Man United played a closed door friendly just before the start of the international break. The team decided to play a friendly due to a break in club football and many of the players to be dropped from international duty. Man United faced Hull City in the friendly which featured many first team players from the United squad. Erik Ten Hag looks to assess the performance of his players before the season resumes. Reports indicated that many big players, including Van de Beek and Anthony, were set to feature in the game.
Many United players stay behind at Carington
Sergio Reguilon, Alejandro Garnacho, Mason Mount, and Casemiro are few of the many players who were not selected for their national teams. Casemiro however, picked up an injury during his international duty for Brazil. Varane, Mount, Anthony are the few players who have been poor in terms of their individual performances. These players hope to improve their form in the coming matches. Ten Hag has been critical of his team and hopes to evaluate the roles of his once star signings. Rio Ferdinand earlier criticized Anthony for his performance against Fulham. He said,
“He’s played 11 games this season and managed zero goals and zero assists – from an attacking player, that’s not good enough, that’s the hard fact.”
As for Van de Beek, he hasn’t played a single minute of competitive football for Man United. Making the Dutchman’s chances for redemption even more slim. Reports from The Daily Telegraph’s Mike McGrath, Anthony and Van de Beek were to feature for the friendly against the EFL Championship side.
