Manchester United players arrive at Carrington for meeting after Liverpool capitulation

Manchester United’s first team squad are in for a tough session at Carrington.

According to the Manchester Evening News, all of the Manchester United players reported for training by 9am after their humiliating 7-0 defeat by Liverpool.

The report claims that by the time everyone had arrived, Erik ten Hag had already been on site for nearly two hours, while sources add that the players were always scheduled to report for 9am for recovery sessions and a morning training session.

This means Ten Hag has took a different approach to former United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who gave the players a day off the day after losing 5-0 against Liverpool at Old Trafford last season.

A meeting will likely result in Ten Hag demanding an explanation for their second half capitulation.

Speaking to reporters after the match, Ten Hag said (via MEN): “We have to talk about that, I have only given my opinion about it and we will talk about that tomorrow. I know this team will reset and we have to bounce back and we have shown in the past we can.

“I analyse the performance of my team: how’s their approach, how is their character, how’s their mentality, how do they cooperate together, how do they deal with the setbacks? Look at the body language, how they communicate with each other.

“They didn’t cooperate together anymore and they didn’t fulfil their jobs. There are many things that makes me angry but to concede so easily the goals is definitely one of them.”

We would love to be a fly on the wall for today’s meetings! Extra laps for the lads would make for a similar punishment that came after the defeat to Brighton at the beginning of the season.

Back in August, Ten Hag decided to cancel a day off for United players after losing 4-0 against Brighton.

Instead he hauled them into Carrington to continue work on implementing his ideas. Reports suggest the manager joined the team on a 14 kilometre run, as per talkSPORT.

Ten Hag gained respect from his players by suffering alongside them. It will be interesting to hear if he does anything today because we are expecting him to go tough on the group.
