Man Utd barely manages to scrap a nervy win against Luton

Man Utd barely manages to scrap nervy win against luton . Although Manchester United managed to beat Luton Town 2-1 in the Premier League on Sunday they lacked the nerve  to control the game. Despite earning them their fifth consecutive win, their bid to qualify for the UEFA Champions League is far from over. The small and outdated Kenilworth Road Stadium has been a challenging location for this season’s top sides, with each of them facing difficulties when visiting Luton. Despite Manchester United racing to a 2-0 lead within seven minutes, the remainder of their match was “fraught” and “chaotic.”

Mayhem ensued after Rasmus Hojlund scored Manchester United’s fastest-ever Premier League away goal; Luton quickly pulled a goal back and dominated the rest of the half. Fortunately for United, they managed to hang on, securing the win and closing the gap between themselves and the top four.

United’s manager Erik ten Hag admitted that his team was still far from playing a controlled game and must find a “smoother passage through games.” He recognized the need for his players to remain “all-time 100 percent focused,” regardless of their position in the match.

Not a new occurance

This shaky win was not a new occurrence for Manchester United, who have struggled to maintain composure against opponents like Luton and have only managed one-goal-per-game and nine defeats from 18 matches. Peter Shmeichel also had this to say, “Man Utd played Luton off the park for six minutes, after that it was so bad”. The result was good but there was lack of concentration and character.

The experienced spine of United’s team, including Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford, were inefficient in their performance against Luton. Harry Maguire was bullied by Carlton Morris, while Jonny Evans and Scott McTominay contributed to settling things down in the second half. The chaos took a different form in the second half: missed chances. While there is great promise in the forward line of Hojlund, Rashford, and Garnacho, they still lack efficiency.
