To prevent an Arsenal comeback, United must make a player sacrifice.

Erik ten Hag would need to make a difficult decision after the break because Man United led Arsenal for less than a minute on Sunday.
During the loss to Arsenal, Manchester United got a taste of what Christian Eriksen is capable of.


The Dane’s interception and ensuing defense-splitting ball for Marcus Rashford served as an illustration of how he managed to have success in the Premier League. We quickly learned, though, why keeping him in the side might not be viable.
Right after the restart, the Gunners caught the Reds off guard, and Eriksen was powerless to stop Martin Odegaard from scoring an equalizer. Erik ten Hag was once more made aware of the fact that you cannot start Mason Mount, Bruno Fernandes, and Eriksen in a midfield three.
One of the top defensive midfielders available, Sofyan Amrabat, might stabilize the middle of the park. One of the two players must be sacrificed in order to accomplish this.

The fan base’s preferred course of action would be to have Antony withdraw, shift Fernandes to the right wing, where he previously played for Ten Hag, and then move Eriksen into a more offensive midfield role. Amrabat would be able to settle in next to Casemiro and establish a strong base in front of the defense as a result.
However, a clean exchange where Eriksen is replaced by the Moroccan seems more feasible given Ten Hag’s obsession with Antony. However, Eriksen deserves all the praise for his improvement in performance following a dry stretch in preseason.

But United needs to figure out a method to stop scoring goals like the first one they gave up to Arsenal. Who knows what would have occurred at the Emirates if they had persisted a little longer after moving forward.
