Erik ten Hag: Man United’s Injury Update Better Than Expected For Liverpool Face-Off

Liverpool vs man united

Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, confirming the availability of key players such as Marcus Rashford and Luke Shaw for the upcoming clash against Liverpool.

Supporters were worried about United facing severe depletion, especially with Shaw dealing with a hamstring injury, and Rashford sidelined due to illness.

However, Ten Hag brought a positive update regarding both players, offering a glimmer of hope amid the concerns.

He said:

Luke Shaw trained this morning, so we think he’s available for Sunday. Marcus Rashford (is available).”

Meanwhile, Ten Hag revealed that while Maguire will miss the trip to Anfield, his injury is not serious.

“Harry (Maguire) will not be available for coming games, but don’t think he is a long-term (issue).”

Among the other players set to miss the trip to Anfield through injury are Lisandro Martinez, Christian Eriksen, Victor Lindelof and Mason Mount.

Jaden Sancho also remains banished from the first team.

And if the injury list was not stressful enough, ten Hag’s position is thought to be under pressure ahead of the trip to Liverpool.

The Manchester United manager led the club into the history books this week for all the wrong reasons as they set the record for the most goals conceded (15) by a Premier League team in a Champions League group stage.

Their 1-0 loss to Bayern Munich in their final group game piled on the misery, just days after they suffered a first ever loss at Old Trafford to Bournemouth, who put three goals past them.

But ten Hag brushed off concerns that he could be on borrowed time with the Red Devils.

“No, there’s no concern because I’m here to win and I have to make the team play better.

“If you play good – even then, I say good is not good enough – so now we are inconsistent, so I have to work on whether the team is called to play in the moment for longer periods in a high level.”

United fans, the memory of the 7-0 loss to Liverpool is a haunting one, and they fervently hope to avoid a similar humiliation, especially considering the current injury concerns within the team.

The injuries only add to the anxiety, as fans fear a weakened squad might succumb to another demoralizing result.
