Scott McTominay has kept latest £70million signing Casemiro out of the team in the intervening time with good performances within the midfield alongside Christian Eriksen and Bruno Fernandes ahead of them. Sancho has operated on each flanks this season, with Elanga and Antony on the opposite side while Marcus Rashford has been preferred to Ronaldo up front.
Despite Ten Hag sticking with the team that’s currently winning games, his comments at Ajax have suggested that he will probably be open to rotation going forward.
“But nobody is, in my book [a guaranteed starter],” Ten Hag told Dutch Soccer Site in 2019. “And I told them this. There’s a hierarchy, yes, but whether you’re 19 or 29, you play if you’re one of the best for the position.”
