The inevitable shortcomings of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer are being exposed now expectation levels have rocketed, with United losing three of their last five matches across all competitions. It would have been four of the last five if Villarreal had not let Solskjaer off the hook with their woeful finishing.
If the United boss keeps sticking to his current philosophy of ‘go and have a go lads’ with the hope of an individual winning the game for him, then they are of course vulnerable at 4/9 with Sky Bet this weekend. Everton – with an experienced manager in their ranks – have the tools to hurt United on the counter-attack and to frustrate them by defending deep and in good numbers.
I’m expecting another very disorganised United showing, especially without Harry Maguire’s leadership skills from set plays. This should be an area where Everton can find routes to goal.
In matches where Maguire is missing, United are very vulnerable at defending set pieces. Since the start of last season across all competitions, United have averaged an ‘expected goals against’ figure of 0.3 per 90 minutes without Maguire in the side from corners and free-kicks – a huge and worrying increase in terms of their defensive output in that area. In that time, they’ve had to defend 55 set piece situations and have conceded 21 shots at goal – with four of those producing goals, including Kortney Hause’s winner for Aston Villa last weekend.
Many a Liverpool starlet will have had this exact conversation at the club’s academy over the years as the Reds looked to unearth the next Steven Gerrard or Jamie Carragher.
But before the emergence of Trent Alexander-Arnold and Curtis Jones, Liverpool’s search for their ‘next Gerrard’ had proven fruitless.
Sure, there had been many hopefuls over the years. John Welsh, Danny Guthrie, Jay Spearing, Conor Coady, Jonjo Shelvey and Jordan Rossiter to name but a few.
Yet they ultimately, and understandably, all failed to live up to such a tag, making varied impacts with the Reds before enjoying varied success in their careers across the English football ladder.
