January 23, Manchester United vs Arsenal is about to start, Ten Hag accepted the media before the game
Ten Hag said: “We have found a way to beat Arsenal, but they are ranked first and they deserve this ranking. Arsenal are really stable and difficult to beat, but we have done it before and we have to perform well.
To do it again, the details will determine the game.”
“We have to be at 100 per cent, stay focused, believe in ourselves, play bravely, play our football and we have to get Arsenal out of their comfort zone.”
When asked if this game would return to the peak years of the two teams in the past, Ten Hag said: “This is great. There was a relationship between the two teams in the past. There were big battles. It was a kind of enjoyment for the fans.
Hope it’s the same today.”
Talking about McTominay’s starting lineup, Ten Hag said: “I think he can fill the vacancy very well. We have arranged a special role for him and hope to succeed, a bit like the last time against Arsenal.”
“We can make adjustments if necessary to get Arsenal out of their comfort zone and adapt to the game, we can use Fred, we know he’s here to help the team, he was fantastic last week, but
For this game we chose McTominay.”
“I have some thoughts in my mind that Fred could play a role similar to what he did against Manchester City last week. In the game, we can make adjustments if we think it is necessary.”
