Fewer touches than Onana: 3/10 star just had one of his worst games in a Man Utd shirt

Posted by

To put it bluntly, Manchester United’s season has been a complete bust, and Sir Jim Ratcliffe has a big task ahead of him to turn the team around.

The Red Devils’ most recent 2-2 draw with Bournemouth on the road brought to light the team’s evident problems, as they gave up more than 20 shots for the 14th time this year.

Erik-ten-Hag Erik ten Hag’s tenure as United’s manager is certain to end this summer as the supporters gradually move past their frustration.

However, this time the team’s downfall wasn’t down to one of the typical culprits; instead, a certain star delivered his worst performance while wearing a United shirt to date, outperforming Marcus Rashford, who regrettably suffered once more.

The way Marcus Rashford performed against Bournemouth Although Rashford is undoubtedly a world-class player on his best days, his inconsistency in his play has obviously affected his confidence, creating a vicious cycle.

Unfortunately, the tenth player’s performance yesterday was again another lacklustre outing as he failed to add to his already paltry seven league goals.Manchester United’s Rasmus Hojlund Marcus Rasford Opinion Rashford participated in the entire match, although he mostly served as a spectator with no offensive influence, making only one shot on goal and completing no dribbles.

Though he wasn’t the worst player on the pitch, his wasteful style of play infuriated the United supporters. He lost the ball seven times, had a 79% pass accuracy rate, and lost a significant eight of nine duels.Marcus, Rafael, Bruno, and Fernandes The way Alejandro Garnacho performed versus Bournemouth This past weekend marked Alejandro Garnacho’s thirty-first consecutive start for Manchester United, demonstrating exactly how good he has been thus far this season. In 24 starts this season, the Argentine has contributed three assists and seven Premier League goals—an amazing return for a young player with so little experience.Man-Utd-Dalot-Champions-League Garnacho The burden placed on him at just 19 years old to not only produce but lead the assault is absurd, and his performance on Saturday on the South Coast was symptomatic of burnout. The Manchester Evening News gave the number 17’s performance against the Cherries a 3/10 rating, which was the lowest of the team’s ratings. against Bournemouth, Garnacho Statistics Garnacho xG/xA 0.06 Snapshots 1. Accuracy pass 80 percent Lost of possession 8 Effective dribbles 0/2 Duels prevailed. 1/3 Through Sofascore Unfortunately, the ratings are supported by the statistics, as Garnacho appeared to be off pace the entire time even if he contributed to Bruno Fernandes’ equaliser. The winger had less touches (30) than custodian Andre Onana (50) in the first half, making only 16 passes with an accuracy of 80%. As it turned out, he was apathetic on all fronts; he conceded eight points in possession and lost two of the three matches.Garnacho-Christie- Ryan The academy graduate’s xG/A (expected goals and assists) of 0.06 and 0% dribble success rate indicate that he was a blunt attacker who found it difficult to outplay the Cherries full-back. There is reason to believe that this was one of his poorest performances to date wearing a United jersey, given his seasonal xG/A of 0.49 and his 35% take-on success rate. The statistics, however, fail to show that he was involved in both of Bournemouth’s goals. For the first, he was dispossessed after taking a hard touch in the absence of pressure, and for the second, he failed to pick up Justin Kluivert. After a lacklustre first half, Ten Hag replaced Garnacho at the interval, substituting Amad Diallo, who did exhibit a little bit more intensity. All in all, Man United played again another horrible game—they just can’t seem to get the simple things right. Garnacho had a terrible evening—possibly his worst performance of the year. In fact, he has never been pulled off so early in the season. It is not encouraging for the next time around.
