Erik ten Hag’s men defeated Burnley away from home on Saturday, bouncing back from defeats in both the Premier League and Champions League, and they are now preparing for Carabao Cup action. The Red Devils are battling a number of injuries currently, and that could mean Ten Hag plays many of his starters against Palace on Tuesday night.
In the meantime, we have rounded up all the latest news and transfer rumours surrounding Old Trafford.
Vidal calls out Ten Hag
Former Bayern Munich star Arturo Vidal has called out Erik ten Hag of his handling of Cristiano Ronaldo.
He said: “That coach came in badly. How are you going to take out Cristiano Ronaldo?”
“That’s how these guys are. He was the scorer and he takes him out. The bald guys are very complicated.”
Neville’s Evans praise
Gary Neville has expressed his delight for Jonny Evans after an impressive performance from the veteran against Burnley.
He said on The Gary Neville Podcast.“I’m going to speak openly about this; when I saw Jonny Evans in the team… Jonny Evans has been a fantastic defender for Manchester United and also for Leicester City since then, and Manchester City wanted Jonny Evans three or four years ago and Pep Guardiola doesn’t pick mugs. He’s a really top centre half, Jonny Evans, a good player, good on the ball, and I thought ‘ooh Jonny’ and I was with him, because at the end of my career at Manchester United, I had a couple of games where people went past me and I got isolated, and I thought could be a game that finishes Jonny if those Burnley forwards get at him and he gets exposed.”
“I was absolutely delighted the way in which the game went for him. I thought he’d scored the goal, then he sets up the lovely little diagonal pass to Bruno Fernandes for a brilliant finish. I was happy for Jonny Evans because I had some fear before the game about how it would go, and people wouldn’t have known that and I didn’t need to say that, but that’s just how I felt.”
