At the pace Manchester United is going, they seem to have fallen out of the EPL title race and are at risk of losing out of the race to finish in a top 4 position in the English Premier League. Although Solskjaer did a great job at rebuilding the team, one would wonder why he has failed to get the best out of Donny Van De Beek, yet he relies on Fred who has continually failed at his duties in midfield, Cristiano Ronaldo was quoted saying, when he first joined Manchester United, under Sir Alex Ferguson, it was difficult to secure a first-team place because no player was special, but in this present era it seems everything is easy and nobody seems to be working hard for his place on the first team anymore.
