The turmoil at Manchester United has intensified, triggered by substantial setbacks in recent matches against Manchester City and Newcastle. These defeats have significantly elevated the pressure on manager Erik ten Hag, slightly alleviated by their narrow 1-0 victory against Fulham on Saturday.

In a bid to salvage their Champions League hopes and avert an ignominious group-stage exit, the three-time European champions now face a crucial challenge against FC Copenhagen on Wednesday.

Manchester United had barely scraped past FC Copenhagen with a 1-0 victory at Old Trafford last month, secured by a dramatic last-minute penalty save from goalkeeper Andre Onana.

The weight of heavy losses to key rivals has amplified the scrutiny on ten Hag’s leadership, adding to the mounting challenges that the team is currently grappling with, including injuries, lackluster performances from their star players, and struggles in the recruitment department. The upcoming match against FC Copenhagen holds immense significance as United seeks to regain stability and rekindle their competitive momentum in the prestigious European competition.
