Manchester United is no longer among the best four out of four of the six seasons since Alex Ferguson left the management of the club and fans are dealing with their momentum status as Premier League also-rans.
It’s not so clear whether United’s manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can make United a strong force to contend with again just because since their last Premier League title in 2012-13 or whether they are confronting another period of disturbance and torment.
It is hard to tell what’s in store from Solskjaer‘s Man United, who delighted in a purple patch after the Norwegian supplanted United’s former coach Jose Mourinho, yet drooped alarmingly towards the finish of last season.
At one phase they looked prone to complete in the main four however there was the doubt they were getting the rub of the green thus it demonstrated.
Manchester United battle finished with a cry as they drew 1-1 at relegated Huddersfield and after that, they were beaten 2-0 at home on the last day by Cardiff, who were also heading off of the Premier League.
A gap of 32 points to champions Manchester City was humiliating and many reconsidered whether the club had been in a hurry to name the moderately unpracticed Solskjaer to the full-time coaching position.
Manchester United won’t have Champions League football to paper over the breaks during the coming season, with Thursday evenings in the Europa League ringed in the schedule.
The club have had a positive pre-season yet there are as yet waiting issues that should be tended to – Paul Pogba’s future is still in uncertainty and Solskjaer needs to grapple with the problem of a failing to meet expectations Alexis Sanchez.
Solskjaer’s club had issues at both ends of the pitch last season. They scored 30 goal less than City in the Premier League and conceding 54 goals, the most they had conceded in a league season since 1978-79.
The 20-time champions frantically need a positive begin to revamp certainty that they can challenge at the sharp finish of the Premier League.
Anything less and the blades could be out for Solskjaer.
