What has happened to Manchester United since that night in Paris? Having lost five in their last seven games, and barely getting through games in the Premier League, have the wheels fallen off Ole’s car?
Indeed, it has been a tough time to be a United fan. Tuesday’s midweek shambles showed everyone at the club just how far off the top level they are, with mistakes coming left, right and centre, there really is a call out for the form they had when the Norwegian took over back in December.
With a trip to Goodison Park later today, Ole will have to chop and change his side in order to get the result they need and really push for that top 4 finish.
Here’s a couple.
Drop Ashley Young
Time for Young is running out down in the United defence. His performances in the two games against Barcelona may have been the biggest reason as to why Manchester United are no longer in the Champions League, after all.
It’s crazy to think that Manchester United once signed him for £16.2 million (as per Transfermarkt).
All season, Young has pretty much just been the vocal help in the side rather than his actual performances, and with players like Richarlison bombing forward against him later today, it really does make the United fans sweat.
For being a former winger, the now turned wing back provided 11 crosses in the game against Barcelona, finding no teammate for any cross. Shocking, shocking stuff.
That for a Manchester United player is just simply not good enough, especially while bearing the duties of captain.
Start Luke Shaw
After being cleared to play again after his suspension in the Champions League, it really is a no brainer to start the England starlet in his usual defensive position.
Being one of the star performers for Manchester United throughout the entirety of this season, even under Mourinho, Luke Shaw has proven that he has what it takes on multiple occasions to emulate that of recent United favourite Patrice Evra.
Without a doubt, Solskjaer will have everything to improve from defence to attack, and including Shaw back into his defensive line is just the beginning.
