Is Solskjaer too lenient with Manchester United players?

Manchester United fans are not a happy side at the moment and their pain is becoming unbearable. After facing a torrid time in the last season, the heartbreak seems to be creeping in this season again.

Thrashing Chelsea 4-0 was a magnificent phenomenon. But drawing to Wolverhampton Wanderers and losing to Crystal Palace in a span of a week raised a serious concern about some players’ mentality.

Particularly, United fans are questioning the inclusion of Jesse Lingard as a starter in a team that looks spineless. And fans are speculating that the manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is being too loyal to some players like Lingard.

Solskjaer is also accountable for Lingard’s malaise. Lingard was instrumental up until he pulled his hamstring against Paris Saint-German in February, and was rushed back the following week against Liverpool but broke down again 18 minutes after coming on.

Remarkably, the Norwegian coach started a half-baked Lingard in the FA Cup ejection by Wolves in March and he played within himself. He has not looked the same player since.

According to statistics, the English midfielder has only provided 4 goals and 2 assists since May last year.

But why is he still a starter and yet has not been productive?

The former player cum manager has also remained indecisive on which player should be responsible for penalties. Their last two matches have seen them lose 2 penalties- through Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford.
