Man United simply can not drop these 3 players if they want a 4th away win

Man United’s form has improved recently. If they want to make it 4 away wins in a row, these 3 players will have to be played.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has transformed his team. Improvements are coming slowly. Now Man United have a streak of wins.

It started when they drew 1-1 with Liverpool. That sparked something in the team and now they’re improving each week.

They followed that draw with a win against Partizan in the Europa League. When they returned to the Premier League, they then beat Norwich 3-1.

This week, they also managed a win against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup.

Tomorrow, they face Bournemouth. If they want to make it 4 wins in a row, these 3 players should be in the squad…

Marcus Rashford

This may seem like an obvious pick. However, there is no doubt that he needs to be in the squad.

He’s not been at his best in the first stages of the season as he missed penalties and failed to find the back of the net. However, his two goals against Chelsea prove that he’s on his way back.

Daniel James

Most fans would agree that he has made a huge difference to the Man United team this season.

He is becoming a fan favourite. When he’s in the squad, you can see the difference.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Now that he’s back from injury, he should be in that squad every week.

Even Chelsea fans commented on how there was no getting past him this week.

Man Utd should play these 3 players to finally get the season going

Man United need the January transfer window to come quick. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team need reinforcements. However, until that time, here’s 3 players who need to be in the starting line up.

Man United have been linked with different players in the past couple of months.

However, with January still a few months away, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are going to have to make do with that he has.

There’s a few players who he should make sure are in the starting line up each week…

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

He’s been out of the squad due to injury but now he’s fully fit again.

Yes, he’s not been that effective in some games, however, if he keeps getting minutes, he’ll only improve.

Brandon Williams

The 19 year old has now got himself in the starting line up. I honestly believe that he shouldn’t fall back out of it.

The teenager makes a big difference to the team on the pitch. He’s becoming a fan favourite for the effort he’s putting in.

Daniel James

Quite an obvious pick. However, the difference he makes is obvious when he’s playing.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should keep him in the starting line up to get the best out of him.

Solskjaer’s teammate backs him to make Man Utd great again

National Sport have reported that Wes Brown has backed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. He believes his ex-teammate is the right man to manage Man United.

Wes Brown has said that the current Man United boss just needs time.

Brown believes that the way Solskjaer understands Man United makes him a perfect fit. He thinks it’s brilliant that he knows the values and mentality it takes to be a player and manager at Old Trafford.

However, most fans would disagree. Some think he’s had enough time with the club and don’t understand what he’s working on in training.

Their best performance so far came this weekend when they drew with Liverpool 1-1. Fans aren’t happy with the current form.

Transfers

Brown is happy with the players that have been bought into Man United’s squad so far. He is confident in Harry Maguire and Aaron Want-Bissaka but Daniel James is the stand out man for him.

When asked about the transfer window, he believes that even better players can be brought in. However, he understands that 6 or 7 players won’t be brought in all in one window. Therefore, it could take time to see change.

Development

Wes also addressed that Ole is the right man to develop players and the club as a whole. The fact that he has played for the team himself helps with that.

However, time is ticking. Man United used to be a club that other teams feared. Now some are looking forward to playing them as they may earn some points. I’d something doesn’t change soon, Ole could be out of a job.

These 2 out of form Man Utd players should be nowhere near the starting 11 against Liverpool

If Solskjaer wants to change at Man United, he’s going to have to start dropping a few under-performers. Some injury concerns at Old Trafford have made it difficult for the boss. However, here are two players that shouldn’t be in the starting line up.

People are calling this Man United team the worst they’ve seen in years. While the recent form certainly backs up that statement, not all players are that bad.

There’s a select few who have stood out like Daniel James. A move to Old Trafford has done him wonders. Harry Maguire is another player who is good, he just hasn’t got the right partner in defence.

It’s safe to say that January can’t come quick enough for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. However, here are two players who he should drop due to poor performances…

Ashley Young

To be fair to Solskjaer, he’s not had much of an option due to players being out. Injuries to other defenders like Aaron Wan-Bissaka have meant he’s had to play Young.

However, fans are getting frustrated with his performances. He even got subbed against Newcastle late on.

He’s playing as the Man United Captain but he’s not a leader in my opinion. A re-shuffle of the Captain’s arm-band might take some pressure off him.

Fred

I think it’s time that Solskjaer was a little harsher on Fred.

Dropping someone from your squad can always make them more determined and motivated to get back in it. That’s what needs to happen with the midfielder.

Fans have called him out as being one of the worst players in the squad. Especially against Newcastle. They’ve also said he’s worse than they imagined him to be. Solskjaer needs to listen and sort it out now.

