Man Utd risk losing three pillars when playing Bournemouth

Rashford, Maguire and Lindelof all had to be looked after by medical staff, two days before Man Utd’s trip in the 11th Premier League.

“All three asked the doctor to take care of yesterday and today too. Right now I cannot tell their exact situation. Hopefully they can recover to play tomorrow,” Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said at the meeting. foreshadowed round 11 Premier League on Friday 1/11.

Besides Marcus Rashford, Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof, Man Utd certainly does not have the services of Paul Pogba, Luke Shaw, Nemanja Matic, Axel Tuanzebe on Saturday night 2/11. “They are not ready. Even after a team rally, we will be at great risk if we let the three return soon. But two weeks later, everything will be more possible.”

Maguire and Lindelof have been Solskjaer’s top priorities at the Man Utd defense center since the beginning of the 2019-2020 season. And Rashford is in high form, with four goals in the last four matches. Thanks to the sublimation of the English striker, “Reds” won three away matches. Solskjaer also escaped the scene of constantly receiving public opinion axes.

“In football, sometimes you need luck. On Chelsea‘s trip we won with an unbelievable free-kick from Rashford. Before that, the Man Utd defense had stood firm in Belgrade. We also There is a good game in Norwich. The whole team is full of confidence. Obviously, the gap from success to defeat is very small, “continued Solskjaer.

In early October, after losing to Newcastle 0-1, Solskjaer once thought that the match against Liverpool on October 20 would change the situation. Everything went as expected of the Norwegian military leader. Man Utd drew on a victory with the top team, before opening a series of three away wins.

“The preparation of a two-week break for the national team to give us a good game against Liverpool. As a result, the Man Utd player is energized. They are satisfied with the work and the results. achieved, “said Solskaer. “Every match is an opportunity to prove yourself. As a player, I always try every game to show the coach that I deserve to be on the next game. Hopefully, my students now have that feeling too.”

Solskjaer rejected Roy Keane’s advice

Solskjaer does not see Harry Kane – the striker that his former teammate Roy Keane recommended – is a suitable recruitment target for Man Utd.

“Roy Keane is quite straightforward, isn’t it? Kane or Lewandowski and our players are different types of players. But I like a striker who can finish half the chance like Kane. He’s one of the The best player, but Kane is a Tottenham player, “Solskjaer said on October 23 when asked about the advice of his generation’s Man Utd teammate Roy Keane.

Man Utd is currently ranked 14th in the Premier League. The attack is considered an important factor that makes “Reds” decline as they are now, when they do not have a genuine striker and have scored only 10 goals in nine games from the beginning of the season.

Before the situation of the old club, Roy Keane has advised Man Utd to recruit Harry Kane – striker that he believes will help attack “Reds” stripped. “Buy Harry Kane from Tottenham. This is easy, go and bring him back. Kane will score 20 goals a season for you with your eyes closed,” Keane told Sky Sports on October 19, after the match. Man Utd draw Liverpool 1-1.

Although he likes a striker like Harry Kane, Solskjaer still believes in the players he has. “Helping Martial recover to return will be a great motivation for Man Utd, and that will also help Rashford. With the strikers we have, with that speed and skill, I can hope. waiting for many positive things in the next few weeks, “said the Norwegian military leader.

In the context of the race in the Premier League is still long and risky, the Europa League could be another door to help Man Utd return to the Champions League next season. Coach Solskjaer therefore thinks that this European number two playing field is important for the “Reds” this season.

Man Utd are second in Group L of the Europa League with four points over two matches.
