Sky Sports reporter Michael Bridge feels that all is not well at Manchester United at the moment.
The Red Devils have had a mixed start to the season both domestically and in Europe, and currently find themselves outside the top four in the Premier League.
What’s the latest news at Man United?
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men started their league campaign well, winning four of their opening five matches.
However, United’s form has dipped in recent weeks, with the team losing two of their last three top-flight games. This included being beaten 4-2 by Leicester last weekend, where the side delivered a dismal display.
It has not been plain sailing in the Champions League either. The 13-time Premier League champions slipped to a shock 2-1 defeat against Young Boys in their first group match. They have managed to win their last two European matches, though, beating Villarreal and then Atalanta earlier this week, coming from 2-0 down to win 3-2.
What has Bridge said about Man United?
Despite that stirring fightback against their Serie A opponents, Bridge is still not convinced about United. He has hinted that Solskjaer still does not know what his best team is, and is finding it difficult to keep all of his attacking players happy.
Speaking about Solskjaer’s problems, Bridge told GIVEMESPORT: “He wants to play Greenwood, he wants to play Rashford. He promised Cavani he’d play more if he stayed, and now Cavani’s on the bench.
“It seems incredible that we’re questioning the Cristiano Ronaldo signing, but something at the moment isn’t right with Manchester United.”

How will Man United line-up against Liverpool?
Solskjaer named a very attacking line-up when United faced Leicester, and it backfired horribly. With Cristiano Ronaldo, Mason Greenwood, Jadon Sancho, Bruno Fernandes and Paulo Pogba on the pitch at the same time, the side looked very open for long periods and conceded four goals.
Sancho and Pogba were then left out in midweek against Atalanta, but United still had problems defensively, as they shipped two goals inside the opening half hour.
With Liverpool scoring goals at will right now, it seems likely that Solskjaer will probably go with a slightly more defensive-minded line-up to try to stop Jurgen Klopp’s men running riot.
This could mean that some big names are left on the bench once again, which would leave Solskjaer open to criticism if things go wrong at Old Trafford.
