Information ahead of Manchester United vs Tottenham
MU mired in a crisis. After a disappointing draw, the Red Devils were knocked out with a 1-4 loss to Man City. Even though this was only their second loss under Ralf Rangnick, United exposed all the outstanding issues, from professional qualities to fighting spirit.
At the Etihad, MU almost gave up in the second half of the second half, having led 3-1. According to statistics, the Red Devils only had possession of the ball… 8% in the last 15 minutes, a parameter described by experts as a “disgrace” for this team.
A week after the defeat, MU has not shown any signs of recovery because negative rumors still surround their dressing room. From Ronaldo’s arrogance to the true level of Harry Maguire, or most recently, Marcus Rashford’s future, everything has left United even more confused.
Same general change in midfield, but Tottenham are moving in the opposite direction. Antonio Conte is clearly doing better than Rangnick, at least in terms of controlling his stars. Harry Kane publicly asked to leave last summer but is now constantly praising Conte and opening up the possibility of staying at Tottenham.
With big teams, stabilizing the dressing room sometimes means more than just a tactical formation. In fact, Tottenham are on the rise and reigniting hopes for the top 4 and United are not, although initially, the Red Devils are in a much better position than the opposition.
Rangnick Makes MU Fans Regret Conte
Tonight’s game can prove it. Interestingly, Tottenham sacked Nuno Santo and appointed Conte right after losing 0-3 to MU in the first leg. At that time, Manchester United rejected the opportunity to get Conte’s signature to put their trust in Ole Solskjaer.
In the end, United still had to fire Solskjaer but no Conte and had to “fire” with Rangnick.
Many experts believe that Rangnick’s coaching role for 6 months is also a big problem for United. The players will clearly not trust, or even respect, a manager who will almost certainly not be in charge of them after this season. Therefore, it is not surprising if MU continues to lose to Tottenham and other big rivals in the near future.
