What Is Actually Happening At Manchester United This Season?

Manchester United extended their winless run in the Premier League to three straight games, with their latest defeat to Leicester City at the King Power Stadium, having been beaten by Aston Villa, and drew against Everton in previous games.

The fans are already getting worried about the bad form of the club this season, as they are gradually losing grounds on their rivals, on the Premier League table.

With the latest defeat to Leicester City, Manchester United are now fifth on the Premier League table, and could drop further down the table, after the completion of the match week eight.

There are split opinions among the Manchester United fans, on what is actually wrong with the team, resulting to their bad form.

In this article, we will be analysis the three things that could be the cause of Manchester United terrible form this season.

1. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

The coach of a team is always the first person to be held responsible for the horrific performance of his team, and pays the price most times by being sacked.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been tagged as the number one problem of the team, as his tactics in games and team selections has been questioned a lot of times.

The club has provided him with top quality players, but utilizing them properly to produce results has been a major problem for the 48 years old.

Many United fans are already calling for the sack of their manager, and for him to be replaced with a highly classed manager like Antonio Conte, or Zinedine Zidane.

2. Midfield Troubles

The United's midfield this season has been classless, and lack essential qualities, they have rotated the likes of Scott Mctominay, Fred and Nemanja Matic in central midfield, which has proven not to be the top midfield quality that a big club like Manchester United should rely on.

Paul Pogba has also being dropped deeper to central midfield in some games, but it does not seem to improve the United's midfield quality, as the French man performs better in a more advanced role, on the left side of the midfield.

These has been a major problem, which they failed to fix in the last transfer window, and it's now coming back to hunt them.

3. The Players

The individual performance of some players in the Manchester United sqaud also need to be questioned.

Although, football is a team sport, but individual errors can also lead to the team loosing games, which has also being the case of the Manchester United team.

For example, Harry Maguire was a complete disaster against Leicester City, and it ended up affecting the result of the game.
