UK, Leicester- Manchester UnitedPremier League title ambitions were not given a significant setback by 2-2 draw There was evidence against Leicester, but at King Power Stadium that they were still growing into their role as real competitors.
The result keeps momentum during the busy execution of the fixture, but given that the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer team has advanced twice, this felt like a missed opportunity. Marcus Rashford And Bruno Fernandes, Lead the game in a total of just 14 minutes.
Rashford missed two great opportunities, coupled with defensive revocation Anthony Martial Not allowing goals while United has the individual quality and team depth to run the champion Liverpool Nearby, they lack the maturity of the team who knows how to grind results at critical moments.
Either victory here would have put pressure on Liverpool’s top, but after all, Boxing Day’s biggest winner was Jurgen Klopp. To Leicester. United is one point ahead, but the game is at hand. I will visit Anfield on January 17th. Their job is to make sure they are still within contact distance by then.
“We are disappointed,” Solskger later said. “The boys are flat in the dressing room. We have created enough chances to decide more goals. We defended well, but they spent the last moment. We created a big opportunity. It was a good end-to-end soccer match. “
Despite disappointment, United’s arrival at the second team at the table and being overwhelmed by the points is a sign of progress.
The Solskuger team has not lost in the league since January. Bruno Fernandes has players who have promoted the entire team since arriving from Sporting Lisbon almost a year ago.
During that time, he has played 28 leagues and is directly involved in 31 goals (18 goals, 13 assists).He added two to his tally with Leicester, first stabbing a difficult pass for Rashford to score first, and then competing in the race. Edinson CavaniIt became 2-1 with 11 minutes remaining.
“”[Fernandes] “It’s definitely a player who influences the results,” said Solskger. He is a brave boy.There may be a simpler path, but you can’t get rid of it Bruno, You want him to be the X Factor. “
ESPN FC’s Shaka Hislop looks back on Marcus Rashford’s Manchester United vs. Leicester indifferent day.
However, Solskger has the right to slip the lead twice and feel resentful on his side by admitting two bad goals. The first was eight minutes after Rashford’s goal and the second was just six minutes after Fernandez scored the goal.
“The pressure on the first ball wasn’t enough,” Solskger said. “Second, maybe I was able to stop the cross, or maybe I was a little unlucky in the deflection.
“When you score as often as we do, you sometimes have to accept you. We felt more valuable from the game. The first goal is to reach Harvey Barnes and block faster. I needed to. “
At one moment it becomes smooth, at another it becomes sloppy, and you realize that United is heading for the New Year. How close they are to the first title since 2013 depends on being more clinical in front of opposition goals and less adaptable in defending themselves.
United is undefeated in eight league games, with keyman Fernandez playing well and some teams appearing to be able to handle the exhausted season. Solskjaer has many reasons to believe he can challenge, but it reminds us why it’s hard to stay with the Liverpool team, which seems to have rediscovered relentless consistency.
With 6 points from two home games with wolves Aston Villa We will start the title talk again next week, presenting United with another opportunity to increase the noise around our credentials when we visit Anfield in mid-January.
Giving them that opportunity represents the progress of Solskger and his team. You need to take the opportunity to take the next step.
