Check out Manchester United's big problem

Manchester United was 2-0 down against Liverpool when the first photo was taken, while the second photo was taken in the 13th minute versus Tottenham. Thanks to the insightful's annotations on these photos, you can clearly observe a week ago's openness and lack of organization vs. a much better defensive set up.

While the formational change and the return of Raphael Varane helped Manchester United retain a clean sheet, they were considerably more organized, which implies to me that internal discussions and a difficult week aided Manchester United.

We'll have to wait and see what happens in the following few games. Sometimes you have to go all the way to the bottom in order to rise even higher at the top - you have to take a step back in order to take a stride ahead. 

Before looking at anything else, I expect United will focus on repairing the defense and regaining confidence in our ability to keep clean sheets. That has to be the top focus. Even though the Spurs were horrible, the defense they put up was outstanding.
