Erik ten Hag tells Manchester United what they must do to beat Arsenal

Manchester United play Arsenal in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon and Erik ten Hag has told his players they need to find a way to win, regardless of style.


Manchester United head into the Arsenal game having bounced back from their early-season disappointments.

Following their 4-0 hammering at the hands of Brentford, Manchester United have since beaten Liverpool, Southampton and most recently, Leicester City.

United also look a much more solid unit at the back now Lisandro Martinez and Harry Maguire are their main centre-back pairing.

And after becoming on for a second time on Thursday, it is expected we will see Casemiro handed his first start of the season vs Arsenal.

Now, ahead of the game, Erik ten Hag has sent a message to his players, urging them to find a way to win regardless of style:

“It’s great and a real pleasure to face this,” he told United’s in-house media. “Every game is a challenge and that’s what I want, but it’s not about me. It’s about improving the team and working on progressing.

“Yes I watch them [Premier League games] and my focus is especially on the upcoming opponents so this week I watched a lot of Arsenal.

“There are a lot of different types of play in this league and that’s nice to see. It’s all high intensity but the systems and styles are different, and they vary which is nice to see. But it’s also about finding a way to win against them.

“What we see in this moment is that they [Arsenal] are on top because they deserve it. They’re playing good football and we are really looking forward to facing them to find a way to win.”
