Defeat away to Man U, just as I had predicted
With our defence poor against Brighton and Man U needing to bounce back after being beaten by Newcastle, I predicted nul points. We were very flat in the first half and they took the lead in the 27th minute. In the second half we were much better and might have sneaked an equaliser. A De Gea clearance hit Toney and nearly bounced into the net and Schade was through one-on-one with De Gea and he tried to lift it over him but the keeper saved it. The game finished 1-0 to United. Although only two defeats in 17 matches it is only 2 points from the last three games. Up next are bang in-form Newcastle at home.
