Manchester United fans identify the most ‘unacceptable’ thing about limp defeat to Manchester City

Manchester United’s approach to today’s game against Manchester City has been branded ‘unacceptable’ by a number of pundits and fans on Twitter as the title now looks out of reach.

The Red Devils have often gone on the defensive in big games under Jose Mourinho, whose side managed just 35% possession against City this afternoon.

Playing into Pep Guardiola’s hands, City dominated and did plenty of damage with the ball, earning a 2-1 victory that many feel has ended this season’s title race as a contest.

The Sky Blues are now eleven points clear at the top of the table, and there is plenty of anger at Mourinho for his negativity with a club of United’s resources and proud history.

This may seem harsh given the slight luck element in both of City’s goals, but in fairness it’s easy to imagine they’d have found other ways of scoring if efforts from David Silva and Nicolas Otamendi hadn’t gone in.
