What has Ten Hag said?
Speaking ahead of the Bournemouth clash, United boss Ten Hag has provided a fitness update. He said: “We have to see, both [Martinez and McTominay] were training yesterday and today [Saturday], so I am quite optimistic that both can return to the squad. Diogo Dalot as well, he also makes good progress. But we don’t want to take risks with anyone because there are many games to come and we need a good squad to cover all the games.”
What has O’Neil said?
After a disappointing defeat to Crystal Palace, Bournemouth boss Gary O’Neil said: “That’s the first time since I’ve taken charge that we fell well below the standards that we’ve set, and the standards that we need.
“I was really disappointed with nearly all aspects of the day. We looked so flat, and there were so many errors with the ball. Why it looked so flat, why there were so many errors with the ball. A lot of them have missed a lot of training with illnesses. We’ve had a couple coming back with injury who lacked rhythm.
“The squad is not in quite such a good place as it was before the break. We were in a rhythm, we had boys that were used to playing that were training every day. The past few weeks have been a bit messy in that aspect for us but no excuse for sure. My responsibility to make sure it looks much better than that next time we play.”
