Manchester United only succeeded at one point at Southampton in the premier league on saturday night like Che Adams goal was canceled by Mason Greenwood in the second half. The red devils could only register one point on the road when they will travel to Molineux next Sunday in the championship.
Olé Gunnar Solskjaer did not go to fellow new recruits in the From the eleventh, even if Jadon Sancho came to make an impact on the bench. Perhaps too little too late for the winger as Solskjaer’s tactics did not bear fruit in this specific competition. Raphael Varane maybe too early to start in the squad, but his impact could have been paramount in the defensive weaknesses seen at the back in this game. He could also have joined Harry maguire for the very first time. Sancho is suited for a formation that allows United to press on the counterattack that didn’t tangentially work out in this particular football game.
Anthony Martial and Fred are not the solution for United’s future
Even if Antoine Martial and Fred are important players, they weren’t powerful enough to justify regular starting positions together.
With the transfer window still open, Solskjaer could look to sign a midfielder before the deadline based on what he says today from the sideline. Although Martial is young, he is often criticized for his decision making, often selflessly trying a distance effort.
His pace is frightening, but United fans will quickly recognize that he is frustrating to watch. Often times, when replaced, his body language is negative. Fred on the other hand is aging with his distribution his strong point under a United jersey.
The Red Devils must go from 4-3-3 to 4-2-3-1 if they want to get the best out of the team
United have enjoyed success in an attacking style of football over the years, but at the moment it’s not going as planned.
In their current roster, the lone striker up front often has too much to do with the serve surrounding midfielders. If the red devils Changing formation wingers will be inaugural in construction and could be used in a better system suited to their strengths.
With more forwards in the lead, the chances of relying heavily on, for example, a Mason Greenwood are relaxed. Olé Gunnar Solskjaer and its staff behind the scenes have work to do to make it happen before it’s too late with more difficult testing ahead.
Mason Greenwood Still remains United’s most prominent young talent by remaining consistent
Mason Greenwood is still the best youngster United have on their squad. His goal proved that he is going to be a fantastic player in a few seasons and could potentially have the best season of his career, off to a perfect start so far.
Having learned his trade alongside very influential players such as Marcus Rashford and Edinson Cavani his left foot continues to be strong in individual situations, but more importantly, his awareness has strengthened.
At just 19, the forward went through United’s academy and became a very popular figure for United fans. His consistency has shown that his talents do not go unnoticed.
David De Gea always struggles to keep sheets clean and slowly loses contact
David De Gea Has for sure had his best time as a goalkeeper at United, but the keeper is still relied upon to protect the baseline.
In this particular game, Che Adams broke the baseline and sent De Gea wondering where his next clean sheet would come from after being beaten to his near post following a deflection in the build-up.
With Tom heaton coming from Aston Villa after his successful fate and Dean Henderson breath in his neck, the pressure is on for the so-called number one with others looking to take his place in his slippage in an effort to impress Solskjaer. With midfield positions under debate, the goalkeeper department is also on the lips of many.
