    Draw isn't the end of the world. We've still had a great start and you can't win them all. Stoke is always our bogey team. I'd be happy with top 3 and decent champions league run this year . Another summer transfer window and serious challenge next year. That was my expectations from the start of the year and they haven't changed.

    Gave a poor team too much respect, paid for it with 2 points. Awful.

    Cost by our two centre back. We were poor but for some odd reasons it's their game of the season the inbreds. Move on.

    Get us some fecking fullbacks and do it fast, we are effectively devoid of two attacking outlets that any other top team has.

    Sad to say this, but this will be symptomatic of our play this season against the stronger teams, and part of the blame will lie with Mourinho. Our biggest problem by far last year was our attacking front 3, in both creating chances and scoring them. All we did to improve was replace a pretty good striker (Ibrahimovic) with a slightly better one. We did nothing on the wings - all we have there is promising talent but no genuine top class attacking talent to win games for us. Mata, Rashford, Martial and Mikhi are all currently second tier attackers, whilst our rivals have players like Mane, Aguero and Hazard who are top level attackers.

    We really did need to sign someone who can actually dribble well and stretch play, even someone like Mahrez who's a natural dribbler would've been a help I feel in giving us a different option. It doesn't help either that our full backs aren't playing well at the moment either and not giving us any attacking width (expected of Darmian, but not from Valencia).

    Crap again after the international break.

    No one played well. Jose changed the system and we looked worse off. Made the subs too late.

    3/4 games, we've scored our 1st goal off a set-piece. A lot of problems from last season still persist.

    Such an annoying result.

    So disappointing. We can't every game but this is not one we should've lost. We beat ourselves today.

    Wake up call for the team. Important we focus and win every game till Liverpool now.

    Edit: Apologies we didn't lose. It feels like it though.

    CB's decided to play like a pair of donkeys. Never winning a game if that happens.

    Outrageous at the end, Wimmer laying down perfectly fine with his head up watching the match, ball goes out to Martial in promising position and suddenly he decides he has a match-stopping worthy head injury

    Our weaknesses exposed today. Valencia and Darmian are nowhere near the quality demanded of full-backs at the top level and our ballplayers Mata and Mkhi are far too lightweight. They may have good numbers but they don't shape the game like the best players in their role.

    Too often we resort to lumping the ball up to Lukaku - it looks crap and it's easy to defend against.

    We'll get top four this year but we won't challenge City for the title.

    Some clown college defending. Bailly had a very poor game and Jones, Pogba & Matic weren't great either.

    Typical off-balance match after the international break with an opposition who had two weeks to train with many of their first team players. Top of the table and things can improve and will improve. Roll on Champions League.
