Manchester United looking to get back on track after a turbulent start

Manchester United looking to get back on track after a turbulent start

Three wins in seven games are not the kind of numbers fans and pundits have come to expect from Manchester United, but the team has been in rebuild mode for years and maybe ready to show off the progress.

The Red Devils finished last season strongly, muscling their way to a third-place finish and putting everyone on notice for the 2020/21 season. It has, however, not been all that glittered, as the team has struggled to find any consistency in the opening weeks of the Premier League season. A 3-1 loss to Crystal Palace, heavy 6-goal drumming at the hands of former coach Mourinho's Spurs, and a bitter 1-0 loss to rivals Arsenal have dented what has otherwise been a decent showing from Ole Gunnar Solksjaer's side. For some of us who add a little action to our football weekends, has made the disappointments lighter with decent odds.

As focus moves from international games to the leagues again, Ole's team will be taking on West Brom in Old Trafford, where they are still to register a win this season. Winless in all four home games this season, United have conceded more goals (10) than any other at home, and West Brom will be feeling confident coming in with three wins in their last five games at Old Trafford. United has evolved into a reactionary team, only opening the scores once this season, only to lose the game 6-1 to Tottenham, yet they have more comeback points than any other team in the league. It is inconsistencies and contradictions like these that have blown hot and cold over the Red Devils' season. Led by an impressive Bruno Fernandes who tops the team's goals and assists charts, United have failed to find more or any other kind of consistency apart from their Portuguese talisman. Marcus Rashford and Harry Maguire have been lieutenants to the high-flying Fernandes, but much more is needed for the team to unlock and realise the potential that is potent in the team.

A subpar season for highly anticipated names like Anthony Martial, Paul Pogba, Donny Van der Beek, and Edinson Cavani, has been attributed to many things ranging from injuries to coach, but the squad looks to be rounding a corner with almost the whole team fit coming off the international break. Unlike the other big clubs, United have a fairly kind fixture list over the next 10 games, starting with a trip to the Hawthorns to face West Brom this weekend. Speaking to the team's podcast during the break, captain, Bruno Fernandes, reiterated his confidence in the team's ability to win games and titles, a show of support that will do the club better good than harm as they look to get out of a rough patch.
