Sky Sports graphics department did Erik ten Hag dirty, and they made the mistake twice

Sky Sports graphics department did Erik ten Hag dirty, and they made the mistake twice

The Man Utd manager was given the wrong name during the coverage of his sides win against Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup.

Erik ten Hag could be very happy with his nights work on Thursday, as his Manchester United side progressed into the Carabao Cup fourth round, but Sky Sports made a mistake with his name on their graphics.

United lost to Villa last weekend in the Premier League, ending a run of five games without a loss and providing the latest knock to their chances of finishing in the top four.

They were given an immediate chance to gain some revenge on Unai Emery's side at Old Trafford in the cup, in the Spaniard's second game in charge of Villa.

It was a good night for Ten Hag, eventually at least, as he managed to give many of his regular starting players a bit of a rest and not start them.

However they couldn't all stay off for the whole game, as the Dutchman needed to turn to Christian Eriksen and some others off the bench to save his team.

Alejandro Garnacho in particular made a huge impact off the bench with the final two assists of the game, including one brilliant pass for Scott McTominay's goal.

Ten Hag might have been feeling really chuffed for himself, but Sky Sports took him down a peg by calling him 'Erik hen Tag' on their graphics, leading to people joking that it's a shame his middle name isn't 'Gut' (Erik gut hen Tag in case you haven't got it).

Speaking after the match, Ten Hag was full of praise for Garnacho, but also wanted to make sure he kept up a good attitude in training.

"It was good that he came on and showed that performance and had that impact in the game, to be able to assist, make the dribbles and run behind," the former Ajax boss said.

"He still has things to learn but quite obviously we are happy with his development and he can contribute to the team.

"It depends on his approach, his attitude. When he keeps working then yes, it is possible [for him to play more]. He wants to improve every day. He has to do the right things in his lifestyle. He has the capability."

Once again after full time, Sky showed that they hadn't fixed their graphics, once again giving him the wrong name, as he was interviewed pitchside by Peter Schmeichel and Dion Dublin.

After a really poor first half, United went 1-0 down to Ollie Watkins goal, coming just hours after the Villa forward found out he wouldn't be going to the World Cup.

United hit back within a minute, with Anthony Martial knocking in from close range, but parity didn't last too long either with the visitors retaking the lead.

Leon Bailey's header at the back post wasn't going on target but Diogo Dalot flicked out a boot in an attempt to clear it and the ball went in.

Marcus Rashford got United back on level terms following the substitutions from Ten Hag, which saw the poor Donny van de Beek removed.

Garnacho then set up Bruno Fernandes as the hosts finally took the lead for the first time before McTominay rounded off the scoring in injury time.
