Man Utd boss Ten Hag told he has rectified Solskjaer's 'two years in the making' mistake

Martinez and Varane impressed against Liverpool in Maguire’s absence, and largely kept Jurgen Klopp’s attack at bay despite Mohamed Salah scoring with a header to reduce their lead in the second half.

Ten Hag explained why he opted to pick those two over his club captain ahead of kick-off on Monday. “You look at the approach to this game, we have a squad, a lot of games to cover, and we thought for this game it was best to make these changes,” Ten Hag told Sky Sports. “It doesn’t mean anything for the future.

“Varane is a really experienced player, he’s won everything in his career and will bring the communication in the back four, but that’s also what Harry does. We want mobility and agility in the back four, so that’s also why we have decided to play with the other three. Liverpool are a great team in and out of possession, you need to press them, and you have to do that out of a block, so you need a lot of energy.”
