Manchester United will face Nottingham Forest in the first leg of the English Football League Cup (EFL Cup) semifinals in the 2022-23 season, which will be held at the City Ground in Nottingham, England on the 26th at 5:00 am (hereinafter referred to as Korean time).
On the 24th, two days before the game, coach Ten Haag attended a pre-press conference. First, coach Ten Hagh opened his mouth about the defeat against Arsenal last time. He focused on the upcoming match against Nottingham, saying, “We left the loss against Arsenal behind. It’s a big game (against Nottingham), so we have to move forward and focus on that.”
There was also criticism about Arsenal’s three runs. “We did well in a lot of games. We kept a lot of clean sheets, I think we played a good defense against Manchester City. We defended well against Arsenal too. But if you concede three or more goals in your best game, it’s hard to win. We have to learn this lesson,” he continued the interview skillfully.
He revealed that a total of three first-team players would not be able to play. “Diogo Dalot, Anthony Martial and Jadon Sancho are unavailable,” Ten Hag said. Sancho was once again left out of the roster. Sancho left the team last month and devoted himself to individual training alone. After that, he returned after 3 weeks, and was known to have participated in team training on the 20th. But he still doesn’t appear to have reached match fit.
In the end, Sancho’s return match was postponed. Manchester United has a schedule for the 4th round of the English FA Cup with Reading scheduled on the 29th, and is expected to return through two matches as it will face Nottingham in the second leg on the 2nd of next month.
Manchester United’s goal is to win. If they beat Nottingham in the semi-finals, they will play the final against the winners of Newcastle United and Southampton. “We have a good chance to win the title, but we have to keep playing. We have two games against Nottingham. We have to focus on the first leg, so the goal is to win,” said Ten Haag. I know that. I’m ready to win again.” 토토사이트
