Gabriel Agbonlahor has criticized Manchester United’s performance.
Manchester United recorded a 1-0 victory over Luton Town in the 12th round of the 2023-24 Premier League (PL) at Old Trafford in Manchester, England, at 12:00 a.m. ET. The win improves United’s record to seven wins and five losses (21 points) and moves them up to sixth place, ahead of Newcastle United.
United suffered a shock defeat in Copenhagen. They desperately needed a win to bounce back ahead of the international break. The possibilities were there. The game was at Old Trafford, and the opponent was ‘promoted’ Luton. Luton are in the relegation zone this season, having realized the high barriers of the top flight.
As expected, the game was dominated by United. They dominated possession (64.5%, according to soccer stats site Fourscore) and put Luton under pressure with 15 shots on target in the 90 minutes.
However, the desired goal did not come. Rasmus Hoilearn looked isolated up front, while Alejandro Garnacho and Marcus Rashford were ineffective on either flank. Christian Eriksen, who was tasked with orchestrating the entire game, left the pitch early with an injury in the 40th minute.
In this situation, a solver emerged. The hero was ‘defender’ Victor Lindelof. In the 13th minute of the second half, after a scramble in the box, Lindelof took the ball and slammed it into the Luton net. There were no further goals and the game ended with a 1-0 win for United.
It was a clean sheet, but it was still three points. However, it wasn’t enough to rest on our laurels. Despite the objective power differential, there was a lack of offense. Sir Alex Ferguson and visiting Sam Allardyce were even caught on camera yawning during the game.
After the game, Agbonlahor spat some bitter words. Speaking to British outlet Talk Sport, he said, “United are incapable of winning by more than one goal. They are destroying the legacy of the past. Allardyce even yawned next to Sir Ferguson, who 메이저토토사이트 was probably thinking, ‘Did I come all this way to see this? United missed a lot of chances. It’s not really attractive soccer, and maybe that’s the level of United. Like in Copenhagen, that’s the level of United.”
