Two goals and an assist for Bruno Fernandes in the second half ensured that United gathered all three points, moving them up into sixth in the league table.

The win over Sheffield was only the club’s second win in their last eight league games, and Ten Hag banned three papers from asking questions ahead of his pre-match press conference.

MailOnline as reported that Ten Hag refused to answer questions from The Sun, Manchester Evening News, and The Mirror – but he did answer one question surrounding Marcus Rashford’s recent social media activity.

In the early hours of Friday morning, Marcus Rashford posted the below message on social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter.

Speaking on Friday afternoon, Ten Hag said: “I have a lot of sympathy for Rashy, of course. Last year, he had a brilliant season. I think the best season in his career, he scored 30 goals.

“This season, he didn’t give the performances and people have been very critical. We have to back him, and everyone should back him to get back to the levels of last year.”

He continued: “I think he needs the support. We all know what he’s capable of, we all have to support and push him. He can do better than this year. We saw last year when he was really brilliant.”
