Despite Spurs having just experienced a terrible defeat in the last round, coach Erik ten Hag is still very cautious before encountering this opponent.
Last weekend, Tottenham lost to Newcastle with a score of 1-6 and fell far from the top 4 competitive position. They will continue to face another strong opponent, Man United, in the midweek round of this week. With the recent embarrassing defeat, the Rooster even had to apologize and refund the ticket money to the fans who came to watch.
However, according to coach Erik ten Hag, this is not an advantage for Man United. The Dutch strategist shared: “Obviously they went through a heavy defeat and are going crazy. They’ll do whatever it takes to get back, but we just want to talk about ourselves. No opponent will be more hungry to win than we are, and that’s how United prepare for every game.”
In the last FA Cup semi-final, the Red Devils suffered a loss when Bruno Fernandes was injured and had to wear crutches to protect his feet. Sharing about the situation of the Portuguese midfielder, coach Ten Hag said: “We will monitor his condition and do not know anything yet. Usually, players wear crutches to protect their feet as a precaution. We’ll see if he can come back.”
The match between Tottenham and Man United will take place at 02:15 am on April 28. Currently, Tottenham are 6 points behind the Red Devils and have played 2 more matches.
