Pep got it all wrong. I felt like I was watching Wenger all over again with how stubbornly he stuck to his way, ignoring all threat of the opposition. United sliced through City like butter in that 1st half. It's like they were playing Norwich. It's could've been 0-4 to the reds by HT. They dropped off in the 2nd half, but by that point the job was already done.

If Pep doesn't win the Champions League this season he could be out the door next. I see similar parallels to Ole. He's like his total opposite in a way. Whereas he was given a ready-made structure to walk into and build himself at Barca, Ole got handed the impossible task of keeping Cardiff up. Ole had to build himself back up at Molde while Pep gets the luxury of strolling into another ready-made structure and an open chequebook to buy whoever he wants at Bayern. Both have one distinct way of playing.

Pep, possession-based, high-intensity football prioritizing the attack.

Ole, counterattacking-based, high-intensity Diego Simeone-esque football prioritizing the defence.

When their Plan-As don't work their teams struggle big time. Pep gets away with it a lot more often than City because he was spoon-fed quality to work with by a director of football while Ole doesn't even get a midfield to work with. He's having to coach the one he's already got to be better which had lost a key member in Herrera.

I'd replace Pep at the end of the season if he doesn't win the UCL this season or at least turn up the heat under him letting him know he's under intense scrutiny to produce the goods, the UCL. Sure, winning the league by a 100 points is all well and good, as is winning the league again, BUT, let's not kid ourselves, that's not what the City board want. They want the Champions League. That's what they hired Pep for to begin with, but he isn't getting anymore UCLs if he can't develop a Plan B when his Plan A fails.
Somebody Give this man a “Sky Sports” contract! Couldn’t have done better by anyone. Cheers!

Uniteds counters were amazing. I loved how Scotty and Fred effectively closed down the half spaces. Ole showed his flexibility, against Spurs they had similar equal possession, against City they barely had possession. These 2 victories will buy him a lot of time.

The match ended 1–2, MU won. Rashford and Martial scored on our behalf :-)
Ole prepared a special strategy for this match. I am amazed by this strategy but I have to admit it was a bit risky, any minor mistake on its execution could have costed us the match, Lindelof even made 1 mistake and they nearly scored.
Ole’s strategy may seem risky but it was well planned and well executed, MU tried to draw MC players as forward as possible and then strike back with counter-attacks, MU always tried to play short passes out of defence even though Manchester City (or Guardiola’s teams) are known to practice too much pressing in front of the opponent’s goal, then for counter-attachs MU relied on energy and speed of the young players. It worked, we could have scored much more than we actually did.
Ole deployed 4–2–4 structure on defence, 4 defenders shielded by Fred and McTominay in front of them, these 2 shield players allowed a huge flexibility and dynamism to the defenders. Whenever a defender went for pressing or closing down, Fred or McTominay would take their place so that there will be no gap left behind. It worked very well as Manchester City barely found chances for their through balls. Sometimes when MC was on attack Luke Shaw went as high as the center of the pitch, during that time Fred covered Luke’s zone. Rashford-Martial-Lingard-James set up a front line when the team had to defend, behind them was Fred and McTominay. It worked very well.
Bissaka and Daniel James fought very hard in this match, their enthusiasm and passion made defending easier than it could have been.
To summarise, MU was amazing and Ole’s tactics were again amazing.

Really interesting to see how Oles tactics fair against sides that don't attack. Their fullbacks are not adapted for the modern game. As for the analysis, brilliant always so interesting!

I thought when attacking man utd were in 4-2-4. They also liked to build up from the back when in possession. I guess solskjaer might have found a way to tweak his 4231 formation. Maybe that's why there's more rumors for an attacker than a midfielder in january.

Thank you realy good analys.
The most important aspect why Ole won this match was how he kept Silva and De Bruyne out of the game. Fred and Mc did a fantastic job, their eyes were always on them.
Didn't you say like a week ago that United should sack ole?

All pep had to do is play Cancelo.
this is the exact struggle United has been having throughout this season..they are playing simple and going to counter attacks but that only works against teams that like to dominate the game..wich are the top teams, that's why Ole do well agints big teams.. but when it comes to more defensively teams those who dont propose to attack, United has trouble breaking the defense couse Ole don't know how to build up, he always rely on attacking the defense when they are out of shape(ususally in a counter attack lol) same style of play had Liverpool last season where mane and Salah had crusial parts couter attackig.. this year liverpool fixed that part, they still letal couter attacikg but now they also like to build up from bihind and dominate the whole game.

Neem Noa
Neem Noa:
People say Ole can only play counter-attacking football and park the bus. But the fact is there is an evolution for every team. Attacking space is way easier than attacking tightly-knit defences sitting deep. There is a reason most mid-table teams adopt this style, especially against better opposition.

United's squad is very thin at the moment, and very young. Pushing the defence high-up, and playing for possession, trying to dominate teams, that is only possible at the highest level with well drilled, elite players. United is not there yet. You can try and play this style with an inexperienced, inferior squad: most smaller teams that try it struggle at the bottom of the table. In the very competitive Premier League, a certain pragmatism is needed until you can build a world-class squad that is ready to dominate.

