Manchester United led Arsenal 1-0 when Cristiano Ronaldo entered the game, and despite Bukayo Saka’s equalizer, United went on to win 3-1
Cristiano Ronaldo’s introduction, according to Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag, gave them more attacking freedom as they handed Premier League leaders Arsenal their first loss of the year.
Bukayo Saka tied the score two minutes after Ronaldo entered the game with United leading 1-0.
After six minutes, Marcus Rashford had restored United’s advantage by being sent in by Bruno Fernandes. The academy graduate then scored once more in the 75th minute.
Cristiano Ronaldo, who played as the center forward and had his most productive game of the season, was accommodated by moving Rashford to the left wing.
Ten Hag responded, “It can also do it from the right, you bring in Cristiano Ronaldo as a frontman,” when asked why Rashford was moved.
Marcus played as a nine and from the wing like Christian Eriksen, a pressing game, and he transferred that effectively. However, we expect him to play as a striker, drop in, play over, linking, arriving in the box, and scoring goals.
“I’m really delighted with his performance; it shows his growth and areas for improvement, but he has such wonderful qualities that I’m happy to have him on the team,” the coach said.
For the first time since April 2021, United has won four straight games, and they are now just three points behind the leader in the Premier League. On Thursday, their European tour will begin.
Ten Hag continued, “We must press on.” The season has only begun, so there is plenty of room for growth. We must train hard every day, and everyone must give Carrington their best effort.
“I understand the aspirations of the supporters; Man United’s standards must be high; we’re at the beginning of a process; we’re still a long way away; we must do things far better than we do; that’s an investment,” the manager of Man United said.
“We have to bring those high standards to Carrington every day as a team, and we have to get better if we want to win trophies in the end.” They must be aware that the game is beginning and that we must win each game.
