‘Luke Shaw is done at United. Williams is everything he isn’t’ Man United fans react to an impressive display

Man United made it 5 wins from the last 6 games in all competitions with an impressive display against Brighton yesterday.

Amongst the many highlights throughout the team was young Brandon Williams, who has been impressive in recent outings.

While Luke Shaw is out injured, Williams is staking his claim for the left-back spot. Making his first Premier League start following appearances largely in the cup competitions, Williams once again impressed.

Making 4 tackles, 2 interceptions and a passing accuracy of 84.9%, the 19-year-old seems to have taken it all in his stride. Alongside Williams 6.98 rated game by whoscored.com. Man Utd ran out 3-1 winners with both Rashford and Martial bagging either side of a Propper own goal.

Man United fans are a happy bunch once again, with plenty of praise for their players…

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.

Man Utd switch attention to another 30y/o+ striker

With Man United desperately needing some new signings, transfer rumours have been flying around. Now, according to The Daily Star, Man United are now looking at Thomas Muller.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be wanting to make the most out of the January transfer window. For Man United, it can’t come quick enough.

Now is the right time for clubs to be sending their scouts out and eyeing up their options.

Man United have been linked with 33 year old Mario Mandzukic a lot this week. Now new reports say that Muller could be heading to Old Trafford.

Bayern Munich

Muller has fallen out of favour at Bayern Munich. This is making him want to look for a new club.

However, Thomas has options, as you can imagine. Inter Milan are also interested.

Man United

If Man United could pull of the deal, Muller would slot into the squad nicely.

He would fit in the central attacking midfield position. His experience would offer younger players like Daniel James some assistance.

3 players that need to impress tonight for Man Utd in the Europa League

Man United play Partizan in the Europa League tonight. The Football Manc Cave have picked 3 players who really need to step up.

This is the third game that Man United will face in Group L. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men currently sit second after one win and a draw.

Man United’s form hasn’t been brilliant recently. However, after a 1-1 draw with Premier League giants, Liverpool, at the weekend, they will be a little more confident.

If they want to secure a win tonight, some players are going to have to step up. We’ve picked out a few who will have to concentrate hard on their own performances.

Harry Maguire

The defender will potentially be featuring in his first European game for the Red Devils.

While it will be exciting for him, he will really have to treat it like any other game. He a going to have to step up and leas the back four.

Marcus Rashford

Fans have been disappointed with Rashford’s form so far this season. However, Daniel James managed to assist in creating a goal for the striker against Liverpool.

Hopefully, that will inspire him to do it again tonight. Although, he has for a tough job with a lot of pressure on him.

Fred

Out of all the Man United squad, Fred has probably under-performed the most so far.

If he does start tonight, he will have to be on top form. Expectations have remained pretty low for the midfielder.

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.

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.

Forget Muriqi: Man Utd need one of these 2 experienced strikers instead

Kosovo striker Vedat Muriqi has Premier League clubs turning heads. Solskjaer sent scouts to watch him play against England where the striker tucked home a penalty. But is this undiscovered talent what Man Utd need in their forward line?

Solskjaer admitted that his side is not complete in terms of tactics and personnel, meaning that a few signings could be made in the next two transfer windows.

Man Utd lack in both the midfield and attack, being limited in players and quality.

The main goalscorer at Old Trafford was Romelu Lukaku until his departure to Inter Milan in summer. Currently, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford lead the Reds’ attack, despite both being unproven strikers. New signing Dan James is giving the forward’s a run for their money, being joint top scorer for Man Utd with Rashford, who has scored three goals, two of which were penalties.

Is Muriqi the right signing for Man Utd?

The 6 foot 3 striker is certainly built for the demands of the Premier League. He made a name for himself last season as he scored 17 goals and got 8 assists for his former club Caykur Rizespor. Before swiftly moving to Fenerbahce for only £3.1million.

However, Man Utd desperately need a prolific striker who can reach the 20 goals per season mark on a consistent basis in the Premier League. Muriqi, on the other hand, has reached 17 goals on two occasions in Turkish football but has fallen well short in other seasons.

Man Utd’s safe bet would be to acquire the services of a proven Premier League striker. Such as Jamie Vardy or Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. As opposed to adding another hit-or-miss player to the squad.

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.

Is it time for OGS to change his Man Utd gameplan

Man Utd’s high-pressure, counter-attacking format has only resulted in two wins so far in the Premier League. Coupled with certain players lacking form and confidence, it may be time to shuffle his deck…

Premier League sides have quickly figured out a system to get at least one point against Man Utd; a compact defence. Wolves, Palace and Southampton all defended in a similar manner and Man Utd completely lacked the quality to pick them apart.

This means that Solskjaer and his coaching staff need to implement and perfect a ‘Plan B’, and they need to do it fast.

Furthermore, some players in the starting eleven are too out of form to risk playing in such big games. The following players should be replaced, as they either need a break or a reality check…

Victor Lindelof

Victor Lindelof recently described his national performance against Norway as ‘horrible’. As well as being the cause of some of the goals conceded this season. His form and confidence are at an all-time low. This could result in Axel Tuanzebe finally making an appearance, and could serve as a defensive lifeline should he perform to the best of his ability.

Jesse Lingard

Similarly, Jesse Lingard has been under heavy scrutiny. He has failed to score or assist in the Premier League during 2019 and is invisible and ineffective in a majority of his appearances. Listening to the fans by replacing him with Angel Gomes will excite them beyond caring much for the final result, as most admit they expect very little from the club this season.

Marcus Rashford

If you think that’s enough of berating Man Utd’s starting eleven, you’re wrong. Marcus Rashford has been off the pace since the end of Solskjaer’s unbeaten run after being appointed as caretaker manager. The Englishman played as a number 9 against Southampton and robbed Daniel James of two or three assists by not having the pedigree to sink the ball into the net.

Daniel James performs better than Rashford off the left-hand side, and Mason Greenwood and Anthony Martial are much more natural number nines than he is.

So where does this leave the academy graduate going forward?

Should Man Utd opt for the same lineup and tactical approach, it is fair to say that the Reds will yet again drop points on their own turf.
