Bruno Fernandes could be much better if he was at striker

Bruno Fernandes could be much better if he was at striker

The Portuguese midfielder revealed that he was placed in center-back during the start of his career and played impressively. He player moved to Man Utd from Sporting CP during the winter transfer. It didn’t take him long to make an impact in coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad at Old Trafford.

After the match MU won Everton 3-1 in round 8 of the FA Cup, Bruno Fernandes said he could finish to complete the hat-trick. But he chose to pass the ball to Edinson Cavani.

He had 18 goals and 13 assists after 33 matches for Man Utd so far. In the Premier League this season, Fernandes has never been removed from the starting lineup.

He scored 5 goals and had 3 assists after 7 matches. However, coach Solskjaer still has a headache with finding a way to combine him with Paul Pogba and rookie Donny van de Beek in midfield.

“I’m really good. There’s a coach who once said to me: ‘If you want to be a good player, kick it. midfielder If you want to be top player, you have to play at center-back, ” Bruno Fernandes told UTD Podcast.

He added: “I’m not sure. At that time, I didn’t like playing in that position. Everyone says I’m a good defender. They say I’m smart and cover both sides well.”

Some sources said that Greenwood is not aware of the things he needs to sacrifice to become a good player. Young stars MU more and more fall into the game, after becoming famous.

Before that, Greenwood had been involved in a scandal that brought strangers into the hotel where the British were stationed. The 19-year-old striker with Phil Foden was immediately dropped by coach Gareth Southgate.

While Foden still maintained his form in the Man City shirt and was called back to the team, Greenwood was on a decline. At the last meeting for the UEFA Nations League, the MU player was not named.

It is difficult for goalkeeper MU to win the main position in England

It is difficult for goalkeeper MU to win the main position in England

Dean Henderson is not too inferior to Nick Pope as well as Jordan Pickford in the basic stats. However, the ability to play feet and experience in international competitions is a minus point for goalkeeper MU.

The 23-year-old goalkeeper is ready to compete for the main starting spot at Man Utd after two successful seasons in Sheffield.

“My goal is to play next season. I don’t want to be on the bench after what I did last season. The new season is about to begin, and I am gaining momentum. It won’t be okay if I sit for one. place and not play. I think it does not help either side, both me and Man Utd, “Goal quoted Dean Henderson.

The young England goalkeeper added: “David de Gea is clearly the team’s excellent and important goalkeeper for many years. He’s phenomenal. Having a career like De Gea is what I aspire to. I will be back on the first day of the new season to take my place in the starting lineup.

Henderson signed a five-year contract with the Old Trafford team. The British goalkeeper will receive a salary of £ 120,000 a week, 10 times the old income. This makes him one of the highest-paid goalkeepers in the world.

In the 2019/20 season, Henderson played 40 matches in all competitions for Sheffield. He has 13 clean sheets in the Premier League, three less than Ederson Moreas, owner of the Golden Gloves title.

The 1997-born goalkeeper said: “You can get a lot from practice. Obviously, it is a good thing to learn from De Gea, other goalkeepers or goalkeepers coach. But I think it’s nothing. comparable to playing time on the field “.

“I left Man Utd five years ago, starting at Stockport, Grimsby, Shrewsbury and then Sheffield. It shows how much I have learned by myself, experienced in games because of the situations. you cannot experience in practice. I have no illusion that I will fall back if I sit on the bench. But, I need time to play, “he said.

Man United no hope to win the championship after losing to Arsenal

Man United no hope to win the championship after losing to Arsenal

Failure to Arsenal continues to point out the limitations in coach Ole Solskjaer’s holding ability at Man United. At the last time Man United started the season struggling, they ranked 18th overall.

Man United also engulfed Leipzig with a score of 5-0 in the Champions League. At the end of the 7th round of the Premier League, they lost 9 points to the top team Liverpool after 7 rounds.

Everything with Man United is like a joke. How the team just beat Leipzig. The club reached the semifinals of the Champions League in the 2019/20 season, and was poor against Arsenal. Even in the 0-0 draw against Chelsea in the 6th round of the Premier League, Solskjaer’s army also played faintly.

