‘We’re as surprised as the fans’: Axel Tuanzebe reveals Manchester United stars are baffled by woeful Old Trafford form that has seen Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men lose three of four Premier League home games so far
- Axel Tuanzebe cannot determine why Man United have started the season badly
- Red Devils have taken just ten points from seven matches and languish in 14th
- Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side host West Brom at Old Trafford on Saturday night
- United have lost three of the four matches played in their home stadium so far
Manchester United defender Axel Tuanzebe admits Manchester United’s dismal start to the Premier League season at Old Trafford is as surprising to the players as it is to everybody else.
The Red Devils have taken just ten points from seven matches overall and languish in 14th place in the division as a result.
But it is at Old Trafford where the form is most concerning, with United seemingly unable to win at their once-fortress of a stadium.
United have lost three of the four matches played in their home stadium so far, with a mental block seemingly falling upon the players as they step onto the famous pitch.
Axel Tuanzebe cannot put his finger on why Manchester United are struggling at home

United return to action at home this weekend against strong relegation candidates West Brom, looking to build upon a recent victory over Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton.
Tuanzebe however admits that it is difficult to place a reason on exactly why United have been struggling so much.
‘I couldn’t tell you, to be honest,’ Tuanzebe told United Review, as report the Mirror.
‘I think we just need to go out and play the game like it’s any other game.
‘It’s as surprising to us as it is to the fans and everyone else watching.
‘But we definitely need to correct it.’
Tuanzebe has been brought back into the United fold and performed admirably against PSG
The young defender has noted that the absence of fans has made a huge difference this season, but acknowledges that this impacts both teams on the pitch and can also have positive effects as well as negative.
He added: ‘You can say that the pressure from the opposition fans has kind of faded, which, to some extent, makes things easier for the away team.
‘Fans are a massive part of the game [but] now you can hear everything that’s being said, you can communicate easily with your team-mates.’
