(Video) Erik Ten Hag confirms important tactical plan for Barcelona

Erik Ten Hag is buzzing for tonight’s Europa League second-leg knockout tie against Barcelona.

The Dutchman has been busy preparing the Red Devils for tonight’s hugely important game, which is finely poised after last week’s first leg at the Nou Camp ended in a 2-2 draw.

Marcus Rashford was the star of the show last week after the Englishman netted a vital equalising goal just two minutes after Marcos Alonso fired the Catalan giants into the lead. Attacking midfielder and captain Bruno Fernandes also played an important role and both players are set to start again tonight.

And speaking about the duo, and what he is expecting from them, Ten Hag, who spoke to BT Sport before kick-off, confirmed that he has instructed Rashford and Fernandes to rotate and play a fluid style of attacking football.

“Definitely, we will again make that rotation [between Rashford and Fernandes],” the Dutchman said.

“We have to see what they’re doing. Normally, Barcelona are really proactive – high defending line so then they give a lot of space away in the back of the defending line.

“As you know, we are good in it [the space], but we have to explore those spaces but therefore you have to invest and you have to make you runs.”
