The FA Cup is approaching its yearly pivotal phase, with only 16 teams remaining, including Manchester United led by Erik ten Hag.

“We have to win. And players have to understand this,” Ten Hag said ahead of the tie. “The manager has to understand that. I understand the criticism when we don’t win, that the criticism is coming.

“And so, as I said, some of it’s true, but also many opinions are untrue, and we don’t go into them much. It’s about the truth we have in here. And so it’s our truth that’s important. And how we work together.”
