Man City v Liverpool

Wembley Stadium - 30/7/22 - 17.00pm

MAN UTD TEAM NEWS

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s been backed big time so we need to win a trophy. 

He’s got Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane so we should now be pushing for a silverware, at least.

We should really be aiming to win the title but that all depends on whether Man City buy Harry Kane. If they do, it will be very hard to compete with them.

We’ve done well in recent seasons on the counter but we need to be more of a possession-based side. It’s all well and good against a top-six side on counter but when you’re at home against a team like Crystal Palace you need to be able to dominate.

The arrival of Sancho should help in that respect. He’s shown he can create and score goals in the Bundesliga so hopefully he can replicate that in the Premier League and connect with the likes of Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba. 

I’m also hoping for a resfreshed Bruno. He tailed off at the end of last season which is understandable given he played 72 games.

He’s been a brilliant player for us but there’s always room for improvement. He needs to be tidier in possession because a lot of our issues came from giving the ball away in midfield.

Bruno Fernandes has 6 assists in his 5 Premier League Games this season.
