Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag stated on Tuesday that his group have an excellent alternative to win their first trophy since 2017, as they put together for the primary leg of the Carabao Cup semifinal towards Nottingham Forest.
United have been criticised by their supporters for the membership’s trophy drought, with the group’s Europa League and Carabao Cup titles received in 2017 their most up-to-date items of silverware.
United have improved underneath Ten Hag and are the one English group to stay in competition in 4 competitions this season — Premier League, Carabao Cup, FA Cup and Europa League.
“It’s about that, it’s about winning trophies,” Ten Hag stated at a information convention on Tuesday. “We have a good opportunity but you have to go from game to game.
“Now we play Forest in two legs, we concentrate on the primary leg. Do not assume additional forward as it’ll solely distract.”
Ten Hag said United have moved on from their 3-2 defeat to league leaders Arsenal on Sunday and his players are fully focused on facing Forest, who are 13th in the Premier League table, nine spots below United.
The Dutchman added that Diogo Dalot, Jadon Sancho and Anthony Martial will stay unavailable for the sport, however Casemiro could be out there once more after serving a one-match ban within the league.
The second leg might be performed at Outdated Trafford on Feb. 1.
