This is your Manchester United morning news for Thursday, September 29.
United players have returned to training.
Manchester United’s international stars have been returning to Carrington in stages this week, and they were joined by three more on Wednesday in the form of Antony, Christian Eriksen, and Diogo Dalot.
The majority of United’s international players had good international breaks. Eriksen was the star, scoring a magnificent goal in the defeat to Croatia and then playing a key role in the surprise win over France. Dalot was also on the scoresheet, scoring a rare brace in Portugal’s 4-0 triumph over the Czech Republic. Meanwhile, Antony had two substitute appearances for Brazil.
The trio returned to training on Wednesday, joining Raphael Varane, Tyrell Malacia, and Scott McTominay, who had returned to Carrington on Tuesday, as well as Jadon Sancho and David de Gea, who were not on international duty, and a slew of promising prospects.
Eriksen’s doubts are addressed by Fernandes.
Bruno Fernandes of Manchester United has confessed that playing with Christian Eriksen makes his game easier.
Eriksen joined United on a free transfer this summer after impressing on a six-month loan with Brentford. Eriksen has made a strong impression in his first few months in Manchester and is already an important player for Erik ten Hag.
Ten Hag has started Eriksen in all eight of United’s Premier League and Europa League games this season, reflecting his significance to the team, and he’s flourished in a three-man midfield alongside Scott McTominay and Fernandes.
