Round 26 of the Premier League, Man Utd has a trip to the Elland Road Stadium. The Red Devils played explosively in the first half and got 2 goals thanks to Harry Maguire and Bruno Fernandes. However, in the second half, Leeds United had 2 consecutive goals in less than 2 minutes, scored by Rodrigo and Raphinha.

In the 67th minute, coach Ralf Rangnick immediately made 2 changes. He in turn withdrew Jesse Lingard and Paul Pogba to rest, launching on Anthony Elanga and Fred. The German strategist’s calculation immediately came into play. 3 minutes later, Fred raised the score to 3-2 for Man Utd after his left shot. In the 88th minute, it was Elanga’s turn to open fire, setting a 4-2 victory.

 Rangnick has made reasonable substitutions.

According to statistics from ESPN, the Red Devils have scored 10 Premier League goals from substitutes when on the pitch, four more than any other team. Five of them were made under Ralf Rangnick , including the latest two goals from Fred and Elanga.

Although it is still difficult to help the players adapt to the new style, Rangnick has shown the ability to turn the situation ingenious thanks to reasonable substitutions. This is also an important factor in the success of a coach.