The answer lies in Man United’s gameplay too monotonous and lack of creativity. Sometimes, Man United suddenly pushed up the intensity of the match right after the break between the two halves.

Under Solskjaer, Man United often achieved impressive results under such a scenario. Leipzig became one of the strongest teams to experience this. However, Arsenal still cannot boldly kick the top team. They still have great respect for the Manchester City representative.

Watching Partey take control of the midfield of the match, Elneny worked tirelessly until the half time. When Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood worked together to create a threatening situation to intimidate Arsenal’s goal in the first half.

That made coach Solskjaer more excited, so that the Norwegian military had a reason to believe in counter-attacking tactics. However, a team like Man United needs more solutions in the match.

After the half-time break, Man United actually had changes. After being overwhelmed by Arsenal in the first half, coach Solskjaer abandoned the diamond-shaped 4-1-2-1-2 scheme and replaced it with 4-2-3-1.

Midfielder Paul Pogba was required to work heavily on the left flank to reduce the range of the Arsenal full-back. This adjustment helps homeowners regain balance of the match.

Along with the quality of the squad and the two-team playstyle, fans believe the goal will come, and the team that makes a mistake must pay the price. Pogba is undoubtedly the most criticized.

According to Opta, Pogba caused Man Utd to suffer 3 penalties in the Premier League under Solskjaer coach. Whereas neither player has committed a foul resulting in more than one 11 m at the same time.

Man United is lucky when there is still Rashford

Man United is lucky when there is still Rashford

Rashford again became the god of PSG. For the second time in a row, the British have scored and sorrowed the top French club in Paris. Man United also surpassed the host with a score of 2-1. More than a year ago, the penalty was decided by Rashford to see PSG off the FA Cup.

ESPN News described Rashford’s strike as a classic. It combines a variety of factors including strength, assertiveness and a bit of boldness. Receiving the ball from Paul Pogba, Rashford pushed a beat before launching an unstoppable shot.

PSG goalkeeper Keylor Navas was unable to touch the ball at full speed. In the distance, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe bowed in disappointment. The stage at the Parc des Princes was robbed by the striker who did not carry a hundred million dollars.

Commenting on BT Sport, the legendary Rio Ferdinand of Man United praised Rashford. Over time, he became obsessed with scoring. And Rashford also scored and assisted beautifully. This direction will be even more excellent if we improve something.

ESPN believes that Rashford is qualified to join the ranks of the heirs of Ronaldo and Messi, to become a world-class football star. The theory is simple and can be said by everyone.

The problem is how Rashford will do it. The English striker’s goals will solve it all. Recently, Rashford has played in many positions from the attacker, kicking the left wing to the center. Experts believe this is not the right way to develop a promising player.

Rashford has never been a bad striker. However, the spearhead of the British lacks the stability to reach world class. Statistics become a measure of the excellence of a striker.

In this respect, Rashford completely failed to meet expectations. This led to coach Ole Solskjaer recruiting striker Edinson Cavani in the summer transfer window of 2020.

Juergen Klopp and the adventures of Liverpool in football

Coach Juergen Klopp and his teachers may face many difficulties because under the guidance of Marcelo Bielsa. The defending Championship champion always shows a nasty game.

In addition, Liverpool’s pre-season form was not high. They won against weak rivals Stuttgart and Blackpool, drew RB Salzburg and lost to Arsenal in the Community Shield match. When facing Mikel Arteta’s army, Liverpool played ineffective and lacked cohesion.

However, in the transfer market, Liverpool is not yet active. Up to this point, they brought back left-back Tsimikas for nearly 12 million pounds as a backup plan for Andy Robertson.

However, the Stamford Bridge team is not the player’s number one priority destination.

Werner longed to go to Liverpool, where fellow countryman Klopp was. That made the young striker believe he could integrate faster in the new environment. He also has a gameplay that is rated in accordance with what the German strategist built. However, the transfer fee is the obstacle.

