Manchester United currently ranks tenth at the Premier League table. This weekend, we saw the club’s defeat from New Castle. So far, United have suffered three defeats after seven Premier League matches. They’re also out of the Carabao Cup. How the last season’s Premier League runners-up plan on going from here?
Last week, we analysed betting sites favourites’ performance during the previous and this season. Our main focus was the clubs that are performing better this season. For this reason, we left Manchester United out. At the time being, the club recorded three wins, three losses, and a draw. On the other hand, during the same period last year, Manchester United had six wins and a draw. These figures show that Jose Mourinho’s squad is not performing nearly as well as they did during the previous season.
Moreover, the feud between Mourinho and France’s midfielder, Paul Pogba could not but have a negative impact on the club. The fact that the Manchester United boss has a reputation of leaving after three seasons doesn’t help the situation either. On that note, this is the 55-year-old’s third season at Old Trafford. Mourinho’s winning percentage with Manchester United is significantly lower this season as well.
In one of the most recent interviews, Mourinho said, “What I can do to improve things I do, and I will improve the things that depend on me and my work.”
The question is whether Manchester United boss will have an opportunity to improve anything. The club’s former player, Paul Parker, has already expressed concerns that Mourinho is not the right fit for Manchester United. Now, Parker urges the club to part ways with the Portuguese football manager. The former United centre-back believes the current situation will only get worse.
Regardless of how the situation unfolds, we hope that 13-time PL champions will soon get back to their winning ways.
