Manchester United fans might still be wondering how they didn’t beat Leicester on Saturday evening.
The Red Devils dominated the second-half at the King Power Stadium but couldn’t extend their 2-1 lead, despite Leicester being reduced to 10 men.
And they were made to pay the ultimate price as Harry Maguire made it 2-2 in injury-time.
United will look back at the numerous chances they squandered before Leicester’s equaliser with Anthony Martial guilty of missing arguably the easiest one.
The score was still 1-1 when the Frenchman was played through on goal, only to blaze his shot well over.
Martial was breathing a huge sigh of relief shortly afterward, though, as Juan Mata’s free-kick put United ahead. Jesse Lingard was next to miss a great chance after he struck the post after taking on Kasper Schmeichel.
So when Maguire equalised, those misses looked even worse.
MOURINHO ON CHILDISH PLAYERS
After the match, Jose Mourinho slammed some ‘childish’ players.
"We didn't win because we missed incredible chances. I would say joke chances,” Mourinho told Sky Sports.
"We made a big defensive accumulation of mistakes in an easy match to win.
“I talked to the players at half time when it was 1-1 that it was an easy match to win.
"The reality is that it is 2-2. Sometimes you make mistakes and are not punished by that.”
So, it was always going to be interesting to see what team Mourinho would pick against Burnley on Boxing Day.
And it was soon revealed that Martial had been left out of the squad altogether.
Many United fans feared he had been dropped but it was soon suggested something a bit less sinister.
AN EXPLANATION FOR MARTIAL'S ABSENCE
Jonny Severin, editor-in-chief at French outlet SFR Sport claimed that Martial had suffered an injury to the knee and will be attending the match in the stands with his family.
So, Martial was left out due to a slight injury, it seems.
