Manchester United currently sit third in the Champions League Group A table, having lost two of their opening three fixtures in the competition against both Bayern Munich and Galatasaray.

It was a disastrous start in the competition for Erik ten Hag. Still, a 1-0 win thanks to a Harry Maguire header and Andrè Onana’s last-minute penalty save against Wednesday’s opposition was the Reds claim their first points in the competition as they look to climb back up and qualify for the knock-out stages.

Casemiro, who was substituted at half-time against Newcastle last week, will be out for “several weeks” with a hamstring issue, with Ten Hag explaining on Tuesday evening that he fears the midfielder will not play again until January.
