MU serious crisis: Solskjaer has 5 matches to save the chair

The crisis of MU can continue when 4 of the next 5 matches, they have to play away, the only home match to welcome Liverpool.

MU is playing bland football. Solskjaer’s football philosophy is not wrong, but what makes the “Red Devils” flutter lies in poor quality personnel and lack of class stars. Since their 4-0 win over Chelsea (August 11), they have not scored more than one goal. While the defense despite Maguire is still not safe enough.

Coach Solskjaer is still tough in the middle of a storm of criticism is increasing. He confirmed that he did not regret to let strikers Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez leave. Mourinho last year before being fired also said the same tone but in the end he was boss “MU beheaded”. According to the British press, Solsa could go into the footsteps of Mourinho if this October result does not improve.

This weekend, MU only had to meet the penultimate team Newcastle. This is an opportunity for Solskjaer to seek victory over pressure relief. However, away football is the fear of MU when they have not won any match since the beginning of the season. Newcastle actually have a poor performance, but they have a play of heat and physical strength.

Small teams like Astana or Alkmaar in the Europa League also make it difficult for the team, there is no reason Newcastle can not. But even with the difficulties in the yard of “Shots,” Solskjaer’s chair is still not shaken. Right in the next round, MU had to meet the “solitary defeat” of Liverpool. A heavy defeat can touch the pride of MU fans because of the rivalry between the two clubs.

3 matches later, MU were away. Up to now, they have experienced 10 matches in all arenas, drawn 4, lost 6. This statistic really makes MU fans worried. Solskjaer himself if there is no special reform in the game, the ability “Red Devils” to receive bad results still occur, and his chair could be overthrown in October or early November.

Manchester City won 3 – 1 over Everton and close the gap on Liverpool

Manchester City secured the reigning champions and won over Everton after a hard-fought match thanks to two-goal salvo in the second half. Now they are just within five points of Liverpool.

Gabriel Jesus to leap forward and nod beyond Jordan Pickford after Kevin de Bruyne collected possession on the edge of the penalty area and lifted in a first-time cross. The Belgian midfielder had supplied a sumptuous assist which led to the opening goal of the match.

But ten minutes later Everton hit back. Dominic Calvert-Lewin ensured the home side’s leveller by delivering the decisive touch on the goalline. Seamus Coleman lobbed a deft effort over the head of City stopper Ederson while Substitute Alex Iwobi squeezed a pass out wide and showed his quick feet.

Bearing down on goal, Sterling could only place his effort wide of the post although Riyad Mahrez had slotted a defence-splitting pass through the England star. Raheem Sterling squandered a golden opportunity from close range. The players of Man City proved that they could restore their lead on the hour mark.

Mahrez tried his best to dribble down the right. Aguero received the ball near the byline and he crossed. Pickford kicked the ball away, but six yards out and Sterling nearly missed, the ball is leaned back and blootered off bythe underside of the post. But luckily it bounces down and go over the line.

And that’s end of the game! City is just behind the leading Liverpool with five points, but it means they had to work hard to win the next match. Everton ranks fifteen, above the bottom three with two points. But their display against City is much-improved and Marco Silva surely gets goodwill and a little time.

Lukaku scored, Inter won over AC Milan

The first Milan derby in the new season at 1:45 pm on 22/9 ended with a convincing 2-0 victory for Inter.

The disappointing draw against Slavia Prague in the Champions League in the middle of the week caused Inter to enter the derby with Milan with the desire to assert strength.

The team of black and blue striped shirt showed that they were better prepared in terms of both force and tactics when they soon overwhelmed their rivals from the same city of Milan. Fighting against the 3-5-2 map of coach Antonio Conte seemed to be too overwhelming for Milan of Marco Giampaolo.

Inter completely outperformed the game and created a series of delicious opportunities. In the first half, rookie Romelu Lukaku had a situation facing goalkeeper goal Gianluigi Donnarumma but could not win. Danilo D’Ambrosio also finished the goal with a red and black striker.

