Bad defending again
Manchester United fans expect very little when it comes to their defence.
In fact, they go into games wondering just who will be the one to make the fatal mistake.
This time, it was Ashley Young.
The full back was so good last time his side played Liverpool and he was tasked with marshalling Mo Salah.
He kept Salah quiet and United got away without seeing a goal conceded.
However, this time out, United weren’t so lucky.
Young was sent for a hot dog early on by Salah, and things didn’t get any better.
He was also at fault for Liverpool’s goal, which was scored by Sadio Mane.
United fans were fuming, and it’s yet another example of their side making errors that are Sunday League level.
Already 16 points behind Liverpool, it was far from ideal.
Luckily, Alisson Becker made a massive error for Jesse Lingard to score, and level things up.

Unfortunate that Ashley Young used all his power up credits on that one match last season vs Mo Salah #LIVMUN

It’s brilliant movement too from Mane, Ashley Young, who had just clattered Salah, switched off and lost him. #LFC first league goal v United here since March 2015.

Either Ashley Young forgot how to mark or was still so tired from the previous sequence that he was just like “yeah, I’ll let Mané make that inside run and hope it turns out OK.”
