Man Utd’s Erik ten Hag Eyes Amad Diallo and Raphael Varane’s Return for Villa Clash
The return of Amad Diallo and defender Raphael Varane gives Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag reason to be positive ahead of their Boxing Day match against Aston Villa. The squad is hoping to recover from their recent losses and host Villa in their next match, so this update comes at the right time.
The teenage forward Amad Diallo has missed time with a knee injury that he sustained during preseason. On the other hand, he is now in contention to start against Unai Emery’s squad after weeks of recuperation and working with the squad since early December. Raphael Varane, who was unwell and missed the disappointing loss to West Ham, is likewise expected to return.
We are hoping for Rapha Varane’s return, and potentially Amad Diallo might join in,” Ten Hag told the press in a news conference. Diallo is among the hopefuls for a return; they’ve been training for a few weeks.
There is still no clear schedule for Anthony Martial’s return, despite these possible returns, because he is still fighting an illness. Ten Hag said of Martial’s future with United, “He’s still unwell.” We are not planning to sell him in January at this time, but we will keep you posted on any transfer rumors as they develop.
Manchester United’s remarkable record on Boxing Day is an intriguing fact. With 53 wins, the Red Devils have more league victories on December 26 than any other English team.
Ten Hag, in anticipation of the Aston Villa encounter, is wary of the danger offered by Emery’s squad, which is presently on a hot streak in the league. Ten Hag stressed the significance of making the most of opportunities that are presented to you in order to maximize efficiency. Villa is a dangerous opponent when she’s performing well. We need to be just as aggressive, and we need to seize opportunities when they present themselves. He made the observation that it is crucial for winning games.
Manchester United will need to win their next match if they want to keep their winning streak going and survive in the Premier League.
