Leicester City Snap Manchester United’s Unbeaten Away Streak

A ruthless Leicester City side has hammered a woeful Manchester United 4-2 at the King Power Stadium, to snap the Red Devils unbeaten away record that had stretched back to January 2020. 

The match was a microcosm of the past three seasons at United…

Some moments of brilliance, even more moments of incompetence, and a manager who clearly isn’t up to the job. 

However, United’s board seem intent on backing their man, and on current evidence can look forward to more days like this. 

As is the standard reply now, Solskjaer backed his players and said they need to learn and get better. 

One might wonder what some of the best players in the world, on eye-watering wages, still need to learn when it comes to representing United… 

When Patson Daka smashed in the fourth goal for a Leicester team who hadn’t won in the league since August, Solskjaer could only watch on motionless from the touchline, knowing that the 4-2 scoreline flattered his team, and that without their Man of the Match David de Gea, the scoreline would have been much worse. 

“The goals we conceded were disappointing, the timing of them and the way they were conceded,” Solskjaer said. “It says everything when your best player is probably David but still concede four goals.

“We didn’t deserve the points today. We gifted them the first goal. All the goals were disappointing, the way we conceded them. We were too easy to play through. It was the team as a whole. We need to be more compact and more aggressive. We didn’t defend well enough.

“We’ve been really good at showing our character when we’ve needed it. The attitude has always been good. We need to stick together and work hard. We need to perform better.

“You have to bounce back. You have to respond. We’ve had the international break to look at things.

“Everyone’s been away and maybe they came into this confident, because they’ve done well their international teams. But we need to sort this out.

“We have five games until the next break and we’ve got to stick together. There’s no other way to do it. You cannot lose focus; you’ve got to trust yourself, trust your teammates and make sure that we’re ready on Wednesday night because that will be a difficult game as well.”

We need to perform better, we need to work hard, we need to sort this out…

United fans are tired of hearing the same hollow words week in week out with nothing ever changing, and the man responsible for getting the team to perform better, work harder, and sort it out not doing those things. 

However, Solskjaer indicated he may finally be ready to ring the changes in terms of personnel and tactics ahead of the visit by Atalanta in the Champions League this week. 

“Over the international break, we have had a good look to see what has gone wrong lately,” he said. “But we need to look at the whole set-up and balance of the team and maybe something has to give. Lately, we have not been in great form, we’ve lost too many points and that is something we have to look at.

“We might have to change. Do we need more legs in there? What do we need?

“Every game is important in the league and the Champions League is hard.

“They’re big games, all of them. Leicester away is as big a test as Atalanta at home, for example. So, we’ve got to dust this off, maybe make sure that we come in again we have fresh minds, looking at themselves in the mirror. I look myself in the mirror, and make sure we perform again.”

With back to back games against Atalanta in the Champions League punctuated by league fixtures against Liverpool, Spurs, and Manchester City, things could get worse before they get better for United. 

The manager asked ‘What do we need?’ 

The answer is Zidane in the dugout. 

Uninspired Manchester United Slump To Home Draw With Everton

An uninspired Manchester United team have dropped more points at home, slumping to a 1-1 draw with an injury-ravaged side at Old Trafford. 

After a sublime piece of skill from Bruno Fernandes, United scored the opener on the stroke of halftime with a quality finish from goal-shy Anthony Martial, and spirits around Old Trafford were lifted at the sight of the Frenchman on the score sheet for the first time since March. 

However, United couldn’t find a second goal to kill off the game, and were hit on a superb counter-attack in the 65th minute, capped off with a goal by their nemesis, Andros Townsend. 

That much-maligned midfielder Fred had two opportunities to kill the counter and failed with both did him no favours with the Old Trafford faithful, and it seems his manager finally felt fed up, withdrawing him just five minutes later. 

What Solskjaer sees in the defensive midfielder who can’t defend, can’t pass, and has a woeful first touch is anyone’s guess…

After the equaliser Everton were much the better side, despite missing both Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin, and were unlucky not to go home with all three points after a tap in from Yerry Mina was correctly ruled out for offside just five minutes from time. 

