Man Utd fans demand Ten Hag makes major change to starting XI against Tottenham after controversially scraping by Wolves | The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED fans have urged Erik ten Hag to start Jadon Sancho against Tottenham on Saturday.

The Red Devils were desperately unimpressive in their Premier League opener on Monday night as they laboured to a 1-0 win over Wolves at Old Trafford.

And it is widely accepted they will need to improve ahead of their trip to North London this weekend.

United legend Gary Neville took aim at the midfield trio of Casemiro, Bruno Fernandes and Mason Mount, considering it to be a major issue Ten Hag needs to address.

But one personnel switch a host of supporters are calling for is the introduction of Sancho into the starting line-up.

The former Borussia Dortmund man, 23, replaced Alejandro Garnacho in the 68th minute.

And fans were excited by Sancho's cameo as they told Ten Hag to move away from the Antony-Marcus Rashford-Garnacho front three that started against Wolves.

One said: "Must start against Spurs! Rashford – Sancho – Antony for me. Could even make an argument for Mount/Pellestri off the right instead."

Another added: "Strong, intelligent, thoughtful. He needs more 90 mins like that and not just cameos."

A third replied: "Came in and added more energy and did hold the ball better today than Garnacho."

And a fourth responded: "Brilliant. Earned himself a start next week. But needs to play with that hunger and desire every game. Get that right and the quality will eventually shine through."

Sancho has struggled since arriving at Old Trafford from Dortmund two years ago.

He has only contributed 12 goals and six assists in 80 appearances for Man Utd.

And his inconsistency has seen him dropped by England manager Gareth Southgate.

But he was superb in a pre-season friendly against Athletic Bilbao on the eve of the Premier League campaign.

Now he will be hoping Ten Hag hands him a start as Man Utd prepare for a stern test against Ange Postecoglou's Spurs on Saturday evening.
