Manchester United were pummelled by Chelsea this weekend, and the resident Red Devils here in the Transfer Tavern are still in a sombre mood….
The Blues tore straight through United and were absolutely ruthless against their powerless rivals.
The 4-0 defeat leaves United 6 points behind the joint leaders City, Arsenal and Liverpool.
Worryingly though, the Red Devils are also 5 points behind 4th and 5th as Spurs and Chelsea are locked on 19 points apiece.
Mourinho has some serious issues to sort out.
He still doesn’t seem to know his perfect XI and some players are not performing to their capability.
There is a distinct lack of pace up front and the defence looks shaky at the best of times.
If they want to be challenging at the top end of the table come the end of the season they are going to need a miraculous change in fortune.
They are winless in three Premier League games but they face a Burnley side who seem very shy when they’re on the road.
United need to start picking up points soon and you’d imagine they will have ear marked this upcoming game as a good chance to get back to winning ways.
Win or lose, Mourinho still has a lot to do and the punters here at the Tavern think he should dispose of these THREE United players in January….
