Of all the talks about Manchester United being bad this season, their premier league form may just about be underrated as the Red Devils again nicked out the result against Chelsea.
The premier league mid-week tie was a fixture that had the West-London side the marginal favorites heading into the clash, although not based on form but the narrative that Chelsea turn up against the bigger side.
However, if there was anything to be taken out from the game at Old Trafford, it was that Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United knew what they wanted to give fans.
The Manchester United boss has reacted to the 2-1 victory against the West-London team, and in his post-match presser, the Dutchman was full of praise for one man.
Speaking on the team’s Brazilian star, Antony who has seen himself in the media spotlight based on allegations of domestic violence, said of the former Ajax forward;
“I agree, I think he [Antony] is progressing,” Ten Hag notes, reacting to the criticisms the Brazilian has faced from pundits and fans.
“This is the attitude and what he needs. It is what he has to contribute to the team. He was very bright, he got very good positions on the ball, he also made very good decisions, he is stepping up and he has to build on this.”
The Red Devils were able to claim all 3-points thanks to midfielder, Scott McTominay who turned up with a brace to move Manchester United 3 points behind City rivals, Manchester City.
New signing Sofyan Amrabat also shared his thoughts on the game in his post match interview.
Amidst the leaks going about the team’s dressing midfielder asserts that Erik ten Hag remains one of the best in the world, debunking reports of the team being against him.
Hero of the night, Scott McTominay also shared similarly sentiments, with the Scotland international debunking reports of Erik ten Hag’s hectic training sessions in his post match interview;
“To be honest with you, the manager. The way he approached this game. A lot of light training sessions, to keep us fresh.”
