Time is running out for Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who is said to have made three matches to save his job after coming under fire for last week’s embarrassing 5-0 home loss to rivals Liverpool. But it will not be easier in the tenth round away from home against Tottenham Hotspur, who are leading by one point in the Premier League standings.
Manchester United are without a win in four Premier League games (0-3-1) and the Red Devils are looking to avoid losing three consecutive league games for the first time since 2015. Their defensive play has been called into question (one clean sheet in 13 games in all competitions this year). season) and their attack lacked coherent movements, relying instead on a moment of individual brilliance from the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo.
But Ronaldo did not score in four consecutive Premier League games, and the last time he did not score in five consecutive league games was in the 2008-09 season. Likewise, Tottenham star Harry Kane is in disarray in the league with one goal and one assist in eight Premier League matches and those in the same match. With the third-worst scoring record in the league (nine goals scored), it is no surprise that Tottenham have lost four of their nine league games so far.
