Matic, Fred, Maguire and Hoof can't play under a press. Pogba can a bit cos his technique and strength are brilliant. But he gets caught too cos he's slow.
Beek can too. Did it all the time for Ajax and was pivotal in getting them to CL semi.
Harsh on Matic too. He is very composed and has good close control, and rarely does a Maguire-style hospital pass just to be rid of if and get himself off the hook. Very rarely do you see him lose possession. He slows down the play though, and doesn’t have the mobility for pressing, that’s his big failing.

Maguire would do great if he played the vidic role. But he's attempting to play like Ferdinand trying to make passes and going forward. If Vidic did that he'd be considered a bad defender.

Maguire should only focus on defending. Sadly we don't have a defender who can pass better. Perhaps we should play a midfielder there.
I think Lindelof is a far better passer. He’s a good passer by any standard, CB or DM. He’s usually got AWB and James on his side though, so there’s not much outlet there.

Tielemans good goal there. Fred let him walk in.

The short comings of Matic and Fred, right there.

Which we saw for their second

You can literally just run around the cunt as well which isn't good for a CDM

It’s like Maguire and Lindelof; like Lindelof, Fred has to do the running to cover, and he didn’t there.

Lindelof might have done better, but he had to cover Vardi’s run, so that makes sense. Ultimately, if you’ve got two DMs in front of you, they should be waking in like that.

We are so bad defensively, it’s embarrassing.

Yeah when you look at that defensive unit of four: Matic and Maguire are bollards, Fred’s a headless chicken, and Lindelof is best suited for the high line that we never play. About £200M for that:

Lindelhoof is simply terrible at everything. Ole tried replacing him with Bailly but Bailly is as broken as Jones.
