Premier League

Manchester United encountered their first away defeat in the English Premier League since January 2020. The last time was a 2-0 defeat at Liverpool. Manchester United have conceded four goals in an away league game since April 2019, a 0-4 loss to Everton.

Manchester United have managed just two wins in their last seven matches across all competitions. One of the two wins required a last-minute penalty save, and the other was an injury-time winner.

The Norwegian manager needs to make some changes in the team or else he could be sacked if the situation does not change for the better.

Below is a list of the things Ole Gunnar Solskjær needs to fix at Manchester United:

- Competition

Manchester United is one of the largest teams in the English Premier League in terms of size, and yet there is no competition within the team. Some players are going to be among the starting XI no matter what happens or how they perform.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær is not a good rotator of the team, but there should be a form of healthy competition among the players for every position in the team.

The Norwegian manager should make use of every member of the team and give everyone the same rights, except for a few key players, though. The number of key players should not be more than three so that everyone can strive to make the team.

- Teamwork

Ole Gunnar Solskjær's Manchester United team relies heavily on individual brilliance a lot more than on teamwork as a whole. This has been shown in previous matches this season where the excellent performance of a player has won Manchester United games.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær should make a specific pattern to get all the team members to play a role in one way or the other.

Football is not a one-man game. It is a team game and everyone should have a role to play. The team should not rely on a particular player to win games.

- Flexibility

Ole Gunnar Solskjær's tactics are rigid and he should be more flexible with his approach if he wants the situation to be changed. A manager should have more than one way to win a match with the quality and number of talents in the team.

Most of the time, the opponents score first and a comeback is needed, and Manchester United has not won a game when a player gets a red card.
