Manchester United hit rock bottom against Olympiakos, say Goal readers

The reigning Premier League champions suffered a 2-0 defeat in Piraeus on Tuesday, rocking their Champions League hopes, and readers believe it is United's worst result this term

Manchester United gave their worst performance of the season in Tuesday's Champions League last-16 defeat against Olympiakos, according to Goal readers.

David Moyes' men were on the receiving end of a 2-0 defeat in Piraeus, with Alejandro Dominguez and Arsenal loanee Joel Campbell netting to hand United a Herculean task to qualify for the quarter-finals.

Astonishingly, the Red Devils registered just one shot on target throughout the entire match, and looked toothless and disjointed in the absence of both Juan Mata, who was ineligible, and Adnan Januzaj, who was rested.

“It was a really poor performance. We never really got going from the start and we didn't deserve anything,” said Moyes after his side's Greek tragedy.

“I am just surprised. I didn't see that level of performance coming. I just didn't see it. It's the worst we've played in Europe. We didn't offer enough on the night to create a goal.”

And 77.8 per cent of readers agree with Moyes that United's display was not just their worst in Europe, but their worst across all competitions this season.

There have been a number of below-par displays from the Old Trafford outfit this term, including home defeats against West Brom and Newcastle, as well as a 2-1 reverse against Stoke City at the start of February.

However, Goal readers believe it was the defeat against Olympiakos, widely regarded as the worst side left in the Champions League, which is the nadir of Moyes' unspectacular reign.
