An own goal from Dawson gave Manchester United a slender victory over West Ham United. The output was largely uninspired and uncharacteristic of Manchester United during Sir Alex Ferguson's tenure. They conceded a goal in the 93rd minute of their Europa League match against AC Milan due to poor defending. United has also drawn a number of games that they would have won if they had won. Their degradation can be due to the following three factors.
1. Key players are fatigued.
The key players, who have been participating in the match after match, are tired. Players like Harry Maguire, Bruno Fernandes, Aron Wan Bissaka, Marcus Rashford, and Luke Shaw have appeared in nearly every match since the season began. This has sapped their momentum, as shown by their performance against West Ham United last week.
2. They have been weakened by injuries.
Paul Pogba, Edison Cavani, Donny Van De Beek, Juan Mata, and Anthony Martial were all injured for Man United's match against West Ham United. Due to a long-term injury, Phil Jones has yet to play a single minute this season. Despite the presence of Marcus Rashford and Victor Lindelof, Ole took a major risk. As a result, injuries are considered to be a contributing factor to the squad's inconsistencies.
3. Ferguson's Winning Mentality seems to have ended.
Sir Alex Ferguson fought hard to eradicate complacency in his team. Winning was natural. Players were psychologically aligned to offer their best. At times they could be two goals down but they still created fantastic comebacks and won the matches in the end. This was winning the Man United way.
Ole Gunnar is actually finding it hard to apply this theory in the squad. Indeed since Sir Alex retired, the club has not won a single Premier League trophy. Indeed, Sir Alex is irreplaceable.
