Manchester United midfielder Fred believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will need all his players over a hectic period of fixtures in the next month. Fred and Scott McTominay came into the United side earlier this season and brought solidity to Solskjaer’s midfield. But their inclusion has kept the likes of Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic and Donny van de Beek on the bench. The Brazilian has stated, however, that the whole of United’s squad will be needed in the next few weeks. United host West Brom at Old Trafford on Saturday night and then face games against Istanbul Basaksehir, Southampton and PSG in quick succession.
Fred said “There are a lot of games but what’s good about it is we’ve got a really good group, and we will need everyone, That’s the best thing about having the group: we will be able to help each other, because there will be injuries, knocks and niggles. Getting a consecutive run of games and a consecutive run of wins is the goal. We know our strengths and we know what we need to work on. As I said, we have a good group and we want to try and get a good run of victories in this intense period. It’s difficult to try and put your finger on why it is that the performances at home have not been quite as good, Our goal is to improve at home because Old Trafford needs to be a fortress; it needs to be a place that opponents are scared of coming to. It’s just a case of working hard to try and get that back and get some victories under our belt. The next challenge is West Brom at home and we need to do everything we can to get the victory. We need to be patient in terms of keeping the ball moving above all, and stay calm on the ball and wait for that key moment to make that killer pass. If you try and rush it and try and go too fast then it probably won’t work, especially against the teams who are going to set up to try to nick a goal on the break. There is no point in rushing it; we know how to move the ball; we need to be patient and choose our moments correctly.”
