Manager Erik ten Hag has mentioned Mason Mount as a possible solution for Manchester United’s troublesome right side.
Mount was purchased by United from Chelsea for £60 million, but he has been out for five weeks with a muscle ιnjury he suffered in his second game for the club.
Mount, 24, has been practicing with the club again and could play in Saturday’s Premier League road game against Burnley.
Facundo Pellistri earned his second United start in two years in Wednesday’s loss to Bayern Munich. Jadon Sancho has been exiled from the first team squad pending the conclusion of a disciplinary matter. Amad is rehabilitating from a knee condition.
Mount was a star on the right side of a front three for Chelsea, but he was brought in by United to play in the middle of the field. Mount could go to the right side of the field now that £86.3m Antony is out for the season and Sofyan Amrabat, a midfielder, is getting closer to full fitness.
“Also this has been discussed before,” Ten Hag said of a probable switch in Mount’s position, “but we have options on the right and we will see how we fill it in.”
We have choices, but you need them to be accessible, and you need time to establish habits. However, the rules and ideas involved are unambiguous.
Just like Arsenal tied the score 35 seconds into the second half after United’s Marcus Rashford put them ahead last month, Bayern Munich scored within four minutes of United’s first and second goals on Wednesday night.
Even said, Ten Hag conceded United are “not always that good” when facing clubs that аttаck in a methodical fashion.
Not worried, but mindful, he stated of the quick goal surrender. We train the players and the squad to keep an open mind and not shut out the reality of situations like this.
We are really good when you take into account our goals against and defensive transition statistics. However, our performance drops significantly when the enemy has a head start in a well-organized bаttle.
The problem with always explaining why anything happened was that it turned into an excuse. That’s why I’d rather not bring it up.
All I have to do now is coach my team and give them my thoughts. I need to make them aware of these findings and provide them possible remedies.
