Every Manchester United player was ‘shocking’ apart from David de Gea, according to Savage, and it is difficult to argue with the Welshman after the listless performance.
The Red Devils were not helped by Anthony Martial’s first half red card, but in truth they were already playing well below their best as Spurs created chance after chance.
The visiting side found it remarkably easy to cut through the United defence and Savage believes there is a complete lack of leadership, desire and quality in the United back four.
‘The United defence was out of shape and had no leadership – the goals that they conceded were so bad. Luke Shaw kept going inside, over covering. United weren’t switched on, they weren’t running back,’ Savage told BT Sport.
‘At 6-1 down Eric Bailly was squared up trying to tackle, be a bit more aggressive with your defending and keeping the ball out of your net.
‘Harry Maguire – a Manchester United captain? Seriously? He’s a good player but a Manchester United captain? It was schoolboy defending and there was little to no desire.
‘United’s recovery runs were non-existent, the desire to defend was non-existent, the organisation was non-existent – it was an absolute shambles.
‘Paul Pogba today was absolutely shocking, as was every single Manchester United player apart from David de Gea.
As bad as Manchester United were, Spurs turned in a fantastic performance, which Savage rates as highly as any he has seen from a visiting side at Old Trafford.
‘Tottenham were absolutely magnificent – organisation, desire, aggression with and without the ball, clinical in forward areas, every player was a 9/10,’ he said.
‘They were absolutely sensational. It was one of the best performances I’ve seen at Old Trafford.’
