Recent displays suggest Erik ten Hag is getting a tune out of his Manchester United squad. The Red Devils are unbeaten in their last six across all competitions, though many of their outings have been nail-biting affairs.
United aren’t struggling to create chances, quite the contrary. The issue lays with their inability to finish them off.
United took 36 shots to score just one goal against Omonia Nicosia in the Europa League two weeks ago.
Marcus Rashford missed a gilt-edged chance to snatch all three points against Newcastle the next match, while they again had to settle for a draw against Chelsea on Saturday despite creating the clearer cut openings.
Rashford has been in the spotlight of late for his profligacy in front of goal. It couldn’t come at a worse time given Ten Hag is adopting a sterner stance towards player contracts and Rashford’s expires next summer.
