Ole Out? Man Utd Suffer Another Embarrassing Loss

The pressure continues to grow on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as Manchester United suffered their fifth defeat of the Premier League season on Saturday.

Premier League

Result: Watford 4-1 Manchester United

Date: 20 November 2021

Venue: Vicarage Road

Man United made three changes from the derby defeat against Manchester City, as Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Nemanja Matic were all recalled while Mason Greenwood was missing after testing positive Covid-19.

The hosts had a dream start after they were awarded a penalty in the eighth minute but Ismaila Sarr was denied twice by goalkeeper David de Gea after his first spot-kick was retaken.

Watford did not lose heart, as they kept United under pressure and Joshua King eventually broke the deadlock just before the half-time break with a side-footed strike inside the box after a square pass by Emmanuel Dennis.

The Red Devils were struggling to get out of their own half and Sarr finally got on the scoresheet, making it 2-0 for Claudio Ranieri's charges on the stroke of half-time with a low strike across goal.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made a double change at half-time, as Anthony Martial replaced Rashford upfront and Donny van de Beek came on for Scott McTominay and Van de Beek made an immediate impact, as he pulled a goal back five minutes later with a free header from Cristiano Ronaldo's knock back.

The game was opening up after that but United were reduced to ten men 20 minutes before time after Harry Maguire received a second booking and was sent off.

Man United were committing numbers forward in the dying minutes and they were punished in stoppage time, as Joao Pedro put the game to bed for Watford with a strike at the near post after going through on goal.

Dennis rubbed the salt into United's wounds, as he made it 4-1 after bursting his way through on goal thumped home a strike across De Gea.
