    Can someone tell me what's wrong with MU players amidst LVG selection and tactical inconsistencies? There is no leader because Rooney is injured! LVG was so proud that MU players fight back and got a replay at West Ham. Should we be so happy? IMO I think not at all, in fact the opposite, MU players should do some soul searching. Luckily, West Ham did not have the strength to defend and waste some time and held out with just 10 mins to go and paid the price to let us equalized. Look at the statistics, 18 shots with only 2 on target versus West Ham 12 with 3 on target. Plain pathetic display by MU, the lack of fluency and commitment in their very average display indeed. Compare who we have in our squad against West Ham. Its ten thousand miles apart. With the calibre of MU players, we should be a few notches better than West Ham but sadly see for yourself how MU play, time and time again Martial lost out while dribbling, Felliani, Rashford and Lingrad did not know where and what they were doing. LVG strategy did not work at all. The starting line up were totally out of place. One goal behind and we did savage work. Rather than what LVG lamented that we tried to win the game, rubbish, its fortunate we drew instead.

    United will beat Liverpool 3-0 to overturn the deficit from the first leg and progress to the next round of the Europa League.

    What a ridiculous dream I had last night....

    No bite in our players. IMO most will agree, the responsibility is on LVG shoulders, not the players, not injuries, not even with a superb goal keeper we have that prevented so many lost situations in games this season. As EPL still has 4 placings for UCL next season and we are just 4 points from Man City in fourth, we will need to win all remaining games as Europa route is gone. Put our heart and soul for the team, we still can do it. Nothing is impossible. View from the game, Liverpool deserved going through. Their passing, control and support for all team players clearly ahead of us. Especially Milner and Sakho, to me, are both deserved the Man of Match in this game. So solid, cut out so many MU passing and read the game so well. Coutinho's goal was exquisitely done. From replays, it surprised De Gea with the shot passed him.

    Its really crunch time MU, not only they need to win all remaining games, they faced tough opponents. Hope they can win tom morning game, 0-1 will do. Don't bother if its a referee error or otherwise, we just have to win it. LVG has to show his goods now or never. If we loose, LVG will leave before a bad legacy upon himself having managed MU and failed miserably.

    Derby starting XI: De Gea, Darmian, Smalling, Blind, Rojo, Schneiderlin, Carrick, Lingard, Mata, Martial, Rashford.

    subs: Romero, Fosu-Mensah, Valencia, Fellaini, Schweinsteiger, Januzaj, Memphis.


    Two changes to the side that faced Liverpool, with Darmian and Schneiderlin coming in for Varela and Fellaini.

    MU played well this morning. Luck was also on our side. Replay showed that Smalling IMO warranted a 2nd yellow card, however referee did not give. I am very surprised by Man City lackluster display, with a goal down, there were no sense of urgency, no will to equalize, Aguero, David silva, yaya toure, sterling, navas, all played poorly. Overly dribbling by Aguero, midfield was not there and nobody was willing to commit and lead the attack, a lot of passing but no finishing; Many sky rocketed shots not on target. Nobody in Man City is able to mark Martial. Good for us. Rashford goal was brilliant, deserve all the credit for him. Keep it up MU.
