We’re not going to win every game. We take the point from a poor performance and move on. Beat Spurs

I have to tell my son this.

We win an abnormal amount of games. The need to over analyse the first time we drop points since March will will be hard to resist..

The big positives for today are the impact of our progressive attacking mids.

We were terrible today, but we went to OT and got a point. 8 wins out of 9, we just need to make sure we don't dwell on it and start another long run of wins.

OT is a bit of a bogey ground for us and they played like it was their cup final. I'll take a point. But...we ain't playing that well - we almost dropped points at home against LCFC - and have nicked some results. I would like to see us smash someone to get a bit of swagger back.

Its shit like this that make it hard for us to get anything there. They're allowed to get away with murder half the time but we cant touch them for fear of fouling. How this didnt even get a card is beyond me.

And moments later while Lallana was on the ground one of them rats kicked the ball right at him. 2 yellow card incidents, not a sniff from the ref

Is there a more odious cunt than Ashley Young?

Don’t see it with Rashford. Loads of fanfare but he’s streaky as fuck and not even a flat truck bully like Lukaku.

Pleased we got out of that place with a point, worst fixture of the season and it was their cup final. 8 wins and a draw so far is bloody amazing and we’ve not hit top gear yet either

Rashford is an interesting one, apparently 35% of his goals come against the other top 6 sides, so he seems to do it in the big games but perhaps not as often as he should against other sides.

He's a counter attack merchant and probably wouldn't make it at a proper top 6 side. Luckily for him he's not at a top 6 side so might post good numbers

He doesn't even post god numbers though. He got 13 goals in 47 games last season, 13 in 52 games the season before that, and 11 in 53 games the one before that.

His career average so far is a goal every 3.7 games.

He's still only 21 so plenty of time to improve, but that record for a team like Man Utd isn't massively impressive IMO.

I think losing the lead last season has us fans on edge and no doubts it is in the players minds. 6 points ahead of Man City after 9 games... we should be over the moon! But they are so good that we know we have given them a chance now to really put the pressure on. Obviously we need to win games but when we play City, we need to beat them. Would be huge psychologically.

The Spurs game net week will be a tough one, they aren't playing well and results have gone against them but we haven't been playing well in the last 4 or 5 but have been getting results. I am hoping this is our sticky patch and we are so good that we have managed to grind out results whilst playing poorly.. time will tell. We need to get ourselves back into gear, the international break is a nightmare for clubs and results can be very unpredictable after them. I wonder were we too cocky going into that united game? Maybe this is a little reality check that we needed.

I am not on the edge, maybe you generally are when we don't do well.

We never do well at Old Trafford and it's annoying when it's a yearly occurance, but it's a fact we cannot avoid. It's arguably our toughest away game. We've come through it with a point, which is not a bad result even if it can be seen as two points dropped given their current predicament. A Derby is a derby and these are always tricky due to the emotion involved. I thought we never played with our heads yesterday.

On the positive side, scoring so late on has got to be a real pick-up for our boys and a stomach-wrenching moment for theirs, so whilst our mental state will be on the up, hopefully they will be demoralised again

In reality the game v Citeh at Anfield in November will be massive. I just hope that the 6 point gap is maintained (or bettered) until we play them. Then that will be one where Man City will have to go out and try to win. Pep will say that he tries to win every game but they will really have to try to take the game to us there.

I just can't see us not getting a run at their defence - especially at Anfield.

Not sure where to put it but 7 nominees in the squad for Balon D’Or - surprisingly no Robbo


Full list below with Mahrez and Benzema

Robertson should definitely be in there. Not sure about Wijnaldum though.

Alot of this seems to be on the basis of performances in the CL Wijnaldum's 2 goals vs Barcelona will probably have had a huge influence, TAA had a couple of assists in that game including that corner which was very memorable. Robertson dissed Messi, that probably didn't help his case with the powers that be

A win against Citeh will be a proper marker of intent for this season. Spurs will be tough but if we score early I think we’ll win comfortably.

Our biggest problem this season has been taking time to get going. We need to come out flying and grab a goal or two in most games before game management. City are pretty much putting teams away easily and early other than their two ‘blips’.

Utd away may well be one of our toughest away games each season, the frustration is more obvious when City put 4, 5 or 6 past them... they never seem to struggle against them.

Might improve them.

Zinchenko is poor and Fernandinho will probably play dm now Stones and Ota are fit again.

Otamendi is never going to improve them, in fact i think Guardiola recognises this... he dropped him for the Rodri against Palace... he confirmed that in the prematch interview.

Mendy is just back from a long injury, a good player but won't have fitness or "rhythm" yet.
