Premier League

3 Players Solskjaer Should Bench In Manchester United In order To Save His Job

In Saturday's Premier League match against Everton, Manchester United were not at their best. The Red Devils seized the lead thanks to Anthony Martial, who scored his first goal of the season. But, with Andros Townsend on target, they were forced to settle for a point.

They delivered another inconsistent effort after failing to beat Aston Villa in their last Premier League game, falling 1-0 at Old Trafford.

Here are 3 Manchester United players who need dropping after Everton Premier League draw:

1. Fred

Fred is no longer eligible to play in midfield for Manchester United.

After a frustrating performance like Man United's 1-1 draw with Everton, we all want a scapegoat, and Fred is certainly playing that part today, but I don't think he's a scapegoat. This is just a list of facts. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be fired if he continues to play the Brazilian in midfield. That's how much he's impacting our performance.

Why didn't Fred just take the yellow card and stop Everton's counter-attack? We're talking about one of the most basic skills taught to any midfielder, and Fred failed to perform it.

Everton reacted and scored when he limped into a tackle and leant into a shoulder barge. Yes, Luke Shaw lunged in from his position, but it should never have gotten to that point.

Is it possible that I'm being too harsh on Fred? No, I don't believe so. For Solskjaer, it's now or never at United. His job is on the line, and Fred is drawing him under the sea like an anchor. Ole will notice and step away if he and his ego have any form of pride.

This Manchester United squad has so much potential, but Fred is jeopardizing any chance of success we might have this season. If Solskjaer is too stubborn to recognize that, his head will be the first to be chopped off.

2. Lindelof

With Harry Maguire out, Victor Lindelof has another opportunity to shine. He didn't, however, as the Sweden international turned up a shaky performance.

But it's a very different story with Lindelof. On days like that, he seems like an accident waiting to happen. If Maguire is injured for the foreseeable future, Eric Bailly, who is sitting on the bench, could be called up.

3. Edinson Cavani

Don't get me wrong: Edinson Cavani had nothing to do with this defeat. The Uruguayan international performed admirably in the attacking third, but he isn't Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Portuguese exude a fear factor, as though anything may happen at any time. Cavani's selection came at the expense of the 36-year-old, which is sad.

Solskjaer may have to find a way to play them both at the same time. But, because he usually only plays with one centre-forward, Ronaldo is the only option. And that's a pity.

What are your thoughts on this??
