Well, it’s fair to say derby day didn’t go as planned. In a tournament that was probably our best chance at lining the trophy cabinet, Manchester United now find themselves with a mountain to climb.

Being 3-1 down going into the second leg is never easy, though Marcus Rashford did give us a glimmer of hope after scoring midway through the second half. The problem was that the damage had already been done thanks to a non-existent midfield and a shaky defence…

Again, the problems all stem back to Phil Jones. It’s crazy to think that the former Blackburn Rovers man would actually be eligible for a testimonial in about eighteen months – particularly after a half-decade of utter tripe.

Sure, I feel somewhat sorry for him as he was thrust into a game against City with very little playing time under his belt, though positionally he was atrocious, he got left for dead on more than one occasion and once again, he did nothing but provide the fans with more memes…

As you’d expect, Twitter wasn’t all-that kind to the Englishman at full-time. Man Utd fans fumed at the 27-year-old after his shockingly bad derby day outing and rightly so. We’ve compiled a few reactions here:
