    Champions League fear

    Man Utd are reportedly concerned they could miss out on next season's Champions League amid a poor start to the season.

    The Red Devils are already seven points behind fourth place with qualification important for financial reasons.

    However, they could be helped if the Premier League is awarded a fifth Champions League spot this term.

    Man Utd team news ahead of Newcastle clash

    Man United face Newcastle in Carabao Cup on Wednesday evening in a repeat of last years final.

    However, United are facing dire straits while Newcastle have continued to impress from last season.

    Their 3-0 defeat in the Manchester Derby means the fans will demand a reaction.

    Ten Hag will continue to be without Luke Shaw (muscular) and Tyrell Malacia (knee) while Casemiro and Aaron Wan-Bissaka could return to selection.

    Amad Diallo is back on grass after picking up an injury that kept him out of the first part of the season, but the clash against the Magpies is too soon for him to feature.

  • Exclusive: Man Utd stars baffled by Ten Hag defensive selections and Fernandes decision

    Erik ten Hag is having his tactics questioned by Manchester United’s players for the first time.

    The Dutch boss faces mounting pressure after Sunday’s 3-0 Old Trafford hammering by neighbours Manchester City — the Red Devils’ fifth defeat in ten league games.

    United chief Ten Hag tore into his stars for their ­second-half performance.

    But the players themselves were left dumbfounded by some of the manager’s tactics.

    A few players made their feelings known in the dressing-room inquest.

    They could not understand why centre-back Victor Lindelof was played at left-back — the benched Sergio Reguilon’s specialist position.

  • Exclusive: Ten Hag ordered flops to sit in silence and listen to City celebrations

    Furious Erik ten Hag made his flops suffer in silence after their derby-day mauling.

    The Manchester United boss was raging over the way his team fell apart in the second half as they crashed to a 3-0 home defeat.

    And when the players got back to their Old Trafford dressing room on Sunday, he ordered them to sit and listen to Manchester City’s stars across the other side of the tunnel celebrating.

    He also wanted them to hear away fans still hailing their heroes after totally outclassing United.

    Ten Hag then tore into his troops for their second-half performance.

    The Dutchman had planned to give his players a bonus day off yesterday if they had beaten the Premier League champions.

    Richards blast Fernandes tactic

    Micah Richards has blasted a "staggering" Bruno Fernandes tactic when Manchester United are losing.

    The Portuguese star was on the losing side in the Manchester derby as Man City ran out 3-0 winners at Old Trafford on Sunday.

    The former Man City star claimed Fernandes will run out of position to try and endear himself to the fans when it might not be the most effective use of himself.

    Richards said on The Rest is Football podcast: "Have you noticed what Fernandes does though?

    "When Man United go behind, and he is not having a good game, what he does is he starts running around trying to get the crowd on side.

    "He is running out of position trying to get everyone to believe that he is working really hard for the team, but really he is just playing for himself. It was staggering to see.

    "Then, every decision that goes against United, his arms are up in the air.

    "As a captain, I don't know if the pressure is too much, but it is not quite working out."

    It comes after Roy Keane called on Erik ten Hag to strip him of the captaincy.

    Haaland will feel ‘hard done by’ if Messi wins Ballon d’Or says Yorke

    Man Utd icon Dwight Yorke has claimed Erling Haaland will not be best pleased if he fails to win the Ballon d’Or this year.

    Speaking to Genting Casino, he said: “The World Cup may only be seven games, but it’s seen as the biggest prize in our sport.

    “Winning the treble obviously requires a lot more consistency, but those trophies will always be overshadowed by the World Cup.

    “Erling Haaland will have a great argument, but you can’t argue with what Lionel Messi’s done.

    “Look at what he’s done with Inter Miami – he’s made the sport such a huge deal in America, and nobody has been able to make that kind of impact over there.

    “It’s hard to look beyond Messi for the Ballon d’Or. People said he couldn’t be the greatest ever without a World Cup, and he went and did it.

    “I think he’ll edge it, but Haaland has a right to feel hard done by.”

    Yorke reveals Beckham wedding antics

    Dwight Yorke has lifted the lid on some of the wedding antics at David Beckham's wedding.

    Speaking to, the Man United legend said: "I was on such a high at the time and I can't really explain how I felt during my first season and Beckham's wedding in Dublin. I was having so much fun that it was a blur.

    "I felt like I was having the best time of my life being at all of these major occasions! Beckham's wedding was a great time – I remember dancing into the early hours! I was the last one on the dancefloor, I'll tell you that.

    "David was on the dancefloor for a period of time, but there came a time when the groom has to get whizzed off with his wife. Not that I know, but I assume that's what happens at the end of the night.

    "David left at some point, but when the dancing started and what I'd consider the more boring parts were over, that's when I really start to come alive.

    "You have to do your due diligence and get the formalities out of the way, and once it did, I came into play a bit more and it was all going down."

    'United will never be like Ajax' says Ten Hag

    Erik ten Hag has delivered a damning assessment on his Man United squad, declaring they will never be able to play like Ajax.

    His Ajax side were lauded for their easy-on-the-eye style, but despite fan hopes it seems this style will not be directly implemented into the United team due to the players having different qualities.

    Ten Hag said: "Never. We will never play that football. Because those were different players. This is also not why I came here.

    "We are playing different football than I showed at Ajax because I have to, because I can't play the same way.

    "The players decide how you play. Ajax has a very typical and characteristic style of play, with Manchester United I will always show different football, I did so last year as well.

    "We play much more direct football here because I have the players for that here."

    Neville slams Fernandes

    Gary Neville said Bruno Fernandes tried to “con” Manchester United fans in the closing stages of their defeat against Manchester City yesterday.

    After seeing him attempt a tough tackle on John Stones, the former Red Devil said: “He’s trying to do someone there, Fernandes.

    “He’s trying to do John Stones but he’s seen him coming and he’s ended up hurting himself.”

    Neville added: “He’s conning no one with what he’s been trying to do over the past few minutes.”

    Fernandes has come in for particular criticism after the game, with Roy Keane going so far as suggesting he should be stripped of the captaincy.

    United set home loss record

    Yesterday's home loss to Manchster City means United have now lost as many home games since Sir Alex Ferguson left as he did in his whole United career.

    From 1986 to 2013, Fergie only lost 34 home Premier League games.

    That's now been equalled in just the ten years since he left.
