Erik ten Hag explains Manchester United team vs Man City as Ronaldo and Casemiro on bench

Erik ten Hag, manager of Manchester United, has picked the same team that defeated Arsenal against Manchester City.

Erik ten Hag has picked an unchanged Premier League starting XI to face Manchester City in order to demonstrate his “confidence” in his players, who have been performing well.


On Sunday, United will play their first Premier League game in 28 days when they take on their neighbors City. Ten Hag’s team is currently on a four-game winning streak but has been unable to extend it for over a month due to the postponement of the league due to the death of Queen Elizabeth II and the international break.


United’s previous Premier League game saw them overcome the undefeated Arsenal 3-1, and Ten Hag has decided to name the same starting XI that day, made possible by Marcus Rashford’s late return from an ankle injury. Some fans expected changes to the lineup, with many hoping to see Casemiro make his first domestic start to counter City’s strong midfield.


Ten Hag, on the other hand, has stayed with the same club and explained why. “When you have guys back fit and I think they’ve got some nice performances in, and when you’re doing quite well, it’s good to give them the trust,” he told MUTV.


“I believe they demonstrated in the final weeks before the break that they can do it with this lineup.” So we’re sure that we’ll get a result and a win. I believe it is always about you. We appreciate our opponents and the players they bring to the field. They have a lot of talented players. Clear.


“However, you must play as a team in all aspects of football; it is not only about attacking.” I believe that everything, especially in this game because we are playing a good squad, must be perfect in order for us to win. We must excel in every element.”


Ten Hag also tried to reassure fans that Rashford, despite being a doubt for the encounter, is totally fit. “He trained well, returned to team training, and we took the proper steps,” he told the BBC. He’s in good shape.”
