Even the steward Ronaldo hit in the face with one of his warm-up pile-drivers may have seen more of the ball than Ronaldo did in the second half.

Solskjaer’s lack of confidence in United’s shape when down to ten men spoke volumes of how he feels about his deeper midfield options. Indeed, his worries are not unfounded.

After-all, the whole midfield could not get near Young Boys in the second half, even when Nemanja Matic was introduced for Fernandes towards in the 72nd minute.

Scott McTominay’s absence was deafening, and a midfield partnership of the Scot and Rice may be on Solskjaer’s wish-list this season.

But if the events conspired in Switzerland reappear in Villarreal and Atalanta during this Champions League campaign, then United’s desperation, and with that Rice’s transfer fee, could only increase.
