In the starting lineup, both Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes were anticipated to score goals, and Manchester United fans were certain that their team would win the match with ease. The Red Devils, on the other hand, struggled.
The tactics employed by Ole Gunnar Solksjaer were blamed by some for the team's poor performance. The Manchester United manager began Fred and Scott McTominay in the midfield against the New York Red Bulls on Sunday.
Since the beginning of the season, the Brazilian midfielder has been in disarray. Many pundits have criticized him, and many fans were perplexed as to why Solksjaer had brought him into the team.
Another error made by Solksjaer was starting Paul Pogba as a winger despite the fact that he had players like Jadon Sancho and Jesse Lingard on his substitutes' bench. A popular belief among fans was that Pogba should be playing in Fred's position and that another winger, such as Sancho, should be playing up top.
Fans' reactions can be found in the section below.
