Experts believe that it is time for Manchester United to fight seriously for the gold medal in the league. And with players like Jadon Sancho and Raphaël Varane, they see no reason why they shouldn’t.
– This is the big test. Solskjær’s big season. He’s got the support, the signings and the time, so now there has to be a real ‘battle’ for the league title. I think they can fight.
This is just days before the new Premier League season kicks off, says TV 2 commentator Oyvind Alsker.
And in the days leading up to the premiere, one would quickly think this could be a crazy season, especially if you look at the four teams that the Falcon believes are the league gold between:
Manchester City did the defending champion Jack Grealish to buy a recordHarry Kane is hunting. Champions League winner Chelsea is on the cusp of it To secure Romelu LukakuLiverpool get Virgil van Dijk back, Manchester United bring him back In Raphael Varane And Jadon Sancho.
There are two players with great resumes. And then it was well thought out. Solskjær appears to be keeping the common thread going by rejuvenating and improving the team, and in this way lays the foundation for the fight for the title.
And the hawk believes Solskjaer is totally dependent on that.
Now they have to be close to Manchester City. Otherwise, it is difficult to indicate progress. The list is probably there that you should more than 90 points. Not many points left, says TV 2 commentator.
– Knives are sharpened instantly
Manchester United finished second in the Premier League last season, but were also far behind city rivals who won the league by 12 points. In December, Solskjaer was coach of Manchester United for three years, but he is still waiting for his first title.
In May they were close, but the season reached its peak In the final loss to Villarreal I am the European League.
On Saturday at 13.30, Manchester United will open the season at Old Trafford against Leeds United, a classic in English football. The pre-season ended with an impressive 4-0 home win against Everton.
Evind Berenhoved-Holth, journalist at united.no, has been throwing the five dices in the transfer window to Manchester United so far, but stresses that it increases the pressure on Solskjaer.
– Knives are sharpened instantly. You can’t stand mid-season with this team, he says.
He also agrees with Al-Saker that the goal of the season should be first and foremost to be seriously involved in the Gold League battle. It doesn’t stress the prizes as much.
The FA Cup did not save Louis van Gaal nor did the Europa League save Jose Mourinho, he points out.
– I think management is happy with a manager who has such progress and makes so little noise that they want patience with Solskjær. It was then an extenuating circumstance for Solskjaer that he had players from four different coaches, but now he can soon handle the eleven he has brought for himself.
There are not many excuses at United now.