In addition, coach Klopp does not want to recruit a star, because this can disrupt the atmosphere of the changing room which is very stable. In Liverpool’s current squad, apart from goalkeeper Alisson Becker and midfielder Virgil Van Dijk. No player is recruited for over £ 50 million.

However, numbers do say that the Egyptian striker is a perfect fit for Liverpool. Salah has contributed greatly to the great successes Liverpool have won in recent times. Including the Premier League title after 30 years of waiting.

In the past, Klopp helped Dortmund end Bayern Munich’s dominance in the Bundesliga. He made Robert Lewandowski, Marco Reus or Mario Goetze the stars.

In Liverpool, the German strategist also achieved the same success. Obviously, Klopp is good at creating stars and knows how to hold them together.

Coach Klopp’s clear philosophy makes the transfer target suitable for Liverpool are often young players. Instead the stars have been identified in certain locations. The German strategist likes versatile players. With a desire to prove, young players are always ready to take on every position that the coach requires.

How Arsenal wins the FA Cup affects the qualification of the Europa League

How Arsenal wins the FA Cup affects the qualification of the Europa League

Arsenal’s FA Cup championship has ruined all the plans of both Wolves and Tottenham. The FA Cup final of the 2019/20 season at Wembley Stadium ended with a sweet victory for Arsenal.

Despite Chelsea opening the score soon 5 minutes by Christian Pulisic. He was successfully upstream thanks to a double from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Thus, Arsenal will be the team facing Liverpool in the English Super Cup match in 2020/21. Not to stop here, Mikel Arteta had a season to throw away but the FA Cup championship has become their lifeline.

Specifically, Arsenal officially won the Europa League right from the group stage next season, although they ended the Premier League in eighth place. Arsenal’s defeat of Chelsea brought a huge disadvantage to the two teams. above them are Wolves and Tottenham.

Accordingly, instead of qualifying for the group stage, Tottenham will launch the Europa League campaign 2020/21 from the preliminary round. Thus, coach Jose Mourinho will have to have calculations to help Tottenham have the best preparation for next season.

With Wolves, they can only join the European Cup next season by winning the Europa League. At that time, they will have a place in the UEFA Champions League group stage. If this happens, English football will have 5 teams in the UEFA Champions League.

However, it is a very difficult task when many big men like Man United or Inter Milan are determined to win the Europa League this season. The future of Dani Ceballos turned uncertain after the end of the 2019/2020 season.

The Evening Standard newspaper, reported, Arsenal expressed its intention to borrow the Spanish star for another year from Real Madrid. Ceballos made a strong impression when combined with Granit Xhaka in the Gunners midfield under Mikel Arteta dynasty.

Meanwhile, Los Blancos has an excess of midfield staff and is likely to agree for Ceballos to continue with Arsenal.

Mata’s goal was a reminder to coach Solskjaer

Mata’s goal was a reminder to coach Solskjaer

The better he played, the Spanish midfielder was treated unfairly at Man United. Juan Mata shone in the League Cup when he contributed a goal and assists in a 3-0 win over Brighton in the fourth round.

The ability to choose when to make the final decision has always been one of Mata’s strengths. That quality was promoted by the 32-year-old midfielder in a situation to increase the score to 2-0.

Donny van de Beek’s assists for Mata are very perfect, but in front of the Spanish star there are still 3 Brighton players to stop. However, the former Chelsea star still calmly handles the ball.

He performed the act of deceiving midfielder Lewis Dunk, before finishing it neatly. The shot of the former Chelsea star is not strong, but there is a danger that goalkeeper Jason Steele can not stop.

From Mata’s handling of the ball to finishing, it is an art and is often seen only in pitch artists who possess skillful personal techniques. Before scoring, the 32-year-old midfielder also made his mark at the opening score. He brought Man United a penalty at the end of the first half.

At 32, Mata can still bring great things to Man United. The Spanish midfielder proved himself not out of date, and his performance as a reminder to coach Solskjaer.

