Manchester United Show Doubts Despite Beating Stoke City
Manchester United hasn’t been able to live up to the team’s expectations this season, and they showed it once again in the match against Stoke City.
Despite the fact that the Red Devils were able to come out on top thanks to a late comeback that included two goals in the final 15 minutes, there are several things that need to be analyzed due to the way the match was played.
Just like last season under Sir Alex Ferguson‘s management, Manchester United are still suffering issues defensively. They have conceded early goals in lots of matches and haven’t been able to show any kind of defensive security, especially at home where they should be dominant.
Another thing of concern in David Moyes’ coaching staff is that the team is having lots of problems finding the back of the net. Despite scoring three times, they wasted several chances to score as the attackers were largely inaccurate. Wayne Rooney was at his best today and he has been the most decisive player of the team during this season, but it remains to be seen how Manchester United will answer if they don’t have their no. 1 in the starting XI.
Manchester United fans will be happy as the team was able to win and get the much-needed three points to improve their position in the standings, but there are several areas that the team needs to improve before they can consider themselves contenders.
