Manchester United have once again lost a game in which they were very inferior in the first half and were able to conceal many more goals. Solskjaer is proving unable to get the proper performance out of a squad that this summer added Cristiano Ronaldo, Varane and Sancho, so after this defeat he remains on the tightrope, if he was not already long ago.
The game started totally expensive for the locals. Manchester United had the ball but did not know how to create danger with it. Instead, Watford, every time they recovered the ball, quickly went on the counter with players like King, Dennis and Sarr, who were a nightmare for the defense red devil. It was King who after one of these counterattacks, shot De Gea and put the advantage for Watford. Manchester United were unable to stop the local attackers, who had several opportunities to score more goals, but it was not until the first half discount, when Saar, who had missed two clear occasions, impaled a ball at the opposite post and put the lead to two goals.
In the second half, Solskjaer was finally encouraged to line up Van de Beek, who responded with a goal and several dangerous passes. United looked like they could tie, but Maguire condemned the Red Devils with a highly avoidable sending off by inexplicably losing control of a ball at these levels.
The expulsion stopped the good moment of United, and Watford took advantage of it to abuse them and give joy to their fans. Joao Pedro in 92 and Dennis in 96, made it 4-1 for the locals and left the Norwegian coach in a very difficult position. In fact, it was heard at the Watford stadium ” you are getting sack in the morning“Which means, you’re going to be fired in the morning, we’ll see if they’re right.