Unlike in the Champions League fixture midweek, there were to be no stoppage time heroics as United have now taken just one point from their past two home Premier League fixtures. 

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was disappointed with his side’s result, saying “You’re disappointed you don’t get three points. That’s why we turn up. We turn up to get three points. We looked like we were on the way to a three-pointer with a good goal. Good first half, I thought. Pressed well. We created some good openings, good chances. Couple of good headers and crosses we could have done better with. Coming into half-time with a good goal Anthony scored was a good feeling. In the Premier League, being organised and focus is so important and to be organised behind the ball. Disappointed we conceded on our corner.”

“Last season against Everton we were 2-0 up and cruising and then they scored two in two minutes. They have players who can hurt you in moments, Gray, Townsend. The pace they have on the break… Unfortunately, for us they scored a great goal.”

“We’re well organised and we just don’t deal with a couple of those instances of the counter attack well enough. That’s something that happens in football.”

“Disappointed with the last two home games. Villa and Everton here, one point in those two is below our standard. We should be looking to win every game at home but you’re playing good teams as well. We have to keep on working, get better and then hopefully they’ll enjoy their international break, play some games and the rest who will stay here we’ll evaluate. We’re looking forward to Leicester.”

Football is a funny game. United are four points better off after the same number of games compared to last season, but the feeling this time around is that with the additions they made to the squad this team should be capable of getting home wins against teams such as Villa and Everton. 

If United’s lack of identity or system continues to see the club slip out of the title race, calls for Solskjaer to be replaced with Zinedine Zidane or Antonio Conte will only grow louder…

Late Ronaldo Strike Gives Manchester United Champions League Boost

It looked like being an awful night in what was becoming an awful run of outs for Manchester United. 

A goal down at home to Villareal, the same team who beat them in the Europa League final last season, and once again out of ideas, United were limping towards another defeat that would have seen them take zero points from their opening two group stage games. 

Diogo Dalot and Alex Telles were being tormented down the flanks, and if it wasn’t for goalkeeper David de Gea putting in a world-class performance, the yellow submarines would have sunk the red devils in the first half. 

However, as so often happened at Old Trafford during the Fergie years, United found something when they were off the boil, and grabbed an unlikely equaliser as Telles gained some form of redemption with a Scholes-esque volley on the hour mark. 

With Old Trafford brought to life, United pushed in search for a winner, and when it finally did come, it was who else but Ronaldo in the last minute of stoppage time, much to the delight of his manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. 

“He’s done that so many times. You saw him against Ireland a month ago; he missed a penalty early, didn’t touch the ball more or less and scored two great headers in the last minutes.

“That’s what he’s done throughout his career. He stays in the game. I’ve seen him all day, the way he’s built up for this game, and when he gets that one chance, it’s a goal.

“He had a couple of half chances, but a true mark of a great finisher is that he keeps calm when the chance arrives.

“Thankfully, we had the best goalkeeper in the world tonight. David was fantastic. They deserved to lead.

“David has really come back [after the summer] with a determination and work rate I enjoy. Again, he got a deserved outcome. He saved us tonight. We have to be realistic and say that,” said Solskjaer. 

While it wasn’t a performance that will strike fear into clubs across Europe, the fans went home happy, leaving the stadium to the tune of ‘Viva Ronaldo’ and Solskjaer proved that, once again, he can get a result when he needs one. 

Aston Villa Give Manchester United Nightmares At Theatre Of Dreams

Aston Villa have left Old Trafford with three points and a bag full of confidence after outwitting, outplaying and outsourcing Manchester United thanks to an 88th minute headed goal from defender Kortney Hause.

United were given an opportunity to spare their blushes in stoppage time, however, Bruno Fernandes smashed his penalty over the bar and into the Stretford End to cap a miserable afternoon for the men in red. 

The final 0-1 scoreline even flattered the home side, who should have found themselves two goals down at the half, but for some woeful finishing from the visitors. 

