Man United manager Erik ten Hag explains why he didn’t send on Alejandro Garnacho earlier vs Arsenal

Erik ten Hag admits Manchester United still have “limited” attacking options after their first Premier League defeat since November at Arsenal.

Ten Hag decided against an attacking change with United clinging onto a 2-2 draw at Arsenal, whose pressure eventually told as Eddie Nketiah claimed a 90th minute winner.

Alejandro Garnacho has been regularly introduced from the bench by Ten Hag but he was reluctant to adjust United’s line-up after Fred replaced Antony in the 71st minute and only brought him on after Arsenal had scored the winner.

United signed Wout Weghorst on loan from Burnley earlier this month but striker Anthony Martial has missed the last two games with a muscular injury.

“It was the best set-up to win this game,” Ten Hag stressed. “And of course we had some considerations to bring players in, especially Garnacho can have an impact.
