United boss rues wasteful display against Watford
Ralf Rangnick criticised Manchester United’s continued profligacy in front of goal after a home stalemate at home to Watford hit their top-four hopes.
Despite racking up an expected goals tally of almost 2.5, registering 22 shots and three ‘clear-cut chances’, United failed to find a way past former goalkeeper Ben Foster in the Watford goal, three days after the Hornets had conceded four times at home to mid-table Crystal Palace.
“It feels once again like two points dropped that we should have easily won,” he said. “I think we did everything apart from scoring. We had in both halves enough chances to win that game. But we didn’t, and that’s why we, not for the first time, dropped two important points in a very important game.
“In the first half we had four clear opportunities that normally are enough to score at least one or two goals, and in the second half it was similar.
Asked why good players were not taking chances, Rangnick said: “It is difficult to say. Our job as coaches and the head coach is to help the team create enough chances.http://www.fanchesterunited.com/united-boss-rues-wasteful-display-against-watford/
