Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag expects his players to stop making unwanted mistakes
The match against the Clarets at Turf Moor will be United’s sixth match in the Premier League this season. The fact that we have won just two is atrocious given the squad at our disposal.
The Red Devils returned from Germany after losing 4-3 to Bayern Munich in their opening Champions League Group A fixture. Ten Hag talked about the importance of players doing their jobs better after the Bayern game.
The thrilling game ended in a loss due to individual mistakes during the critical stages of the game. The United manager took to club media to elaborate on what he meant when he asked players to do better. He said:
“It’s not about one game. We show in every game that we can play very good football, on the highest level, because [we’re] against the very best opponents. But also, we make, in this moment, mistakes and we are losing games and top football is about moments. So, we have to avoid making mistakes because, otherwise, it’s very difficult to win the big games.”
United are currently lying in 13th position after losing three out of five Premier League games they’ve played so far. Ten Hag needs to make a course correction in the club’s form with the game against Burnley being of utmost importance.
We think that Ten Hag’s assessment is spot on because there were many individual errors in the losses that United suffered this season. Burnley is currently lying in the 19th position which gives United a chance to stop the losing streak.
United players have to take responsibility and prove their manager’s faith in them so that the English Giants can recover from the current struggle.

The Red Devils possess an abundance of quality within the squad, and it is imperative that they do not remain entrenched in the lower half of the Premier League. We anticipate that the Burnley game marks the beginning of United’s journey to reverse their fortunes, establish consistency, and emerge as a formidable contender this season.
