Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick criticized the finishing of his side after a goalless draw against relegation-threatened Watford. Despite mustering 22 shots including three clear-cut chances, their top-four ambitions took a big hit. They could not break down a defense that conceded four against Crystal Palace at home a few days back in the Premier League.
“It feels once again like two points dropped that we should have easily won,” Manchester United manager Ralf Rangnick 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.”
“In the end, it’s about efficiency, about being clinical in front of goal, and this is not for the first time, unfortunately,” he added. “But apart from that, we were in full control of the game. They had one or two moments, but apart from that, we dominated the game completely. If we only had two or three opportunities in the game, we could ask ourselves what can we do to create even more. But I think the number of clear chances we had today has to be enough to win a game like this.”
