Manchester United will face Aston Villa in the third round of the Carabao Cup at Old Trafford in their next game.
The Villains recently defeated the Red Devils 3-1 in their final meeting of the weekend. Despite his painful defeat against Aston Villa. The Manchester United players managed to hold their own on the pitch. However, this was not the case against Newcastle United and Chelsea.
The Football Association has fined the Red Devils for misconduct on the pitch in two recent English Premier League games against Newcastle United and Chelsea.
In other news, Manchester United manager Erik ten hag has been given permission to sign another right-back on one condition. We at the Twelfth man Times take a look at two of the biggest stories to come out of the red side of Manchester.
Manchester United fined
English Premier League giants Manchester United have been fined £82,000 by the Football Association for breaking the rules in two recent games against Chelsea and Newcastle United.
The Manchester United players were guilty of misbehaving in both games. Early on, they surrounded the referee after a heated moment between Callum Wilson and Lisandro Martinez.
The Red Devils then repeated the same thing in their match against Chelsea when the referee decided to award a penalty to Scott McTominay. Although United managed to draw both games, this is not something we expect from professional players day in and day out.
Now, the good thing is that despite a painful loss to Aston Villa, this pattern was not seen in the match. So it seems that this problem is over for them.
Erik Ten Hag Move cleared for a new right back
Since joining Manchester United, Erik ten Hag has made quite a few big decisions. He benched United’s starting right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka and gave Diogo Dalot a chance. Dalot established himself as a starter and ten Hag wanted another right back instead of Wan-Bissaka.
The Red Devils board decided to keep the former Crystal Palace man and give him a second chance. However, Wan-Bissaka has failed to impress ten Hag at all. The 24-year-old has appeared in only one match so far.
Wan Bissaka also suffered quite a few injuries during training. This kept him sidelined for weeks. Now, according to the Daily Telegraph, the United board has given Erik ten Hag the green light to sign another right-back.
Before that though, ten Hag will have to get rid of Old Trafford’s Aaron wan Bissaka.