The second half picked up where the first finished, with United bereft of ideas to counter Villa’s high tempo and high press, as the Villains dominated all areas of the pitch.

United were hamstrung with injuries, losing Luke Shaw in the first half and Harry Maguire in the second, but once again manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer showed he has no Plan B when Plan A isn’t working, only bringing on Edinson Cavani in the 81st minute. 

The manager felt the teams cutting edge let them down, as they had 28 shots in the match, but never really threatened the Villa goal. 

“I thought we were very good in the transitions, defensively we won the ball in good positions and we attacked quickly. But when we got up there, the final decision, the final execution, the quality in the pass or the shot or decision wasn’t good enough to get goals. The game ebbed and flowed and was probably a good game for the neutrals but unfortunately, we didn’t get a goal.”

“Against us on the corner you see the inconsistencies again with VAR and decision making because [Ollie] Watkins is clearly standing on or is touching David [De Gea] as the header has gone so he is offside, or it is a foul. The linesman did well, he reported it or called it in to VAR, but they turned the decision down and it is a goal unfortunately so, bad decisions again.”

“We should have, could have, slowed the game down at times. But when you have attackers who are very good on transitions with speed and skill, sometimes the decision then was rushed. We didn’t have enough control even though we had 60 per cent possession, 30 shots or whatever. But we know Aston Villa are a good team on transition as well with Watkins, [John] McGinn and [Jacob] Ramsey running forward with the wing-backs. But that wasn’t what hurt us though. It was the corner kick at the end and unfortunately Bruno [Fernandes] with one of his very, very rare misses.”

After losing three of their past four matches, united are deservedly coming in for criticism, and now face a daunting week with Villareal in the Champions League before a home match with Everton next Saturday. 

“Every time you’re defeated, you have to stand up for yourselves, stand up for your team, fight for your team and we will. The boys will. It’s a big game, a Champions League night and we know we’ve started that group badly, but we’ll be ready.”

Anything less than two wins from two and talk of a crisis won’t be far away…

Manchester United Back On Track With Dramatic Win At West Ham

Jesse Lingard

Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard has gone from villain to hero in the space of a week, scoring in the 89th minute to give his side a 2-1 come from behind victory at West Ham. 

The Lingard late show wasn’t the final act in a dramatic day, as much-criticised keeper David de Gea saved a Mark Noble penalty in the fifth minute of stoppage time to ensure all three points would go back to Old Trafford. 

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was under fire after his teams Champions League loss in midweek, and the manager was delighted with the way his side responded today.

“We deserved three points [against West Ham]. It’s a hard place to come, here. Hopefully these points can make a difference. Let’s see [about the title] when we get towards April and May.”

“We have to defend better. We have to make it harder to break us down. For their goal the structure was wrong for whatever reason and we’ll have to work on it.”

“I’m so happy for him [Lingard] because you know it’s ups and downs in football. He was low on Tuesday, now high again, he scored against Newcastle, you’re up, you’re down, you’re up – but that’s football. You have to live with it and Jesse has learned how to deal with ups and downs in football. You know, if you play for Man United you have to live with it, be able to handle that scrutiny. Don’t worry about it because what we have to worry about is ourselves, what we do, what we say. We’re a group, we’re together, we work together, stick together through thick and thin. That’s never going to be any different. This is a family. It was a great goal. Of course, he had a tough evening on Tuesday but he’s knuckled down and worked hard again. He’s been the same bright, positive lad and what a goal. A great pass by Nemanja, a good turn by Jesse and a great goal.”

Cristiano Ronaldo continued his red-hot form since his return scoring his fourth goal in three matches, however, Solskjaer was left feeling aggrieved that his talisman was not awarded any of the three penalties he should have been given. 

