With Bruno Fernandes’ hat-trick and Paul Pogba’s four assists, the title contenders know what the challenge is about from the first matchday.
The leading act of the Premier League matchday one comes from the Old Trafford and the game opposing the local team Manchester United to Leeds United on Saturday August 14th, 2021. Although the game itself is a leading one for its large score (5-1) and the number of goals gathered, but with their hat-trick (Fernandes) and 4 assists (Pogba), the offensive midfielders, Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba send a clear message about MU’s intent for this season.
That means, not only the other Premier League’s contenders, particularly the defending champion Manchester City, know from the first day that the Old Trafford squad want to lead the league until the end, but The Portuguese and Frenchman position themselves as two tough challenges as of individual trophies.
The only week spot in the MU’s current team should be in its attack line. Unless Rashford and Martial assume the responsibility that is free of taking in this area, the old Cavani will not be able to assume the throughout campaigns Premier League, Champions League, and other local cups.
In fact, Manchester United have given themselves the means to achieve their goal with the Jordan Sancho and Raphael Varane bother recruited for more than $ 120 million. Varane, associated with Harry Maguire in defense, will bring experience, vision and security provided being more at ease than during his last season in Madrid when he was several times guilty of missing interceptions leading to goals or scoring own goal.
Just like Varane, no need to present Jordan Sancho, Borussia Dortmund’s playmaker for years who is back home. Fortunately, there will not be conflict of post with Bruno as both can player on either sides and in the axis. With the latter and Pogba in great shape and Sancho integrating the first team between McTominay and Fred one may have trouble keep their post in the midfield.
One can easily affirm that these only two reinforcements are not sufficient considering the season’s length and charge. But remember that we are talking about a team already competitive, vice champion of the 2020-2021’s Premier League and finalist of Europa League. The only week spot in the MU’s current team should be in its attack line. Unless Rashford and Martial assume the responsibility that is free of taking in this area, the old Cavani will not be able to assume the throughout campaigns Premier League, Champions League, and other local cups.
Manchester United is playing Southampton on Sunday August 22nd as part of the second matchday, Southampton that Everton defeated 1-3 Saturday.
