Manchester United star appears to blame Ole Gunnar Solskjaer tactics for Liverpool defeat

Manchester United left-back and England international Luke Shaw has admitted that Liverpool’s result is on the cards ahead of the game.

Shaw told Malaysian television broadcaster Stadium Astro via The Athletic that United were too easy to play and asked if he and the rest of the team were doing the right thing in preparing for their match.


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s tactics were unsuccessful which made it too easy for Man United to defend and made Liverpool’s result somewhat inevitable. The 26-year-old also said the players should have a look but what is striking is that he feels they haven’t been playing well in a while, which could indicate a problem with the coach’s preparations. he said, “I think we should look at ourselves in the mirror first and foremost.

Did we do everything right and did we prepare well for the game? “Of course we have the tactics and the way the manager wants us to play, but I think sometimes we are too easy to play.”


Shaw was one of the main causes of United’s poor performance yesterday as he and Harry Maguire were constantly directed. and hit on Liverpool’s right. United’s form has been dubbed by some as the worst in United Premier League history and, frankly, it would be hard to find a worse form than lost against Liverpool on Sunday.

Shaw later added, “I think we can probably say this result is coming.” “We felt that in the dressing room and today we have to think about it and move on because it hurts.”

Manchester United now have many unwanted defensive records to their name, including the fewest fights in the Premier League, the most errors leading to hits, the 15 most expected goals conceded and the most 14 shots on target. It all ended with United having the 16th worst defensive record in the Premier League this season.

If United don’t improve soon, all their aspirations for the season will be lost before they can recover. And time is running out this season as Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool are likely to continue to score goals next week while United face a tough game.
