Erik ten Hag’s comments on Amad may have revealed his position on another Manchester United forward

Manchester United are doing well and getting better with every passing game under Erik ten Hag but the club must now ensure that continues.

The biggest improvement Ten Hag has implemented so far is at the back. Thanks in large part to the signing of a world-class holding midfielder in Casemiro and the form of Raphael Varane, United have become much more difficult to break down.

United haven’t conceded from open play in the Premier League in the last five games in which Varane has started and they are yet to concede at all since club football restarted after the World Cup. Instead, Ten Hag has a problem going the other way.

Apart from the revived Marcus Rashford, United’s forwards have been goal-shy this season and the tally of 24 is the second lowest in the top ten behind only Chelsea. Newcastle, Fulham, Brighton Brentford and Leicester have all scored more.

Which is what makes January such an important month. With Cristiano Ronaldo departing to see out his career in style in a footballing backwater, Ten Hag has been left with only Rashford and Martial as central attacking options. With Jadon Sancho still unavailable, United’s numbers elsewhere in attack are low too with only Antony, Alejandro Garnacho and Anthony Elanga at the manager’s disposal.
