Erik ten Hag Finally Names Man United Players He Trust Most After 9-Game Winning Streak
Erik ten Hag is not a man who shows his emotions too often. The only time we saw him break free was when Marcus Rashford scored the winning goal against Manchester City.
Since he took over, he’s often stated that Manchester United have plenty of improvements to do both on and off the field.
Now, in his recent press conference, the Dutchman actually praised his squad for their performances amid the nine-game winning streak.
“The way they transferred the plan [against City] in the game, I think was brilliant,” Ten Hag told reporters.
“You see how they are in possession… but also out of possession – the pressing, how we defended the front three of City I think was really good.
“I trust them. They were behind the plan fully 100 percent and they controlled long periods of the game in the first half.”

Erik added: “Teams need experience to build that mentality, that belief that the game is only over when the referee whistles for the last time.
“To stay in the game you have to construct that and you need experiences like [the derby] to improve even more and push it even more to a higher level.”
United return to action against Crystal Palace in the Premier League later this Wednesday. A win would propel us to second place in the table.
