With the 2019/2020 season underway, Manutd started brightly with an impressive win over Chelsea. However, since that win they have drawn to Wolves, lost to Palace and drew at Southampton over the weekend. Defensive errors, missed penalties and a lack of creativity have cost them a maximum of 12 points. So what can they do to get back to wining ways?
Rashford should be taken out of the starting line up as he is currently off form. Started well with 2 goals in the first game against Chelsea. Had an average game against Wolves, had a poor game against Palace which included missing a penalty and again was really poor at Southampton. At the moment all he does is try to dribble past every opponent, does not play the pass when it is the better option. A few matches on the bench is required. Mason Greenwood should be given the chance ahead of him considering he is a much more natural finisher.
Another who isn’t having a great start to the season. Has been guilty of losing possession and not doing much in terms of creativity. Speculation over his future throughout the summer seems to have affected him. He gives the impression that he does not want to be there. Not the dominating figure United want and need him to be. Perhaps United should have considered letting him go and replaced with someone that wants to play for the Club and who is not after a huge pay cheque. Should Ole consider using Angel Gomes?
United’s best centre back last season has had a shaky start to the season. At fault for Palace’s opening goal after missing a header that allowed the attacker to run free and score past De Gea. Got beaten in the air for Southampton’s equaliser. Does not look his normal self. Solskjaer should look at giving Tuanzebe a chance in the next few matches.
Can’t remember the last time he actually scored or assisted in a Manutd game. He is supposedly the no.10 and you can already see the issues affecting the team. He works hard for the team but that is not enough. Another similar to Rashford who needs to do more for the team. Mata did more when he played against Southampton than he has all season. Ole could move Pogba in his position or give Gomes a chance.
A lot of work needed if they are to get back to the top of English football.
