The English Premier League was in action today as Manchester United hosted Everton at Old Trafford today. Manchester United crumbled to a disappointing home draw against Everton at Old Trafford as Cristiano Ronaldo benched in a key match. The Red Devils were unable to bounce back to winning ways after their last weekend's loss against Aston Villa at Old Trafford as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's poor decisions backfired today.
Everton has been impressive and a difficult team to play against under Rafa Benitez. The former Liverpool's coach has restructured Everton and turned them into a formidable team capable of upsetting the best teams in the Premier League.
When you thought Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is about to get Manchester United back on track again, he somehow blew off with his poor tactical decisions today. The Norwegian coach proved that he is still an inexperienced coach as he made two poor decisions that cost Manchester United two valuable points today.
1. Benching Cristiano Ronaldo:
Everybody thought Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will start Cristiano Ronaldo who scored the winning goal to earn Manchester United all the three points against Villarreal but fans were disappointed. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer shocked the fans when he opted to start Anthony Martial ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo and this sabotaged Manchester United tactics even though Anthony Martial managed to score in the game.
2. Starting the midfield of Fred and Mctominay:
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made a big mistake by choosing the midfield partnership of Scott Mctominay and Fred. Scott Mctominay and Fred have always been a time bomb waiting to explode and today it was proven as the midfield couldn't stop the Everton counter that led to the equalizer.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should be criticized for his poor decisions in today's match as Manchester United drops valuable points once again.
