Manchester United: Fans can’t believe Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s defensive tactics vs Manchester City

Loads of Manchester United fans have been reacting to a moment from Tuesday’s defeat to Manchester City, as they are baffled by the decision to play a high defensive line against the Premier League champions.

As Arsenal showed at the Emirates a few weeks ago, Manchester City are one of the last teams you want to play a high line against.

With Kevin De Bruyne’s forward surges and excellent passing, together with the pace of Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez, it really is asking for trouble, and trouble is exactly what Manchester United got.

With the score at 2-0 to the visitors in Tuesday’s Carabao Cup clash at Old Trafford, De Bruyne broke away and forced an own goal to make it 3-0, and fans are shocked by the defending in the build-up.

Should Manchester United sell Jesse Lingard?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Victor Lindelof bizarrely decided to press a ball he was never going to win, leaving him completely out of the equation, while Phil Jones and Brandon Williams were both caught way too high up the pitch and Aaron Wan-Bissaka lazily sauntered back into the fray.
