Scott McTominay has revealed a change Erik ten Hag has made in his recent Manchester United training sessions after news surrounding player frustration.
Scott McTominay was the hero of the hour, grabbing both goals with one lovely finish and a header at the back post to hand United a deserved victory.
There have been many reports in recent days that claim United players are not happy with the types of training they are going with, with some claiming that the players feel the sessions are too intense, causing injuries.
United have had a monumental injury crisis this season, with 17 players having been unavailable at various points in the campaign either due to injury or off-field problems.
Speaking after the game, McTomiany revealed that in the build-up to the Chelsea game, Ten Hag changed the training routine, focusing on lighter training sessions rather than heavy fitness-based days.
“The way that we approached the game [was key to win against Chelsea],” the Scotsman told Amazon Prime at full time. “A lot of light training sessions to keep energy, to keep fresh and go for the next game as they come thick and fast.
“It is a night that we can be happy with and one that we should build on.”
United now sit back to sixth in the table, just three points behind last season’s league winners, Manchester City, who are fourth in the table.
