EPL news: Manchester United analysis; Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Mauricio Pochettino, sackings, latest Premier League transfers

Published

on

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was oddly cheery in his post-match press conference at Old Trafford on Sunday. His comments on the game were delivered with a smile. There was even a joke about finding the top corner like Jack Grealish. If he is feeling the pressure, then it did not come across.

Privately, though, he can surely be under no illusions that the situation is becoming precarious. For the second consecutive Premier League game, his Manchester United side threw away a lead against newly-promoted opposition. It leaves them with two points from two games against Sheffield United and Aston Villa. The truth is it could easily be worse.

Round 15

This performance was not quite as poor as the one at Bramall Lane, but you would be hard pushed to call it progress. Last weekend, there were 11 minutes between Marcus Rashford scoring United’s third goal and Oli McBurnie equalising. This time, there only two between Victor Lindelof heading their second and Tyrone Mings cancelling it out.

Liverpool’s Champions League home match against Atletico Madrid and the Cheltenham Festival contributed to an increase in coronavirus deaths in the UK, a scientist has said.

Professor Tim Spector, from King’s College London, said the two events held in March had “caused increased suffering and death that wouldn’t otherwise have occurred”.

He said data from an app used to report COVID-19 symptoms showed that Cheltenham and the North West both became “key hotspots” for the coronavirus.

Despite several European countries and cities already being in lockdown by the time the sports fixtures took place, Prime Minister Boris Johnson waited until 23 March to announce his own “stay at home” message in the UK.
