Erik Ten Hag’s team is still facing many difficulties in the upcoming period.
About a week ago, Manchester United somewhat brought excitement and hope to their fans as they climbed to the 6th position on the standings with an impressive streak. Under Erik Ten Hag’s guidance, they were only one win away from the top 4, and everything seemed to be within control for the Red Devils.
However, within a week, the situation changed rapidly, and Manchester United returned to a disappointing and frustrating spell. Firstly, they suffered a 0-3 defeat at the hands of AFC Bournemouth at home, a team struggling in the mid-table.
The challenges didn’t stop there as they continued to face defeat against Bayern Munich in the Champions League. Concluding their journey in the competition at the bottom of Group A and even missing out on the Europa League.
With 15 goals conceded, Erik ten Hag’s team became the first English representative to finish the Champions League group stage with this record. Manchester United has lost 12 matches this season, accounting for a 50% loss rate, more than their win count.
The nightmare persists as they have to face Liverpool this weekend, with Bruno Fernandes suspended. Anh Harry Maguire is doubtful due to an injury sustained in the match against Bayern Munich.
In December, Manchester United will go up against Aston Villa, West Ham, and Nottingham Forest in the Premier League. However, with the current difficulties, the chances of securing all 9 points seem slim. Erik ten Hag and his team are facing a significant challenge, and there is a possibility he may be under pressure for termination in the coming weeks.
