Despite the big win in the Manchester derby, coach Solskjaer said that his Manchester United students could have won more bold.
Manchester United win derby victory: Solskjaer implicitly condemns students not to win more
Manchester United defeated Man City 2-0 in the Manchester derby, the focal match of the 29th Premier League. With Chelsea winning 4-0 Everton to keep the 4th position, Manchester United was in a position to win to continue chasing and despite playing with the “lower door” game, the team of coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took full advantage to goalkeeper Ederson’s mistakes to have 2 goals from Anthony Martial & Scott McTominay.
Manchester United‘s chances of scoring goals are much more than that, and although they are very happy at the performances of the students, Solskjaer coach after the game still implicitly reminds the ability of the attacking players. “There were two or three times today, if my players were paying attention around then there would have been a goal. Twice Daniel James should stretch, once for Bruno, once for Anthony, then once Anthony should have been level for Bruno. Those are the minor details I hope the players will improve further” he said.
“I feel honored to be the coach of this team and to lead a team with a very positive spirit of play. They give their all and I cannot ask for more, that will help us grow up ”.
Solskjaer said that although Man City is stronger and knows how to occupy the game, he did not call for passive game learning. “Of course your team made us defend, but with the will and the good communication, we were able to stop them. We sometimes come close to them on the other side of the pitch, when we play fiercely and target their full-back, ”he revealed, adding that Fernandes’ free-kick resulted in Martial’s goal being entirely created by two players.
Meanwhile, coach Pep Guardiola was not too strict with the students, especially goalkeeper Ederson, when speaking after the match. “Today we still play well but missed a few opportunities and conceded goals that should have been avoided. Ederson is an excellent goalkeeper, everyone makes mistakes and I don’t judge my players like that, ”Pep said.
However, the student Bernardo Silva knows that Pep will have a lot of reminders for the City players when looking back on this match. “A bad game, in my opinion, this is an unacceptable result. I think we started badly but conceded, and although we knew how to counterattack but could not block. We will watch this game again, Pep has an opinion about the game and he will definitely talk to the players,” he said.
Understand the situation
Coach Solskjaer changed from 4 defenders to 3 defenders with the intention of a counter-defense against a more-valued opponent. Meanwhile, Pep Guardiola coach wants to “wash the hatred” after the first two defeats should play Old Trafford but Man City still decided to play with three spikes in the 4-3-3 diagram. For Manchester City, the match is only honorable when Pep Guardiola teachers and students have no chance to participate in the Champions League next season due to a decision from UEFA.
Ole advocated raising the trap with a defensive kick that the bridge was rookie Bruno Fernandes. The ball from Fred and Matic was passed into space in front of Bruno for the Portuguese boy to “divide the cake”.
Kevin De Bruyne is injured, but the City team still has many options to attack the opponent’s goal. Guests have the opportunity to come but England international Raheem Sterling could not beat goalkeeper De Gea. With so many Manchester City-class stars, as usual, they still dominate the game, even if they are a different team. The narrow entrance made the Manchester United goal as blocked by a 2-story bus. The match occurred in a counterattack 31 minutes when Bruno Fernandes earned a free-kick.
For a long time, people only knew the technique of dribbling and kicking by Bruno Fernandes. This time, he made a skillful flick of the ball through the fence, enough for Martial to penetrate the restricted area to shoot a decisive shot into the near corner to take the host over. No. 9 threw a one-touch kick to defeat goalkeeper Ederson in the excitement of the red devil fans. Manchester United holds the ball and passes the ball with only 50% of the opponent but what they have is the goal, the style of scoring “street football” makes Pep Guardiola spicier.
At the beginning of the second half, Gabriel Jesus came on to replace S.Aguero in the hope that the Brazilian player’s personal technique will break down the Manchester United defense. The Premier League champion increased direct attack and made many long shots to make it difficult for goalkeeper De Gea. Ole Solskjaer was forced to launch defender Eric Bailly into the familiar 4-4-2 scheme to protect the score. Even when McTominay came on for Bruno, the hosts were 4-5-1.
Being forced repeatedly, Manchester United still held a few sharp counterattacks. If Daniel James did not play too personally, passed to Bruno Fernandes in the vacant position, they would soon have 2-0. The second half of Manchester United only held the ball 21% of the time, they advocated giving the ball but not the pitch to the same city opponent, stalking and waiting.
Scott McTominay scored 2-0 in the 90th minute of Scottish midfielder Scott McTominay from Ederson’s goal kick. Man City created an overwhelming control of the ball but stuck in the scoring phase. Manchester United only held the ball 27.7% of the match but finished 12 times while the number of shots of Man City was only 7, which is the difference.
