Manchester United Boss - Erik ten Hag Has Called Upon His Players to do Two Things to Progress

Saw their four-game unbeaten streak in the Premier League cut short by arch-rivals in the Manchester derby at Etihad last week - Manchester United boss, Erik ten Hag has called upon his players to do two things to progress in the league - [thus - to be very "smart and nasty"].

The Dutch manager disclosed that in a report sighted on BBC Sports News as his side has received the most yellow cards (23) this season - only Nottingham Forest had more (24) in the English top-flight league.

In defence of what he said, the 52-year-old talked about how the Premier League is tough to challenge - and to do so, you need to play smart with a bit of aggressiveness while avoiding being booked which sometimes tends to hinder a player's performance to some extent.

In the case of Portuguese right-back Diogo Dalot, who received an early yellow card against Manchester City in the second minute as they lost 6-3 as guests.

However, bounced back on Thursday in the Europa League at Omonia by 3-2 - as they prepare for this week's encounter with Everton at Goodison Park - eyeing winning ways.
