Excellent tactical analysis. I felt from the start that we would struggle with 2 defensive midfield players in Britton and Cannas. They started well pushing up onto Carrick and Cleverley but they fell back after about 25 minutes which allowed Carrick in particular to dictate play. Williams and Chico just could not deal with the interchange and movement of Wellbeck and in particular Van Persie who dragged poor Williams all over the place and into positions he wasn't comfortable with. I have been critical of Rangel in the past about not being able to stop crosses coming in and in this game he was poor at this again. Evra in particular had a field day against him. Overall Moyes did his usual job against us, stifling our midfield and not allowing us the space to play in. Much has been said about Cleverley not being good enough but I thought he did a superb job in an unsung position of breaking play up. Time and again we failed to get passes through their defence and Vidic was excellent at blocking. We have to learn from this chastening experience and against Man U we must move the ball quicker to allow our wide men the space to move into.
