Since the appointing of Dutch Coach, Erik Ten Hag, the team of Manchester United has transformed into a force to be reckoned with and possibly Premier League title contenders. With the join second most clean sheets in the Premier League, after Newcastle United, Manchester United are looking at their best season since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson.
With an impressive run of 15 games unbeaten at home, it seems as if Ten Hag is bringing back the reputation of the stadium which is known as the “THEATRE OF DREAMS”. Saturday’s 3-1 victory against championship side Reading took it to 15 games with a loss at the Stretford end with possibly one of the best signings of the 2022/23 season, Casemiro netting a brace and Fred putting the final nail in the coffin.
Casemiro has proved to be the difference maker in the squad and is certainly living to his “Tell them I’ll fix this” quote that he said prior to signing to Manchester United. And also Erik Ten Hag is also living up to the words he said about how the Liverpool vs. Man City era is coming to an end, In an impressive run of home wins against the likes of Liverpool, Manchester City, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, he has silenced all the doubters. With an upcoming second leg Carabao Cup semi-final against Nottingham Forest, one can wonder if he is truly the man who will bring the glory days back to United.
