Manchester United did not withstand the shock on the Leicester pitch (4-2) on Saturday in the Premier League. Cristiano Ronaldo couldn’t save the Red Devils. At the same time, he landed in a catastrophic team collectively.
the Manchester United Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is already in the midst of a crisis. Despite his XXL recruitment, with the comings of Raphaël Varane, Jadon Sancho and the legend Cristiano Ronaldo, the Mancunian formation still has as much trouble, in the game as defensively, and chained a third match of the Premier League without a win, Saturday afternoon. A logical 4-2 loss to Leicester.
The meeting was magnificent at King Power Stadium, even if the Foxes especially offered a lesson in football by winning as a team against a number of individuals. The Red Devils opened the scoring, however, Mason Greenwood scoring with a sublime strike (19th). Youri Tielemans replied from a center which ended up in the opposite side net (31st).
Ronaldo not found
MU then had great difficulty in being dangerous, despite an attempt to “CR7” on Kasper Schmeichel (28th). But the five-time Ballon d’Or was above all not found or sought in too complicated situations, the OGS team playing a much less elaborate football than the other big names in the championship. United is also 5th with 4 points behind Liverpool, provisional leader and especially the next opponent (at Old Trafford).
Without Varane (but with a Harry Maguire at the pickup), United even suffered too much and then faltered in the last quarter of an hour, despite the… 7 saves of David De Gea. Caglar Soyuncu gave the advantage to his team following a scramble (78th), then Marcus Rashford, for his comeback to competition, equalized on a block, but Jamie Vardy, with a magnificent end (83rd), and Patson Daka, in added time (91st), allowed Leicester to win.
