Manchester United confirm Erik ten Hag’s XI to face Bournemouth (Premier League)



| Last Updated:


Manchester United have confirmed the XI that Erik ten Hag will field as the club travels to face Bournemouth in the Premier League on Saturday evening.

Manchester United, led by Erik ten Hag, have struggled in their last three Premier League encounters against BrentfordChelsea, and Liverpool, earning just two points out of a potential nine despite initially holding advantageous positions.

This downturn has left them trailing far behind their rivals in the pursuit of Champions League berths. Their remaining chance for glory rests on the FA Cup, where they are set to face Coventry City in the semi-finals, with the possibility of a final showdown against either Chelsea or Manchester City.

However, their most immediate challenge is Bournemouth, who defeated the Reds 3-0 at Old Trafford earlier this season.

“It was after a very good performance against Chelsea in the week. We were mentally not ready for that game,” Ten Hag said on Friday about the loss.

“They battled us and we lost the battles. Tomorrow will not be different, that is the way they want to play. They want to fight with you. So you go into that fight, have the conviction, the belief and you need to support each other to win battles, to outplay them, outrun them and defending to match the runs.”

The XIs for the tie have been confirmed.
