Ten Hag has lost Man Utd dressing room –Paul Merson


Arsenal legend, Paul Merson has claimed that Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has lost the dressing room.

Merson was speaking on Sky Sports after Newcastle eliminated the Red Devils from the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night.

Miguel Almiron, Lewis Hall and Joe Willock all scored for the Magpies as they recorded a comfortable 3-0 win at Old Trafford.

“Newcastle made eight changes and United have been beaten 3-0.

“I personally think the manager has lost the players. There’s ways of losing football matches, and everyone loses matches, but they were completely beaten tonight after going 1-0 down as they were last week [against Manchester City],” Merson said.

Ten Hag is now under immense pressure at United, after watching his team slump to an eighth defeat in all competitions.

It was also the second 3-0 reverse at home in four days following Sunday’s loss to Manchester City.