“I’m going to be careful with what I’m saying, but you’ve got to be wondering what’s he’s got to do to get a penalty. The first [obstruction by Coufal] and the third [tackle by Ogbonna] is 100 per cent nailed on. The one where he gets pulled back [by Cresswell] is probably [not obvious], but it’s still a foul, he gets pulled down in the box. It’s frustrating but they’ve got to look at it. It’s two clear penalties. I think they’re stonewall. You can’t even argue against them. The first one, he puts his foot out and Ronaldo runs straight and is fouled. The last one, Paul had a foul against him on Zouma when he didn’t touch him but he went over him. Why is Cristiano’s not? Hopefully it won’t be that he’s never going to get a penalty.”

Despite some defensive failings, Solskjaer was happy with how his team played overall, and was grateful to come away from a tricky venue with another away win. 

“Very happy with the performances – 11 corners, a few big chances that we missed. First 10-15 minutes of the second half I thought we pressed them really well, made them give the ball away five or six times in their own box more or less, and it’s one of them, we can’t get a counter-attack every time we have a corner. There was a few having to sprint back a couple of times.”

“We have to work better defensively, no doubt. In the first half, we were too easy to play through. We will work on it because there is no respite when you play football. I’ve spoken about how you can’t take rests when you defend. We dropped into a back six [for the goal] and there were too many spaces. We were too late to charge the ball. We’ve already sorted that and spoke about that at half-time. It was better in the second half and a great response, that was a big thing for me – how do you react when you go 1-0 down? It was a very, very good five minutes for us.”

The match-winner Lingard, who spent the second half of last season on loan at the London Stadium with West Ham, is set to start as Solskjaer is expected to make a number of changes when the two teams meet this week in the Carabao Cup.

“Jesse was quite clear he wants to fight for his place and be part of a Man United team that is going places,” Solskjaer added.

“I can’t speak for Jesse now but he’s really contributing. He’ll play on Wednesday as I’ll make a few changes,” concluded Solskjaer.

Ronaldo Marks Stunning Manchester United Return With Two Goal Haul 

As the Reds ran out 4-1 winners against Newcastle United on a glorious afternoon at Old Trafford, Cristiano Ronaldo marked his return to Manchester United in the only way he knows how – by scoring goals.

As United struggled to break down Newcastle, Ronaldo’s goal on the stroke of half-time was exactly what they needed.

Mason Greenwood, who had scored three goals in his first three games, hit a right-foot shot that Freddie Woodman was unable to hold onto, which Ronaldo took advantage of to the delight of a bouncing Old Trafford crowd.

In the 56th minute, Javier Manquillo equalized for Newcastle after a breakaway, but the no.7 scored again six minutes later in front of a jubilant Stretford End.

Bruno Fernandes added a beautiful third 10 minutes from time, before Jesse Lingard rounded off the win with a brilliant finish in injury time.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was delighted with the second debut of the talismanic Ronaldo, who he says has already given such a boost to everyone at the club. 

“Cristiano senses the big moments and is ruthless. He is clinical. He has lifted the team and everyone around us. It’s just perfect for him, you see what he’s about, sensing the moment and smelling the danger but he’s also evolved into a proper team player. He has developed into a fantastic goalscorer. He played a very good game, dropped in and linked the play well.”

“When you win a game you enjoy it. When you see fans being happy, you really enjoy it. There were loads of expectations today. They all delivered.”

“When it gets back to one each, you never know how it is going to go. But I thought we settled well. We played the ball and, when Luke [Shaw] put on the afterburners! When he really went for it there and Cristiano is so good at timing his runs. It was a fantastic goal by Bruno. You know Bruno and his quality from those areas. I am very, very happy.”

“I’ve got say well done to the club and everyone for bringing in players to challenge. We’re bringing competitors but they’re good people and we have got a good and strong squad.”

United now travel to Switzerland, where they will open their Champions League group stage matches with a fixture against Young Boys. 

Manchester United Steal All Three Points At Molineux

David De Gea and Mason Greenwood were praised for their ‘special’ contributions after a smash and grab job against Wolves last night by Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

He admitted his team wasn’t at their best for large parts of the match, but despite that, he was happy with the win in front of raucous home fans.

With United’s win, they set the record for the longest unbeaten away run in English Football League history at 28 games, beating Arsenal’s mark from April 2003 to September 2004.

