Despite the absence of key players Casemiro and Christian Eriksen, Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag insists that his team still needs to win games. The Red Devils have not won a league match since February, and Ten Hag believes that other midfielders must step up in order to fill the gap. “When you miss two quality players it’s clear, but you have a squad and when you don’t have them you still have to win,” he said.
United will face Brentford on Wednesday at Old Trafford, but Casemiro will not be available due to his four-game suspension. Eriksen, who has been out since January with an ankle injury, has returned to first-team training, but is not expected to be back until late April. In August, Brentford beat United 4-0 in the reverse fixture, which was Ten Hag’s second match in charge.
Ten Hag is adamant that his team must find a way to win despite the absence of key players. He believes that the squad must come together and work hard to get the results they need. He also believes that the team must stay focused and motivated in order to achieve success. “When you don’t have them you still have to win,” he said.
Manchester United have a tough task ahead of them as they look to end their winless streak. With two important players out of action, Ten Hag knows that his team must dig deep and find a way to get the job done. He is confident that his squad can rise to the challenge and prove their worth. Despite the difficult circumstances, Ten Hag is determined to see his team succeed and get back to winning ways.
