Manchester United Suffer Another Shocking Defeat as Speculations Indicate that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is On His Way Out
Man United’s disappointment was displayed on-field leading to a red card being handed to captain Harry Maguire, a player who has failed in his leadership of the team
Manchester United have suffered another shocking defeat marking their fourth consecutive defeat in their last five English Premier League matches. The ‘Red Devils’ got a 4-1 hammering from Watford, a team who a few seasons ago they could walk over like it was just any other Saturday for them.
However, the team is at one of its lowest points in history and many believe that this is to be blamed on the insistence of the club’s management to stick with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. At the end of the match on Saturday, the players were downtrodden, heartbroken, and admitted that everyone, including the players and management, let the club and the fans down.
A Despicable First Half for United
United’s first half was despicable. Watching the game as a Man United fan was a horror, to say the least as the first half swung off as if all United players were just chasing their tails and failing to do any defending. This gave a chance to Watford who scored two of their four goals in the first half thanks to Joshua King in the 28th minute and Ismaila Sarr in the 44th minute. After the half-time break, United’s Donny van de Beek gave a reply with a goal in the 50th minute. Unfortunately, despite him being seen to carry the team all through Saturday’s game, the goal did nothing to inspire the club’s players out of misery.
United's Stark Display of Disappointment on the Pitch
Instead, Man United’s disappointment was displayed on-field leading to a red card being handed to captain Harry Maguire, a player who has failed in his leadership of the team and conduct expected of a captain. Maguire’s quality as a player is also in question as he mostly underdelivers and is too careless with the ball leading to a weakened defense, goals, and even fouls.