VAR also rejected an Inter goal when determining Lautaro Martinez was in offside. The Milan side only responded weakly due to the single efforts of Suso and Rafael Leao.

Entering the second half, Inter concretized the overwhelming match with a goal by Marcelo Brozovic right after 49 minutes. The Milan defense was completely passive in this simple free kick. Goalkeeper Donnarumma was also powerless when the ball hit the foot of a home team player into the net.

Accepting the goal, Milan put up but Inter still played extremely alert when not retreating but still creating pressure. It all ended with Milan in the 78th minute when Nicolo Barella crossed the ball correctly for Romelu Lukaku to head high and hit the net against Milan. This is the third goal of the Belgian striker after 4 matches in Serie A this season.

In the few remaining minutes, Inter still put the ball on the Milan wooden frame 2 more times after the finishes of Matteo Politano and Antonio Candreva. Having won 2-0, Inter overcame Juve to return to the top of the table with a record of 4 wins after 4 rounds.

Liverpool set a new record after the victory over Newcastle

Liverpool set a new Premier League record after winning 3 – 1 against Newcastle in the fifth round.

The win against Newcastle also helped Liverpool set a new record in the history of the Premier League when it became the first team to have 14 consecutive wins and score at least 2 goals per game. Liverpool have scored a total of 40 goals, conceding only 11 goals and keeping clean sheets 5 times in this series.

Newcastle drew and lost at Anfield in the Premier League, since the 2-0 win in April 1994. But four points were won from the last two rounds, including the 1-0 victory at the big Tottenham team in the third round, more or less confident when Steve Bruce’s teachers and students entered the match early in the fifth round.

That belief was reinforced with the opening goal in the seventh minute in a quick counterattack. Liverpool reacted somewhat slowly after the goal. Klopp’s pupils often kept the ball above 75%, but they did not have enough sharp coordination to be dangerous. Newcastle kicked 5-4-1 and defended very solidly with the midfield playing deep.

It was not until the middle of the first half that Liverpool was pushed back, with the speed ball on the wings of Alexander-Arnold – Robertson. And the one that gave them a 1-1 goal.

Removing the psychological burden, Liverpool constantly caused waves towards the opponent. The pain of Origi, having to take a break to make room for Firmino – the striker was kept by Klopp for the Champions League midweek – from the 37th minute made the hosts more dangerous. Just three minutes after entering the field, the Brazilian striker immediately made a mark, with a dispute of stealing the ball from near the center of the field, and then poking Mane. The goalkeeper Dubravka rushed out, but could not break the ball and the Senegalese striker easily put the ball into the empty net.

After Wijnaldum, Arrnold, Firmino, Robertson and Van Dijk took turns kicking out, denied by the goalkeeper and Newcastle defender, Liverpool also succeeded in widening the gap.

Liverpool have three more points to stay at the top of the table. They also extended the winning streak in the Premier League to 14 games, the unbeaten circuit at home in the Premier League to 42 games. The 3-1 victory over Newcastle is also the 22nd consecutive unbeaten match of Jurgen Klopp. These are meaningful spiritual stepping stones for Liverpool before they start the campaign to protect the throne in the Champions League with a trip on Napoli at Wednesday September 18.

MU was happy about pushing Alexis Sanchez to Inter Milan

MU players were delighted when Alexis Sanchez was pushed to Inter Milan on loan during the summer transfer window this year.

Alexis Sanchez has made the MU dressing room divided when he only scored 5 goals in 45 appearances for MU, but enjoyed a towering salary of £ 500,000 / week. According to British media, many MU players are happy to see Sanchez being pushed to Inter Milan on loan during the transfer window this summer.

A source close to MU shared in The Sun newspaper: “He is not Messi, so why does the team pay him such a high salary”.

However, MU is still paying a large sum for Sanchez to persuade Inter Milan to share the burden. According to the British and Italian press, MU still pay 3/4 of Sanchez’s salary while the player plays in Italy, about 365,000 pounds/ week.

