Manchester United: Four Key Matches That Defined Their Season

Manchester United has spent the Premier League season fighting for a Top Four spot. Four matches have been pivotal in their campaign.

United’s 2018-19 season could be broken down into three parts. First, the start of the campaign saw the Jose Mourinho meltdown show that saw him get sacked in December.

Second, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over, and the club went on a fantastic run that culminated in the upset win over Paris St. Germain in the Champions League knockout round.

Lastly, a nosedive followed the win in Paris as Manchester United won just two of their nine Premier League matches. They finished sixth in the league and were out of the Champions League, leaving fans with mixed emotions about club legend Solskjaer.

The summer transfer window saw three major signings designed to shore up a leaky backline, add pace on offense, and to add a dose of youth to the club. In came Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Daniel James, and Harry Maguire. Out went Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku.

Solskjaer did not get all the signings that he wanted, yet the stage was set for a new season with the hope that United would show the run of form that began his era rather than the one that ended the season.

It would not take long for fans to find out what kind of season it was going to be.
