Man United suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday evening.
A goal by Pape Sarr followed by an own goal by Lisandro Martinez gave Spurs all the three points having dominating the Red Devils throughout the match.
Following the defeat, former Man United right-back Gary Neville was concerned about United’s midfield.
“Casemiro looks lost in midfield in these first two matches,” said Neville on Sky Sports. “What’s clear is that Manchester United’s midfield needs bolstering.
MAN UNITED EXPOSED BY SPURS
“Ten Hag wants a number six who can play alongside Casemiro and at the moment the club can’t get players out to be able to fund that.
“If they look at the first two weeks, they have to fund it or there will be big problems. What’s clear is that Ten Hag doesn’t want to revert back to Scott McTominay,” said the former Man United captain.
Erik ten Hag’s team was bullied in the midfield by Spurs and never looked like controlling the game after going 1-0 down.
NEVILLE WORRIED ABOUT UNITED GOING FORWARD
“With Bruno on the right, the midfield looks all over the place and the front three doesn’t capable of functioning as one,” added Neville. “Does he go back to McTominay? Ten Hag has made five substitutions and not used him. It’s almost as if he is managing him out of the club.”
Man United were lucky to beat Wolves in their opener but Ten Hag’s tactics were exposed on Saturday when playing against a better team.
