MU attackers are on alert when they can not score in 3 consecutive matches in the Premier League. Solskjaer coach needs to make changes soon.
In the last 3 matches in the Premier League, MU only won one point. They lost to Liverpool 0-2, lost to Burnley 0-2 and drew 0-0 against Wolves. MU had the opportunity to shorten the gap with the top 4 when Chelsea repeatedly lost points, but they did not take advantage. Even now they are pushed down to 6th place.
Martial is bringing frustration when he takes the role of leading the public in place of Rashford.
This is the result of poor competition. Without Marcus Rashford, the “Red Devils” were powerless to shake the net. After the score with Wolves at Old Trafford, MU striker Anthony Martial received many criticisms from the former Premier League players.
In the match against Wolves, Martial did not even launch a single shot despite playing the full 90 minutes. The most definitive player on the MU side was midfielder Bruno Fernandes with 5 appearances. In addition, he repeatedly signaled to his teammates to actively move.
Besides, the ability to coordinate the middle of MU also does not show the effectiveness. The people who create the most opportunity to finish teammates are Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka. Naturally, those opportunities came from the cross-field phase or cross the ball from the two corridors.
According to Ian Wright, Coach Solskjaer can consider using young talent Greenwood. The striker born in 2001 has scored 10 goals in all competitions this season. Long shot from Greenwood can bring goals for MU when confronting teams that organize the defense closely.
In addition, MU has another choice on attacker is rookie Odion Ighalo. He played in the Premier League in Watford and scored 16 goals. The Nigerian striker once won the best player of the month in December 2015.
However, Ighalo has turned 30 and his ability to integrate into the Premier League is still a question mark when he returns from the much lower level league.
On February 18th, MU will be a guest at Stamford Bridge of Chelsea. This is an important match for the race to win the Champions League. The long holidays will be very valuable for teachers and coaches Solskjaer.
The Norwegian strategist needs to be more calculated and prepared to avoid ineffective and assertive substitution. In the Wolves confrontation, he threw Lingard or Dalot on the field in the 87th minute. The remaining time was too little for them to bring efficiency.
