2. Luck still carrying United in the Premier League
All in all it wasn’t a bad United performance, but to rely on a great defensive error and a penalty to snatch a point, it wasn’t exactly a champions performance. Spurs may have the second or third best squad in England, but it was pretty much the same side that Manchester City mauled 6-0 at the Etihad last week that Manchester United travelled to, and if they want to keep their name in the list of title contenders, they must improve. Thrashing Bayer Leverkusen 5-0 in Germany shows that progression is being made, but either side of that huge win was a draw with a Cardiff City side Arsenal cruised past and a draw against a Tottenham side that had only managed 9 league goals so far this season, something has to change. With United now sitting in 8th and 9 points behind leaders Arsenal, Moyes’ men must pick themselves up if they are to realistically compete with Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City for a Champions League spot.
