Erik ten Hag has revealed the preparation that Manchester United have taken to help benefit four players, in particular, going forward.

The United squad have often been depleted throughout the season so far, with injuries across the board impacting the team.

Ten Hag will be delighted to welcome back the likes of Harry Maguire, Lisandro Martínez, Luke Shaw and Casemiro to full fitness.

All four of them played some part against Newport in the FA Cup win on the weekend. Martínez also appeared from the bench as United drew to Tottenham Hotspur earlier this month.

“Every game we have to see as a final and every game we have to get the best out of it, and this team has so much experience, they know that I’m quite positive now we have our players back,” said Ten Hag in his pre-Wolves press conference.

However, United will be aiming to avoid any reoccurring injuries, like they have experienced throughout the season so far and Ten Hag has explained the approach they have taken with these returning stars.

United faced up against Burnley in a friendly match this month, with those returning from injury and aiming to gain match fitness able to play.

The Dutch boss has explained that it has helped their match rhythm, alongside the FA Cup clash, to be ready to go into the Premier League clash against Wolves.

“Some need match rhythm, but the line into this game is quite good, they had a friendly game, now a cup game and now you go into a Premier League game, the build up is quite good for those players so now we have to make the next step so individuals get back to their best form.”

Ten Hag then addressed the need for his team to build the routines seen last season after being disrupted by absences and line-up changes throughout the campaign so far.

“Clear. We know we have to catch up, first place, players know that, the team will be stronger when you miss players in crucial positions it weakens your stream,” he added.

“Especially when you have to swap every game doesn’t help the routines and we have seen some misunderstandings but now it’s keeping the players fit, second is to get into better form and the third when we get that the results will be better.”
