Ole Gunnar Solskjaer urged to copy Thomas Tuchel to answer Man Utd dilemma

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should take a leaf out of Thomas Tuchel's book to turn Manchester United's stuttering form around, says Danny Murphy.

United suffered their second Premier League defeat of the season against Leicester on Saturday night, conceding twice in a disastrous final 10 minutes at the King Power.

Marcus Rashford thought he had snatched a point for the visitors when he levelled proceedings with eight minutes remaining.

However, Jamie Vardy went straight down the other end to restore Leicester's lead, before Patson Daka put the icing on the cake to make it 4-2 deep into stoppage time.

The manner of the defeat has heaped further pressure on Solskjaer, whose side are without a win in their last three league games.

When asked how he can turn it around at Old Trafford, Murphy advised him the Norwegian to emulate the more cautious tactical approach that is working for Tuchel at Chelsea.

“If you look at Tuchel over the last three weeks, he’s not just not changed personnel and gone: ‘You fix it’.

“He’s actually gone to a five in midfield, with three central midfielders who are all defensive and the two wing-backs, and then played two strikers – he’s only got two attacking players on the pitch.

“And look at his bench, he doesn’t care who he upsets!”

Murphy believes midfield is an issue for Solskjaer, adding: “I said this a year ago – [Paul] Pogba and [Bruno] Fernandes in the same team doesn’t work, unless you’ve got eight others who are workaholics.

“You throw [Cristiano] Ronaldo in the mix, in effect you’re carrying three, aren’t you.

“It’s fine to carry three attacking players if the rest of them know what they’re doing behind them.”
