Manchester United coach Erik ten Hag explains his reason why Kobbie Mainoo started for Manchester United against Newcastle United EPL match

Erik ten Hag has talked about why he chose the team that Man United will play against Newcastle on Saturday night.

Erik ten Hag has made it clear that Kobbie Mainoo, a young player for Manchester United, is “ready” to play for the first team.

On Wednesday, United and Galatasaray played to a tie. On Saturday night, United will try to get back to winning ways at St. James’ Park. Ten Hag has made four changes to the starting lineup that played in Istanbul.

Luke Shaw has taken Victor Lindelof’s place on the left side of the center of defense, and Sofyan Amrabat has been moved to the bench to make room for Mainoo in the middle.

Rasmus Hojlund and Antony have also lost their starting spots to Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford. Rashford is back on the team after missing the game against Galatasaray because he was suspended.

People talked about Ten Hag’s choice to start Shaw at center back and put Hojlund on the bench before the game, and he spoke to MUTV before the game in the North East.

When asked why Shaw was so important, Ten Hag said, “It’s part of our strategy for this game and also load management for Luke’s point of view.” “The needs are different for a full-back.”

Mainoo, 18, will play against Newcastle’s Lewis Miley, 17, in the middle of the field. Ten Hag said, “It shows how great English football is, with so many young players coming up. It’s good for the academies and lets them know they’re ready to play.”

“The pitch is the same everywhere; it’s 11 vs. 11, and there is a referee, so go ahead and kick off,” he said. We need to do better than we have been lately. We’re going in the right way, and this test is very important.

“We’ve played some really good teams, and Newcastle is another tough one, so we need to do our best.” I want something from my team during transitions and when things get tough.
