Two words sum up Manchester United’s performance in the Champions League 2-0 away loss to Olympiakos yesterday morning (Singapore time): Utter rubbish.
Chelsea’s flight to Istanbul this week must have been a little awkward.
The reason? Jibes at his goal-shy strikers have left Jose Mourinho hopping mad.

Many would have wondered how David Moyes could be as bold as to say Manchester United could win the Champions League this season.
Manchester City fought the gallant fight, but the 2-0 home loss to Barcelona virtually knocked them out of the Champions League on Wednesday morning.
Arsenal have overcome many challenges this season. But they haven’t yet faced a challenge like Pep Guardiola’s Bayern Munich, in the Champions League last-16, first-leg match at the Emirates.
More than three months into the campaign, the Gunners are still firing on all cylinders. Who would have thought?
MAN CITY 1 (Alvaro Negredo 79)
BAYERN MUNICH 3 (Franck Ribery 7, Thomas Mueller 56, Arjen Robben 59)
It may not be true that he has had led this revolution single-handedly, but he is certainly the face on the posters.
One’s guilty, the other’s innocent. Both, though, were equally unscrupulous.
ARSENAL were handed a devastating Champions League draw yesterday when they ended up with some of the brightest attacking sides in Europe. There wasn’t a minnow to be seen in Group F and this will take some doing.