The Norwegian teacher needs to trust the Spanish midfielder more, because Mata’s playing quality has never been lost. He is still the creative provider on the front line.

Before Brighton, Mata moved around the field. In the 45 passes he made, his accuracy rate was 91 percent. More importantly, the former Chelsea star brought goals and assists for his teammates to score.

With the Spanish midfielder on the field, Man United’s football becomes elegant and soft. It is completely different from when Bruno Fernandes played in midfield. Recently, Man United was determined to bring Jadon Sancho back to Old Trafford.

Ansu Fati helped Barca from humiliating in the Suarez case

Ansu Fati helped Barca from humiliating in the Suarez case

Barca was engulfed in crisis and chaos. No one understands what the club’s leaders think when leaving Luis Suarez to Atletico at a “cheap” price.

The revolution in Barca is essential. The problem is that the representative of Catalonia lets the striker score the third most in the history of the club to rival Atletico.

On the day of the new team debut, Suarez shone with goals. Cules’ heart tightened. They wonder what will happen when the Uruguayan striker faces his old team?

However, Barca is lucky to have Fati, a promising striker and can ease the nostalgia of Suarez. In Barca’s 4-0 win over Villarreal in the third round of La Liga, the teenage striker turned Camp Nou into a private show with a double.

The performance of the 17-year-old striker made everyone conquer. In the context that Barca still does not have Memphis Depay and Lautaro Martinez, they can rely on the Spanish goalscorer.

Fati is young, so agile and aggressive. With the number 22 on the attack, the way to the ball and change the state of Barca takes place at speed. This is what Suarez at the age of 33 lost.

The Spanish striker also possesses a sharp finishing ability. Seeing how Fati finished defeating goalkeeper Asenjo, one saw great maturity in this goalscorer.

Goal’s writer Rik Sharma believes Fati is showing more confidence after each match. He saw in the teenage striker the bravery and temperament without fear.

In the two goals Fati scored, all were determined. In football, it is only when a player is prolific and has a high degree of confidence that he can do that.

If Suarez still kicks for Barca, Fati’s position is likely to be the bench. When coach Ronald Koeman trusted the main kick, the teenage striker did not disappoint his teacher.

The Spanish media praised Fati very much for the past year. For young players, that can turn into poison. Barca’s No.22 fortunately avoided that.

Coach Koeman believed but did not indulge Fati. During the momentum period for the 2020/21 season, the Dutch military leader criticized the pupil for not doing his best.

FA Cup Final – For Arsenal it is not simply a championship

FA Cup Final – For Arsenal it is not simply a championship

From a team that is rich in tradition and regularly in the Champions League. Now Europe‘s most prestigious playground has no room for Arsenal. The last time people saw the red and white striped team played was more than 3 years ago, in a shameful 1-5 defeat against Bayern Munich at home.

There was so much turmoil going on at Emirates during a season where the hot seat changed hands three times. Less than 12 hours after the weak defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League group stage, Unai Emery was fired.

The Spaniard was expected by the Gooners to do better. Especially after the positive signals that this 48-year-old man brought in his first year working in England.

On the side of the team, they also accepted to destroy the safe. That’s when spending more than 100 million pounds to bring in blockbusters like Nicolas Pepe, Kieran Tierney or Dani Ceballos. But in the end the investment is not commensurate with the performance on the pitch.

Besides the decline in performance, Emery also made the atmosphere in Emirates stuffy. Starting from handing over the captain’s armband to Granit Xhaka, who makes mistakes at crucial moments.

After that, Xhaka himself created the scandal of swearing at home fans, when he was substituted in the Crystal Palace 2-2 draw at the end of October. On the day of Emery’s departure, he left Arsenal a jumble of no answers. The truth is Arsenal are changing in a positive direction under Mikel Arteta.

Mikel Arteta is very focused on training sessions. He is always standing directly to observe and give direct suggestions to the players. That is the difference from the time of Emery. Besides, Arteta also strongly eliminates players who lack determination and enthusiasm. Typical must include the case of Mesut Ozil and Matteo Guendouzi.
