The supporters expected the team to be on top of the EPL table before the international break, but the team is struggling despite the recent squad improvement.
Here are two issues that the manager should address.
1. Midfield Reformation: the midfield of the team is great, but the midfield lacks organization. I think Fred and Scott should be axed out of the starting XI because it is obvious that their partnership is unproductive. The manager should change the partnership in the midfield. For example, I feel the trio should be Paul Pogba, Donny and Bruno.
The issue is that Fred and Scott's partnership is a defensive approach which is, however, not effective in recent times. In modern-day football, attack is the best form of defence. This midfield trio highlighted above could be productive because all the midfielders are creative and highly intelligent. So, I think the manager should try to improve the midfield after the international break.
2. The manager should be ruthless in his selection, especially in the attack: there are numerous attackers in the team. For improved performance in the attack, the manager should try to be ruthless in his selection. Players who are underperforming despite their status in the team should be benched. This will encourage every player to improve, rather than relying on some players to always do the job.
Here's how I think the team should line up after the international break.

In conclusion, the supporters expect the team to improve after the international break.
Poll: Do you think that Donny deserves to be in the starting XI?
