Manchester United fans urged to SWITCH OFF by Patrice Evra after first-half collapse against Spurs

2 min read

A disgusted Patrice Evra slammed Manchester United on Sunday after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s 10-men buckled against Spurs, going in 4-1 down at half-time. 

The collapse was both embarrassing and historic, with United never before having conceded four goals in the first-half of a Premier League game. 

Tanguy Ndombele, Harry Kane and a Son Heung-Min double saw United trudging back to the dressing room already defeated, with Jose Mourinho revelling in the rout over his old club.

‘I don’t even want to comment on this game. It’s a catastrophe, as we say in France,’ former United left-back Patrice Evra said on Sky Sports. 

‘My advice to any fan now is to buy a playstation, buy a player like Sancho or even Messi and start playing because this is a disaster. 

‘Bailly gets the chance to play instead of Victor Lindelof and he makes that mistake. So don’t cry when you don’t play.

‘I’m devastated, and I’m a positive person. Right now I understand the pain of all United fans, no one of this team deserve to play right now.’

United’s slow start to the Premier League season began to sink deeper when Anthony Martial lashed out at Eric Lamela in the hosts’ box after a frantic start, with referee Anthony Taylor immediately spotting the incident and showing the Frenchman red. 

The Red Devils had already lost their opening game of the season to Crystal Palace and as they look set to fail in their pursuit of top target Jadon Sancho, Solskjaer is left with his side on three points after three games.
