Baffling Man United leave more questions than answers despite thrashing Brentford

5:52 PM ETLONDON -- Manchester United remain a baffling team to watch. Despite the confusion and disjointed play on Wednesday, United came away some impressive individual performances that led to three quality goals against a well-drilled Brentford side.United's 3-1 win had its positive takeaways, which may hold a wider significance further down the line: the well-taken Anthony Elanga goal, Marcus Rashford breaking his goal drought, the growing influence of Fred in Ralf Rangnick's midfield, and the proof they can win a game without Cristiano Ronaldo scoring. But still, there are so many questions hovering over this team.This was an important three points for Rangnick, after a stop-start beginning to his time in charge of Man United. He deployed a 4-3-3 after abandoning his preferred 4-2-2...

Rangnick puts Man Utd before Ronaldo in flashpoint explanation; makes odd Anthony Elanga blunder

Ralf Rangnick explained the team-first reasons why Cristiano Ronaldo was substituted against Brentford, and made a surprise Anthony Elanga faux pas in his interview. Man Utd produced a much-improved second half display that catapulted them towards a critical 3-1 victory over Brentford. Anthony Elanga was the catalyst for the victory with his pressure-releasing goal a truly memorable one. Mason Greenwood finished off a superb move involving Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes to double the lead. Rangnick then shuffled his pack and protected his assets when substituting Greenwood and Ronaldo – much to the Portuguese’s disbelief. Nonetheless, substitute Marcus Rashford quickly justified the decision when scoring a confidence-boosting strike as United left Brentford with all thr...

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers claims Tottenham ‘didn’t win the game’ after dramatic conclusion

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers has claimed Tottenham “didn’t win the game” after the dramatic conclusion to their contest at the King Power Stadium.

Rodgers was left to rue the final minutes of madness, and felt his side handed Antonio Conte’s men all three points. He told BT Sport: “It was 93 minutes of really good work. We showed good resilience in defence. The goals we scored were terrific. “To concede the equaliser was disappointing to happen so late, but the winner was a very poor goal to concede. “It is hard to not have taken an...
