"It Didn't Work", Solskjaer Explains Why Manchester United Lost To Chelsea

Please do me a favour by hitting the 'follow' option and the 'like' option. Thanks.

Manchester United manager ole Gunnar solskjaer has explained why his team lost to Chelsea. Manchester United's long dream to win the FA Cup was terminated on Sunday Evening as they were whipped 3-1 by Lampard's men. While much of the blames were pointed at de Gea, solskjaer also received his fair share of the blames. However, solskjaer has revealed why his team actually lost against chelsea.

The united Boss used a 3-4-3 formation as he made 5 changes to the team that beat Crystal palace. Martial, pogba and greenwood were not including in the starting lineup and instead James, rashford and fernandes were played as the front three. United had used this Formation in two of their last wins against Chelsea but this time around, it went horribly wrong. Here is solskjaer's explanation on why united lost the game....

"We picked a team today to give us the best possible opportunity to go through in the cup and be ready for Wednesday," Solskjaer explained. "It didn't work today. "We almost came to half-time, but we had to change when Eric had to come off but that will stand us in good stead for Wednesday. I picked a team today to go through."

Actually, i don't think his explanation I justified, the players had already adapted to a 4-3-3 formation, with rashford, greenwood and Martial up front, while pogba and fernandes behind. And it was giving them good results instead of continuing with that smae tactics, solskjaer went ahead to change back to a defensive team and 'it didn't work!!!!!!. Also think he should have focused on one game first.

But let's leave that and focus ahead, united will need at least four more points to Qualify for the Champions and now that Leicester City have already slipped up, it will be easy. United will play against west ham on Wednesday and if they win that game and maybe draw against Leicester, they will Qualify.

So manchester united fans what do you think, do you think solskjaer was right to change formation and do you think Romero should play instead of de Gea in their next game? Please comment so I can know what you think and I will surely reply back. Thanks.
