Explain Ten Hag’s plan.

Manchester United manager Eric ten Hag began by installing a 4-2-4-0 system, adding two more midfielders, making a total of four.

4 are McTominay and Bruno Fernandes, with Marcus Rashford as the left winger and Alejandro Carnacho as the right winger.

Standing style during the game: Can stand 4-4-2 or 4-6-0 or 6-4-0.

4-4-2 means using two midfielders Mainu and Casemiro, two wingers ‘Garna’ and ‘Rachie’, while McTominay and Bruno act as forwards. Both are deceivers.

Simply put, Ten Hag doesn’t have a central striker because they use Rashford as a wide receiver.

The plan is to buy into the defense, emphasize discipline, stand rough, defend tightly, and then rely on quick counter-attacks – pass the ball to Bruno. Who plays the role of ”False 9”, with the Red Devils captain placing long balls or penetrating through the gaps. To free space for Rashford or Carnacho to allow one of them to use their speed to attack behind the home team.

Defensively, they tried to close down the central area. Close half space and defending narrowly. It forces Man City to attack along the flanks rather than attacking in the middle.


They are only half as good. They looked sluggish in the second half on defense. Because a lot of energy is spent playing defense. and began to open space for City players to penetrate inside before they hit 3 goals in the second half

Add to that the fact that Eric ten Hag sent Willy Kambwala (coming on to play right back) and Antoni (right wing) coming on in the 69th and 75th minutes respectively, it became even more of a target. City players. Report from ยูฟ่าเบท
