Ten Hag selects team for Chelsea clash

Wednesday 06 December 2023 19:15

Erik ten Hag has selected his Manchester United team to take on Chelsea in the Premier League.

The sides kick off at Old Trafford at 20:15 GMT, with the match being streamed live on Amazon Prime.

After the disappointing performance, and 1-0 defeat at Newcastle United, the boss will be demanding an improved display under the lights in M16, as we look to get back on track in a push for the UEFA Champions League slots.

"We played bad as a team," he told Amazon Prime. "We can't blame individuals for it. It is about rotation. We have a very good energised frontline and everyone has to be ready and we do it as a team and as a group."
