Heartbreaking news for Ten Hag as yet another important United star joins the injury listin today’s training session.

Wednesday marked Manchester United’s return to winning ways in the Premier League with a resounding 2-1 victory at Old Trafford over Chelsea.The outcome contradicts the team’s actual performance, as the xG post-match significantly more accurately reflects United’s superior offensive prowess against the struggling visitors.

Their next test is at home against Bournemouth, which appears to be a less difficult opponent, but manager Erik ten Hag emphasized the Cherries’ competitive nature during the pre-match press conference.

 

The high-flying Cherries will test the strength of the defense. Andoni Iraola’s squad has won three of their last four games, including convincing victories at the hands of Newcastle United and Crystal Palace.

 

This season, they have scored against Manchester City and Liverpool, demonstrating their prowess in the penalty area; therefore, Manchester United’s defense will have to exert considerable effort on Saturday in order to secure three points.

 

Notwithstanding the commendable exhibition against the Blues, the Red Devils failed to establish a compact assemblage at the back, a recurring occurrence this season primarily attributable to the defensive unit’s dynamic nature.Ten Hag has been unable to select a consistent back four this season due to injuries and weak form; the same will be true for the match against the Cherries.

 

According to the official United website, Victor Lindelof, who was substituted at halftime in the match against Chelsea, has sustained an unspecified injury and will miss the match.

 

This season, the Swede has appeared in every match as a starter, 14 times across all competitions. The magnitude of the potential failure is yet to be determined.

“However, Ten Hag has lost the services of Victor Lindelof, who is ruled out against the opposition on Saturday. Wednesday at halftime, our number two exited the field and was substituted for Sergio Reguilon; Luke Shaw moved inside to center-back.

 

The return of Raphael Varane, who was absent from the Chelsea match due to a back injury, is encouraging news; he was observed in training. Additionally, Jonny Evans returned as a late substitute for Mauricio Pochettino’s squad.

 

It will be intriguing to see whether the manager adds either of them to the lineup or continues to pair Luke Shaw and Harry Maguire in the starting lineup.

 

As a center-back, the full-back has distinguished himself with passing ability comparable to that of Lisandro Martinez. The defensive prowess of Sergio Reguilon may prove advantageous in the face of the compact Cherries.
