Well, well, well. Not many fans could've predicted that Manchester United would be in such a position at this point in the season. Not only have they not acheived the desired results, but they lack the creativity, speed, and finesse that won them their 20th Premier League title last year.
In order to get back on track, here are three things that David Moyes and his team must get right.
1. Everyone must trust each other
Many fans can predict the starting XI a month ahead of time. This is due to the fact that Moyes does not trust all of his players. He has lined up a similar XI in recent games. With "Fergie", each and every one of the players trusted each other to do the job on the pitch, and if they didn't, the famous "hair-dryer" treatment was their consequence. Trust is something Moyes will have to work on.
2. Rotation is needed.
A big club like Manchester United is featuring in not one, not two, but three competitions, so picking the same XI over and over will eventually take its toll on the players. No one can argue that Moyes does not have enough players to rotate. He has at least two players for every position on the field. Not only will rotation keep all the players fighting for a spot like they should, but it will help prevent injuries and fatigue.
3. Consistency is key
Every week is unpredictable for United nowadays; one day they beat Bayer Leverkrusen at home, and the next they allow Southampton to equalise in the dying moments of the match. David Moyes must help his players find a rhythm that is not only attractive for fans to watch, but will give them the necessary results. They must register wins week in, week out from now on if they have any hope of winning silverware this season.
These three things will provide United with not only new look to their football, but also give them the wins that they need.