2 in-form players for Man Utd that need to play Liverpool this weekend

Man United have got a tough clash this weekend as they host Liverpool. The Premier League current toppers will be looking for another 3 points. Here are two Man United players who can help stop that from happening.

It goes without saying that Liverpool is the favourites this weekend. It will be an even harder job for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men to get some points.

However, that won’t stop them trying and being at home could help matters.

Solskjaer also has some players fit again after time out. This gives him more of an option when it comes to picking his team. It will also help him to change things around.

Daniel James

The 21-year-old has been playing for Wales on the international break. He has impressed critics and fans in the open wing stages of the season.

The ex Swansea player has been consistent for Man United so far. He has shown he deserves to be in one of the Premier League giants squads.

This is why he should be given a chance against Liverpool this weekend.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

There are rumours that the defender will be available this weekend. If he is, Solskjaer should definitely take advantage of that.

This would give players like Ashley Young a chance to rest as his performance hasn’t been great recently.

Maybe these players coming back from injury will be the answer Man United need. At least that’s what fans are hoping.

If Man Utd get their man, it could signal the end of a fan favourite

Man Utd was heavily linked to Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho in summer. But unfortunately for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, he may have to wait a while to see the youngster in a red shirt. This season so far could have been very different with Sancho at Old Trafford…

Reports have claimed that Man Utd held talks with Borussia Dortmund for the services of Jadon Sancho back in March. To no avail. As the executives of the German club assured that the winger was not for sale in summer.

Sancho has made his way into the England squad, bagging himself two goals in a 5-3 win against Kosovo. More than that, his performances have shown no signs of shyness, lack of confidence or ill-form. The forward three of Raheem Sterling, Harry Kane and Jadon Sancho would make the people of England wish another World Cup was just around the corner.

Could Sancho edge out Rashford

This is interesting, as it looks as though Sancho could begin to shove Marcus Rashford out of the starting eleven. And should Sancho have become a Man Utd player in summer, the same could have happened at Old Trafford.

Daniel James has looked immense so far this season, he is a lethal weapon on the left-hand side. To even more of extent, Jadon Sancho has mastered the right-hand side, leaving Anthony Martial as the new number 9 in the centre of the attack.

These three players seem fairly consistent in their work-rate, quality and talent, despite their tender ages.

However, Marcus Rashford hasn’t quite lived up to expectations just yet and is very hit-or-miss with his performances. Quite to Man Utd’s bemusement, new signings such as Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James have exploited the lack of work-rate and quality in the rest of the team. Bringing in Jadon Sancho in summer would have multiplied this ten-fold.

Man Utd securing defenders long term services could result in a new title-winning back-four

Victor Lindelof endured a bad first season or so at Old Trafford after arriving in summer of 2017. However, he found form, seemingly out of nowhere, and became Man Utd’s most trustworthy defender.

Now, Man Utd want to offer him a £150,000 a week deal to keep the brand new back four together for the next five years…

Last season, Lindelof found form and became a fantastic addition to the Man Utd squad. In a season where Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Ashley Young featured heavily to the frustration of fans, it was Lindelof who got all the praise.

Unfortunately for the Swede, he has had a rocky start to the season with his brand new teammates Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka beside him. His weakness of winning aerial duels has proven to be the bane of an otherwise solid-looking Man Utd defence.

Does Lindelof deserve a new contract?

But is this enough not to renew his contract? This defender was recently approached by Barcelona, who tend to steer away from signing players they do not 100% believe will bring quality.

Other than that, his overall gameplay is actually very good. His distribution and passing abilities helped Man Utd tremendously last season. Now, Man Utd have two centre-backs who can do this with ease. Playing from the back in the modern game is pivotal, and Man Utd have done this superbly on several occasions.

Last season, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones struggled with this, often panicking and losing possession in dangerous areas.

Solskjaer wants this back-four to grow together over the coming years. Should Victor Lindelof and Luke Shaw reach their maximum potential, and Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Harry Maguire continue being fit and of the highest quality, Man Utd’s back four could be the new Gary Neville – Rio Ferdinand- Nemanja Vidic – Patrice Evra.

Next stop, fixing the midfield!

After a total rebuild of the back four and introducing Axel Tuanzebe to the bench is a magnificent start to Solskjaer’s reign. But their major downfall is the midfield. When Pogba’s future is decided, and new midfielders are introduced, Solskjaer will finally have a model of what he will be working with for the foreseeable future.

These 5 bold changes will see Man Utd make their mark against Leicester City today

After moving on multiple players during the transfer window, Man Utd was left with a very thin squad. Now, in their biggest game so far against Leicester, there are multiple injuries which could completely write off the game at Old Trafford.

In Solskjaer’s recent press conference, he admitted that some players could miss out playing against Leicester City due to injuries.

