The right balance is yet to be found
United are yet to dazzle under Rangnick in the same way they did, albeit in extremely patchy fashion, under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The German has occasionally overseen impressive defensive displays, sometimes the Red Devils have carried eye-catching attacking threat, but rarely have all the pieces come together for any extended period of time.
As a team who used to regularly blow the rest of the division away under Sir Alex Ferguson, United have only won by more than a one-goal margin three times since the turn of the year. During the international break, Rangnick will have time to analyse that underwhelming 15-game stretch and see where improvements can be made.
