Manchester United's recurring flaw, exposed and how its resolution could be Ole's game changer

Manchester United's form is currently concerning, and the only thing that will persuade United fans that they are in good hands is if Ole starts winning games in a row while dominating their opponents with the talent that they possess.

When it comes to dominating and outplaying their opponents, why can't Manchester United do it with their talented squad? Leicester vs Manchester United's post-match analysis by Brendan Rodger says it all.

 "I thought we started well. Their central players weren’t pressing, so we could be patient and work the ball through the pitch. We got into some really good areas and put pressure on their backline."

As seen in the image below of the Leicester vs Manchester United game, Brendan Rodger's revelation sums up Manchester United's major flaw.

When Manchester United players are without the ball, it is clear that they do not press and pressure their opponents. It's difficult to keep other teams uncomfortable without pressing, and if Manchester United allows Atalanta and Liverpool to be in their comfort zone, as they did Leicester last weekend, Ole is in for a tough run.

Manchester United have a Champions League Group F clash against Atalanta, at 10 PM EAT. What are your predictions about the match?
