Key Developments:
ESPN’s report suggests that ten Hag is encountering difficulty in retaining the backing of crucial players following the team’s 10th league defeat this season.

The players, disheartened by the recent outcomes, have voiced concerns, especially regarding rigorous training sessions and what they perceive as excessively attacking tactics.

Notably, ten Hag has publicly praised players, a move that some members of the squad reportedly don’t respond well to, contrasting with criticism.

Broader Scenario:
Manchester United currently occupies the seventh position in the Premier League standings, trailing five points behind fourth-placed Aston Villa and nine points behind league leaders Arsenal.

The team faces a pivotal series of fixtures leading up to Christmas, including matches against Chelsea, Bournemouth, and Liverpool in the league, along with a crucial encounter against Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

United, currently at the bottom of their Champions League group, needs a victory against Bayern and a draw between Copenhagen and Galatasaray to have any chance of advancing to the knockout stages.

Noteworthy Fact:
Despite their challenging league campaign, Manchester United has not drawn a league game this season, suffering six defeats in 14 matches.

No other team in the top 10 has experienced as many losses, with Crystal Palace, placed 12th, being the next highest team with a similar number of defeats.

Future Challenges for ten Hag:
With crucial fixtures on the horizon, including a clash with Chelsea on Wednesday, ten Hag faces the task of motivating his players. A potential defeat in the upcoming game could elevate the pressure on the Dutch manager.
