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.

3 Reasons why a return for former fan favourite wouldn’t be a bad idea for Man United

Man United fan favourite, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been linked with a move back to Old Trafford in the past. However, could now be a good time to get him back?

Zlatan is a Man United legend. He has gone on to have a great career.

Man United’s recent form hasn’t been great. It has improved slightly but they could benefit from having someone like Ibrahimovic back at Old Trafford.

While it may seem unlikey, weirder things have happened in football. Here’s three reasons why it would be a great idea to sign him again…

Ole wants a goalscorer

Marcus Rashford scored an incredible goal last night. This probably will make up for the poor form he’s been under recently.

However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer really wants a goalscorer. So why not Zlatan?

Open to return

He gets asked about his time at Man United all the time. In the past, he has said that he would be open to a return to Old Trafford.

If a deal could be made, it would also please fans. They would also value him more because he actually wants to play for the club.

Experience

The current Man United team is made up of a lot of youngsters. They could benefit from the experience Zlatan has.

He’s had spells at Ajax, Juventus, Barcelona, PSG and LA Galaxy. However’ Solskjaer has said that he would be more interested if the striker was 28, not 38.

‘Stamford Bridge is our new training ground.’ Man United fans react to their win

Man Utd Rashford

Last night, Man United played Chelsea in the Carabao Cup at Stamford Bridge. The Red Devil’s managed to win 2-1 and here’s your reactions.

There’s a clear difference since the start of the season to now for Man United. Their form is a little better.

Last night, fans weren’t sure who would win. Would Chelsea’s youngsters be enough to beat Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side?

Well, the answer was no. A Marcus Rashford penalty put Man United 1-0 up. Even though Chelsea did manage to get one back, there was no stopping Rashford’s free kick that went straight in.

Here’s your reactions…

‘Did the clocks go back 6 years?’ Man United fans react to their win

Man United faced Norwich this weekend. In an eventful game, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side finally got a few goals and all three points.

After a draw with Liverpool last weekend and a successful Europa clash midweek, Man United were looking for a win this weekend.

They managed to beat Norwich 3-1. However, it was an eventful game.

Scott McTominay opened the scoring after 21 minutes. VAR then played it’s first big part in the game. It overturned a penalty decision for Man United but Rashford’s shot was saved.

Marcus Rashford then made up for his miss by putting Man United 2-0 up. However, an exact repeat happened again. VAR gave a penalty for handball but Rashford’s attempt was saved yet again.

Martial then put the Red’s 3-0 up in the second half and Norwich responded a little later. However, it wasn’t enough to stop Man United.

Here’s your reaction’s…

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 demands 2 strikers to fire Man Utd into the top 4

The Daily Star have reported that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be looking to bring in at least two strikers in January. Man United need a boost and it looks like the next transfer window can’t come quick enough.

The form at Man United hasn’t been up to standard. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is receiving a lot of criticism at the minute.

Some think that he is the right man for the job but just needs some time. However, others think he’s had enough time and fail to understand what he’s working on behind the scenes.

Some players are also failing to impress. For example, Marcus Rashford. He is the leading man up front but could do with some help.

January

The next transfer window couldn’t come quick enough for Man United. Fans have been expecting Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to spend in January. Now it looks like those expectations will become a reality.

While the team as a whole have been underperforming, it’s goals that Man United are lacking. This is why goal scorers are the priority.

Mario Mandzukic

33 year old Mario Mandzukic has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford recently.

He is probably the most likely player to join the Red Devils this year so far. However, the Daily Star now say he definitely won’t be the only striker to sign for Man United in the New Year.

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.

Man Utd youngsters hit and miss on a tough night for the fans

Man Utd played in the infamous Europa League on Thursday night football, with a mismatched squad of youth and fringe players. In a very dull, disappointing performance, seeing the inclusion of the young Reds was one of the few positives of the outcome.

Fans have been calling out to see the likes of Axel Tuanzebe, Tahith Chong, Angel Gomes and Mason Greenwood getting more game time, with the first-team squad not appearing to be doing much better,

However, the 1-0 win against Astana from a well taken Mason Greenwood finish was far from enough to prove that they are ready for the first team or Premier League football.

Although Man Utd controlled the game, it was not a convincing performance. Astana had two or three counter-attack opportunities that all looked like they could have been scored.

The Reds had 20 shots to Astana’s 3. Whilst some shots, particularly from Fred and Greenwood, looked absolutely stunning, there is no way Man Utd should only be winning this game by one goal.

Chong’s pace and determination were evident, but his involvement was light. Gomes drifted in and out of the game, but looked totally world-class on the ball. Greenwood got his goal, but his usual ability would have seen him score two or three.

Overall thoughts?

Overall, it appears that there is a reason that the selected team against Astana are not the first team, as they looked disjointed and unimpressive.

Marcus Rashford consistent lack of impact continued in a game he should have probably missed out on. But the 200k per week Premier League star failed to make any contribution whatsoever against the team from Kazakhstan.

Though, Solskjaer said post-match that we will see this team feature a lot this season, meaning these players will get a lot of game time in Europa and the League Cup. This is excellent news for the youngsters, but will they be part of a Champions League run next season?
