Manchester United News and Notes: Solskjaer, De Gea, Fernandes

Share

Chelsea FC hosted Manchester United at Stamford Bridge with the two sides playing to a nil-nil draw in which nobody lost, technically. Except for those who watched it. It was boring, most certainly, as the two English giants clubs have now finished their league meetings with over 180 minutes played with no goals scored.

It’s hard to make a case that the United of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer are more compelling and entertaining than how they were under Louis van Gaal or Jose Mourinho. (For the Chelsea news and notes go here) Take a look at the tweet below, it really says it all:

Chelsea hosted Manchester United on Sunday, and the two sides played to a goalless draw in which there were no losers, except for anyone who tuned in and expected entertainment.

This was dull, no doubt about it and there a ton of reasons for that, many of which are spotlighted in the piece published on Goal, linked below. It’s a good read and I suggest you read it some time.

Share

Tomorrow brings another face-off between managers Thomas Tuchel and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. In October 2019, Tuchel, then leading Paris Saint-Germain, became the first manager to lose a Champions League knockout round tie at home after having gone up 2-0 in the away leg.

It was Solskjaer’s United that beat him, in a match that essentially got OGS the eventual upgrade from interim to full time manager. Probably still the Norwegian’s greatest triumph as United manager, on the side, Tuchel said it sent him on a downward spiral for a couple of days.

Arsenal FC Predicted Starting XI at Leicester City

Arsenal are back in Premier League action as they travel to Leicester City on Sunday. It is certainly not going to be easy against a team that is overachieving once again and involved in the top four race until the end.

Chelsea FC host Manchester United in one of the biggest matches of the Premier League weekend. Thomas Tuchel has the Blues moving up the table, getting results through solid defensive play and keeping the opponents off the score sheet.

Yes, there are a few players in his side that are likely angry about not getting more playing time, and justifiably so. However, you can’t argue with results and Tuchel is getting them, so it is unlikely he’ll switch up his lineup at this time.
