Erik ten Hag ends tough week with win amid uncertainty.
Victor Lindelof’s goal gave Manchester United a 1-0 win against Luton, silencing speculation about Ten Hag’s future. In the Premier League, United has won four of its last five games, moving near the top four.
“Despite the trouble we had, we are in a very good position,” said Ten Hag, with United three points off fourth-place Liverpool.
Ahead of the international break, Ten Hag secured a vital win after questions about his position. The defeat to Copenhagen left United at the bottom of its Champions League group. Domestically, a title challenge looks unlikely after five league defeats in its first 11 games before the win against Luton.
United’s medical staff will monitor injuries to Rasmus Hojlund and Christian Eriksen. Hojlund is still waiting for his first domestic goal after scoring five times in four appearances in Europe.
Arsenal’s 3-1 win against Burnley moved them level on points with first-place Manchester City. Burnley could be bottom of the table if Sheffield United avoids a loss against Brighton. Meanwhile, Newcastle suffered back-to-back losses after victories against Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund.
Wolves shocked Spurs with a 2-1 comeback win, stopping them from moving to the top of the standings. Newcastle lost to Bournemouth, ending a seven-match unbeaten league run. Everton’s 3-2 win at Crystal Palace moved them up to 14th in the standings.
