I don’t believe I am saying this but United are in a goal scoring crisis ever since Ronaldo arrived at the club. Why? They are not creating enough clear cut opportunities. Bruno Fernandes was the chief creater in chief last season, he has gone off the boil this season. In this match in particular, he didn’t play particularly well in terms of completed passes even failing to control the ball on occasion which was not like him at all. He was not the only one guilty of this though. Pogba who started the season like a house on fire with 7 assists in 3 matches hardly gave any service to Ronaldo.

So is Ronaldo the problem? Not really. Look the coach is allowed to try something different when the front 2 aren’t linking up well, if it means subbing CR7 so be it.Credit were it is due to Villa, they came with a plan to close down United high up the pitch not allowing the midfield players to dictate play. They got their just rewards with the Hause goal. The controversy of De Gea being obstructed by a player in an offside position is unfounded in my opinion. Mason Greenwood was very selfish in his play, he got into decent positions were a pass was the better option he chose to go for glory. Who should take penalty kicks is just a way for United fans to take their minds off the real issues behind their side’s poor performances in the last 3 games. No doubt zero goals in two home games is unManchester United like. They need to start scoring fast and against Villarreal on Wednesday I really fear for them, unless Ole is brave enough to ring the changes.
