Same Managers, Similar Players, Same Results. A familiar pattern plays out again. Tottenham took the lead and Tottenham lost the lead and the result was a gap to the top four, now at six points.
It was a roundback of the October race – Manchester City’s horrible Leeds, West Ham beat Leicester, Aston Villa chasing Liverpool – that made the impression this was not the season. normal But Tottenham won 6-1at Old Trafford. The honestly unbelievable idea that Spurs might be able to win this title. How long has it been like now? What remains to be decided appears to be the circumstances of José Mourinho’s departure when it happened and how much of his payoff was.
It is remarkable how the mood of Old Trafford now differs from Mourinho’s final season, largely due to the manager’s personality. Like the poisonous Charlie Brown, Mourinho carries his personal cloud too. At this stage of his reign, his focus seemed to have shifted from getting results to making sure no one was to blame him for the results. On the other hand, the name Solskjær literally means sunshine. No matter what else he said, as a manager, he felt miserable.
It is difficult to avoid the conclusion that he has become a better manager than Mourinho, which is evidenced by the way he restored Paul Pogba after another announcement from his agent that he wanted to leave. Mourinho’s lackluster low block may seem outdated. But at least taking responsibility for his decline is the way he looks today – in a struggle to relate to players. Disappear is a Magician who has been adjusted to every detail and nuance in the early years that he seems to be able to tell the future, and in that position a reckless headmaster has come up to watch out for the lost disciple. Wrong someone he can blame. School failure
Still, Solskjær’s record this season is slightly worse than Mourinho’s 2017-18: 2.03 points per game, Mourinho’s 2.13 games, 1.97 Mourinho’s 1.79 goals per game, 1.10 goals per game. Mourinho’s 0.74 loss could have had enough recovery for Green to feel this is a team that is starting to improve. But before today, the only win against the top six is a victory over Manchester City and many more wins than fewer teams. It has been incredibly hijacked by a strange target. The only difference between this season and the last three is the possible feeling and willingness to continue to spend time with the man in charge.
There is a danger that both sides are so devoted to playing in the break that it might end up like a dead end between United and Chelsea at the start of the season when both sides intend to get their opponents to approach them. Legs and not to risk That the ball may be left at the center at the start of the kick as both sides sit in their own half and watch But it was never the case: If the half-hour opening was difficult, mostly because neither side was good enough to evade the other’s tactical fouling.
But the game was caught in what seemed reluctance in life after 33 minutes as Edinson Cavani seemed to give United the lead, but only referee Chris Kavanagh would decide after consulting the video screen that Scott’s finger brushed. McTominay in Sun Huong Min’s face as he steps away from him in the foul-causing division. Mourinho consoled Solskjær, a reminder of the former virtue that other gifts might have led him to abandon. But with his generosity, Mourinho is still an expert.
Then the most unexpected happened – not just a target for Spurs. But also one of the luminous qualities. Maybe Victor Lindelof helped by messing up his feet. But after Sir Georg Superior swept the ball forward to the interaction between Harry Kane, Lucas Moura and Saunders, who was let the ball roll into it smooth and sharp. But it still hasn’t been fully taken care of by the exhaustion of the rest of the game.
More predictable is what will happen next. For Spurs, leadership was like the Treasure Island characters who passed the black spot, their deaths turned out to be inevitable. The layouts against West Ham, Lask, Crystal Palace, Liverpool, Wolves, Fulham, Arsenal, Dinamo Zagreb and Newcastle followed again.
As Spurs sat deeper, United began playing with agility and imagination. After a good couple of blocks from Hugo Lloris, the equalizer came 12 minutes in the second half, Fred knocked out a rebound after Cavani’s effort saved Cavani’s all-time great. Second, with a header dive from Mason Greenwood’s cross, he then headed into his own position, while Pogba flickered into the corner of Spurs. But the game will not change from fate and Greenwood added in the end of the three.
Hence, Mourinho’s punishment was once again turned, close to the conclusion that everyone suspected was impending.
