The Manchester United fiasco just keeps on getting better for the rival fans. However, it has been a painful experience for others who have followed the club since their heydays.

A shocking defeat in the first match against Brighton was thought of as a blip before United’s season finally took off. A thumping defeat against the newly promoted Brentford side however swept all the doubts about United’s calibre and took everyone face to face with the reality.

Thus, their poor form has been a worry. Not only that but they have been freefalling into uncertainty ever since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013. After eight managerial changes United have fallen out of Champions League places and now aim for the fourth spot.

There are innumerable reasons for their misery but here we will look at three reasons why Manchester United will struggle this season.

1. Lack of world-class players

Manchester United once ruled the footballing world. They had players like Paul Scholes, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Peter Schmeichel, Roy Keane, Eric Cantona and many others who dominate the football folklore today.

Now, they have either overpriced young players or players who are past their prime. No matter what they do, no club can win big with mediocre players. United would need to bring in a lot of quality players, something that does not seem achievable this season.
