    Which other tactics did you notice? What could each team have done differently?

    • Pedro Ferreirinha

      @Erik Anders yeah agreed that's why I think there isn't a perfect tactic. But i would love to see someone try the tactic 3-4-3 but with a twist: the 3 UP front being 3 offensive midfielders - in the sense that you would look for a lot of movement, creativity, People that could appear either in the midfield, on the wings or the finish the moves depending of what the teams need sat that moment and it would also make ir very Hard to deffend against. But that would require a certain type of player to play in those positions. Imagine playing like that with Reus, Brandt and Thorgan Hazard for example.

      Pedro Ferreirinha yeah i agree but the only problem is that you have two midfielders if you come up against 4-3-3 you will be outnumbered in the center of the pitch

      @Erik Anders its not that no one figured out kloop system. I am sure most manager did figure out. but knowing the weakeness n exploiting the weakness are 2 diferent things. The quality of liverpool squad bcome better (their understanding to Kloop tactic deepen) n they (the players) know each other more (deeper chemistry). Just look at Fabinho. He is like diferent player compared to last season

    • Pedro Ferreirinha
      Pedro Ferreirinha Month ago

      @Erik Anders I would say that a 3-4-3 that can easily be turned into a 5-4-1 in defence is probably one of the most complete tactics. 3 at back help you in build up and also keep the team strong at back against counters; the wingers can be used in the half spaces in attack but need to help you in defence; the wing backs give you the width but they need to track back when you lose possession and you should have a duo in midfield that can be good creating game and also destroying. But tactics are fluid and no answer is perfect. Also, if you found a perfect tactic, for sure managers would find a way against it quickly. I think in the future what will give you wins will be the ability to change tactics and roles mid game quickly reacting to game events. The players will have to know how their roll changes and adapts with everything that's going on

    The most important aspect why Ole won this match was how he kept Silva and De Bruyne out of the game. Fred and Mc did a fantastic job, their eyes were always on them.

  • donmie

    My view:
    1. Pep should have put both Sterling & Benardo Silva narrow:
    i. To occupy both the FB & force MU to defend narrow, open up the space at the wing to be exploited by Walker & Angelino. Thus, forcing Rashford & James to be at deeper starting position, eliminating chance for both of counter attack.
    ii. To create confusion between AWB-Lindelof and Shaw-Maguire on who to cover who (Benardo-Sterling). If MU choose to assign Fred-McTominay to cover Benardo-Sterling, then Silva & KDB would have the freedom to dictate the play whether in half spaces or on the wings.
    2. Play with flat backfour (with Otamendi) and Fernandinho at DMF:
    i. Neutralising Rashford, James and Lingard (5 v 4).
    ii. Let the attacking 5 (Sterling-Silva-KDB-Benardo-Jesus) take on MU back 6 (AWB-Lindelof-Maguire-Shaw + McTominay-Fred)
    3. Otamendi should start:
    i. Better aggresion on Martial (Martial weaker in physical duel & often easily frustrated by aggresive treatment by CB)
    ii. To allow Fernandinho to play mainly at DMF vs Lingard. Fernandinho has better mobility than Rodri.

    I think other clubs in the premier league should def try to use this against city. It is the best strategy I have seen used against City. It really nullified their threat and frustrated them. Even the City supporters resorted to throwing bottles and lighters at Fred out of anger.

    Pep turned in Arsene. It's time Pep fucks off from City or City will be self destructing. With all the players he got, he still couldn't beat United. I hate when managers talk about injuries. He has got enough academy players which he never pulls one out. What's the point . Please Pep, I thank you for the two titles but you gone off the boil now. That's why Sir Alex Ferguson will always be the greatest manager in premier league.

    Had Ole brought in a third centre back at around the 70th minute, city would never have had a goal. A thirs centre back would have created a difficult situation for city. Wan-Bissaka was being helped by Mctomminay in the second half to contain Sterling since he was the main channel, De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva created an overload for Luke Shaw who was being helped by Fred. Man United should be grateful Walker did not push up a lot since both Fred and Shaw would have been overwhelmed. With a the centreback, Maguire would have become the sweeper in the defence, simply clearing balls. Lindelolf would have been able to help out Wan-Bissaka and I case Tuanzebe would have helped out Shaw. This would have freed McTomminay and Fred to focus on DeBruyne and Silva. This would have stifled City's creativity and reduced thier chances of getting a goal.

