MU had to play lack of people in the last minutes of the Southampton match despite only replacing 4 players. So what is the reason why coach Solskjaer cannot replace the 5th person to preserve the advantage?
MU was unable to get satisfactory results against Southampton. Obafemi’s injury-time goal made all efforts to preserve MU’s points ruined. It is worth mentioning that it was a goal scored in MU post only 10 people on the field after injury of Brandon Williams. MU was unable to add more personnel in the most important time even though only 4 people were replaced. What is the reason?
Under the new law after Covid-19, football clubs are entitled to replace 5 players in a match, but that 5 substitutions can only be made in 3 times. Therefore, with the coach brought into the pitch Fred (63 minutes), Brandon Williams (75 minutes) and 2 players McTominay, Daniel James (84 minutes), MU no longer replaced anyone under the new law.
Brandon Williams suffered a lot of head bleeding after a collision with defender Kyle Walker-Peter on the Southampton side. Although Walker-Peter was only a little light-headed, Williams was hit hard and had to leave the pitch, thanks to the care of the doctors. The fact that the Reds had to play short of people in the last minutes indirectly caused them to receive goals in the injury time.
MU will officially enter the top 4 if they win all 3 points against Southampton, but unfortunately they were unable to preserve the victory in the last minutes. With a regretful draw against Southampton, MU missed the opportunity to reach the top 4. Currently, this club has the same score as the fourth ranked team Leicester City, but is less than this team in terms of effectiveness. number. Premier League has only 3 rounds left, with the current situation, MU will have much work to do for the journey back to the Champions League.
