Erik ten Hag has stated that he feels Manchester United will be much stronger once his players return from injury in January.

Manchester United currently have three players who are out injured and are not expected to return until mid-January in the forms of Mason Mount, Casemiro, and Lisandro Martínez.

All three have been part of Erik ten Hag‘s monumental injury crisis at Old Trafford this season, with the squad suffering as a result.

There have been many rumours flying around about who United may be looking to bring in during the January transfer window, but with Ten Hag confirming that the trio will be available again from mid-January, he feels he is happy with his current squad.

Speaking on Friday afternoon, Ten Hag was asked if he would like to strengthen his squad and if he had the money to do so.

“So, the current squad, I’m happy,” he replied. “As we get our players back, I’m sure we have a good squad.

“I think a lot of our [form], the way it went in the first half of the season, this was a reason behind [it] because many players were not available, and I’m sure when all the players are available, on board.

“It looks like Casemiro will be back, Martínez will be back, Mason Mount will be back. We will be much stronger after the winter.” 

Manchester United face West Ham on Saturday afternoon as they look to climb up from seventh in the league table.