    Scott McTominay vs David Silva
    Aaron Wan-Bissaka (MOTM Citeth tried everything to get passed him unbelievable defensive performance) vs Raheem Sterling
    Jesse Lingard vs Rodri
    Marcus Rashford (should have a hat-trick) vs Kyle Walker
    Dan James vs Angelino
    Harry Maguire+Victor Lindelof vs Gabriel Jesus
    Anthony Martial vs John Stones+Fernandinho
    then there's David De Gea briliant save that shot from Mahrez vs Ederson failing to saved Martial's shot
    should have 3-4 nil by half time

    SIYINCABA DUBE Month ago +1

    United goals where stupid..both Rashford and martial was not super fly..the goals that would have made headlines where the chances that rashford missed three chances he missed with lingard a fouth. They need to kick the ball harder when taking angle shots not thinking that they see an open space and just shoot thinking they have scored when not. Watch messi when he scores angle shots. Hard and quick curved knowing that the goali will be a second late diving to cover the open angle and find the ball in the net. Rasford and lingard same with martial needs to master the angle shot missed goals.

    It will be better for Ole to sign a right left footed winger and To bring Daniel James back on his left wing (he will provide more assists and goals) ..This will increase efficiency during attacking the opponent team and to welcome P. Pogba into role number 10 (lingard should be out). 4-2-4 Formation: Luke Shaw,Lindolof,Maguire, Bissaka..Fred and Mctominay.. Pogba,James Martial and Rashford..GK: DG after signing a right left footed winger formation will change into 3-5-2. If yes draw your views.

      While playing with big teams the opponent often play more attacking and united could score with counter attacking but playing with small teams the opponent usually likes to play defensive where utd doesn’t have such creative midfielders to creat chances .Thats why they struggle with smaller teams.

  • Neem Noa
    Neem Noa Month ago +10

    People say Ole can only play counter-attacking football and park the bus. But the fact is there is an evolution for every team. Attacking space is way easier than attacking tightly-knit defences sitting deep. There is a reason most mid-table teams adopt this style, especially against better opposition.

    United's squad is very thin at the moment, and very young. Pushing the defence high-up, and playing for possession, trying to dominate teams, that is only possible at the highest level with well drilled, elite players. United is not there yet. You can try and play this style with an inexperienced, inferior squad: most smaller teams that try it struggle at the bottom of the table. In the very competitive Premier League, a certain pragmatism is needed until you can build a world-class squad that is ready to dominate.

    So all in all, I don't think Solskjaer can't play other types of football. I think he is forced into this style by what is available to him, and by the demands of the fanbase and the owners. People keep saying they'd be happy with a loss if the team played nice football. I think this is a delusion. Most fans, and the owners as well would be fuming if we finished outside the top 6 (and most people want top 4). This is a results business and Solskjaer's hands are tied in this sense.

    Uniteds counters were amazing. I loved how Scotty and Fred effectively closed down the half spaces. Ole showed his flexibility, against Spurs they had similar equal possession, against City they barely had possession. These 2 victories will buy him a lot of time.

    EVER MENDOZA Month ago +14

    this is the exact struggle United has been having throughout this season..they are playing simple and going to counter attacks but that only works against teams that like to dominate the game..wich are the top teams, that's why Ole do well agints big teams.. but when it comes to more defensively teams those who dont propose to attack, United has trouble breaking the defense couse Ole don't know how to build up, he always rely on attacking the defense when they are out of shape(ususally in a counter attack lol) same style of play had Liverpool last season where mane and Salah had crusial parts couter attackig.. this year liverpool fixed that part, they still letal couter attacikg but now they also like to build up from bihind and dominate the whole game.

      i'm against you all on the reasons man u struggles against smaller teams,coz the team always scores more than two goals against those teams.my reasons is at the start of the season the team was struggling for consistency due to injuries and other stuffs.den the team picked up the momentum and we were scoring beautifully many goals until mctominay was injured too and there came some problems and when he returned and picked up our form again against spurs wow and city.also i start to believe pogba is the virus in the team coz the team is always unsettled when he is around.

    • Abdul Aziz
      Abdul Aziz Month ago +1

      @EVER MENDOZA and Liverpool is slightly suffering. They haven't kept a clean sheet for a while now, the lack of a attacking midfielder is forcing them to not completely focus on their job that is defending. Hopefully Alex Ox can fill that midfielder role or Liverpool manage to find a decent CAM, luckily there are a number of players of that role waiting for their first team places.

      EVER MENDOZA Month ago

      @Abdul Aziz ​ Alfie haigh, both statement are true, the difference is still in the tactics and the system of playing the game...back with SAF the last couple of year United didn't have the bests creative Midfielders still manage to win many games. Whereas Liverpool still have a decent midfield (btw, none of the liverpool's midfielders where nominated for best players of the year GLOBALLY) and they improve their systems upgrading their fullbacks to a roll that is supouse to be taken by Atacking mids..
