2. Original problem
The team’s Eric Ten Hag can’t seize the opportunity. when they have a chance to score a goal
“The first goal is meaningful. Our chances are better than theirs. We should score a goal. We lost a bit of control towards the end. Our midfield is too open,” the Red Devils boss told the BBC after the game.
Manchester United has a total of 16 shots in this game, 5 times on the frame, with one of those occasions. According to statistics, they “Create a golden opportunity” 2 times, but instead “missed a golden opportunity” both times.
This means that their sharpness in this game is 0 per cent even though their xG (Expected Goals) or probability of scoring a goal is 1.38.
It’s a job for Ten Hag to find a striker who can produce goals for the team this summer. And this problem needs to be fixed.
