In the third round of the FA Cup, the attack of the Manchester United club (M.U) failed to make a direct shot on the opponent’s goal.
This is the first time since January 1.2015, “Red Devils” again fell into a state of harmless attack in a match in the domestic league. 5 years ago, against Southampton in the Premier League, M.U also fell into the same situation.
With this draw, M.U will have to play against Wolverhampton at Old Trafford next time, and cause both teams to face a dense schedule.
In January, MU still had 2 semifinals for the English League Cup with Man City, while Wolverhampton added this match to make them even more tired after having played 36 matches because they also attended Europa qualifying matches.
Coach Solskjaer launched a strong squad for M.U in attack with young star Mason Greenwood with the support of Daniel James and Juan Mata. However, it was not until the second half from the 70th minute when Marcus Rashford added to strengthen the attack of the “Red Devils” to sharpen.
In which Rashford missed a chance to score when he entered the field, but unfortunately the shot hit captain Wolverhampton Conor Coady put the ball to the crossbar. Wolverhampton then responded with a shot from Raul Jimenez’s crossbar.
These are considered the two most worthwhile situations in the meeting between Wolverhampton and M.U, while the rest of the visitors, although playing a bit more, do not make goalkeeper John Ruddy (Wolverhampton) to show off.
Although the draw was quite disappointing, coach Solskjaer was pleased to play again because he thought that Wolverhampton was really a very difficult opponent when playing at home. Wolverhampton’s Nuno Espirito Santo was regretful because the home team missed many opportunities to score to end the match and had to play it again. While M.U had to play again, Man City easily entered the fourth round with a 4-1 victory over the lower team Port Vale; Leicester City also went ahead when they won Wigan Athletic 2-0. Similarly, Bournemouth won Luton Town 4-0.
