YBY 2-1 MUN: 2 Mistakes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Made As Man United Lost Their Opening UCL Fixture

Manchester United opened their 2021/22 UEFA Champions League campaign with a shocking loss to Switzerland side Young Boys.

Manchester United took the lead in the 13th minute through Cristiano Ronaldo before Aaron Wan Bissaka was sent off before halftime for a poor challenge on one of the Young Boys' players. In the second half, Young Boys equalized in the 66th minute before they got a late winner in the 94th minute.

Here are two mistakes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made as Manchester United drew against Young Boys.

1. Using A Weak Squad:

Despite getting a comfortable win over Newcastle United in the Premier League last weekend, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer decided to make some decisions that highly affected the team.

He made 2 changes with Donny Van De Beek and Victor Lindelof being named in the starting 11. The changes that he also made meant that Ole Gunnar had decided on a defensive approach. He substituted both Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes off before bringing in Jesse Lingard and Nemanja Matic.

2. Changing His Tactics: 

Last Weekend where Manchester United won 4-1 against Newcastle United, Ole Gunnar played 3 midfielders (Bruno Fernandes, Paul Pogba, and Nemanja Matic). However, last night Ole completely changed his tactics and used 4 midfielders (Bruno Fernandes, Paul Pogba, Fred and Van De Beek). Both Pogba, Free, and Van De Beek played more of a defensive role meaning they were limited to going to attack.

What do you think Ole should do next time?
