Louis van Gaal's weird tactics sends Manchester United fans into meltdown

Nothing is going right for Manchester United today. Not only did their team bus fall victim to some notorious London traffic but their subsequent rushed warm-up routine led to some inevitable injuries.

After a blunt first-half against Tottenham Hotspur, Louis van Gaal was forced to take off teenage striker Marcus Rashford. Ashley Young came on and everyone expected him to take up position on the left-wing with Anthony Martial moving into the central striker position.

But that didn't happen.

To the amazement of everyone who knows anything about football, Young, who has not scored for Manchester United in 12 months, became the spearhead of their attack. Martial, with 13 goals this season, remained on the right.

Not only that, but Juan Mata was forced to play out of his favoured No.10 role on the right-wing while Jesse Lingard, a winger, played in the No.10 role. Still following? Us neither.

Then the inevitable happened. Young had no presence in the Tottenham box and Mauricio Pochettino's men took full advantage. They scored three quickfire goals to seal their first win over the Red Devils at White Hart Lane since 2001.

Needless to say, United fans are not happy

Even Olly Murs was angry
