Someone said it earlier, but Johnson does look scared. Weak shots, half arsed jumping, not being strong in the 50/50s.

I’m a fan of Johnson, but I think the occasion today has got to him. Maybe playing at Old Trafford, maybe knowing the calibre of players we are without and knowing he needs to step up or maybe it’s as simple as new club and a young player?

But we need to stay behind him, be patient and understand he will need time.

Disagree. They deffo didn't deserve anything from that game

They were better than us in the first half IMO. We were better in the second but they still had a couple of amazing chances to win. So we'll agree to disagree I guess.

Imagine if we didn’t have those signings playing. We’d have been up shot creek

We lack clinical passes, crosses and invention in the final third currently.
A point was a fair reflection.

I would love another attacking threat.
Can’t quite believe we spent that much on Johnson. He’s nowhere near Premiership top quality.
I worry he will ever be. A bit of a flake that needs to toughen up, especially in the way he plays his football.

We'd have slapped them with even 2 or 3 fewer injuries. Half the squad out and still a good draw with much of the play at their gaff, no complaints.

I guess it is a sign of the times but im really disappointed with that draw. Half our team out and we still dominated so have to take that as a massive positive but a win would have firmly put us in the title race.

Disappointing considering the way we performed in the second half but considering we've got pretty much every creative player in our team injured or away it's a fine result.

United should be ashamed of themselves really.

With all the players we have missing we were still the better team and maybe could have won the game with the overall control we had.
We should have done.

Worked the ball well at times.

United just played long balls.

At first that caused us problems but second half we snuffed out all their crap attacks.

Johnson needs a break, need to recoup. When every player in this team is playing with confidence than we‘ll be flying. Kulu back for Johnson, madders back, Son back. Werner had a good game I thought.

Despite controlling the game for large parts, we still didn’t test their keeper. Which is our biggest problem this season.

Dominated the ball but felt like quite a flat performance to me. Looking forward to players coming back and PEH, Skipp and Johnson not being in the first 11 for a while.
I’m happy to have Johnson in there, we just need more creative people around him.

Kind of happy with a draw there, important for Werner to get goals or assists early for his confidence. Johnson with one of the worst performances in quite some time, pocketed by RB on a yellow card.

2 points dropped. We were missing the bit of quality that would have got us over the line. We win that if we had Maddison.
