GREAT GAME CHANGER: Ten Hag commends the adolescent who changed the game; he must start against Newcastle.

In preparation for their forthcoming Carabao Cup match against Newcastle, Manchester United must make adjustments.

Erik ten Hag has a practice of starting the following game with the same 11 players to try and make a point after a disappointing outcome.

But in this week’s Carabao Cup fourth round match against Newcastle, he is unable to accomplish this. Too many players deserve to be given the chance.

Among them is Alejandro Garnacho, who was substituted in the second half of United’s match against City when the team was already behind 2-0.

After the 3-0 loss against City, Erik ten Hag was questioned concerning his changes, which it didn’t appear he made correctly.

He expressed his desire to “bring some energy in” to the club media, citing Alejandro Garnacho’s skills.

“We have bench players, so we have Alejandro Garnacho and Mason Mount, and we know he can change games,” Ten Hag stated. The reason we bring them in is explained by this argument.

Last season, Garnacho made a game-changing assist for the winner against City. However, he was not given a chance to play yesterday, as United was a shadow of the club that won the previous league derby in January, winning all three points.

Alejandro Garnacho is someone Erik ten Hag believes in, but he needs to start expressing it. Give the 19-year-old an opportunity to start.

The question of whether Garnacho is a better starter or substitute has been discussed extensively, but here’s the thing: Right now, Marcus Rashford is not a very effective starter.

Rashford has now started for Manchester United nine times without netting a goal. A change is warranted.

Regarding Garnacho, during his previous start, he did manage to score.

The young player scored the first goal in a 3-0 victory over Crystal Palace in the Carabao Cup third round at the end of September.

Since then, he has been mistreated and merely utilized as a stand-in. This week marks the start of the Carabao Cup, so it seems appropriate that the Argentine be placed back into the starting lineup.
