Really poor performance for such an important game. Never really got going, thought Sheffield United really got it spot on tactically, smothered our midfield and Barkley couldn’t have the influence on the game we need him too.

Having said that we did get in good areas, lost count of how many crosses we had but delivery was so poor.
Classic though isn’t it .

You’d almost rather have lost last week and drawn today.

Another valiant performance in defeat. Bit of a recurring theme in these games against the "top 6", we have been in all of those games at home but not got the points those performances really warranted largely through some individual mistakes.

First goal was a total howler, Bell has been great for us but this season he has made some absolutely horrendous individual errors that have cost us big time. Today of all games keeping it tight for 20 minutes and i really think the panic sets in with Man Utd and everything that goes with that shirt. They showed 0 ability to have control of the game through possession like a lot of the other big sides can, so keeping it tight was crucial and 30 seconds he has shot a massive hole in the entire game plan. Why i really wanted to see a left sided centre half option come in in January.

Fair play to him he bounced back and had a decent game post that error as we showed the usual never say die attitude. Sambi and Barkley are turely a special centre midfield pairing and that helped us steady things and give them a real game.

Dont like commenting on refs but thought Coote was the worst we have seen this season. Hate a ref with totally unearned arrogance and he has it in spades, totally bottled sending off Casemiro, and the game was just encapsulating what you get with the big teams. Nothing major major but every 50/50 goes one way. The 4 minutes injury time was a total and utter embarassment too. Arsenal & Liverpool we have 10+ minutes injury time but in both games we have been chasing for an equaliser against Chelsea and today the injury time is minimal. Not even trying to hide the bias.

Totally agree .

After the bad start you were well in the game but maybe didn’t create enough?

Agree on Casemiro - and it’s not the first time either .

As ever things like injury time do seem to be a lottery .

Could of been a lot worse than the final score suggests
Could have been a rugby score but for some bad finishing from the scousers and some inspired goalkeeping from kaminski…
Anyhoot…let’s keep our heads up and trust in rob…

We’ve got major injury issues piled up now, not sure we have enough fit centre halves to play the usual shape we want too and with Nakamba out long term Lokonga for a few week midfield is looking light too. Adebayo out too who was really growing into a pre jet league striker. Bit worried it’s all going to slip away into a damp squib of an end to the season a little bit, already tough ask with our best players available. I could see another hammering today

You do have to question a little bit the January business, we were in a strong position and didn’t really strengthen and kept players like Potts and Berry taking up a valuable squad place when in reality they aren’t likely to contribute meaningfully. I know it’s hard for us to recruit but in the current situation the hindsight view doesn’t look great
