Manchester United’s Recent Form and Tactics
Erik Ten Hag’s side have been on a rough patch in the past few weeks, winning just one of their last five and losing three.
Most recently, a 1-0 loss at home to Bayern Munich left the side bottom of their Champions League group. Being knocked out of Europe’s most prestigious competition is bad enough, but not even dropping down to the Europa League (had they finished third, they would have) is frankly embarrassing.

During a match – they needed a win to progress – the players looked like they did not care. The team had just two shots in the second half. Before the Bayern Munich fixture, United suffered a humiliating 3-0 defeat at home to Bournemouth, who sat 16th before the match. Ten Hag’s side failed to create a big chance from 69% possession.
Manchester United Injuries to Consider
The biggest Manchester United absence will not be from injury but from suspension. Fernandes, United’s star player, picked up his fifth league booking against Bournemouth, leaving him ineligible for this match.
Maguire went off injured against Bayern Munich, and Ten Hag has revealed that he will be “not available for the coming games, but we don’t think his injury will be long-term”.

The forward line also contains positives and negatives, as Ten Hag stated “Marcus Rashford, he will [be back, but] Martial not”.
The ever-growing injury list now consists of: Lisandro Martinez, Christian Eriksen, Casemiro, Mason Mount, and Tyrell Malacia,
