Ten Hag confident struggling Manchester United can turn things around

Erik ten Hag is confident Manchester United have the “talent and attitude as a collective” to get their season back on track, starting tonight against Newcastle.

United face Eddie Howe’s men in the fourth round of the EFL Cup just three days after a humbling 3-0 defeat at home to Manchester City, a defeat that exposed the weaknesses in Ten Hag’s squad.

The Dutchman enjoyed a strong start to his Old Trafford career but has come under pressure in recent weeks following some poor displays and his position will come under further scrutiny if Jim Ratcliffe takes a 25 per cent stake in the club as expected.

Writing in his programme notes ahead of tonight’s game, Ten Hag remains convinced he and his players can turn things around.

He wrote: “At Manchester United, every game involves high stakes. Every single day, there is pressure on everybody involved with this club, but those demands and standards are a challenge which we must always meet head on.

“While this has not been the start to the season that we had all hoped for, I am certain that we have the talent and attitude as a collective to move in the right direction.

“I believe that it is only a matter of time before we are showing our true selves. It will come, I am certain.”

Ten Hag has not been helped by a lengthy injury list. Casemiro and Aaron Wan-Bissaka are the two players closest to returning but it is thought tonight will come too soon.
