Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has blamed injuries for his team’s struggles this season after yet another defeat.
The Red Devils succumbed to a 2-0 defeat to West Ham United on Saturday at the London Stadium with Jarrod Bowen and Mohammed Kudus scoring the goals.
The loss sees United slip to eighth on the league table after 18 round of games played with 11 points off the top spot.
Ten Hag’s side is currently without some first-team players such as Casemiro, Lisandro Martinez, Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof while Christian Eriksen only made his first appearance in over six weeks in the game against the Hammers.
Speaking after the game, the Dutchman asked for calm as he looks forward to a better year.
“At Man United, everybody has to take responsibility. We have to be calm, stick together, stick to the plan, we have to do it together,” he said.
“In 2023 we won a Cup and we did very well. Now we are underperforming.
“We have many injuries, so the team will be better.”
United are winless in their last four games.
