That ball wasn't a Penalty, also welcome to world of football, because in another scenario Mata would have scored the third and the own goal would have been useless.
How can anyone find something to criticize for yesterday is baffling. We played a perfect game from first to last minute. Destroyed them in first half and defended brilliantly in second one. Liverpool got zero chance to score even when in possession. There's not half arsed chance I can mention for them. We were in full control of the game and the game could have lasted till now and they wouldn't have scored yet.
Football is game of transitions and it was clear Liverpool were going to commit players more forward after being 2-0 down. Everyone predicted that. We still nullified them and let them control possession aimlessly. That was Mourinho at his peak game.
I’m not criticising the performance, im just wondering why we couldn’t have pushed forward like the first half. The Fellaini incident most definitely was a pen by the way and when the player coming off for him scored 2 goals earlier in the game it would be a massive talking point today.
You’re right though it’s all if’s and but’s at the end of the day we won, I would have loved it if we carried on like the first half that’s all because it was the best I’ve seen us for ages.
