Are EPL Players Still Having World Cup Hang Over?

Tottenham and Manchester United had the most players in the just concluded World Cup. Especially as the Russia 2018 drew to an end.  Most EPL teams have only had most of their star players back for a couple of weeks as they return from their extended breaks.

Last night, it was evident that perhaps they still needed more breaks. Both teams made many individual mistakes in the Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur fixture with Lukaku leading the pack.

Danny Rose under-hit a back pass to Hugo Lloris which Romelu Lukaku intercepted, rounded the goalkeeper then missed an open net.

Pogba and others too made mistakes that should keep their coaches very concern
