Concern over Christian Eriksen at Manchester United training

Just 24 hours after their goalless draw with Newcastle United, Manchester United quickly shifted their attention to Wednesday night’s Premier League matchup with Tottenham Hotspur as they prepared at their Carrington training facility. With a lackluster effort against the Magpies, the Reds, who defeated Tottenham twice last season—3-0 away and 3-2 at Old Trafford—missed the opportunity to keep pace with the top four.

However, United did have late opportunities to win all three points but missed them via both Fred and Marcus Rashford. But United don’t have much time to reflect on what might have been because they face another crucial matchup against Spurs, who are presently tied for second in the standings. The Reds have had difficulty scoring goals recently, managing just one goal in their last two home games.

United will be driven to give their fans something to cheer about against Antonio Conte’s team due to the anticipated demand for them to score goals at a consistent rate, especially at home. Shooting practice was therefore probably a top priority at Carrington on Monday. Christian Eriksen was not visible in the photos United provided of their most recent training session, raising questions over his availability for the match against Spurs.

The summer acquisition missed the Newcastle match for the first time this year due to illness. Before Sunday’s deadlock, the Dane had started every Premier League game, and his absence was obvious to all. His ability to control play in the middle of the field and open defenses was missed by United. Ten Hag acknowledged that he was unsure whether the former Brentford player would be available for the match against Spurs after the draw with Newcastle.

The manager of United stated I can’t say whether he will take on Spurs. He is currently making a significant contribution to our team’s current state. I’m not sure if he’ll be available on Wednesday, but I certainly hope so. Of course, the workout, although discreetly and away from the cameras. In his pre-game press conference on Tuesday at noon, Ten Hag will provide an update on his physical condition.
