Earlier this morning, eight KEY Manchester United players who were vital to Manchester United’s success has Left Old Trafford in response to the club’s failure to SACK Eric Ten Hag

When Manchester United last marched into Manchester City territory, they were eager to go again as soon as possible.

United was behind 4-0 before halftime whistle blew by referee Michael Oliver, and blue patches were starting to form in the away end. United was thoroughly defeated by two goals each from Phil Foden and Erling Haaland, who each scored hat-tricks after the break.

A large portion of City’s skill that afternoon came from their right flank, as Foden gave Tyrell Malacia a rough time in the latter’s derby debut. After the break, Luke Shaw took the position of the Dutchman, who has missed the entire season due to injury.

When the two teams play in the most recent installment of this legendary rivalry on Sunday afternoon, Foden is probably going to play on the left wing of City’s front three, but Pep Guardiola will undoubtedly be looking for weaknesses on United’s left side that his team can take advantage of. After all, the Reds are going through a bit of a left-back issue.

Erik ten Hag does not have a natural senior alternative open to him because Shaw and Malacia are out due to injuries. Victor Lindelof started the match against Fulham last weekend, but Sofyan Amrabat played against Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup midweek when Lindelof moved to center-back to cover for Harry Maguire.

The Moroccan will probably be put to the test significantly more by City than he was at Forest, even though he did not do anything really wrong. Although Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s injury makes Ten Hag’s plan to move Diogo Dalot to the left unfeasible, it is still a possibility.

Actually, it seems like Amrabat would have been better served playing defensive midfield with Casemiro and providing as much cover for the back four as possible throughout the trip across Manchester. Rather, the loanee from Fiorentina, who hasn’t featured as much as he’d want to this season, will most likely start at left defence.
