EPL: Rio Ferdinand reveals Ten Hag’s mistake during 3-2 defeat to Arsenal


Ex-Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand, has said manager Erik ten Hag made a mistake by not introducing Alejandro Garnacho from the bench, as they lost 3-2 to Arsenal on Sunday.

Marcus Rashford gave United the lead, but the visitors were pegged back by goals from Eddie Nketiah and Bukayo Saka.

Lisandro Martinez headed the Red Devils back level, but Nketiah grabbed a deserved 90th-minute winner.

Speaking on his FIVE YouTube show on Sunday, Ferdinand said: “I thought maybe they should have brought on someone like Garnacho with 15 or 20 minutes to go just to give Arsenal something to think about.

“They were all over us, because they knew there was nothing threatening behind late on.

“I thought the Fred substitution was obvious, but I also thought a double substitution then with maybe someone like Garnacho to give us a threat.”

United are now in fourth spot, 11 points behind Arsenal, although they have played one more game.
