Manchester United lost to Liverpool at Old Trafford as they recorded their biggest loss of the season. Ole Gunnar Solskjær's side did not give enough to Liverpool in today's game. Liverpool came away with a deserved victory after being completely dominant at Old Trafford.
It wasn't the game most Manchester United fans might have expected. They have lost all hope of getting back into the title race once again. Ole Gunnar Solskjær will have to restructure his squad if he still wants to be their manager in the near future. Here are the mistakes Ole Gunnar Solskjær made in defeating Manchester United.
1. He started Cristiano Ronaldo ahead of Edinson Cavani: Edinson Cavani hasn't had a lot of playing minutes this season like he did last season. Ole Gunnar Solskjær chose Cristiano Ronaldo as his permanent striker but ignores the fact that Cavani was one of his best players last season despite fewer games. Edinson Cavani would have had more impact than Cristiano Ronaldo in today's game.
2. Starting Fred ahead of Paul Pogba: Ole Gunnar Solskjær has made Fred reappear in his starting lineup with Paul Pogba as a replacement. Ole Gunnar Solskjær should have substituted Fred for Paul Pogba, but instead he eliminated Mason Greenwood. Mason Greenwood didn't have a bad game but was taken out as Fred played every minute.
just minutes after Paul Pogba entered as a substitute, he received a red card for a serious foul. Manchester United were already losing 5-0 in the opening minutes of the second half and there was no way for them to get back into the game. The players were already frustrated and were making mistakes after mistakes.
