Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger said Manchester United’s defense was poor. And their attack was too rushed against Manchester City last night
. The Reds were thrash 6-3 by City in the Premier League Manchester derby on Saturday night,
with Erling Haaland and Phil Foden scoring three goals each in the game. As United came in with three consolation goals from Anthony and Anthony Martial,
Wenger looked at United defending poorly in that game. It also speeds up the offensive game until it loses the ball many times.
Hat-tricks from Phil Foden and Erling Haaland saw the defending champions stay within a point of early leaders Arsenal at the top of the Premier League table.
Three second-half goals gave the scoreline a bit of gloss for Man Utd but they were never in the match with Erik ten Hag’s men 4-0 down at the interval.
“What was unbelievable for me in the first half was that Manchester United defended so badly around the edge,” he told UFABET.
“From the first minute. (Diogo) Dalot was shown a yellow card and (Jadon) Sancho and Anthony didn’t come in to help. They were attack from the edge and had problems throughout the first half.
” I feel like they are too attached to the game plan. They rushed the game too much and lost the ball many times. And they still don’t have enough possession of the ball. They don’t play for possession. They just want to attack with a counter-attack.”
