Draw 0-0 with AZ Alkmaar, Manchester United is in Poor Performance

By db-admin –  The results of the match with AZ Alkmaar on Matchday 2 of Group L of the Europa League 2019-2020 shows Manchester United is continuing its bad trend.  In the match that took place at Kyocera Stadium on Friday (4/10) early morning local time, Manchester United draw to AZ Alkmaar with a score of 0-0.

 Manchester United appeared in a 4-2-3-1 formation against AZ.  Three attacking midfielders occupied by Angel Gomes, Juan Mata, and Mason Greenwood.  Meanwhile, Daniel James was pushed as the spearhead.

 Apparently, the strategy did not work well.  In fact, when Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard were played, Manchester United were still having trouble creating chances.

 Based on statistics from Opta Joe, Manchester United could not create a single shot on goal in the match.  It was the first time Manchester United had not been able to create opportunities on target in the history of the Europa League (25 matches).

 In addition, the draw also made Manchester United fail to win in the last 10 away games in all competitions.  In detail, Paul Pogba and his friends won four draws and six defeats.

 It was Man United’s worst record since the last time he failed to win in 11 lucky away games in February to September 1989.

 Manchester United indeed appear windy this season.  Some observers assess the results are inseparable from the movement of Man United in the transfer market.

 Man United strengthen the back line by bringing Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka.  However, in the front sector, after releasing Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku, the Red Devils did not get a replacement.

 Next, Manchester United will travel to the headquarters of Newcastle United in the Premier League continued action on Sunday (6/10).  After that, Man United will host the leader of the standings, Liverpool.
