Man Utd fans think they've worked out when Erik ten Hag could be sacked

Manchester United fans think they have worked out when Erik ten Hag could be relieved of his duties at Old Trafford.

The pressure continues to mount on the Dutchman after United suffered a tenth defeat in all competitions against Newcastle on Saturday night.

Anthony Gordon's winner in the second half leaves United in seventh place and continues a horrid away run.

It followed on from a disappointing 3-3 draw in the Champions League in a must-win game away at Galatasaray.

There are new reports claiming Ten Hag has lost half of the dressing room, leading to a number of journalists being banned from the latest pre-match press conference.

United will look to bounce back with upcoming clashes against Chelsea at Old Trafford before before massive fixtures against Bayern Munich and Liverpool.

But already plenty of fans think the clash at Anfield, where United were pumped 7-0 last season, could prove the final nail in the coffin.

The fixture has been something of a 'grim reaper' one for recent United managers.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was dismissed not too long after being hammered 5-0 by Liverpool, while Jose Mourinho's final game in charge of United was a defeat at the hands of the Reds.

One fan predicted: "So Ten hag is getting sacked after we hold 8 against Liverpool on 17th."

A second said: "I firmly believe that some of these players have literally mapped out a plan to down tools up until the Liverpool game next week, and that will be the fatal blow to Ten Hag."

A third commented: "Erik Ten Hag is getting sacked on the 16th of December 2023 when Manchester United face Liverpool."

A fourth weighed in: "Erik Ten Hag getting sacked next week after being demolished by Chelsea, Bayern and Liverpool…"

Meanwhile, former Arsenal midfielder Paul Merson believes Ten Hag's days will be numbered if they lose their next three games on the bounce.

In his column for Sportskeeda, Merson wrote: "If they lose to Chelsea, Bournemouth, and Bayern, I don’t see how Ten Hag keeps his job. I do think they’ll beat Bournemouth, however, and they could do well against a Bayern Munich side that has already qualified for the Round of 16."
