Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag is rallying his squad to overcome injury concerns and put forth a resilient performance against Arsenal this Sunday. Following a devastating 4-0 defeat by Crystal Palace, the Red Devils are eager to rebound, but apprehensive about facing formidable opponents at Old Trafford.

Expressing a sense of urgency, Ten Hag is calling on his key players to step up and commit to the challenge, amidst a backdrop of ongoing injury woes that have plagued United throughout the season. With stars like Marcus Rashford returning to training and Lisandro Martinez in contention, the manager is emphasising the need for greater resilience among his squad.

United’s tumultuous season has seen them suffer 13 defeats, marking a stark departure from their Premier League standards. The pressure on the manager continues to mount, with European qualification hanging in the balance unless they can stage a remarkable late-season resurgence.


The injury list remains extensive, with stalwarts like Harry Maguire, Raphael Varane, and Luke Shaw among those sidelined, exacerbating the team’s defensive vulnerabilities. Internally, discontent is brewing among players, amid growing concerns over their form and Ten Hag’s future at the club.

Following the Arsenal fixture, United face a daunting encounter against resurgent Newcastle United, followed by a challenging trip to Brighton on the final day of the season. Despite the setbacks, Erik ten Hag remains resolute in his conviction to lead the team forward, asserting that with a fully fit squad, United possess the necessary depth to compete.

“I will keep fighting,” affirmed the Dutchman. “I prepared the team in the best way I could. It was not good enough, I have to take responsibility for that, but I will find energy and prepare them for Sunday’s game.”
