Manchester United won the match against Brighton & Hove Albion but proved to be tactically weak. The match ended 3-2 with many controversial decisions via VAR which lead to goals being given and rescinded.
Ole not worthy of being the manager?
The match on Saturday proved that Ole Gunna Solskjaer will need to improve his training methods if he wants to get the most out of his players. The team looked lethargic and were nowhere close to where they should be. United has a lot of talent in the first eleven as well as the bench, but Ole doesn’t seem to be improving his players.
Firstly, there was poor team selection on his part with no striker being present on the bench for United. Brighton seemed to be playing the game on their rhythm and were controlling the entire play. Ole’s team just looked tactically weak with no sort of plan to follow. With no positions reinforced, United’s task of reaching top 4 will seem extremely difficult.
Ole’s substitutions also seemed to be poor, with him bringing on Van de Beek in the 85th minute with no time to make an impact. Brighton hit the post 5 times in the match, with 3 from Trossard itself. However, Bruno Fernandes hit back at him with claiming in the post-match interview that “The aim is to score goals, not hit posts.”
United now face Brighton on Wednesday again in the EFL Cup. They would be looking out to hurt them.
