van Gaal needs luck

In a game that could have ended on a happier note for the Red Devils, the wrong decisions of the manager led to a frustrating result. The home team lost to Norwich City in a disappointing 1-2 result at Old Trafford. After being 0-2 down to the away squad, Anthony Martial scored the only goal from the Manchester United squad.

The players performed relatively better when compared to their former games. However, one expected Rooney to carve his name on the score sheets on this important day as today’s game marked his 500th appearance for the English giants. The England international had returned from injury after missing some games.

Chris Smalling too was seen in the game today after recovering from former injuries. Bastian Schweinsteiger remained excluded from the squad as his 3 match ban came into action from today’s fixture.

The meltdown from the fans began after Schneiderlin wasn’t selected by the gaffer in the starting XI. Ander Herrera too wasn’t given full game time and was only seen as a substitute played on for Maroune Fellaini in the 59th minute. With Martial, the recent awardee of the Golden Boy, being the lone scorer for United, the Red Devils were defeated 1-2 at full time.

This added to their misery as they have already been kicked out off the Champions League and have been dropped down to the Europa League where they would Midjytlland. The pressure has been built up on Louis van Gaal as the Dutchman fears being sacked after the team’s poor form. His failed philosophy hasn’t fruited results and his process hasn’t been useful, either. The last time United failed to win in six matches, they won the treble in 1998-99. United will do well to win anything this season. Van Gaal will do well to keep his job.
