I think (Solskjaer) has changed formations and people a lot. For five matches (last year) they did not change the team and this team was tonight without the left back and the goalkeeper. It is 4-2-3-1 and it worked.

(Bruno) Fernandez in Round 10 Feeding Martial, Rashford and (Mason) Greenwood. How cool? They’re one of the best and fastest teams in Europe when they get the chance.

The problem is possession and control with (Paul) Pogba and (Nemanja) Matic. These two need to take control of the game, Fernandez needs to. Once they realize that they are flying.

The Red Devils were late in the first minutes on Thursday evening, as a goalkeeper error from Dean Henderson allowed David McGoldrick to score, but Rashford and Marcial turned the match upside down with each other’s goal before the end of the first half.

Rashford then added again from Pogba’s pass to open a two-goal lead, but Blades responded ahead of second-half injury time straight through McGoldrick, and Solskjaer stuck to a slight lead.

Michael Owen thinks playing players like Pogba, Fernandez and Rashford in the Red Devils squad on a regular basis is a must for Solskjaer, who has manipulated his starting line-up since the start of the season.

Owen told Prime Sport, “ Well they can (win the league). There are a few teams that can. The only way they can get their best players on the field.

If you have Pogba and Fernandez on your team, you cannot win the title if they are in the stands. You have these amazing players that you spent millions on, and the only way to win the title is if your best players play.

If you take out two or three, they’re a good team. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has to keep finding a way to get Pogba, Vernadis and Rashford to play with Guiding, and how unbelievable they have kept together is.

However, the two-goal champion Rashford was quick to nullify any idea of ​​the title charge as he believed the season could change very quickly for each team.
