Were it not for De Gea's blunder/If we hadn't gotten the point, would anyone really be okay with the result/performance? 

The performance really wasn't much of a difference to what we've seen in the big away games this season or in pretty much the whole season. Had possession but didn't create anything clear cut, not even one after De Gea's howler. In fact, we had 3 shots on target and 2 of them were from the goal - Rudiger's long range effort and then Alonso's goal. Toothless. Clueless. Hopeless. 

Says how low we've fallen that we are "forced" to accept the result as something okay/decent when any club with genuine ambition should be fuming of not turning over a United side who are horribly out of form. 

This. If it weren't for the howler, we would have lost yesterday. We had no clue going forward against the worst United side in decades.

Thank God that United are shite. Any other side who had better confidence than those sacks, would have beaten us.

Strongly disagree.

Just because Alonso scored from a De Gea blunder doesn’t mean now he’s better. Far enough, Alonso got the chance presented to him and he took it while we are not sure Emerson would. But the first 20 minutes when United were actually pressing, Alonso was getting torn apart like a piece of paper.

My point is that neither are good. 

People here on Sarri back because he did not pick Emerson over Alonso. Well after seeing that option I rather stick with Alonso then Emerson. And I see why Sarri picked him. 

Hence back to my point there is no better choice out there and Sarri must pick him because that is what the board gave him. 

I remember Conte wanted to get an upgrade over Alonso but they never did.

The fault is all on the board.

You must watch different game. United did not press us, they drop deep into their own half. The problem was we were not compact enough. The space between the lines were too big. 

They pressed us more in the 2nd half which we handled quite well. 

United was very agressive in the first 30min and we couldnt cope with that. We literaly had no midfield. Jorginho and Kovacic, they were lost.

Nah the problem was our pressing, we actually handled any press quite well these days. We can still do our build up. 

I am more concerned about what happened when we get to final third. We need more offensive spark. Funny for all the crap that people say about Pogba, I thought he is going to be perfect for our left mid position. But we have ruben, hopefully he can grow and be a monster player for us. 

I don't think they press that hard, yet of course when they lose the ball sometimes they press that is normal for every team but in general they drop deep in their own half.
