Premier League

One area that Solskjaer has greatly improved and another which needs more improvement in Man United

Manchester United's start of the season is a strong one. The club has shown in their first two games that they are ready to battle for the Premier League title. Man United now has 4 points in 2 games. They won their first game 5-1 but played a 1-1 draw with Southampton last weekend.

One area that Solskjaer has greatly improved in Man United is Set-pieces. Man United rarely scored from set-pieces last season. Although they have not scored from it this season, the game against Southampton showed Man United creating a lot of goalscoring chances from set-pieces. The likes of Pogba, Matic, Lindelof, Maguire could have scored on Saturday. Likewise, Man United was rarely threatened by Southampton from set-pieces.

However, there is one particular area Solskjaer needs to work on. It is creativity and movement from his Defensive midfielders. Solskjaer prefers using two defensive midfielders. However, these DMs are too static and do not offer much creativity. Matic and Fred rarely moved the ball forward against the saints.
