Manchester United will host Manchester City in the Manchester derby at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
Erik ten Hag faces off against Pep Guardiola in a fixture that the Red corner ran out as victors last season, with United defeating City 2-1 at Old Trafford – although the cross-town rivals beat them twice last campaign, both at the Etihad and in the FA Cup final.
“We are not consistently in position at the level we can be where we show in games we can be, like Arsenal away and the first 20 minutes at Bayern away,” Ten Hag said of recent performances in his pre-match press conference.
“We should do this on a consistent basis, but pressing we’re quite good, we have the most ball regains from the whole Premier League, the most middle regains in the whole league, our defending and pressing organisation, that is us.
“But we don’t take benefit in the attacking transition moments, we have the ability in our teams to take benefits from it. This is how to grow and progress and the games will become more easy.”
