Ferguson urges Man Utd defence to tighten up

Sir Alex Ferguson has told his Manchester United defenders they must stop giving away early goals because there is no guarantee the Premier League leaders will keep coming from behind, the Daily Mirror has reported.

United have fallen behind seven times in 11 league games this season, the Mirror adds, coming back to win five of those matches. The most recent was at Aston Villa last weekend when the Midlands side took a two-goal lead shortly after half-time, only for Javier Hernandez to inspire a comeback that saw United win 3-2.


Earlier in the season, however, United went two goals down at Old Trafford to Tottenham Hotspur and despite a valiant effort that saw the visitors come under intense pressure, the home side failed to overturn the deficit and duly suffered their first defeat at home to Spurs in a generation.


Bemoaning the lack of consistency in his backline, Ferguson said: “We have players who can change the course of a game, and there’s a goal threat about us. But we can’t continue giving teams a start. It’s not that we underestimate anyone, we just don’t expect a Manchester United team to be two behind.
