Manchester United suffered their worst defeat at Old Trafford for the first time since 1955 when they were thrashed 5:0 by their visitors, Liverpool. The last time they suffered such defeat was against Manchester City with the same margin. And again, they showed their weaknesses for all the world to see, but in a very embarrassing way. Fans are not shocked by the scorelines at Old Trafford. Infact, many Manchester United fans have been discussing with their friends that Manchester United will finally be exposed when they meet the top 3, which are Liverpool, City and Chelsea.
It was Leicester City that did a great work when they exposed what a shameful and weak club Manchester United is, especially in the midfield, which suppose to be the life wire of the team. So, these are the reasons why Manchester United lost to Liverpool, and will probably keep loosing to other strong oppositions.
A very weak midfield
Liverpool had the whole field, and they were running past Manchester United's midfield. By doing so, they showed the other red team (Manchester United) who the boss really is.
No strong defensive midfielder
Is this not the real positions where they should have pumped money and strengthen the squad, instead of buying Sancho with a huge amount of money?. No team ever win titles or trophies without a strong defensive midfielder. Remember Kante in Leicester (2016), and what he did again in Chelsea (2021), also look at Xavi and Iniesta in Barcelona, and the trio of Modric, Casemiro and Toni Kross in Real Madrid that conquered Europe for 3 consecutive years.
Manchester United lack a sound Coach
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will not be a discussion now, because it is so evident for all to see.
Lack of team motivation
It can be seen in all the player's eyes, their attitude, and how they entered the pitch that Manchester United's team needs some psychological motivation beyond what other other Premier League's clubs give to their players.
After all these problems have been fixed, and the players have gotten the motivation they need, then we will see how Manchester United's players will start winning again. If not, Manchester United will start losing to smaller clubs.
