With much expectations from the home fans to see United get back to winning ways. As they welcomed the toffees to Old Trafford. The team which struggled past the yellow submarines in mid-week commitments.
Wan Bissaka made a return to the team, and so is Luke Shaw. With Varane partnership with Victor looking still with much work to be done. Despite coming from the bench in several occasions.
Martial repaid Ole's faith by opening the scoring for the home side towards the end of first half. On return to the second half. The red side of Manchester did come back with agility and aggressiveness.
But lack of creativity was surely a big problem to the team. Actually the visitors had three clear scoring opportunities in the first half. While coming back for the last 45 minutes.
The manager brought in Sancho, Cristiano and Pogba. In the expense of Cavani, Martial and Fred. But almost immediately as they came in the Merseyside blue equalised.
Manchester United hoped the introduction of Cristiano was going to rescue the team again. But unfortunately the game ended in a draw. And possibly the most scrutinised man will be Ole Gunnar.
A look at his squad selection will be questionable as dropping. Cristiano Ronaldo for Cavani wasn't a good idea. Compared to the team is at home and looking to bounce back from Villa defeat.
Hence a more attacking approach and possibly deploy two strikers. Starting with out of form Greenwood instead of a rejuvenated Jesse Lingard. Which didn't really make any difference.
As the young academy graduate made no crosses neither created any clear cut chances. Fred has been out of form and it would have been wise. For the boss to drop him for Pogba or even try Van de Beek.
While again making a substitute of Cavani instead of letting him upfront with Cristiano. And bring in Sancho for Greenwood. There was a problem in United's creativity and that may have been.
Due to heavy reliable burden to Portuguese international Bruno to deliver those killer passes. A share of the responsibility with Mata or Jesse Lingard. Would have done the Norwegian International a huge favor.