Thus, Inter Milan only cost a small fee to borrow Chilean players and paid Sanchez a salary of more than £ 100,000 / week this season.

Sanchez personally has declared he failed at MU because he does not play regularly. However, the Chilean player has never regretted his decision to join Man Utd.

“If they let me play for 90 minutes each game, I will not fail like that. But the fact is that I usually only have 60 minutes to play and not being let to play in the next match. I do not know why…

I am very happy to play for the national team. I am also very happy to play for Man Utd, but I always tell my friends I want to play. If they let me play regularly, I will show my best performance …

I have no regrets about my decision. I was happy to join MU, I always said that. It was the most successful club in England, although my time at Arsenal was also great. I am happy to play football at Arsenal.

But at that time, MU was thriving. They buy many players to look for titles and I want to join this team to win. “

Premier League sacked the first coach

Premier League has just witnessed the first coach lose his job. It was Javi Garcia of Watford Club. This is also a warning to famous leaders in the big clubs of the highest league of the fog country.

Watford Club has just issued an announcement they did not want. That is to fire coach Javi Garcia, only after the first month in this 2019/20 season. The English Premier League has only made four rounds, but the Spaniard has become the first coach to lose his job this season.

It comes from the extremely poor series of achievements of the Watford club. In August, Watford played 5 games, 4 in the English Premier League and 1 in the League Cup. The team, then led by coach Javi Garcia, lost 3 and drew 1, only winning 1 point in the English Premier League.

Watford’s only victory came against Coventry City in the League Cup. Watford’s tumbling performance is surprising, as the team is well prepared for the new season with 3 wins before the season starts.

From the case of Javi Garcia, a warning was sent to many other coaches in the English Premier League, including famous coaches. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Frank Lampard are the names that cause the most anxiety. In recent times, the two captains of MU and Chelsea disappointed in different ways.

After 4 rounds, the achievement of MU and the rich coach Solskjaer backed up. Starting the season like a dream with a 4-0 victory over great rival Chelsea, but then things gradually deteriorated for them. 3 consecutive rounds MU only drew and lost.

Moreover, MU’s gameplay is really chaotic, lacking ideas. Although coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is aiming for rejuvenation, the problem lies with Solskjaer himself. He lacked a clear tactical style. When Solskjaer lacked a defining style of tactics, the players also became disoriented.

Coach Pochettino is very disappointed with BLD Tottenham, with the lack of convincing achievement of the team. He wants the club to show its ambition to conquer major titles, from the English Premier League to the Champions League. Over the years, the reason Spurs has lived so well is because of Pochettino’s ability to utilize existing human resources. But to conquer great titles, he needs a lot more than that.

Pogba will continue to play for Man Utd

Man Utd coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists midfielder Paul Pogba still stay at Old Trafford despite rumors that he will move to Real Madrid.

Paul Pogba will continue to play for us,” coach Solskjaer said after a 1-1 draw with Southampton on August 31. “He has problems with his ankle, but the injury is not so bad. I hope he recovers to play for France next week, because I know he loves the team.”

Paul Pogba has long had a reputation to go to Real Madrid. The Spanish team also openly expressed their desire to have Man Utd midfielder, but the obstacle of this deal lies in the transfer value. Real have two days left to attempt, before the transfer market in La Liga closes on September 2.

Pogba is the focus of criticism, as Man Utd won only five points through the first four Premier League rounds. In the middle of the week, the fans sprayed paint on a sign at Carrington training ground, with the implication of wanting to get rid of Pogba from Old Trafford.

Against Southampton yesterday, the French midfielder continued to play badly. He lost the ball 20 times, 13 of which came in the first half. Pogba’s lackluster performance contributed to Man Utd’s ability to leave St Mary’s with three points, though more than the player in the last 20 minutes.

“We played well in the first 30 minutes, then a few players started to lose the ball sloppily and Pogba was one of them,” Solskjaer said of the match yesterday 31/8. “Everyone expected Pogba to be able to do anything, in every match. He had to defend, attack, dispute the ball well, tackle the ball, dribble, pass the ball well. Pogba is a excellent player but he is under a lot of pressure “.

