Manchester United coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been under pressure from fans of the club to turn things around at the club, with the club suffering from a dip in form, the red devils have lost two of their last 3 English Premier League games and have started to drift away from the leagues top 4, their recent 4-2 loss to Leicester City has left Manchester United in 6th position with a 5 point gap between them and league leaders Chelsea.

Although last night Manchester United's players and coach showed that they had the fire in them to get the desired result in their heroics in the 3-2 victory over Atalanta in the UEFA Champions League, Manchester United must avoid making some mistakes that saw them go down 0-2 to Atalanta in the first half of their UEFA Champions League clash, if they wish to defeat the highly tactical Liverpool this weekend in the English Premier League.
In last nights UCL game, it was quite clear that the mentality of the Manchester United players was poor, they may have been affected by their recent 4-2 loss to Leicester City, it only took a half time team talk by coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Cristiano Ronaldo to spur the players to regain command of the game, it took second-half goals from Marcus Rashford, Harry Maguire and Cristiano Ronaldo to help Manchester United recover from a 0-2 first-half deficit to win the game 3-2.

Although Manchester United played like a world-class team in the second half of the game after a woeful first-half performance against Atalanta, they cannot afford to make any kind of mistakes against a team like Liverpool, the Manchester United players will have to play like world-class stars from the start till the end of the game, they will have to understand that a team like Liverpool that is lead by a master tactician Jurgen Klopp will punish you and will not allow you to recover from your mistake. They cannot afford to allow Liverpool any space to take charge of the game or even get ahead of them in any way, because player's like Mohammed Salah, Sadio Mane, or Firmino will punish you at the slightest mistake.
Loss Of Concentration
Manchester United coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer must rally his team and get them to understudy the mistakes that caused them to concede 2 goals against Atalanta and avoid a repeat against Liverpool, he needs to make the team understand the importance of a victory over Liverpool this weekend and what it would do for the team.

Since the beginning of the 2021/2022 EPL season, Manchester United has conceded at least one goal in every game which is bad for the team they must do their best to maintain absolute concentration and try to avoid conceding goals, in the last night's post-match press conference, Bruno Fernandes said he and his teammates would have to learn from their past mistakes and do their best to avoid conceding goals in future games.

It is the loss of concentration by defenders like Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof, Aaron Wan Bisakka, or Luke Shaw that results in goals, they will need to develop absolute concentration and stop even a fly from getting past them if they want to stop Liverpool in their highly anticipated grudge match this weekend in the English Premier League.
Players Like Cristiano Ronaldo, Mason Greenwood, Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford, and Edison Cavani would have to forget about individual glory and make Manchester United's victory against Liverpool their ultimate goal this weekend.

Recently many fans have accused Mason Greenwood of not passing the ball to Cristiano Ronaldo when he is in a better scoring position, and sometimes it has cost the team the opportunity to win games sometimes, all that would have to stop, Solskjaer will have to make his forwards understand that they need to be united and play as a unit in other to overcome Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool threat this weekend in the English Premier League at Old Trafford.
Avoid Wasting Scoring Chances
Manchester United coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would have to work on his striker's confidence in front of goal, they will have to avoid wasting goal-scoring chances.
Marcus Rashford vs Atalanta
Manchester United strikers, like Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood, would have to be lethal and not waste chances because a strong and organized team like Liverpool may not give you too many chances to score, so Manchester United strikers will have to take make the best out of what they get if they intend to win the game.
