Are Man Utd playing today

Just the one loss in October then but unfortunately that one loss was to newly promoted Huddersfield Town in what was a terrible day. I never have any issues if we lose, although of course it hurts at the time of the final whistle and when you leave the ground but if the lads have performed then I can eventually cope with it. When there is no performance and we lose that really hurts, I was at Huddersfield and that is exactly how I felt heading back to the coach in the rain.

The injury to Jones early on didn’t help on the day as he’s been one of our best performers this season, but you have to be able to cope with stuff like that and we just didn’t. His replacement Lindelof of course had a terrible game and was at fault at some point in both their first half goals. I’m sure Lindelof will except that himself, Mourinho too but give the lad a break, he’s made the mistakes and he will surely learn from that and know not to do it again. How many mistakes did Rio and Vidic make on occasions when they were a lot more established? Not too many but they still made them. Lindelof will be fine, I’m sure of that as he looks good, but he has to be patient as currently Jones and Bailly are ahead of him. As for Smalling, he should’ve been covering his partner better for Huddersfield’s second goal and he knows that himself too.

Some other performances weren’t great in October either, including the 0-0 against Liverpool but League Cup and Champions League wins were all secured to keep our progress in both those competitions going. A gritty and late 1-0 win over Spurs was crucial though and we have to be maintain our current excellent home record for as long as possible.
