Wycombe Wanderers claim they're better than Man United after 3-0 win at Rochdale

Wycombe Wanderers

As the 2019-20 season gets into full swing, the pressure is really starting to ramp up on Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Red Devils have only picked up eight points from their opening six Premier League matches and rarely looked like scoring in their last league outing - a 2-0 loss at West Ham United.

On Wednesday, United advanced to the fourth round of the Carabao Cup but they needed a penalty shoot to get past Rochdale, who are currently 18th in League One.

If failing to beat a lower league side within 90 minutes at Old Trafford isn't disappointing enough, Man Utd have also been on the receiving end of a shot from Rochdale's latest opponents.

Wycombe Wanderers comfortably beat Rochdale 3-0 on Saturday, and shortly after full-time, the club's Twitter account cheekily claimed they are officially better than Man United.

Man Utd started with the likes of Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Paul Pogba, Fred and Jesse Lingard against Rochdale and took the lead thanks to Mason Greenwood's fine goal.

However, 16-year-old Luke Matheson equalised for the visitors eight minutes later before United eventually prevailed, with Daniel James converting the winning spot-kick.

Wycombe: We're better than United

Wycombe continued their encouraging start to the new season by beating Rochdale 3-0 away from home through a Fred Onyedinma brace and an Adebayo Akinfenwa strike.

Akinfenwa (aka. The Beast) isn't just the team's captain, he's also the strongest player in FIFA 20, and the result moves the Chairboys up to second in the League One table.

So, given that they beat Rochdale by three goals and Man Utd could only manage a 1-1 draw, Wanderers took the perfect opportunity to poke fun at the 13-time Premier League champions.

As you can see below, the club tweeted: "OFFICIAL: better than Man Utd" - and even had the audacity to tag United's Twitter account in the tweet as well.

It's certainly a sign of where Man United are now at that a side in League One even had the confidence to post a funny tweet at the English giants' expense.

Solskjaer's men will be desperate for improvements when they welcome Arsenal to Old Trafford on Monday night and travel to AZ Alkmaar in the Europa League.
