Erik ten Hag makes Cristiano Ronaldo and Harry Maguire decision for Europa League clash


On Thursday, Harry Maguire and Cristiano Ronaldo are expected to return to Manchester United‘s starting lineup. Since United’s humiliating 4-0 loss at Brentford on August 13, neither Ronaldo nor captain Maguire have made a start for the team. Since then, United has won four straight games to climb up to fifth in the Premier League, but manager Erik ten Hag is prepared to make adjustments for Real Sociedad’s visit tomorrow in the Europa League.

Along with Victor Lindelof and Luke Shaw, Ronaldo and Maguire will start as Ten Hag switches up his lineup and gives everyone some much-needed game action. In preparation for Sunday’s Premier League match between United and Crystal Palace, Ten Hag wants to rest players like Tyrell Malacia, Raphael Varane, and Lisandro Martinez.

Casemiro, a new £70 million acquisition, is expected to start alongside Antony from Brazil, who made his debut in Sunday’s 3-1 victory over Arsenal. Fred and Anthony Elanga are expected to be recalled. With so many games squeezed into a shorter season due to the World Cup break in November and December, Ten Hag is aware of the value of having a large roster and rotating his troops.

To prevent players from burning out, the United manager has emphasized the importance of a team where everyone contributes. The Dutchman is likely to use different players in the Premier League and Europa League. Given that the match against Arsenal was his first in three weeks following his strike at Ajax to force through his transfer to United, Antony is one player who is sure to keep his spot tomorrow.

Antony said the following about his goal-scoring debut: “To score my first goal and share this moment with the crowd, in such a tremendous environment, was brilliant. “I had chills as soon as I stepped onto the field because I knew how much I wanted to be there and how badly the crowd wanted this. I felt all I had to say when I saw the ball go in and the net tremble. Without a doubt, that gave me goosebumps.
