Luck has deserted the Red Devils in the past three matches – games they should have won with a wee bit of luck. Two missed penalties against Wolves and Crystal Palace and squandering a hatful of chances against Southampton last time out has put Solskjaer under the microscope.
The manager has put faith in the youngest side in the league and I have no doubt that he must be given time to implement his fast counter-attacking style of play.
There is already more urgency, fluidity and intensity in their style of play and most importantly,
the atmosphere around the club is definitely better.
Man Utd face Harry Maguire’s former side Leicester today and can certainly expect a difficult time against a Foxes side who sitting in third spot and are unbeaten so far.
There are doubts on Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Paul Pogba after both pulled out of their respective international squads last week but Anthony Martial and Luke Shaw are back in the side. Daniel James has been a livewire for the team and it is time for Marcus Rashford to start making use of the chances that come his way.
Brendan Rodgers side are a handful especially with the likes of Jamie Vardy, James Maddison and the creative flair of Youri Tielemens in their ranks.
But Solskjaer’s side should win this with the home crowd playing their part in what should be a entertaining game.
Wolves entertain Chelsea today in a potentially explosive encounter with Nuno Espirito Santo’s side looking for their first win of the season. The men in orange have drawn three and lost one in their opening four games and can surely do with a morale-boosting win before they start their Europa League adventure on Thursday.
Wolves are unbeaten in 16 games in all competitions at Molineux but have drawn three of their last five Premier League games at home.
Chelsea, under Frank Lampard, have been hit and miss this season so far and can do with a positive result after blowing a 2-0 lead to eventually draw 2-2 with newly-promoted Sheffield United last time out.
With both sides making slow starts to the new campaign, there is plenty at stake here. Wolves have a good record against the big clubs and have already held Man Utd to a draw at Molineux aso I am predicting an entertaining draw.
Arsenal visit Vicarage Road in tomorrow’s London derby in another tasty looking encounter that has the makings of a classic.
Watford will be boosted with the appoinment of Quique Sanchez Flores again after sacking Javi Garcia over the international break.
I think we will see a reaction from the Watford players as Sanchez Flores should give the Hornets a lift. It will be hard to get their first win against Unai emery’s side as the Gunners have got lots of quality going forward so I am going for a draw in this fixture.
