    Manchester United are being ‘held back’ by Fred and Scott McTominay, with a fascinating analysis

    Man United are being ‘held back’ by Fred and Scott McTominay

    A Manchester United supporter has explained why midfielders Fred and Scott McTominay are ‘holding the squad back.’

    Since his arrival, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s favourite midfield duo has been Fred and McTominay.

    Many believe it is a position that needs to be strengthened, and @Utd Analytics on Twitter has pinpointed why.

    Both players started the 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa on Saturday, and United were forced to ‘go long’ in the attack.

    In the images above, Raphael Varane is in possession, but Fred and McTominay are dropping back into defence.

    Varane is obliged to throw the ball to Aaron Wan-Bissaka since neither man in midfield can break the lines.

     

    Similarly, Wan-Bissaka has no one to pass to in a progressive way, so he must hoof it forward.

    The ball eventually ends up with Luke Shaw on the other side of the field, and it was a recurring problem throughout the game.

    “It was pure incompetence on our club’s part not to address this position,” a follow-up tweet reads. Players are now attempting to learn on the job.

    “You know, with Manchester United, you learn on the job. You won’t find that anywhere else. They’re both number eights, so feel terrible for them. The show is a sham.”

    “A pretty bad combo,” one enthusiast said.

    Another person added: “Look how far up they are, it’s a coaching issue. They were instructed to remain in the area.”

    While another person stated: “The formation we’ve been using is 6-0-4. One is afraid to ask for the ball, while the other treats it as if it were boiling water.”

    Dean Smith’s side won a huge game at Old Trafford thanks to Kortney Hause’s late header, with Bruno Fernandes missing a penalty after Hause’s handball.

    They currently sit fourth in the Premier League with 14 points from their first six games.

      I think there was no communication between the duo.
