Suara.com – Manchester United will play a prestigious match against Manchester City this weekend. In order to win the Manchester derby, Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag was asked not to be proud of copying the tactics of his predecessor, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Manchester United will host city rivals and eternal rivals, Manchester City in the 10th week of the 2023/2024 Premier League match at Old Trafford, Sunday (29/10) evening WIB.
Ahead of this match, Manchester United is not the favorite to face their neighbors even though they are playing at home. Manchester City has been much better than Manchester United in the last few seasons.
Likewise in the Premier League this season. Manchester City is in second place with 21 points, while Manchester United is still stuck in eighth place with 15 points.
However, Manchester United still managed to steal wins several times when they met Manchester City, especially when the team was still managed by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Solskjaer’s defensive and counter-attack tactics have proven effective several times against the strategy of Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola.
English football pundit Jamie Carragher believes that Manchester United can win over Manchester City this weekend if they play the scheme that Solskjaer has used.
“The only way Manchester United can stop Manchester City is for them to play as underdogs,” said Carragher as reported by The Telegraph, Friday (27/10).
“Manchester United must try to use the tactics that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has used. Erik ten Hag should not hesitate to copy them,” continued the former Liverpool defender.

“They have to defend deep, then launch a quick counterattack.”
