Premier League week 34
Manchester United lost big time to Everton and were punched 4-0. The players did not show up and coach Solskjaer had to apologize to the fans, after the game, for such a por display.
A few days following Barcelona trashing 3-0, the United defense was again a no-show letting the Toffies score four times on them. That’s seven goal conceded in just a matter of days and Champions League top 4 places are getting distanced. Does this horrible week endanger the coach’s future?
He comments to the worst loss of the Premier League season:
“We have got to apologise to the fans, that performance was not good enough for a Manchester United team, from me to the players. We know we let the fans and the club down. That performance is difficult to describe because it was so bad. They beat us on all the basics.
We were beaten on all the ingredients you need, added to your talent, today. As I said last week as well, there is no place to hide on the pitch. It was 85 minutes before we had a shot on target. It’s not good enough. We know that.” “We just got thumped 4-0 and they [the fans] never moaned at our players. Which they could have done.
On the schedule ahead:
“We have City at Old Trafford on Wednesday.” [This game could decide on the champions should United beat City].
“That’s the biggest incentive we can have. Old Trafford, at home, in front of our fantastic fans. The fans were unbelievable today. In the short term, we have to focus on these two massive games.
If we win these games, we’re still in with a chance. There are 12 points to be won. It sounds too easy to look forward but we cannot dwell on this too much. In the long term, we’ll look at this but, short term, we’ve got to look at City and Chelsea.”
