Mourinhos Away Record so far against top 6.

Wins - 1 (Arsenal - could of been any score! )

Draws - 3 (Liverpool x2, Man city)

Loses - 5 (Ars, Spurs x2, Chelsea x2)

If he wants to win the title then this is where he needs to improve!

Home Record - W3 D2 L2.

We lack control in the big games all the time, get dominated and looks like we're playing with 10 men. Jose has to start playing with a midfield 3, especially against the top teams. Pogba and Matic in midfield just doesn't work vs the top teams.

I think there have been two issues with our performances against the other top six sides.

The first is our midfield gets over run far too easily. Matic doesn't have the athleticism to cover two midfielders and Pogba doesn't have the discipline of the defensive game to help out. This can be fixed by bringing in an extra midfielder to stop us being over run in the middle.

However, when we do that we end up with the second issue we have against the other top six sides. We lack creativity in the final third.

Now we have Sanchez we shouldn't lack creativity, and last night's game was crying out for an extra midfielder to slow Spurs down and stop them dictating the game.

As much as I am a fan of Martial I think he should have been dropped for Herrera. Midfield three of Matic, Pogba and Herrera or even Fellaini with a front three of Sanchez left, Lukaku through the middle and Lingard right.

I also agree with the poster down the page saying how we look stronger defensively with Shaw at LB rather than Young.

I don't think matic is mobile enough and pogba needs to work harder off the ball .
It's been the same all season but you can get at our cm even when we play 3 .
Jose has played 4231 most his career a lot if teams have and do a lot of teams do, but you have to have the right pair .

Got post Shappy totally agree pal. I hope lessons have been learnt for the Champs League!

We also seem to be conceding stupid goals against the top teams, the two goals City scored at OT resulted from mistakes as did the two y'day, maybe our players just can't handle pressure? They seemed scared every time spurs started running at us. Matic was exposed in midfield, you can't expect him to single-handedly contain the likes of Eriksen and Alli, even Son, on his own. Its annoying playing like that with that formation, the solution (433) to the problem is right there yet its not being used.

You can't just go out and play do what ever you want .
Pogba had a defensive responsibility last night, didn't fulfil it so got subbed .
Against the better teams you some times have to do things a bit different .

If we play 3, matic, Herrera an pogba then what midfield options do we have on the bench?

Carricks been out awhile with health issues.

McTom is just starting out.

Fellaini I wouldn't trust to change a light bulb never mind a game.

We really need two signings in the summer.

I think we should be playing 3-5-2 against big sides away!

Bailly-Smalling-Jones

Valencia-Herrera-Matic-Pogba-Young

Lukaku-Sanchez

I remember playing it against chelsea in FA cup last year and looked good until herrera got sent off!
