Erik ten Hag issues latest on THREE Man United injuries after Chelsea loss



| Last Updated:


Manchester United suffered one of the most ridiculous losses in the Premier League as two goals from Cole Palmer in extra time saw a 4-3 win for Chelsea.

Goals from Alejandro Garnacho and Bruno Fernandes were almost enough before the dramatic goals from Cole Palmer in the 90+10 and 90+11th minutes handed all three points to Chelsea.

Another downside to the loss is Erik ten Hag had to substitute both Raphaël Varane and Jonny Evans due to injury.

This leaves Harry Maguire as the only fit first-choice centre-back at the club, with Lisandro Martínez and Victor Lindelöf out for the next month. Ten Hag also hinted that Casemiro might have a problem, explaining that he “had” to take the Brazilian off.

“That doesn’t help in such moments if you have to manage the game, [it helps] that there are leaders on the pitch,” Ten Hag explained in his post-match press conference.

“Also, Casemiro, we have to take off. That doesn’t help. They know how to deal [with pressure] and how to bring the win over the line.

“I can’t tell now what it is in prospect of Sunday but we have to take them both off.”

United will next face Liverpool in the Premier League as they aim to derail the Merseyside team’s title prospects against Arsenal and Manchester City.
