Journalist Samuel Luckhurst was not satisfied with the Reds’ play in the second half, besides the poor performance of the substitutes.
Man United face a fierce schedule at this stage. The invisible density of playing ball erodes the strength of the stars. That we can see in the 2-2 draw between Man United and Tottenham Hotspur.
Erik ten Hag’s army had an impressive performance during the first 45 minutes. The Red Devils took a 2-0 lead after the first half. Entering the second half, the game reversed quickly. The constant pressure from Tottenham made the Man United defense make mistakes.
As a result, Pedro Porro and Son Heung-min tore the net of David de Gea in turn, setting the final result 2-2. The condition of the Man United players went down quickly in the second half of the second half. Besides, Ten Hag’s personnel changes did not work.
Journalist Samuel Luckhurst discussed on his personal Twitter page: “The personnel changes seem to have disrupted the game of Man United. Eriksen leaving the field is really a pity. Meanwhile, Rashford played excellently in a high position. The best in attack. Basically, Martial is not fast enough.”
“Man United threw away most of the second half. Bad start alongside worse substitutions. Surprisingly Tottenham took so long to equalise.”
In the second half, Ten Hag withdrew Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Eriksen, Jadon Sancho and Antony to rest. Unfortunately, the factors that entered the field like Fred or Tyrell Malacia were all underpowered.
