Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has called for his players to be more clinical in front of all ahead of the 2023/24 season.

The Premier League side played Olympique Lyon in their second pre-season game on Wednesday afternoon, recording a 1-0 win.

It was the second game running also that Man United have relied on their second-half performance to win a game this pre-season.

The Red Devils have lacked sharpness in front of goal, something Ten Hag believes was part if their weaknesses last season.

“So, first half, how we started, three massive chances from the start but that is straight the criticism, you have to score, you have to net. That was already our problem last year and we have to realise that, we have to be more ruthless and clinical in those situations,” he told the club’s media.

“But we create them and from good pressing and good turnovers, so I’m happy with that. I think in the first half, it was a really competitive game and, in the second half, we totally dominated the game by being in their half, staying in their half and, like you said, there were some young lads who made very good impressions.”

United will play Arsenal in the United States of America on July 22 in their third game as part of their preparations for the new season.
