Manchester United sinks again


By: Manu Tournoux

On the lawn of Nottingham Forest, Manchester United fell back into their ways this Saturday. The Red Devils were beaten 1-2.

It is on a false note that Manchester United ends its year 2023. At the City Ground in Nottingham, the Red Devils recorded their 9e setback of the season. And we can’t say it was scandalous.

Manchester United woke up too late

United relapsed, as they remained on a stunning success against Aston Villa (3-2). Against Nuno Spirito’s gang, the Red Devils did everything in reverse. Their case seemed hopeless. The best symbol of this helplessness is the 2e goal conceded at 82e just after Marcus Rashford’s equalizer (78e).

The Mancunians are cursed this season. The proof is one of their former players who caused their loss this Saturday evening. Anthony Elanga, who had not found favor in the eyes of Erik Ten Hag, did all the work on the second goal for the locals. He moved up the entire court before serving on a Morgan Gibbs-White plate.

United will be able to ruminate on this action, just as they will be able to ruminate on Diogo Dalot’s shot on the post (56e) while the score was zero everywhere. It was the turning point of the match. 8 minutes later, the Argentinian Nicolas Dominguez opened the scoring in favor of Forest at the conclusion of a good collective movement.

With the energy of desperation, MU pushed towards the end to save at least the point from the draw. No result. Even ten minutes of stoppage time were not enough to achieve a draw. Apart from a blocked strike from Bruno Fernandes (94e), released with a nice tap by the goalkeeper, there was no alert on the Nottingham goals.
