72% duels lost: MUFC dud who lost the ball every 3.2 touches has already failed Ralf - opinion

Having watched his new suitors defeat Arsenal on Thursday evening from the stands, interim Manchester United manager Ralf Rangnick took charge of the Red Devils from the dugout for the first time on Sunday.

The German got off to the perfect start as United scraped a 1-0 victory over a resolute Crystal Palace outfit at Old Trafford with Fred’s late stunner the decisive moment.

None of the Manchester club’s stellar attacking options stood out, with the winning goal having to come through a rare strike from the Brazilian midfielder.

However, there was one man who was particularly disappointing in Rangnick’s first game: Jadon Sancho.

It’s no secret that the 21-year-old has struggled to replicate his fabulous form at Dortmund for Manchester United since arriving for £73m in the summer. However, there had been signs of late that the winger was starting to blossom.

The Manchester United Evening News stated that Sancho now “looks like a different player from the one who started the season”, however, he was ineffective on Sunday afternoon.

In what was a quiet game, Sancho struggled to make any sort of impact, losing possession 15 times (every 3.2 touches) as well as failing to win any of his aerial duels and coming off best in just two of six ground duels (72% overall).

As a result, Rangnick opted to withdraw the Englishman in the 62nd minute as United looked for an alternative strategy to secure the three points.

Despite an ineffective performance, there is still optimism that United fans are starting to see glimmers of the Sancho they hoped for after goals against Villareal and Chelsea in recent weeks. Ironically, both came after the dismissal of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

It took Sancho 15 games to net his first goal in a United shirt against Villareal and is still yet to register an assist for the Red Devils.

There is undoubtedly potential there, but Rangnick will have to find a solution to get the best out of the £81m-rated man. For now, however, the wide man has already failed his new interim manager.
