried!

...yep, we're dropping far too many points to be taken seriously as CL contenders! I know it's all 'ifs' and 'buts'...but, had we not ********** up last night and at Stoke we'd be a point off 2nd place (...conveniently ignoring our crappy GD )

...annoying ain't it!

This is a poor and ugly game! Has Rashford forgotten how to go past people, he just crosses or passes in this game

...and good goal

Up until 40 min utes it was dire. Then two good goals. Mata very lucky.

He looks a bit lost, doesn't he? He's one that needs to trust his instinct a bit more. He's unplayable when he goes at people, but if he's not going to do that, I'd rather play Martial.

Can we play leicester every week?! Good win, shame we drew top many recently, otherwise we would be further up the table.

True, but Leicester are no Burnley or Hull.

Is it worse than Liverpool's recent record at Anfield?

Well, you've won 1 game out of 10 played so far this year...and that was against the mighty Plymouth! You appear to be in freefall mode whilst Spurs are unbeaten so far this year... ...I'll stick with a Spurs win

...of course, you'll go and ruin the weekend by smashing them now
