Manchester United Manager Erik ten Hag in tears during pre match press conference today as Key player who’s suppose to be the main man for Man U game Sustained a career ending injury in training – another big injury setback for ETH as player set to be out till next year

The Manchester United locker room is turning on Erik ten Hag, and he has three games left to save his job.

Ahead of a vital stretch of games, it has been revealed that numerous players have lost faith in Ten Hag’s management following Saturday’s lacklustre 1-0 loss away to Newcastle. The Red Devils will host Chelsea under Mauricio Pochettino on Wednesday at Old Trafford, followed on Saturday by a home Premier League game against a highly competitive Bournemouth team.

Then, United faces a daunting Champions League match against Bayern Munich, who have already qualified. However, even a victory at Old Trafford on Tuesday may not be enough to advance United to the next round. Arsenal veteran Paul Merson has predicted that Ten Hag won’t be in control when the Red Devils visit to Anfield on Sunday, December 17 to play archrivals Liverpool, should Ten Hag’s nightmare continue and they wind up losing all three of those games.

In his Sportskeeda predictions column, Merson stated, “I don’t see how Ten Hag keeps his job if they lose to Chelsea, Bournemouth, and Bayern.” “They should succeed against Bayern Munich, who have already advanced to the Round of 16, and I do believe they will defeat Bournemouth.

“Man United is everywhere, and Chelsea hasn’t played very well on defence. They could have given up eleven against Newcastle and gave up three goals against Galatasaray.”

The former Arsenal midfielder called United’s defeat against Newcastle one of the most “one-sided matches he’s ever seen” and predicted a 3-3 draw for Wednesday’s matchup with Chelsea. It’s difficult to disagree with his assessment. “It seemed embarrassing to me,” Merson continued. “I was shocked by the way United played and the lack of effort they put in.”

After losing 10 of their 21 games this season across all competitions, Ten Hag, who will speak to the media on Tuesday before the Chelsea encounter, is adamant that his squad will turn things around. “We need to correct this,” the Red Devils’ manager stated on Saturday.

“I am aware of our resiliency. That is something we can accomplish. We need to get back to a strong run in the Premier League since we had a terrific run after losing to [Manchester] City a few weeks ago.”
