The Red devil’s manager,Ole Gunner Solskjaer,made his stance regarding the coming fixture against Liverpool known,during a press statement yesterday.In his press release,which came after an away defeat to Newcastle United,he termed the tie against the men from Anfield as a “perfect” one.
A quite optimistic Solskjaer,when asked by BBC Sports about the upcoming tie Furthermore,he said: “The international break is also at the perfect time because their heads(the players)need a bit of airing.It doesn’t help having a meeting tomorrow.
“They will go away with their national teams,meet their team-mates and come back fresh.
“We have had a good time together,we have prepared since the first day of pre-season,we have stuck to the same principles.
“We have not got the results today but we have to keep carrying on”.
United will be going into their next fixture,having won only three of their last eight Premier League games,leaving them only with nine points in eight games and,just three points shy of the relegation zone.Currently sitting at the twelfth position on the table,the Devils would be up against a determined Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool,who are on a fantastic 17-game winning streak,currently in the Premier League with a maximum twenty-four points out of eight matches.
Also,a furious Ole was reported to have deleted his Twitter account yesterday after it was flooded with various verbal assaults by some Manchester United fans,which was in lieu with their displeasure regarding the steady decline of the team under his watch.The fans had also on two different occasions,been accused of racist chants geared towards the duo of Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford,after they failed to convert penalty kicks awarded to United,during two of their eight Premier League outings.
The Norwegian hit-man now manager,had been brought in to replace Jose Mourinho towards the end of last season,after a very woeful campaign which saw Manchester United slip below the top four on the Premier League table hence,loosing out of the title race and out of the UEFA Champions League qualification zone for the 2019/2020 season.
Furthermore,engulfed in a bitter rivalry between manager and players,the management of the team had sort out solutions to an unending drama that was costing the club not only valuable points but,a looming distrust among its players.Therefore Ole was seen as a perfect bridge and replacement between the players and managers rather than the highly volatile Portuguese maestro Jose Mourinho.
Unfortunately,Manchester United finds itself again,in a familiar scenario likened to the case of the 2018/19 season,as the short meritorious flint and campaign of their new manager seems to be drawing to its close.Ole,who started this season’s campaign with a promising four-goal victory over arch-rival Chelsea,now finds himself in a dejavu,reminiscent of the inglorious days of Jose Mourinho,as his team now battles to stay afloat relegation waters.
The match against Liverpool would be played on Sunday, 20th of October,at Old Trafford,where Manchester United and Ole would be hoping to redeem their dwindling fortunes against a Liverpool side that are yet to lose or draw a single game since the start of the season.
