Manchester United have taken the Premier League by storm this season after enduring one of their most difficult starts in modern history.
Erik ten Hag experienced a nightmare start to his tenure at the club, losing both of his first Premier League games, including a disastrous 4-0 defeat to Brentford.
The two opening defeats immediately put him under the microscope but luckily, they were followed up with four consecutive wins, which included victories against Liverpool and Arsenal.
Since then, they have lost just three games and are currently five points behind league leaders Arsenal, with Marcus Rashford in the form of his career after a catastrophic 2021/22 season.
Speaking recently, Rashford has named the win over Liverpool at Old Trafford as the turning point of the season.
“For me, probably Liverpool at home,” Rashford told Stadium Astro when asked what the turning point was, as seen above.
“I think in such a big game, after such poor results, to go and beat them in that stage of the season was massive for us and the fans and it probably helped us connect with the fans a little bit.”
Nearly six months on from that memorable win over Liverpool, United are the only team in Europe still competing in four competitions and they have the chance to secure silverware later this week.
Ten Hag’s men will face Newcastle United at Wembley in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday, just three days after Barcelona are welcomed to Old Trafford.
It’s turning out to be a week of huge importance for the club, with the final at Wembley potentially marking the end of a six-year wait for silverware at the Old Trafford club.
