Many football fans have been looking forward to today’s outing between Manchester United and Leceister City Football Club. Sadly for Manchester United, it was a huge defeat as Leicester City won on a 4-2 count. In this article, we shall be looking at the three (3) players who are responsible for Manchester United’s defeat to Leicester City.
1. I am strongly of the opinion that the first player responsible for Manchester United’s loss to Leicester City is Bruno Fernandes. This is because the chances he ought to have converted to goals weren’t being converted. During the first half of the match, he was served many passes which would have led to early goals for the club but he didn’t make anything good out of the clear goal chances.
2. The second player responsible for Manchester United’s loss is no other person but Harry Maguire, the club’s captain and chief defender. After the first half ended on a draw, Harry Maguire didn’t ensure that the defense line remains “unpenetrable” like it was in the first half. Instead of ensuring that there’s a strong connection between himself and other players who were also defending, he committed cheap defense line errors which led to the huge defeat in their away match.
3. The third player responsible for Manchester United’s loss to Leicester City Football Club is Paul Pogba. The France International wasn’t providing accurate chances while in possession of football. Also, he’s known to be someone who oftentimes delays passes or goal chances. During the match today, he did the same thing still. Instead of providing clear-cut chances which are to be converted to goals by the main strikers, Paul Pogba wasted many chances which contributed to their eventual loss.
