Even at Christmas, things don’t seem to be going well for the struggling Red Devils. In the match against third-placed Aston Villa, United were already 2-0 down after just over half an hour and revealed glaring defensive lapses, including conceding their second goal.

A defensive behavior which particularly displeased the supporters of Old Trafford: the local supporters chanted “You will be sacked tomorrow morning” for minutes.
