A terrible performance again by Man United as Arsenal overtake Tottenham.
I don’t seem to comprehend what’s going on with the Manchester United squad because it doesn’t occur to me that the coach is the team problem anymore, only a few players in the team are putting effort into their matches week in week out and it doesn’t count anymore. We have seen players individually winning matches for their club but that's not the case for United, everyone blames the coach for their terrible performance.
He does lots of surprising line up but that doesn't stop the team from grinding out results, it is so sad that the once ferocious Manchester United become so weak and trampled on by any team, I wonder what would be left of the team by the time the new manager takes the job. Not qualifying for the Uefa competition would leave the new manager in a tight spot to sign players when he arrives because every top player would want to play in the Uefa competition and it doesn't look like the available ones would make a difference.
Manchester United have conceded seven and scored only once in their last two matches, thanks to Ronaldo for the consolation goal because the encounter against Arsenal could have ended without a goal. His absence against Liverpool ended without a goal for United which is a terrible thing to speak of the team, they used to be one of the teams that were very agile in attack.
United conceded as early as the third minute as a result of an unorganized defense, all blames would have been on Maguire if he was in the match and his absence meant nothing. The team and board need to have a heart-to-heart discussion because something is not right with the team and the results are proof that would remain a dent on the club record for a long time.
Arsenal is currently having a great time, getting six points against Chelsea and Manchester United is a huge success for the club in crucial moments like this, and today's victory has strengthened their position in the top four race. They have successfully overthrown Tottenham Hotspur on the table and I believe that should give them a good edge going into their next game against Tottenham, the match has it stand might eventually be the decider of which team would join the likes of Manchester City, Liverpool, and Chelsea for the 2022 2023 Uefa Champions League experience.
Tottenham proved to be in shape for the spot after winning a series of matches and scoring quite good numbers of goals but it seems the team encounter against Brighton last weekend changed the tune of things; the loss became a setback for them in the top four race. I wasn’t expecting much from them against Brentford, a side that has proven to be worthy of staying in the top flight.
It was the same struggles for Spurs as we saw last weekend but they were able to take a point out of the encounter which leaves them two points behind Arsenal, Spurs were quite impressive in the second but still couldn’t get a shot on target like it happened last weekend. If it continues this way, especially against Arsenal, it could be the end of their top-four dreams.
Would they redeem the top four hopes against Arsenal? Time will tell.
Manchester City went wild without a pinch of mercy against Watford, they scored five times and conceded one today at the Etihad stadium. Gabriel Jesus played a huge role in the team's victory as he scored a hat trick, the goals have reduced the goal difference between City and Liverpool which could play a role at the end of the season.
Liverpool will play against Everton tomorrow, the match would determine if Liverpool can still catch up in the pursuit of the title as we approach the end of the season.
