In an extremely intense face-off between Manchester United and Leicester City. The Red Devils succumbed to a 4-2 defeat against the Foxes. Manchester United whose record of 29 away games unbeaten is now over. From the start till the end of the match they were an utter mess in midfield.
There were only good bits about the team but overall they were horrible. They have brilliant forwards like Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood and Cristiano Ronaldo. But still, the attack was not disappointing yesterday, it was the defence.
Manchester United’s defence was great on paper after the signing of world-class centre back Raphael Varane from Real Madrid but reality dictates otherwise.
They have some of the best full-backs in terms of quality but have failed to keep a clean sheet since the past 19 games.
The gaffer Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said in the post-match interview that “The goals we conceded were disappointing, the timing of them and the way they were conceded.”
Even though Manchester United have Cristiano Ronaldo who is arguably the most decisive player of all time they could not win.
Leicester City displayed an overall coherent against Manchester United. They displayed an aggressive performance in terms of pressing and the quality of their attack.
It was quite inevitable for Jamie Vardy to score due to his astounding record against the “big 6”.
Jamie Vardy has a good record against Manchester United with a bewildering 9G/A in 12 games.
OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER IN OR OUT Following
The mounting pressure has increased on Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after a staggering loss against Leicester City.
It seems crystal clear that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is an incapable manager in terms of winning any silverware.
Manchester United will face Liverpool, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspurs in the league.
The drab tactics of Manchester United manager will be put to a test in the next few matches. With the board and the fans expecting good results on such short notice. It seems highly improbable that the manager will stay.
