Erik ten Hag’s performance at Manchester United continues to stand out. Thanks to a 3-0 victory over Charlton Athletic in the League Cup tournament, the Dutchman is the fastest of all Manchester United managers with twenty wins to his name. After the starts free bets on this outcome would’ve paid a lot of money. The victory also brought United into the semi-finals of the English cup tournament and with that the first silverware beckons for Ten Hag. “We had to reach the semi-finals and we did,” was Ten Hag’s sober analysis last night.
Erik ten Hag record
Of course, The Red Devils were obliged to play Charlton Athletic – of the third level in England – at home. to push aside, but the 3-0 win with a B team was yet another confirmation of the form Manchester United are in. They won eight times in a row, of the last twelve games no less than eleven were won and Ten Hag is also now the manager to record the fastest 20 wins at Manchester United, beating Sir Alex Ferguson’s record. “We could have finished it earlier, but I have to compliment my team,” said Ten Hag after the duel with Charlton Athletic.
“I was happy in the first half hour, but I was less happy with the missed opportunities “We really have to be more effective in front of goal. Now we had to keep fighting until the end, even though they didn’t really create any chances. This is now the third 3-0 win after the World Cup and we keep improving ourselves.”
Ready for the derby?
It is clear: Manchester United seems ready for Saturday’s derby against Manchester City (1.30 pm), as was also seen at Sky Sports. “Manchester United fans will have circled their calendars on Saturday as the revival under Ten Hag is accelerating. It may be premature, also because Manchester City are still in the League Cup tournament, but you could just put a bet on Manchester United’s League Cup win.”
According to the same medium, Ten Hag is the reason for the revival of The Red Devils: ,,Eight victories in a row, nine victories in a row at Old Trafford, the team unexpectedly participates in the title race and Manchester United is also still active in three cup competitions. (League Cup, FA Cup, Europa League, ed.). Ten Hag won six prizes with Ajax and winning the League Cup in his debut season would be an achievement that should not be underestimated.
Pep Guardiola also started at Manchester City with a win of the League Cup and look what he won afterwards. Silverware at Wembley would crown the impressive progress with a 74 per cent win rate, better than Guardiola’s win rate after the same number of games (27) at Manchester City. There is still a long way to go, but Ten Hag’s no-nonsense approach seems to be the method to end the trophy drought that has lasted for six years at Old Trafford.”
