After an encouraging end to last season to secure a top-four finish in the premier league, Manchester united opened the 2020/2021 premier league campaign with the worst home record. This is United’s worst start to a home league campaign since 1972-73.
Manchester united have failed to win all of their four home league games this season, leaving Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester united team languishing just six points above the relegation zone in 15th place. The likes of Crystal Palace, Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Arsenal have all gotten points from Old Trafford this season.
Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has recently come under pressure with the club after a sixth straight league game without a win at home leaves United down in 15th.
Against Chelsea in their premier league clash, Manchester united looked stronger and they were disappointing not to have gotten all three point from the Chelsea game. But Chelsea will have had their newest keeper Edouard Mendy who is currently rated as the best goal keeper in world football at the moment to thank for a master class performance.
United will follow up the performance in their midweek champions league 5-0 win with a dominant display over an inform RB Leipzig in the Champions League on Wednesday.
Against Arsenal on Sunday, Manchester United looked below pair, and Manchester United Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted that Manchester United “never turned up in the first half”.
it was Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who gave Arsenal the lead from a penalty kick after a moment of ill-discipline from Pogba. Aubameyang who had not scored a Premier League goal since signing a new three-year contract six weeks ago ended his goal drought at Old Trafford on Sunday by sending De Gea the wrong way to score and end Arsenal run of 29 games without a win away from home against their ‘big six’ rivals stretching back to January 2015.
Manchester United boss blasted his team for a sloppy performance against Arsenal on Sunday after the match;
“We never turned up in the first half, they were better than us,” said Solskjaer. “We weren’t at the races.”
“Stay on your feet. Paul knows he’s made a mistake there,” added Solskjaer, who hinted complacency may have been to blame for his side’s display.
“When you’ve played well, sometimes you take your foot off the pedal. That’s not how it works.
However, Solskjaer played down the significance of United’s home form, with his side simultaneously on a club-record run of 10 straight away wins in all competitions.
“Home and away form is out the window with no fans in the stadium, 100 per cent.
“Just look at the stats now with the amount of away wins all over. Home form, away form, doesn’t mean too much.”