So all in all, I don't think Solskjaer can't play other types of football. I think he is forced into this style by what is available to him, and by the demands of the fanbase and the owners. People keep saying they'd be happy with a loss if the team played nice football. I think this is a delusion. Most fans, and the owners as well would be fuming if we finished outside the top 6 (and most people want top 4). This is a results business and Solskjaer's hands are tied in this sense.

Nothing spesial if you win, and using formation defensive.
I think other clubs in the premier league should def try to use this against city. It is the best strategy I have seen used against City. It really nullified their threat and frustrated them. Even the City supporters resorted to throwing bottles and lighters at Fred out of anger.

Anyone know why Pep didnt play Stones and Otamendi at CB and Fernadinho at his regular position?
mohd zahidfullah abd razak
mohd zahidfullah abd razak:
Mourinho will play to draw in this kind of match
My view:

1. Pep should have put both Sterling & Benardo Silva narrow:
i. To occupy both the FB & force MU to defend narrow, open up the space at the wing to be exploited by Walker & Angelino. Thus, forcing Rashford & James to be at deeper starting position, eliminating chance for both of counter attack.
ii. To create confusion between AWB-Lindelof and Shaw-Maguire on who to cover who (Benardo-Sterling). If MU choose to assign Fred-McTominay to cover Benardo-Sterling, then Silva & KDB would have the freedom to dictate the play whether in half spaces or on the wings.

2. Play with flat backfour (with Otamendi) and Fernandinho at DMF:
i. Neutralising Rashford, James and Lingard (5 v 4).
ii. Let the attacking 5 (Sterling-Silva-KDB-Benardo-Jesus) take on MU back 6 (AWB-Lindelof-Maguire-Shaw + McTominay-Fred)

3. Otamendi should start:
i. Better aggresion on Martial (Martial weaker in physical duel & often easily frustrated by aggresive treatment by CB)
ii. To allow Fernandinho to play mainly at DMF vs Lingard. Fernandinho has better mobility than Rodri.
Marv Mark
Marv Mark:
they were so many individual battles
Luke Shaw vs Bernardo Silva
Fred vs Kevin De Bruyne
Scott McTominay vs David Silva
Aaron Wan-Bissaka (MOTM Citeth tried everything to get passed him unbelievable defensive performance) vs Raheem Sterling
Jesse Lingard vs Rodri
Marcus Rashford (should have a hat-trick) vs Kyle Walker
Dan James vs Angelino
Harry Maguire+Victor Lindelof vs Gabriel Jesus
Anthony Martial vs John Stones+Fernandinho
then there's David De Gea briliant save that shot from Mahrez vs Ederson failing to saved Martial's shot
should have 3-4 nil by half time
Colin Shaw
Colin Shaw:
Even now we will know that Manchester city are not going to be the premiership champions this season Yet everyone goes for Liverpool but you still have got Leicester that are in 2nd place at this moment good points and a good goal difference so any team can still win. 1 LIVERPOOL. 2. LEICESTER. These two teams are really fighting to be the 2019/2020 premiership League champions this season so let's get the drinks in and be ready
city got robbed

Omary Ibrahim:
It will be better for Ole to sign a right left footed winger and To bring Daniel James back on his left wing (he will provide more assists and goals) ..This will increase efficiency during attacking the opponent team and to welcome P. Pogba into role number 10 (lingard should be out). 4-2-4 Formation: Luke Shaw,Lindolof,Maguire, Bissaka..Fred and Mctominay.. Pogba,James Martial and Rashford..GK: DG after signing a right left footed winger formation will change into 3-5-2. If yes draw your views.

Ali Hashmi:
MC lost cause of VAR, and Guardiola would've always won cause of lucky ref calls. Without VAR, MC would've had two more penalty kicks and won the game. Now MC and Guardiola need new tactics up their sleeve
Clearly he has the counter attack down
But against lower clubs with the ball he has no idea what to do
Hanafi Hanafi
Hanafi Hanafi:
Lindelof no good
Donald LeRoi
Donald LeRoi:
Had Ole brought in a third centre back at around the 70th minute, city would never have had a goal. A thirs centre back would have created a difficult situation for city. Wan-Bissaka was being helped by Mctomminay in the second half to contain Sterling since he was the main channel, De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva created an overload for Luke Shaw who was being helped by Fred. Man United should be grateful Walker did not push up a lot since both Fred and Shaw would have been overwhelmed. With a the centreback, Maguire would have become the sweeper in the defence, simply clearing balls. Lindelolf would have been able to help out Wan-Bissaka and I case Tuanzebe would have helped out Shaw. This would have freed McTomminay and Fred to focus on DeBruyne and Silva. This would have stifled City's creativity and reduced thier chances of getting a goal.

The only thing that was tactical is Manchester United putting everyone on the field in the box. Nothing at all amazing about that. And then they get 2 lucky opportunities
