Christ they were poor though. Leicester needlessly gave away a penalty when there was no danger. Only for that, United wouldnít have scored had they played Ďtil Christmas.

That was a much needed win for United and the most impressive thing was keeping a clean sheet and restricting a decent side like Leicester to few clear cut chances.

Maguire,Wan Bissaka and Lindelof apart from that one error 1st half that almost led to a goal defended well. McTominay is improving with the more games he plays was probably United's best player today. Could have scored 3 set piece goals this afternoon but apart from the James,Mata chances it was struggle to create much from open play.  Fred looked lively when he came on, surely a better option than Matic  for the games ahead?

Another game and another penalty for Utd, this time scored.

If the earlier penalties in the season were dispatched accordingly, Utd would be sitting clear 2nd in table.

Clear penalty. A silly foul.

Utd have fallen back to non contenders.Just looking at our own Bobby getting his 50th league goal ,Fermino  true son of the KOP.
Sturridge chip at the weekend was worth the flights and hotel alone ,Mancs are not in our league anymore ! #YNWA

Someone likes fishing. United are still contenders technically speaking but there is no doubt they are a long way off Liverpool and City (as is everyone else) and they will struggle to make the top 4 and could conceivably not even make top 6 as the squad is continues to be rebuilt and deadwood cleared out.

I wont mind too much that Liverpool fans continue to slag off united's current malaise once their own side fail once again to win the premier league, the one prize they so desperately want.
This yew tree lad is on the Down gaa chat talking  nonsense also. Best to not take his contribution seriously.  You should see the idiotic post he made on intermediate and junior championships.

Itís not BS.

He nearly signed for Real 3/4 years ago. Then after a shite WC in 2018, nobody was sniffing after him. Real got Courtois instead. De Gea was pissing about over signing a deal, but nobody else was interested. De Gea clearly doesnít want to be at United by his behaviour this last few years.

He's been poor enough now, his options seemed to be Juve or PSG....nowhere else really for him to go at the type of cash he ended up getting.

So the "crisis" is over for a few more days! Probably United's worst performance or certainly in the worst two - both of which they won. Could very easily have won all 5. Hope he starts a few of the young lads on Thursday. If it goes pear shaped then it can still be recovered later in the group.

Two clubs with the opportunity of winning league titles and champions league contenders and PSG would likely offer him the same wages, in other words if he wanted to leave he would have done so by now.

His form was poor last season and that dip in form was one of the prime reasons why United missed on a top 4, theory has it his on going contracts dealings played a big part in his dip in form I suppose we'll find out if that is true now.
