BREAKING: MNC 3-1 MUN: Two Decisions Made by Ten Hag That Derailed Man United’s Charge at the Etihad Yesterday

Manchester United suffered a heartbreaking 3-1 defeat to rivals Manchester City yesterday, throwing away a lead and dropping valuable points in the race for a top-four finish. While the Red Devils put in a spirited performance, questions linger around manager Erik ten Hag’s decisions that might have swung the game in their favor.

1. Defending Throughout The Game:

Erik Ten Hag set up to defend and hit City on the break from the first whistle and this resulted in Pep Guardiola’s men having more possession of the ball and clear-cut chances to score.

Defending throughout the game clearly put pressure on them and it made them concede three goals.

2. Wrong Substitution

While the Reds were able to keep the Resilience Manchester City’s side quiet in the opening 45th minutes, the introduction of Antony and Sofyan Amrabat in the second half exposed their backline and led to the Citizen’s third goal, where the latter was disposed in the build-up by Rodri, before Erling Haaland received the pass and scored to make it three for Pep Guardiola’s side.
