It is the 13th loss in 26 games this season, with a winning rate of just 50 percent. Did you forget how to score a goal? How did the traditional prestigious club get to this point?
Manchester United’s repeated falls are sending shock waves.
Manchester United were shocked again on the 23rd (local time) when they suffered a crushing 0-2 defeat in the 18th round of the 2023-2024 English Premier League (EPL) away against West Ham United at London Stadium.
West Ham United, led by David Moyes, were 34.5% inferior in ball possession, but scored by Jarrod Boane in the 27th minute of the second half and Mohamed Kudus in the 33rd minute of the second half to win a thrilling victory.
Manchester United had nine wins, one draw and eight losses in 18 games this season (28 points, 18 points, and 23 points lost), falling to eighth place in the EPL. On the day, Manchester United showed poor performance again, as it had only three effective shots and failed to score a single goal.
After the game, Manchester United legend Paul Scholes said Manchester United had a “big problem,” while Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag said the players were showing “underperformance.”
Alan Shearer, a former England goalscorer, told BBC Match of the Day: “It’s embarrassing for Manchester United. They have 18 goals this season (in the EPL), and only Sheffield United (13 goals) have scored fewer. Manager Erik ten Hag said: ‘We have to stick to the plan, but I have no idea what the plan is. Something is very wrong.”
BBC Sport also questioned, saying, “What is happening in Manchester United at a time when you can’t score a goal, you can’t win the game, the number of injured players increases, and you continue to talk about the owner?”
The 13 losses in a pre-Christmas season are the most for Manchester United since 1930, according to local media. Throughout all matches, the team has won only once in its last seven games. 월카지노
Of course, Manchester United was not at its best as Casemiro, Harry Maguire and Lisandro Martinez were absent from the match. Midfielder Christian Eriksen was replaced only in the 35th minute of the second half.
To make matters worse, the absence of centre-backs Raphael Varane and Viktor Lindelof forced Ten Haq to use 19-year-old Willy Kambwala and 35-year-old Jonny Evans as central defensive starters.
