Manchester United will challenge Crystal Palace away.
Before the game, Manchester United coach ten Hag attended the press conference.
Was Martial injured when he was replaced in the last game?
I was trying to prevent him from being injured, he told us that he was not feeling well, and that’s why he didn’t participate in training this week, and it’s also why there are doubts about his ability to play in the next game.
We made a decision and he made a decision.
(against Manchester City) he asked to start the game, I know that in this game, the start is very important, and he is really good at pressing, he is an important element in our pressing tactics, and he was at half-time.
Very well done before.
But, as you’ve seen, he can’t play 100 percent and that’s what we need.
We took him off to avoid him getting injured, but that also had an impact on our game and it had a negative impact after half-time.
If Martial is unable to play, will new aid Verhorst start against Crystal Palace?
Or is it too early to talk about it?
Oh, I need to think about this matter, first of all, we need to stabilize from the last game, make the right conclusion, and then we will make a clear plan.
I have to watch this team (Crystal Palace) play, of course, I already know a lot about them, we played against Crystal Palace in pre-season (Manchester United won 3-1), I know them
What a team.
But at the moment I don’t have all the plans, I didn’t finish building until this moment, so from this moment, we can build the team in the right way and prepare.
After the Manchester derby win, do you let the players celebrate it or do you let them forget about the game and move on?
Every win you have to celebrate, the players work so hard for the momentum, in top football every win is great and worth celebrating, if you don’t celebrate it kills the ball
The energy of the team, so we have to celebrate.
But after the celebration, after 24 hours, we have to calm down and move on, get into the next game and then you get into the right rhythm.
Every three days, we have an intense game, so the players have to get into the right rhythm physically, but also mentally prepare for the next game, which is Wednesday against Crystal Palace.
In the game against Manchester City, B Fee was selected as the man of the game selected by Sky Sports. What do you think can be brought by letting him appear on the right?
My thought at the time was to put B Fee on the right winger, he can defend as usual, but when we have the ball, he can make a difference, he can add an extra player between our two lines
, make the opponent feel hesitant and confused, cause some trouble, hesitation and problems, and bring us some opportunities.
I think he played his role very well, both on the right and left.
The nice thing is that other guys have adapted really well and I think we’ve made a big breakthrough by finding a free man.
Bruno was instrumental in this role, also highly efficient and important in putting pressure on the opposition.
He was named the best player by the media?
I don’t know, but he’s the best player in the game in my mind.
