Premier League

Opinion: 3 Things Affecting Manchester United's Performances This Season


Many Manchester United fans have predicted that the Red Devils will win the Premier League after the club completed the signing of several top players. However, there are several reasons why the Red Devils may not be able to win the Premier League. 

1. There is an excessive amount of hype

Following the signings of Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho, many Liverpool fans continued to declare on social media that the Reds would undoubtedly win the Premier League. However, this could have a negative impact on the team's overall performance (or positively). 

Because of the excitement surrounding the team, the players would like to finish the season in the first, second, or third place in the league; however, this is an extremely difficult goal to achieve. 

2. There are too many players in the same position

Despite the fact that Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho were purchased as soon as the club completed their transfers, these two players originally played in the same position, that of a left winger, with Ronaldo having the ability to play as a center-forward. 

Despite the fact that the club began the season with Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho, Sancho has been playing as a right-winger, but the club expects Marcus Rashford, who is now injured and playing as a left-winger, to return in the near future. As a result of the overpopulation, the squad would be forced to play Sancho as a right winger, Marcus would play as a left winger, and Ronaldo would play as a center forward in order to accommodate all three players. 

3. Role Confirmation

Manchester United's most recent Premier League encounter, against Aston Villa, ended in a 1:0 loss, although the club had an opportunity to tie the game in the dying minutes of the game thanks to a penalty that the referee handed them. In the penalty box, Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes had a discussion about who should take the penalty; Bruno eventually took it and lost it. The debate around this incident is whether or not the coach should have selected his first and second penalty takers before the squad played a match. This is the responsibility of the coach, and it is something that should have been addressed before the team competed in any contest. 

If this pattern of events continues, the team would suffer greatly since, if a permanent penalty taker had been selected prior to the match, the player would have had the necessary confidence to take the penalty shot in question.