“We’re happy. Great result. Both could have won it. Of course, we were under pressure for a spell but we had most of the possession I reckon. It was not the prettiest game but it was a game for everyone to watch. There’s was excitement in both boxes. The crowd was there, with some passion. Finally we’ve got our game back.”

“They had maybe a little bit more than us. We didn’t create too much today but then we’ve got a good goalkeeper as well. David has found his determination, desire and he’s come back with loads of energy. You can see that in him, in the work he’s doing every single day. The second save [from Saiss] from that corner is special. That’s not just hit him. It’s reaction and he’s had a strong arm to it,” said manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Last time out at Southampton, Manchester United were on the wrong end of a refereeing decision that saw Southampton take the lead. Today, however, the boss was happy his team were on the right side of what could have been a foul by Paul Pogba in the build-up to the match-winning goal. 

“This week I’m happy. That’s the nature of being a manager. Last week [at Southampton] we were told they wanted to keep the game flowing. Today they kept the game flowing and I think it was a fair challenge [by Pogba on Neves]. I said we’ve got to be careful not to make the basketball game that we had last year – everyone could fall over and it was a free-kick – but to make sure we don’t get into rugby. We have to look after the players. I thought the refereeing has been good over three weeks. I watch Match of the Day, you watch some of the full games and they’ve been told to keep it more lenient and flowing. When it goes against you, you’ll moan just for a little bit and then you’ll move on. When it goes for you, you’re happy and you don’t want to talk about it too much.”

The Premier League now goes on hiatus for the international break, after which Solskjaer hopes to have the talismanic Ronaldo in his line-up. 

“Cristiano has evolved as a player. He used to play wide right, wide left, up front but he’s more of a centre forward for me at the moment, definitely. There will be games we play with two up front or three up front but I want him in the box, I want him scoring goals.”

“That’s football for you. Sometimes it happens. We’ve always been watching Cristiano. The one day he was going to move, we’d be interested. We never thought he was going to leave Juventus this season but when we did we had to speak to him, of course. Everyone that cares for Man United wanted this to happen and everyone played a part. But the biggest thing is that Cristiano wanted to come here,” concluded Solskjaer. 

Manchester United Held To Draw At Southampton

Manchester United have been held to a 1-1 draw away to Southampton, coming back from a goal down to equal the Premier League record of 27 matches away from home without defeat. 

Southampton took the lead against the run of play with a Che Adams show deflected off Fred and past De Gea. 

In the build-up to the goal, Southampton’s Jack Stephens fouled Bruno Fernandes with a challenge that referee Craig Pawson should have spotted without the assistance of VAR. However, when reviewed, the goal was inexplicably allowed to stand. 

“It’s a foul, he [Stephens] goes straight through Bruno, with his arm and his hip across him. We can’t go from one extreme of volleyball or basketball last season to rugby now. I like the more lenient way, it’s more men’s football, but, still, that’s a foul,” said Solskjaer in the post-match press conference. 

United equalised through a Mason Greenwood strike in the second half, after the fifth assist of the season from Paul Pogba, and looked as if they would go on to claim a winner. 

Though it was Southampton who will feel they should have banked all three points, with David De Gea making a brilliant save to deny Adam Armstrong late on. 

“Overall, I think we created enough chances to win it and played some decent football at times; then again we could have lost it but for a very good save from David [De Gea]. It’s a point from a losing position but it’s not what we wanted. We weathered the storm in the first two or three minutes after some set-plays, then we played some good football ourselves, created chances from set-plays and when they scored that was more or less out of nowhere. [It was a] Foul, 100 per cent. Football can go from one extreme to the other and he goes straight through Bruno’s hip so that’s a foul, but we should react better anyway, we should do better, just block the shot and make sure mistakes won’t cost us.

“We played some very good football until they scored, maybe for another five minutes. It’s sloppy, maybe because of tiredness we gave them a few chances, we could have lost it as I said. After we scored, the next five, six, seven minutes, I thought ‘yeah, this is good’. We created chances, they had a couple of blocks and we did have opportunities. I always believe in these players.”

