Pressing Machine: Incredible Stats Prove Ralf's Huge And Immediate Influence

Manchester United fans are fascinated by Ralf Rangnick's immediate impact following today's 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace. Clearly, numbers do not lie, and the statistics below demonstrate how effective they were. 

Manchester United appeared to be unable to trouble their opponents in Solskjaer's last games, despite having arguably the best attacking options in their squad.

Rangnick started his first game with an attacking forward line of Ronaldo, Sancho, Rashford, and Bruno Fernandes, and based on how dangerous they were in the first half, this could be a quartet we see a lot of. 

Rangnick deployed his full backs high up the pitch, allowing United to perfectly press high, unsettling Palace, who were stuck in their own half at times. Despite their full backs taking this approach, Manchester United managed to keep a clean sheet, with David De Gea having an easy job as Palace were unable to trouble him. 

Even though Manchester United did not score enough goals, today's game was fantastic. Imagine how they will react after weeks of training under Rangnick if he can get this reaction in one full training session.