Arsenal star revealed the reason for not joining AC Milan

Lucas Torreira’s representative said the Uruguayan midfielder really wanted to return to Italy for AC Milan during the transfer window this summer but was not allowed to leave.

Shining in the 2018 World Cup in Uruguay shirt, defensive midfielder Lucas Torreira immediately had a chance to advance his career when he joined Arsenal from Sampodria shortly thereafter in the same summer.

New rookie £ 26.5 million then underwent a certain impressive season and became the mainstay of the Emirates midfield scanner.

Torreira is considered a successful contract, so surely Arsenal want to keep him long at the Emirates. However, the 23-year-old star has made fans sometimes bewildered by admitting to liking the old life in Italy more than England, where he is still struggling because of the language and cultural barriers as well as the hard climate environment.

Hearing Torreira’s confession, AC Milan immediately planned to welcome him back to Serie A during this summer’s 2019 transfer window. However, after a period of negotiation, this potential deal was suddenly broken, although the Uruguayan midfielder’s foothold was not necessarily secured in the Emirates with the arrival of rookie Dani Ceballos.

Pablo Bentancur representative shared the reason for the failure: “We received the attention and specific suggestions of Milan, while Lucas himself considered the intention to return to Italy. He loves his old life more, but also understands that the right to decide is not entirely his. “

“Lucas’s future is still in Arsenal’s hands, and I think Milan need to go through his club. However, it seems that Milan did not persuade Arsenal success, although I do not know how much the offer has a specific value. Besides, Arsenal still needs Lucas in this new season plan and he is happy to stay at the club. ”

Tottenham vs Man City with a 2 – 2 draw

Being rejected by VAR in stoppage time, the defending champion accepted a 2-2 draw in the second round of the Premier League, on August 17.

This is a painful result for Pep Guardiola. Last season, they were also denied a goal by VAR in the fourth minute of injury time in the second quarter of the Champions League quarter-finals against Tottenham. The bad situation of crying and laughing makes Man City eliminated by the law of away goals.

Meeting Tottenham again, the will to ask for a debt in the Champions League last season may also become part of the motivation for many Man City players. They raised the formation and attacked the whole force from the beginning. The link between Bernardo Silva and Kevin De Bruyne makes Tottenham’s left wing frequently put on alert. The speed of Raheem Sterling and Kyle Walker also created conditions for Man City to have unexpected downfall.

Continuous pressure finally brings results to them. Bernardo lets go of the ball for De Bruyne to stumble without looking towards the far post, knocking out all of Tottenham’s defense. Sterling bandage hit the head in a position that was not attached to anyone, took down Hugo Lloris. However, just three minutes later, Tottenham unexpectedly drew 1-1, when the gap opened for Erik Lamela between the defense and Manchester City midfielder. Being equalized, Man City did not flinch. They continue to organize attacks and once again rise. Still coming from a combination of Bernardo and De Bruyne on the right, Sergio Aguero cut the ball and finished a delicate touch, ending an attack with the brand “Man City – Guardiola”.

But Mauricio Pochettino made a difference from changing people. Only seconds after taking over from Harry Winks, Lucas Moura headed home from a corner. Only 1m73 high but he turned very high to defeat Walker in the air combat phase. It was the second finish for Tottenham’s goal.

Guardiola put Jesus in the yard to replace Aguero, in order to improve his attack power. Become the center of Man City’s attacks, but the Brazilian striker played slightly personal, causing some opportunities to pass. After a headed header, he hit Tottenham in the second minute from a corner kick, but the goal was not recognized.

Man City dominated in most of the match time and finished 10 times more (30 versus 3). However, with just two shots to finish the goal, Tottenham has the same number of goals. In one day, all statistics were inclined to Etihad owners, fortunately not on their side. In stoppage time of the second half, Gabriel Jesus kicked off a Tottenham goal but after being assisted by VAR, referees Michael Oliver denied the goal as the ball was slightly touched by Aymeric Laporte.
