In the last Manchester derby, Manchester United were beaten 4-1 by Manchester City at the Etihad. The double of Kevin de Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez completely overshadowed Jadon Sancho’s goal. After nearly 7 months, Man Utd has entered a new era with the guidance of coach Erik ten Hag. The Dutch military leader really made many changes to help Man Utd show a very positive face at the present time.
After 2 bad matches, the Red Devils won the maximum points from 12 matches after the last 4 matches. In this way, the Old Trafford team excellently defeated Liverpool and Arsenal.
Ten Hag made some quality additions after the 2022 summer market when Casemiro, Antony, Christian Eriksen, Lisandro Martinez and Tyrell Malacia arrived at the team. Except for Casemiro, the rest of the faces have won the trust of the former Ajax captain. It can be said that Ten Hag is doing a good job of refreshing the Red Devils squad.
This is true if you compare the current force of Man Utd in the last match against Man City in March. Accordingly, only 4 players who started on that day including David de Gea, Bruno Fernandes, Scott McTominay and Jadon Sancho are expected to be able to play against the neighbor in the upcoming match.
Ten Hag has used many other names and Antony, Martinez, Raphael Varane, Malacia and Diogo Dalot all left a strong impression. After only a short time, Man Utd changed almost its frame. Not to mention the club is showing new and promising football compared to the past.
The Old Trafford team is therefore expected to win a positive result at the home of the great rival. If Ten Hag’s army has at least 1 draw or even defeats Man City, Man Utd will really make a strong impression on the experts.
