Almost £70m was spent on Sigurdsson and Davy Klaassen at Koeman’s insistence. Both have made anonymous starts. Rooney, Sigurdsson and Klaassen prefer to operate in a central role and the former manager’s thinking was clouded as he persisted with two, sometimes all three, in his starting lineup with predictably ponderous results.
Koeman admitted only on Friday: “What is the best formation? What is the best striker with Wayne, Sigurdsson, Klaassen? We struggled at the beginning to get the right formation and that makes it difficult. Then not good results and that brings us back to the lack of confidence.” Six weeks and £45m were spent prising the Iceland international from Swansea City.

Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.
