Arsenal legend Ian Wright has revealed Manchester United’s sluggish starts in games should be a big worry for manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after we failed to beat bottom-placed West Brom.
Our recent inconsistent form continued at the Hawthorns as we dropped two points against West Brom on Sunday to lose further ground in the Premier League title race.
Bruno Fernandes’ brilliant volley cancelled out Mbaye Diagne’s 83rd-second opener but we failed to score a winner despite our dominate possession display.
Assessing United’s performance on Match of the Day, Wright said: “That would be a worry for me if I was a Manchester United fan, how slow they start matches. When are they going to address that?
“Harry Maguire was talking about Victor Lindelof being fouled [for the West Brom goal], but he [Diagne] wins the ball for me, he just wanted it more.
“They [Maguire and Lindelof] were bullied about by the big centre forward today. Manchester United were very fortunate not to lose that game.”
The draw leaves the Red devils seven points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City, who have a game in hand.
