Rangnick talks about losing to Boro
1. Use Shaw and Sancho on the left flank
Coach Ralf Rangnick decided to use two English players Luke Shaw and Jadon Sancho in the left wing of Manchester United. This can be considered an effective choice of the German captain when both create certain impressions.
Shaw actively climbed the border and caused the Burnley defense to be stretched. He left a mark with a favorable passing situation to let Paul Pogba comfortably cushion the ball to open the scoring. Meanwhile, Sancho began to prove his worth in the same way that Rio Ferdinand judged a few days ago. He hit 3 shots but unfortunately could not score.
2. McTominay’s role
After working with Man Utd for the first time, coach Rangnick decided to change a bit in the role of midfielders. There will be an element that plays a defensive role, cleaning up behind the two players who take on the role of playing the game. And Scott McTominay is the name that is trusted to use in past matches.
The Scottish midfielder in the match against Burnley basically performed well. Statistics show that he had 9 successful duels, 3 clearances, 4 accurate tackles. Author Charlie Parker-Turner wrote: “The Scotland international has impressed in a role that supports the defence, instead of having to distract from regulating the game as before. He is only focused on winning the ball back and pushing. ball as far as possible.”
3. Trust Pogba
Paul Pogba – a factor who has just returned from a convalescence. Coach Rangnick still put his faith in him and gave him a starting spot in the match against Burnley. And the former RB Leipzig captain was right.
Pogba shows his influence in the midfield of Man Utd. He launched the winged pass as well as launched a sharp attack. No. 6’s heat map spread across the pitch shows his positivity. The opening goal was the highlight, the affirmation of the 2018 World Cup champion when he returned to the English Premier League.
Parker-Turner thinks Rangnick is creating an opportunity for Pogba to express himself, thereby aiming to convince him to stay at Man Utd.
