Football legend Arsene Wenger has analyzed the critical errors made by Manchester United in their recent Premier League loss to Manchester City.

With Erling Haaland netting twice and Phil Foden adding another, Pep Guardiola’s team secured a vital victory at Old Trafford.

Wenger highlighted Manchester United’s struggles in building up play from the back, emphasizing that these difficulties eroded the players’ confidence during the match.

According to him, there was a disconnect between Man United’s attacking and defensive players which allowed Man City too much space during the encounter.

Speaking on belN Sports, the Frenchman insisted that Erik ten Hag’s side had no hope during the clash, adding that he felt sorry for them.

“I would say the gulf between the two teams became bigger and bigger as the game went on,” Wenger told beIN Sports.

“In the end, for such a big club you felt sorry for Man United because there is no hope in the team.

“I don’t see where they can improve, basically. This team has lost confidence, quality and even spirit today. I would say it was not a great fighting spirit from Man United, on top of that.

“I believe where Man United suffers a lot, first of all is about the quality, the individual quality of the players.

“And I felt today they were very poor at building the game up from the back. They gave the ball so many times to the goalkeeper when they had possibilities to play forward. I would say it started there.”

He added, “Then you make the whole team uncertain and lack confidence because when you feel the fear is behind, they do not want the ball.

“I would say the second part of their big problem today was the huge distance between the striker and the defenders.”
