Man United Must Win At Fulham And Copenhagen To Reverse Poor Form –McTominay

Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay says the Red Devils must win their upcoming Premier League match against Fulham on Saturday, November 4 at Craven Cottage and their November 8 Champions League Group A game at Copenhagen to navigate to winning ways.

United have endured 3-0 back-to-back defeats against Manchester City and Newcastle United and they are not in good form at the moment.

The Red Devils are currently eighth in the Premiership table with 15 points from 10 games. They are third in Group A of the 2023/24 UEFA Champions League with three points after matchday three.

Erik ten Hag’s team, with a poor run so far in the new season, is currently at risk of not qualifying for any European competition next season.

The club’s pedigree has also been partly bruised. According to OptaJoe Manchester United’s 3-0 defeat to Manchester City at the weekend was the first time they lost consecutive home games by three goals or more since October 1962.

In an interview with Manutd.com, McTominay says United need to win their next games against Fulham and FC Copenhagen.

“We have to win. That’s always the thought process. Of course, my thoughts are with the fans at the moment because we’re not playing well and it’s difficult for them –they pay their hard-earned money every week to come and watch us and the least we can do is play and win football matches,” McTominay said.

“It’s not quite happening at the moment, sometimes that’s football. I feel like for us in that dressing room, we have to stay tight and keep a clear head, and we can’t get too emotional with everything surrounding us. We’ve got to block it all out.

“I feel like the players feel that whenever we go back inside the dressing room the anger is towards ourselves and also the anger is towards not pleasing the fans and giving them what they want.”

McTominay added: “I can assure the fans that’s probably the most important thing in the players’ heads. We want to do it for the people who travel home and away and watch every single game and support us.”

McTominay has scored three goals in seven Premier League games this term and has scored three games in nine games across all competitions this campaign.
