“It wouldn’t make sense” – Erik ten Hag told to avoid Man United selection vs Brighton



| Last Updated:



Erik ten Hag has been told to avoid making the wrong striker decision as Manchester United face Brighton in the Premier League.

Erik ten Hag‘s squad have had a mixed start to Premier League life this season, having won two games and lost two.

Manchester United‘s two wins against Wolves and Nottingham Forest have been negated by losses to Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal – with much of the problem being pinned on the lack of a consistent striker.

United have started both Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford up front so far this season and finally introduced new signing Ramsus Hojlund to the pitch for 30 minutes against Arsenal.

Former United player Paul Parker, speaking on Højlund, believes that the Dane should start United’s next fixture up front over Martial, against Brighton on Saturday 16 September.

“If he doesn’t start against Brighton, then all fans will want Erik ten Hag fired, and it would almost be justified,” Parker proclaimed to Spilxperten

It wouldn’t make any sense if he starts on the bench. Martial shouldn’t even be on the bench. There must be a youth player who is better who can sit on the bench, and Hojlund can be the first striker.”

“All Manchester United fans are fed up with seeing a player with a lousy attitude, who always sulks and complains, and it’s a blessing that Man United finally has an attacker who plays with enthusiasm.”
