Ralf Rangnick's Man Utd hit milestone they have not achieved since Sir Alex Ferguson

Ralf Rangnick’s first game at the helm of Manchester United went off without a hitch as Fred’s 77th minute winner was enough to secure a crucial three points at home to Crystal Palace.

The 63-year-old has already conceded he wants to turn his current crop of United stars into “pressing monsters”, given Rangnick is famed for his gegenpressing tactics since adopted by Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.

Though the German coach has only taken charge of training once since being appointed due to work permit-related issues, he has already gone some way to implementing his tactical philosophy.

Desperate for his side to harry opponents into handing over possession and hurting them in transition, statistics show that United won possession 12 times in the final third against Patrick Vieira’s Eagles side.

HAVE YOUR SAY! Where will Man Utd finish under Rangnick this season? Comment below

Remarkably, that is the most amount of times United have achieved such a feat in a Premier League match since Sir Alex Ferguson ended his 26-year reign at the club back in 2013.

Prior to his arrival, Rangnick was tipped to transform this United side tactically – shifting the focus onto pressing opponents both with break-neck speed but in-game intelligence.

His style of football is thought to have inspired a number of top-tier coaches currently managing some of the finest clubs on the continent, including Klopp’s Liverpool and Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea.

Following the win over Palace, Rangnick gave his own verdict on how he likes to set his teams up, explaining: “My football is definitely not a slow waltz! I am not that far apart from Klopp in terms of our ideas about a style of football. That’s no secret.

“But you have to be aware of what kind of players you have and where they stand. I cannot ask things of them that they can’t deliver right now.”

United’s new boss went on to express caution over the coming months and play down their prospects for upcoming games, despite carrying a decent bit of momentum off the back of three wins from four in all competitions.

“I have to take them [the Manchester United players] and accept where they currently are. They are experienced and smart enough to know that.

“I cannot turn the players we have into the pressing monsters I want them to be within two, three or four weeks.”

Sunday’s win saw United leapfrog Arsenal in the table, Rangnick’s side sitting in sixth though they have played a game more than the Gunners, who travel to Everton on Monday night.
