Why Manchester United Can’t Beat Teams from the Bottom of the English Premier League?

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Manchester United

After back-to-back wins against Tottenham and Manchester City, we all thought that Manchester United is getting significantly better.

However, the main issue seems to lie somewhere else. Manchester United struggled to create enough pressure against one…

Have Manchester United learned from their mistakes of last summer?

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Last summer transfer window was quite a difficult one for Manchester United. The Red Devils failed to acquire most of their top targets, which ultimately proved to be a fatal blow for now-former manager Jose Mourinho.