This means that Man Utd’s dire midfield doesn’t even have Pogba anymore. The most competent defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka is out, along with their new number nine Anthony Martial, left-back Luke Shaw, right-back Diogo Dalot and Jesse Lingard, too.

With such a lack of squad depth going into this game, Solskjaer and Michael Carrick could have to put their boots on a join in…

What will Man Utd’s starting 11 looks like against Leicester?

Goalkeeper

David De Gea

Thankfully, Man Utd still have David De Gea between the sticks. However, with his recent dip in form and rumours of his departure in summer, it is uncertain which De Gea will show up.

Defence

Ashley Young, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Marcos Rojo

Although it would be fantastic to see Axel Tuanzebe or even Brandon Williams step in, Solskjaer made it clear that it will be the experienced players who have to step up during this injury crisis.

Midfield

Matic, Pereira, McTominay

Yes, perhaps. This midfield three for a full season might see relegation. But with a lack of midfield investment in summer, coupled with Pogba’s injury, this is the best midfield Solskjaer can pitch. Unless he finally gives Fred a chance to shine.

Attack

Daniel James, Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood

The most exciting part of the team is the pacey, young forward three. Dan James has been utterly brilliant off the left-hand side for both club and country. However, Rashford at number nine could cause some issues, as he seems to only be clinical in a few games per season. Mason Greenwood will be the beacon of hope for bagging a few goals in the game.

Man Utd stand strong as they set Pogba January sale price

Paul Pogba’s dream of moving from Man Utd to Real Madrid could finally materialise as soon as January. This will make the upcoming season one of ups and downs for a few reasons…

If you asked me for a price to set on Paul Pogba, you’d have to tip an eight on its side. There is no price that Pogba can depart for which will benefit the future of Manchester United unless every penny of the quoted £179million for his services is reinvested into a brand new midfield.

But bear in mind, when Cristiano Ronaldo departed Man Utd, he was replaced with Gabriel Obertan and Michael Owen… A club with ambition right?!

What will happen to Man Utd if Pogba leaves in January?

Many Man Utd fans fear that the board will fail to invest in the club correctly upon the sale of Paul Pogba. Selling him in January will only allow for three or four weeks to find a suitable replacement, whilst also attempting to sign a further midfielder which the side desperately need already.

With Paul Pogba, Man Utd have the 8th best midfield in the Premier League. Without him, you’d need to look at the Championship to find any comparisons. That is why Paul Pogba cannot be sold unless plans for his replacement are already in place.

But again, bear in mind that the transfers of Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka took more than four weeks to complete, resulting in Man Utd giving in to the initial asking price anyway.

Love or hate Paul Pogba, he is the only outfield player in the squad who could walk into any other European giant’s dressing room.

It is unlikely that Man Utd will replace Pogba with a player of his calibre. If they do, it will be a player who is merely seeking an astronomical wage.

Is Man Utd going round in circles despite the promise of a rebuild? Should it continue, there is no cap to how far down this once great club could plummet to.

Man Utd’s stand out player in the opening month of the Premier League, agree?

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad lacks depth and quality. This has been evident, if not proven, by their last three fixtures where the side was unable to get a win.

Whilst there are players of quality in the side, such as Paul Pogba, David De Gea, Marcus Rashford, Victor Lindelof, Fred and Anthony Martial, each of these players have under-performed be it the fault of their own, the tactics or the lack of quality in teammates.

However, three players have stood out for Man Utd so far this season, and each of them shares one thing in common…

Solskjaer’s Signings

Harry Maguire (£80m), Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£50m) and Daniel James (£15m) have undoubtedly been the beacons of hope in Man Utd’s squad this season.

The three of them are the only contenders for Man Utd’s Player of the Month, which says a lot about the rest of the squad.

Each of them were signed this summer by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Despite his tactics and decision making being questionable, his ability to bring in good talent and let go of ‘deadwood’ has been second to none in Man Utd’s history. Perhaps the position of Director of Football would be better suited to him!

Daniel James

Daniel James was Solskjaer’s first signing, coming from Swansea, the Welshman was heavily promoted by Ryan Giggs, who played a big part of his move to Old Trafford.

Upon his arrival, and during pre-season, Daniel James received non-toxic criticism regarding his role at the club. Fans were convinced that James would be a ‘super-sub’ or a prospect for the future.

Proving them wrong, Daniel James has started three of four games, bagging himself three very well taken goals. James is Man Utd’s top scorer in the season so far.

Furthermore, he has been the most dangerous player for Man Utd going forward. Against Southampton, he was robbed of two or three assists due to Marcus Rashford being unable to take his chances.

It appears that the little Welshman is showing up his under-performing teammates, as he earns considerably less on a weekly basis.
