Manchester United’s recent performances have been lacklustre and demoralising, with the team losing their second consecutive Premier League game against West Ham.
The Red Devils’ top-four hopes are now in danger after their recent defeats against Brighton and West Ham. The team had a seven-point lead over Liverpool after beating Aston Villa last week, but that advantage has been reduced to just one point after their recent losses.
The main takeaway from the game against West Ham is that Manchester United look utterly exhausted. They have had a gruelling and exciting season, going deep in four competitions. But their exertions in the Europa League and both domestic cups are now putting at risk the most basic objective, which is to qualify for the Champions League.
David de Gea’s errors have cost Manchester United dearly in recent games, and it is time for the team to consider replacing him. The Red Devils must once more lean on their excellent home form if they want to secure a top-four finish this season.
