5 issues Jose Mourinho must address to challenge for the title next season
What Jose Mourinho and Manchester United must do to snatch the title away from Man City.
Despite finishing second and reaching the FA Cup final, Manchester United have had a poor season by their lofty standards, and have been no match for their Blue counterparts.
Manchester City have broken the 100-point barrier, the first club in the Premier League to do so, as well as mustering a stunning 106 goals, and secured the title by 19 points. Remarkable indeed!
There are several issues that Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho must tackle to seriously challenge for the title in the upcoming season.
However, his current squad is not up to the mark and here are five issues he must quickly address.
#5 Record against smaller teams
While the Red Devils boast an impressive record against top 6 opposition, Mourinho has repeatedly bemoaned losses to some of the newly promoted and relegation-threatened teams
Defeats to Huddersfield, Newcastle United, West Bromwich Albion, as well as a League Cup exit at the hands of Bristol City, do not make for an impressive showing.
At times, the approach has been casual with no intensity in the playing. It is something the Manchester United manager will look to address in the summer.
