"In the last few games, their performance is not good, lack of vitality, lack of urgency, and the level of competition has declined. I am a little worried about them." It turns out that Gary Neville's pre-match worry is not redundant. Lester in combat caused a lot of trouble to the Red Devils by relying on simple anti-countermeasures. Solskjaer's team has gone through a hard fight and won the Champions League tickets and found a way to improve and upgrade the 4231 formation.
Since the rematch, Leicester's state has been down. At the last moment of the Four Wars, the injured fox had run out of ammunition and food, Rogers could not continue to use the four-back system, and could only change to three center-backs to save the field. Compared with the Tottenham game, Rogers adjusted three starters for this campaign. Barnes, Perez and Bennett were replaced by Chowdhury, Ishinacho and Justin.
"We want to go there to control the game, we have to go to Leicester with this idea, and then we have to beat them, we will not change our approach, we want to go there and try to win the game." Solskjaer His pre-match speech revealed the "military aircraft". His strategy is to use the ball and pass to mobilize opponents, use offensive and defensive methods to win on the away field, and make up for his lack of physical fitness.
After the opening, Leicester organized the defense in the backcourt, and Manchester United did not encounter much difficulty in the advancing stage. Manchester United tried to open the gap from the wing, but just like the FA Cup game against Chelsea, the opponents made good use of the width advantage created by the five backs and blocked Manchester United's wing channel.
Recently, Luke Shaw's injury has a great impact on Manchester United's offense and defense. Luke Shaw has certain problems with his pass selection in the frontcourt, but his frequent off-ball insertion can contain the defense and help Rashford gain more space to handle the ball. Rashford's recent downturn is due to physical problems on the one hand, and changes in his partner on the other.
With Luke Shaw missing, Wan Bi Saka's braking effect as a strong side rear drive is mediocre. Wan Bi Saka's defensive ability is undoubtedly, his breakthrough is relatively sure, what is lacking is the stability of the cross.
由于卢克·肖（Luke Shaw）失踪，万碧萨卡（Wan Bi Saka）作为强大的后侧驱动器的制动效果不佳。万比萨卡的防守能力无疑是他的突破，相对来说是肯定的，而缺乏的是十字架的稳定性。
Leicester played more conservatively in the first half. After stealing the ball, they directly used a long pass to contact the two forwards. There were not many attempts to advance without the ball. Matic completed 9 steals and 2 interceptions in this campaign, showing a top-notch midfielder. However, due to the large area that needs to be covered and the slow speed of his own movement, Matic’s defense area has been pierced by Leicester many times, and Maguire and Lindlov’s last defense played a key role.
Pogba and Matic are tall and slow to turn around. They are very risky to catch the ball in front of the central defender. Manchester United should not adopt the 4-2-3-1 position when playing the ball. After several dangerous situations, Manchester United adjusted the position of the backcourt. Matic retreated to the guard line to receive the ball, and attacked with the ball from the front. Rashford came to the midfield to assist the midfielder to make the ball. .
Pogba performed well after his "come back" and Matic just won a long-term contract. This pair of partners with an average height of more than 1.90 meters will still be Manchester United's preferred midfielder combination in the future. The game against Chelsea and Leicester is tantamount to a wake-up call for Solskjaer. Manchester United’s current main lineup is a bit top-heavy, and the movement and coverage of the double defensive midfielder combination is not enough to maintain balance. Mike Tow on the bench Menet and Fred are inferior to Matic in their comprehensive ability, and the three-center/five-back should still be regarded as the blueprint of choice in the strong dialogue.
The first chance Manchester United created in this field came from playing behind. When the cross after the wing penetrated could not create a threat, the visiting team regained a simple attacking routine. Rashford did not participate in the pass after retreating, but sent a few long passes behind him. Pogba's several long passes from the top also created a threat.
After changing sides, Leicester stepped up the high position and Manchester United continued to rely on possession to consume opponents. Chilville, Ricardo Pereira and Madison are absent. Leicester encountered trouble in the advancing stage. After falling into position, the wing attack also lacks changes. When suppressed in the backcourt, they can only use long passes to resolve Pressure, Maguire's frontal defensive ability has room to play.
Frequent ball ownership changes have created confusion, and the ability of frontcourt players to seize opportunities is very important. Before Greenwood connected with Martial to make a penalty kick, Matic and Bruno Fernandez made a coordination error in the backcourt, but Leicester failed to seize the opportunity to attack.
When it was time to strive for three-pointers, Rogers’ first adjustment was just a match-up substitution. Ayoze Perez took the ball in the frontcourt, and the weight of the midfielder still rested on Endidi and Joe. Duri shoulders. Manchester United stepped up the frontcourt at this time, which can be said to have caught the opponent's seven inches.
At the beginning of taking office, Solskjaer showed good management methods and public relations skills, and won the opportunity to become a positive with a wave of winning streaks. This season, Solskjaer was able to alternate between the two formations as needed, and his deployment during the strong dialogue was often bright, gradually dispelling people's doubts about his business capabilities. In the process from fighting the fire to fighting for four, Solskjaer has shown his talent as a famous coach, and the top management of Manchester United has given him full trust. The young coach repaid him with efficient signings and excellent team building.
Manchester United's wasted time in the past few seasons, largely due to inefficient signings. In the first two transfer windows he personally participated in, Solskjaer completed a "5 of 5" home run, one move to make up for the homework of his predecessor. If Manchester United can continue to strengthen in the next summer window, Solskjaer may be able to find the answer to the 4231 system balance problem.
The first phase of the construction of the new Manchester United has been basically completed, but the key factor that determines whether Solskjaer can become the next "Ferguson" is whether he can win enough championships. This requires strength and luck. Before the creation of the Red Empire era in the Premier League, Ferguson had led Manchester United to a number of cup championships, and Solskjaer could write history in a similar way.
