Right in the first game in charge at Manchester United, new coach Rangnick quickly made an impression when helping the Red Devils deploy a speed kick.
Manchester United won 3 points on the debut of the new coach
Manchester United’s attack with the top attacking stars in the world continuously shot Crystal Palace’s goal right after the opening whistle. In the first 45 minutes, the home team launched 8 shots, had 7 corner situations and controlled 66% of the ball on the field.
However, the scoring opportunities passed in front of the shoes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Alex Telles, Bruno Fernandes, Fred or Diogo Dalot one after another. The 0 – 0 draw in the first half can be said to be quite unfortunate compared to what Manchester United have created.
Entering the second half, the Red Devils slowed down and did not maintain great pressure as at the beginning of the match. Along with that, Crystal Palace organized a quick counter-attack by hanging the ball from two sides.
However, the defense of Manchester United with Maguire, Lindelof, goalkeeper De Gea … played firmly and easily neutralized the dangerous opportunities that the visitors created.
After many scoring opportunities missed by players on both sides, the goal finally appeared in the 76th minute.
Substitute Mason Greenwood crossed the ball to Fred, allowing the Brazilian to make a stunning right-foot cut to open the scoring for Manchester United 1-0.
For the rest of the match, Crystal Palace tried to focus on the attack to find an equalizer. However, the visitors’ belated efforts did not bring results.
With this minimal win, Manchester United provided the perfect debut for manager Rangnick. On the Premier League table, the Red Devils of Manchester rose to 6th (24 points), only 3 points behind West Ham’s 4th place.
After the victory over Arsenal, coach Carrick bid farewell to Manchester United
Under the watch of the new interim coach – Mr. Ralf Rangnick, Manchester United had an extremely difficult start.
In the 13th minute, midfielder Fred stomped on De Gea’s foot, making the goalkeeper unable to stop Emile Smith-Rowe’s shot from outside the box. The score was opened 1 – 0 for Arsenal.
But in the 44th minute, Fred redeemed himself with an assist for Bruno Fernandes to finish in the far corner to equalize the score 1 – 1.
The pace of the game was pushed up in the second half. This time, Ronaldo helped Manchester United take a 2 – 1 lead, after a close-range ball in the 52nd minute.
But just two minutes later, Odegaard had a comfortable situation with a one-touch finish to knock out goalkeeper De Gea, equalizing the score 2 – 2 for Arsenal.
In a tug-of-war, the name Fred was once again mentioned. In the 70th minute, the Brazilian midfielder brought home a penalty after he was fouled in the Arsenal box.
On the penalty spot, Ronaldo made no mistake to score the goal that sealed the final 3 – 2 victory for Manchester United over Arsenal.
Immediately after the match, interim coach Michael Carrick decided to say goodbye to Manchester United. The former Red Devils midfielder said goodbye to the Old Trafford team after 15 years of working, instead of continuing to take on the role of assistant under the new coach Ralf Rangnick.
Michael Carrick said: “My time at Manchester United has always been the best years of my career. When I signed for more than 15 years ago, in my wildest dreams, I never had. I can’t imagine myself winning so many titles.
Will certainly never forget the great memories as a player and a member of the coaching staff.
However, after much thought and deliberation, I have decided now is the right time to leave Manchester United. I would like to thank all the players and especially the coaching staff.”
When working as interim manager at Old Trafford, coach Michael Carrick helped Manchester United beat Villarreal to win tickets to the knockout round of the Champions League, draw the top team Chelsea and defeat Arsenal at Old Trafford.
