Cesc Fabregas believes that three Manchester United players have proved that “something is wrong” at Manchester United under Erik ten Hag.

Manchester United‘s second season with Erik ten Hag at the helm has not gone according to plan. After winning the Carabao Cup and finishing third in the Premier League table, many expected the team to kick on.

However, a mix of injuries, poor form, and players’ inability to replicate previous seasons led to the club finishing eighth in the table and out of the Champions League by Christmas, although an FA Cup trophy win over Manchester City helped rescue the mood.

It is hard to pinpoint exactly what caused such a significant drop-off between the two seasons. Some point to injuries and blame the players, while others point to Ten Hag himself, claiming an inability to manage such a squad.

However, former Arsenal midfielder and Premier League winner Cesc Fabregas believes there is something more systematically incorrect at United.

Fabregas has highlighted the poor fortunes of three of United’s current players, Jadon Sancho, Sofyan Amrabat, and Casemiro, as proof that “something is wrong” at United.

“Manchester United will come back because they are a big team, but look at Jadon Sancho. He’s not doing well at United; he goes to Dortmund, and he looks again like the player we all thought he was going to be,” Fabregas told the BBC’s Planet Premier League podcast.

“Look at the midfielder (Amrabat) that impressed for Morocco at the World Cup; he was fantastic. And then he goes to Man United, and he’s not been the same player.

“Casemiro won Champions League after Champions League at Real Madrid. He was the best defensive midfielder in the world, and then he goes to Manchester United and looks like a completely different player.

“Obviously, it makes me think that something is wrong there. It’s not a coincidence that three top, top players come in and they are not good all of a sudden.”
