Erik ten Hag backs duo to come good for Manchester United

Erik ten Hag has praised two of Manchester United’s summer signings.

Manchester United beat Crystal Palace 3-0 in the League Cup on Tuesday night.

Alejandro Garnacho, Casemiro and Anthony Martial all got on the scoresheet to send the Red Devils into the next round.

Following the game, Ten Hag praised Mason Mount and Sofyan Amrabat and backed them to deliver for Manchester United:

“Sofyan is a player who, where the team needs him he will play,” said Ten Hag. “It’s one of the reasons we signed him. Every player has his best position, but he gives a certain dynamic in the game.

“We just started, and the process was a little bit interrupted by the many injuries we had. You see with Mason [Mount], Amrabat — they can contribute to the game and they will do.”

Another new signing, goalkeeper Andre Onana, has come in for stick in recent weeks after a number of high-profile errors in the Premier League and Champions League, but Ten Hag praised the Cameroon international after he kept a clean sheet on Tuesday night:

“He had two fantastic saves. That will help in building his confidence. He has personality.

“It was a good night, definitely. We dominated the game. We had some good attacks, controlled possession, created chances, and scored great goals.”
