Loads of Man Utd fans compare defending for Sheffield United’s winner to Istanbul Basaksehir shambles

Manchester United’s shambolic defending for Sheffield United’s winner has drawn inevitable comparisons with the Istanbul Basaksehir horror show that allowed Demba Ba to score in the Champions League. 

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side missed the chance to return to the top of the Premier League table after losing 2-1 to Chris Wilder’s bottom placed side at Old Trafford.

Oliver Burke’s scored the winner in the 74th minute after a wicked deflection off Axel Tuanzebe, but United had countless opportunities to clear and the space afforded to Blades attackers was alarming.

In November, the Reds conceded a goal that almost had to be seen to be believed with no player within 20 yards of Demba Ba as the former Chelsea striker ran from his own-half to score from the United set-piece.

Incidentally, Harry Maguire and Tuanzebe were the centre backs that started in each game and both were at fault this evening.

Maguire couldn’t command the situation, Tuanzebe failed to clear adequately and there was no intensity to close down the following shot.

Plenty of supporters on social media have understandably compared the two moments of defensive ineptitude.
