Here we show you how Erik Ten Hag has brought back the prime Manchester United this season

Everyone was wondering about if the Red Devils could beat Manchester City this season even for once. But Erik Ten Hag’s squad has done it again after having a bad start to the season.

United defeated City 2-1 at Old Trafford and they are now just a point behind Pep Guardiola’s boys. They have really made a sensational comeback in the Premier League after facing critics at the start of the season.

Marcus Rashford has found his prime again and has scored in his last seven consecutive appearances for United. He is one of the major reasons behind the club’s recent uprising.

  • 1 goals vs Man City
  • 2 goals vs Charlton
  • 1 goal against Everton
  • 1 goal against Bournemouth
  • 1 goal against Wolves
  • 1 goal against Nottingham
  • 1 goal against Burnley

In simple words, he has scored seven goals and has provided two assists in his last seven games. Man United have won each and every of their last 14 matches.

  • 7 games
  • 7 wins
  • 17 goals scored
  • 2 goals conceded

However, Ten Hag isn’t thinking of lifting the Premier League title this season. They are just six points behind league leaders Arsenal.

“The fans may dream but we’re not,” Ten Hag said. “We have to keep our feet on the ground and then face that our game has a lot to improve.”

Moreover, he was upset with his team for getting completely dominated by City in the second half, not to mention the latter had 71% of ball possession to United’s 29%.

“It can’t happen that after half-time we lose so much control of the game, for instance, and then getting down is unnecessary,” Ten Hag added.

“When we do the right things, when we follow the right rules, when we step up at the back in earlier moments we can control such moments and do the same as the first half. But it’s also top football, the small details have a big impact and we have to keep working on that and keep investing in that.”
