Man Utd must learn to give 100% in every match - collapse at Tottenham was yet another example of them taking it too easy
It is remarkable that it is late April and despite all the progress Manchester United have made this season, a few players do not understand that you have to play at your maximum to win matches in the Premier League.
The team have born match-winners like Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes, a squad full of talented players and an excellent manager - the best since Sir Alex Ferguson.
But a lack of fight is becoming a regular theme, particularly away from home when they do not have 75,000 fans to spur them on.
And unless United can erase this propensity to switch off in games and maintain their intensity for 90 minutes, they run the risk of throwing away their place in the Premier League's top four, which is the bare minimum.
They also risk getting embarrassed in the FA Cup final against Manchester City, who since March have treated every match like it is a final.
The way United have dropped off in some games, it looks like they are still in pre-season, not the business end of the campaign.
