Manchester United should be concerned about the dip in their form. The Red Devils are in the title race this season. But they failed to deliver ever since they claimed the top spot on the table. Manchester City is now 7 points clear of their rivals with a game in hand.
Last weekend Manchester United drew again in the Premier League against West Bromwich Albion. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s man found them behind within the 81 seconds of the game as Mbaye Diagne gave West Brom an early lead. But Bruno Fernandes came to the rescue again for the Manchester United. The Portuguese midfielder scored a volley to equalise.
Manchester United has secured just 10 points in their last 7 games. Manchester United fans have already started to panic after the side’s poor form in the last couple of games. Paul Pogba, Eric Baily has some injury issues as well. Some fans feel that United is no longer in the title race despite Solskjaer insisting he won’t let the blue side of Manchester run away with the league. After the game against West Brom, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said that, “I said we shouldn’t be talked about [in the title race]. A compliment to the boys we got into the position we are now. We won’t let them [Manchester City] run away with it – we’re playing them soon. We’re not giving it away early – no we’re not.”
Manchester United will take on Real Sociedad on Thursday in UEFA Europa League round of 32. After that they will face Newcastle United in the weekend in the Premier League.
