(Video) “This is not new” – Rio Ferdinand slams Man Utd’s home form after Everton draw

Manchester United came away without the win at Old Trafford once again as Everton claimed a point. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side took the lead in the first half but a second-half equaliser from Andros Townsend earned the visitors the draw.

The result leaves Manchester United with just 14 points from their opening seven games, with two of the three games points have been dropped in coming at Old Trafford.

It’s a familiar feeling for Manchester United fans, with last season’s poor record at home still fresh in the memory. Solskjaer would have been hoping to leave that in the last campaign but so far this season, the struggles at the Theatre of Dreams remain.

“This isn’t new though,” he told BT Sport after United’s draw with Everton, as seen above. “This is the reason why they didn’t challenge last season – not winning enough games at home. 

“Away from home suited them, their record phenomenal. But here at Old Trafford last season, they continually dropped points, today is another result that is very similar to last season. You need to see that shift from last season’s results and the mindset of last season of dropping points at Old Trafford.

“This place should be a fortress where teams like Verton, who are actually understrength today, should be put to the sword and they haven’t been today.”

  1. I will whole heartedly agree. Ole cannot be the way forward. Yet another season where our old fortress has become more like an open access library. Teams we should be pummelling are now coming to old trafford knowing they can easily pick up at least a point. We batter the door for 15-20 minutes then, because we can’t score, we drop right off and let the opposition counter at will.
