Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United drew 1-1 at Old Trafford with West ham united. The result saw Mourinho’s side record a fourth straight draw at home; the first time this has happened to Manchester United in the Premier League.
The hammers took the lead through Sakho heading Payet’s sublime cross past De Gea, and Ibrahimovic responded for the red devils in the same manner, by getting on the end of Pogba’s cross.
The Special One, was sent to the stands for kicking a water bottle after Pogba was booked for what was clearly a dive. The yellow card shown to the world’s most expensive player means he will miss the quarter-final League Cup match at Old Trafford against West ham on Wednesday night.
Alarms are now ringing in the red half of Manchester over their current form in the league. Pundits, fans, and football lovers everywhere had all tipped the club to challenge and win the English Premier League with the caliber of players and the manager they brought into the club at the start of the season. It felt like their fast-fading glory was finally going to be restored.
However, Manchester United, who have struggled since Sir Alex Ferguson resigned 4 years ago, is on the verge of being written off as a top team in the English Premier League with the rise of Liverpool back into the top 4, and the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal, and Tottenham not willing to give up their spot as they keep on challenging for the title.
It is also worth mentioning that Manchester United has yet to record a win against any of the top 4 teams this season. Losing two and drawing two.
We wonder when Manchester United fans will proudly sing “Glory, Glory, Man United” again.
