Manchester United’s shock defeat at Burnley raised a myriad of questions, especially about the cause of the defeat. According to Winger Daniel James, one of the reasons why his team lost the match was because they failed to take advantage of the opportunities available. But from the beginning his team had indeed predicted that the match would be difficult.
Manchester United entertain Burnley on Matchday 24 Premier League, Thursday morning WIB (23/01). In the match that took place at Old Trafford Stadium, the host was surprisingly defeated with a landslide score of 0-2. For Burnley itself, this is their first win at Old Trafford since 1962 ago.
Manchester United actually appeared to dominate throughout the match. But out of a total of 24 shots they fired, only seven were on target. While Burnley actually only recorded 5 opportunities, but two of them led to goals. That fact makes Daniel James feel upset.
“From the beginning we knew that this match would be a difficult match,” James told MUTV.
The defeat was judged to be none other than the failure of the team to take advantage of existing opportunities.
“Today we are dominant in possession. We created many opportunities but we failed to convert them into goals. “He said.
Furthermore, this young British star claims that the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer army is actually struggling to catch up. Unfortunately, the efforts made did not succeed until the fight ended.
“They scored goals from set pieces, but we still believe we can end this fight with a win. When we were 2-0 down, we believed we could win this match, as happened against Sheffield United. We have that trust, but unfortunately that does not happen. “He said.
With this defeat, Manchester United must be willing to fall behind six points from Chelsea, who are ranked 4th in the Premier League standings. Obviously they must forget this defeat, because there are still many games to be played and won.
What is clear, this defeat is proof that the Red Devils do need to bring new players on the occasion of the transfer market this winter.
