Official: Erik ten Hag announces Man Utd ‘two final race’ to beat Liverpool in next game

Man United has won 32 straight games in all competitions with only two losses, and they travel to Liverpool looking for their first victory at Anfield since 2016.

During Sunday’s matchup against Liverpool, Manchester United should welcome back Luke Shaw and Jadon Sancho.

Shaw missed Wednesday night’s FA Cup victory over West Ham due to an unidentified injury , but manager Erik ten Hag indicated that he will be ready to play on Sunday at Anfield.

Sancho missed the match against West Ham as well due to illness, but he might be back this weekend.

“I believe that our guys will return, “said Ten Hag. “I’m not sure whether you noticed, but Luke Shaw wasn’t accessible yesterday. We anticipate his return.

Sancho had a problem . Yes, I believe [he will be returning] as well, but we’ll have to wait and see how it plays out.”

This season, United’s first victory over one of the “big six” Premier League teams came against Liverpool. Since then, they have also beaten Manchester City, Arsenal, and Tottenham at home, but they have yet to defeat the top teams in the league on the road.

United suffered a 6-3 loss at City, a commendable 1-1 draw at Chelsea, and a 3-2 defeat at Arsenal thanks to an Eddie Nketiah goal in the 89th minute. Tottenham will host United the following month.

“Yeah, but I believe we’ve had some extremely strong performances away from home, “Said Ten Hag. “The pitch is the same size everywhere, there are three referees and a fourth [official], the ball is round, and there is air in the ball, huh? For me, it’s the same as always.

“So, we must play and make it our game, and of course, we are aware that the environment will not be on our side. Yet, as I already stated, our players enjoy it. Kids enjoy playing in these settings.”

In the 2020–21 Champions League group stage, Ten Hag led Ajax to Liverpool although fans were prohibited from attending games owing to the Covid–19 pandemic.

Since January 2016, United has gone seven games without a victory over their biggest rivals at Anfield.

“Well, I’ve been to Anfield “Ten Hag attested. “I’m looking forward to it because of the setting and ambiance. It will be wonderful. It will be great toward us, which is good for us.

“It’s a test, of course, but we’re going up against Liverpool, and we’re really excited about it. I know these players, my squad, and my team will be ready to go there and battle and to go there with confidence.

“We are aware of how challenging it will be and that in order to achieve success, we will have to suffer and make sacrifices.

Erik ten Hag appointment proving popular with Manchester United players

This week, Man United broke their trophy drought, and the club’s positive attitude is supported by the daily training sessions.

This season, the coaching strategies of assistant coach Steve McClaren have impressed the Manchester United players.

After leaving United for 21 years, McClaren came back in the summer, and sources have praised his coaching sessions.

The United players “love” having McClaren around, and those who were with the team last season say the current coaching staff makes training at Carrington more pleasurable.

Alejandro Garnacho, who scored his fourth goal for United in the 2-1 FA Cup victory against West Ham, is one of the young players that McClaren takes satisfaction in nurturing.

In the midweek victory, Garnacho, 18, made just his eleventh start. McClaren also has opinions on possible loan moves for some young people.

The main training coordinator is Mitchell van der Gaag, an assistant to Erik ten Hag. McClaren is one of the more vocal instructors, while Eric Ramsay is also well-known.

Before taking over at Middlesbrough and leading the team to their first major title in the 2004 League Cup final, McClaren served as Sir Alex Ferguson’s assistant between February 1999 and May 2001. In 2006, McClaren succeeded Sven-Goran Eriksson as manager of England.

Ferguson claimed that Ten Hag’s choice to appoint McClaren was wise after United defeated Newcastle in the League Cup final.

According to Ferguson, Erik has Steve McClaren as his coach, according to Sky Sports. “Steve was here with us for a while, so his background is beneficial. Steve, in my opinion, will be crucial to it.”

Ramsay will continue in his position as set-piece coach at United while also serving as Rob Page’s assistant on the Wales national team coaching staff.

“We are aware of how challenging it will be and that in order to achieve success, we will have to suffer and make sacrifices.