“We wanted to get Anto [Martial] going, make it to have two forwards. Anto drifted to the left and Mason was coming inside from the right. Mason scores a very good goal. He didn’t have one of his best days, but he still contributes and when Jadon [Sancho] came on, I thought he looked really sharp for the first 10-15 minutes, but the whole team fell away a bit and the last 15 minutes we didn’t play particularly well.”

“We’re still very early on [in the season] and we need to work to get them fit. We’ll be better off next week. It’s a point from a losing position, but still we want two more in every single game but now it’s about working on fitness, a couple of other issues we need to sort and then we should be ready for Wolverhampton,” concluded Solskjaer. 

Next weekend United travel to Molineux to face Wolves, where they will look to break Arsenal’s away record they currently hold with The Invincibles. 

Manchester United Batter Leeds For 5-Star Season Start

A rampant Manchester United, on the back of a Bruno Fernandes hat trick and four superb Paul Pogba assists, have started their season in the best possible way, battering bitter rivals Leeds United 5-1 at Old Trafford. 

A second-half goal by Leeds’ Luke Ayling temporarily levelled the game, but Mason Greenwood and Fred scored for United to help secure the points.

Before the match, United presented Raphael Varane on the pitch, introducing their new signing. As the defender has not yet trained with the squad, he was not included in the squad.

“We know the quality of the players who have come in, but the team was already very good. We showed it last season. We didn’t win trophies, but the team was growing up,” Fernandes said after picking up the match ball.”

“Our focus has to be game by game. We’ll achieve something with this mentality.”

“My objective every season is being better than the last one. Every performance I do, I want to do better and better. I’ve started with three goals but it’s a long way [to go].”

“People talk about the quality of Paul, but his quality is not in discussion. We know what he can do and today he showed that.”

“He’s an important player for us. We know to expect these kind of performances from Paul,” added Fernandes.

New signing Jadon Sancho made his much-anticipated first appearance for United on 75 minutes when he came on as a substitute for Daniel James, on a red-letter day for the Red Devils.

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was delighted with his teams start to the season, as the record champions look to mount their first serious title fight since the Sir Alex Ferguson era. 

“You’ve got to say well done to everyone – from the crowd to the players to the staff this week, the coaches. Everything’s been spot on and to get this result and performance on the first day gives you a massive boost. It’s just the mood. But it’s one game and we should always pat ourselves on the back and taste that sweet victory. Tomorrow, we’re back on track for the next one.”

“Sir Alex always used to say enjoy it and express yourself. You have to enjoy the privilege and the pressure of playing in front of 75,000 and millions on TV. I knew we would work hard but it was the fitness levels I wasn’t 100 per cent sure of. We could smile at the end!”

“I’ve had a great relationship with Paul ever since he was a kid. Today was just about ‘go out there and enjoy yourself’ because he had 45 minutes against Everton, which wasn’t his best. We gave him the freedom of roaming wherever you want to go and get on the ball. I can’t remember the last time that happened [getting four assists in a single game] but Paul’s got that quality and, when you’ve got runners willing to make runs and create space for others, it opens up.”

“For me, this is the way I want to see my team play. Not just because it’s Leeds but I want to see them running, going forward, taking risks. We look fit to be fair and some of these players haven’t played for more than 45 minutes.”

“This atmosphere gives you the extra edge and energy. You can’t replicate that from a team-talk or the team spirit it gives you. When you run down that end and you score four goals like we did second half, it’s just the best feeling in the world. The last 18 months have been strange – the only interaction [for fans] has been through media and watching games on TV. You haven’t had that feeling of connection. To be reunited with the fans again is important. This is Man United. This is the real Man United. This is how I sold Man United to Edinson [Cavani] for example. You can’t leave after one season playing with no fans. Man United is fans and players and everyone together,” said Solskjaer.

There will be sterner tests ahead in this campaign, starting with United’s next two games, tricky away fixtures at Southampton and Wolves.
