Man Utd: Tough Fixtures Ahead, Solksjaer's Tactical Ability Questioned, Spurs Want Martial

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Ole Gunnar Solksjaer is currently under pressure from fans who are doubting his ability to sell Manchester United’s image as a big six club. Manchester United have had a lot of struggles in the new season, particularly in the other competitions namely the Uefa Champions League and the Carabao Cup.

Next week Manchester United will face Villarreal once again as they seek to secure three points to boost their odds in qualifying for the round of 16. It will be a difficult task since Ole Gunnar Solksjaer will have a lot of improvisation to do and assemble a very strong team. Also, the inclusion of Cristiano Ronaldo will be a must considering that he has a high fan appeal therefore, there are high chances that Solksjaer will bench Cristiano Ronaldo over the weekend, a precaution to keep him for Wednesday's showdown.

Anthony Martial

According to reliable sources, Tottenham are interested in signing Manchester United’s outcast Anthony Martial and could offer a swap deal in order to sweeten their proposal for the player. Anthony Martial is currently out of form, but Tottenham’s football director Claudio Paratici believes Nuno Espirito Santos is capable of squeezing the best out of the Frenchman.

It has also been rumored that signing Martial would be a contingent measure to find an immediate replacement for Harry Kane whose future with Tottenham is still not known at the moment. Harry Kane has been linked to Manchester City and with his contract set to expire at the end of the season, Martial’s recruitment would be considered a quick fix for Tottenham’s future problems.

Next Fixtures

Manchester United now have an uphill task in maintaining their Premier League dominance in the next six fixtures. Tactful thinking and precise instinct will be key for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer because he may have a flurry of talents in his squad, but may not have the perfect combinations or partnerships to maximize the players' potential. The next six opponents are no joke and match fitness will be a test for many players because Manchester United will be having at least 2 matches each week.
