In order to win this weekend's away Premier League game against Southampton, Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has been urged by Arsenal legend Paul Merson to bench forward Cristiano Ronaldo.
Merson questioned whether Ten Hag would start the recently acquired Casemiro against Southampton.
Remember how Ronaldo was benched by Ten Hag in Man United's 2-1 Premier League victory over Liverpool on Monday?
“I would put Cristiano Ronaldo on the bench again this weekend. I don’t think Casemiro will start either, because Ten Hag might not change the team after the Liverpool result.
“Casemiro wasn’t their first choice, if you know what I mean – they couldn’t sort out a deal for De Jong." He brings plenty of experience with him, however, and he’s a winner.
“I would expect Manchester United to win this game, but I wouldn’t be too shocked if Southampton pulled off an upset,” Merson was quoted by Sportskeeda as saying.
