Manchester United have made a brilliant start to their Premier League campaign, winning three and drawing one of their first four games of the season. As a result, they sit on top of the league table at this point of time. Chelsea and Liverpool have the same number of points and goal difference as well but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have scored more.
It must be pointed out though that the Red Devils have not faced a team yet who are in the top 10 of the Premier League table at the moment. And only one of the four teams has actually won a game this season till now.
Thus, it is safe to say that tougher tests lie ahead. But things are certainly looking up for the Red Devils, who have not won a trophy in the past four seasons.
Things are not absolutely perfect though and there are many areas where they could improve further. One of them is defensively and regarding how many chances they have given away in recently.
Manchester United need to give away fewer chances
If Wolverhampton Wanderers had taken their opportunities, they probably would have won the recent game against Manchester United recently. The Red Devils gave many chances away and it was a combination of brilliant goalkeeping from David de Gea and a lack of finishing from Wolves that ultimately led to them coming out of the game with all three points thanks to a late goal from Mason Greenwood.
Newcastle United had chances to score more goals as well and were very much in the game until the hour mark. Thus, things could have possibly gone any way if they had managed to find the back of the net more than once.
The combination of Raphael Varane, Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Luke Shaw at the back is new though and one would expect them to get better as they get more time to gel together. The double pivot in midfield does not appear to be fixed right now as well, and as a partnership grows there over the course of the season, they could prevent the opposition from creating chances as well.
