Manchester United’s perfect winning record in the Premier League 2015/16 was ended by a rock solid Newcastle United side yesterday.
The Red Devils played an absolutely mundane game once again and could not score a single goal despite having 70% possession. Captain Wayne Rooney’s goal scoring drought continues much to the frustration of the Old Trafford faithful.
The fans are badly missing Robin van Persie who left Man United to join Turkish side Fenerbahce this summer. Louis van Gaal must look to sign a top quality striker before the transfer window closes in less than 10 days.
The main positive for the Red Devils is that their defense was once again brilliant and they are yet to concede a single goal in the new PL campaign. It seems that the defensive department is going to be even stronger as Louis van Gaal has insisted that they are not selling their best player of the last season David de Gea.
Arguably that is the best possible transfer news for Man United because the Spaniard is one of the best goalies in the world. However, the Dutch manager must not forget about reinforcing the attacking department where there are serious concerns at the moment.
