Manchester United And Solskjaer Face December scare



Manchester United have endured a tough start to life this season with the club suffering their poorest start to a season in 30 years.

Run of Inconsistency is what Ole’s boys have offered their fans since the season began which has made the 20 times champion of the English Elite Club competition sit comfortably at the number 9th on the EPL log.

This season, United has failed to build on whatever success they’ve made going forward for them in the league as due to their erraticness, they’ve capitulated for quite some time that they’ve had the opportunity to move up on the log.

Two weeks ago, United conceded two goals far away at Bramall Lane to Sheffield United but came back in the game after the introduction of Mason Greenwood as Brandon Williams’ goal opened the floodgates for United as two more goals were scored on the bounce by Greenwood and Rashford.

But United relented after the third goal and was punished for their complacency in the latter part of the game as McBurnie’s goal was finally made to stand after much review from the VAR for probable handball. Hence the game ended 3 goals apiece.

A week later, The Red devils against Dean Smith led Aston Villa side ran 1-nil up in the 11the minute after a blistering strike from Jack Grealish but just before the end of the first half, Marcus Rashford equalized for United while Victor Lindelof scored another header for United in the second half.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s boys again fluffed their defense line and conceded the second goal. The game ended in a stalemate at Old Trafford after another 2-2 draw which means Ole has some questions to answer as regards his philosophy and tactics as a Manchester United manager.

United enter into a hectic December period to face Ole’s predecessor in Jose Mourinho’s rejuvenated Tottenham side. The North Londoners have not lost a game since the appointment of the former Manchester United manager. Winning all the three games played. And Jose Mourinho will be looking forward to prove to the United hierarchy that he was never the problem.

Tactically and with the current crop of players Mourinho has, the best Solskjaer can get out of the game is a draw which with all sincerity doubt because of recent results.

After hosting Tottenham, Manchester United will again visit Manchester City four days later for the first Manchester Derby of the season, wounded city are trailing League leaders Liverpool by nine points and one of the easiest games to close the gap has to be a tie with fumbling Manchester United.

Performance-wise, squad depth, quality and the impact of the manager, Manchester City are ahead of Manchester United in all ramifications.

Judging by these, I doubt if the Manchester United board will still back their former striker after back to back defeats in space of five days after the two games against the two managers who’re arguably the best in the world right now will either make or mar Ole’s future as a united manager as he’s warned his players to take two games serious as he fears sack.

The decision is left to Ed Woodward and the Glazers family to take after enduring torrid times from Ole who has basically been taking one step forward and two steps backward this season.
