WAT 2-0 MUN (HT): 2 Changes Solskjaer Needs To Make If United Are Going To Stage A Second Half Comeback

1. Take Off Nemanja Matic For Van De Beek.

It has to be said that Nemanja Matic has been one of the worst players on the pitch for Manchester United in today's game. The Serbian started alongside McTominay in midfield but so far, his performance has been poor. Matic gave the ball away a few times in the first half and his carelessness put United under pressure against Watford. To prevent such from continuing in the second 45 minutes, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer must take off the former Chelsea man and bring on Van De Beek. Van De Beek is a better passer than Nemanja Matic and if United wants to stage a comeback against Watford in the second half, then they will need more creative players on the pitch.

2. Replacing Sancho With Jesse Lingard.

It has been said times without number, Lingard currently, is a better option for Manchester United on the wings than Jadon Sancho. Don't get me wrong, Sancho is an excellent player but he needs time to adapt. While he is going through this adaptation stage, Lingard should be ahead of him in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's pecking order.

Today, Sancho has tried his best but it's not been enough. Watford defenders have him under lock and keys and he needs to be taken off for a more creative player. The experience Lingard have in the Premier League cannot be compared with that of Sancho and in times like this, he can be helpful. Hopefully, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer makes the necessary changes and get United back into the game in the second half.
