Manchester United fans can be the most frustrated fans at the moment. Boasting a few quality players, the club hasn’t used its potential to show up well in some crucial matches. Their rival star, Erling Haaland, is scoring goals rapidly at Manchester City. However, experts are now blaming the Red Devils team for their ineffectiveness in being like City. A former English player and now expert says even Haaland would not score if he would be at Manchester United.

Haaland was criticized heavily for not working as hard as needed. Fans also accused the Manchester City striker of not scoring in important matches, yet the support from his team was impeccable. Keeping this in mind, a soccer pundit explains the plight of  United soccer players, by saying that even Haaland cannot help.

There’s not just one reason for Manchester United fans to be disappointed. The owners in charge are string-headed to keep the club despite the fans’ displeasure. The coach, on the other hand, seems to test their patience by providing excuses for every single loss. But from an expert and former player’s perspective, the problem even exists with the players. Gabby Agbonlahor said that even Erling Haaland cannot score with a team like this, explaining the problems of their lone warrior, Rasmus Hojlund.

He said, “Even Haaland wouldn’t score on this Man United team in the Premier League. They starve him (referring to Hojlund) for the service. Antony gets the ball, he gets inside but doesn’t put the crosses in. Rashford does the same on the left-hand side. No one puts the crosses in for him.”

The expert on talkSPORT blamed Manchester United’s players for playing a more self-centered game. Instead of providing crosses to their striker, they play their own game, feels Agbonlahor. Whereas, their counterpart Manchester City’s midfield supports Haaaland, instead of themselves scoring. Kevin De Bruyne treated Haaland with plenty from last season, which helped him amass 54 goals.

Manchester United bought Hojlund from Atlanta in the last transfer window for $82 million. The player is a strong, powerful striker with a stellar finishing ability. But as Paul Scholes mentioned, the star is more like Alan Shearer, where he will need more balls inside the area to score goals.

Hojlund, as told by the former Aston Villa player, does not receive enough service to score goals. Marcus Rashford and Antony, in particular, were mentioned to play on their own. Antony, especially, had many opportunities to pass but chose not to, says the expert.
