Manchester united boss Erik ten Hag may need to take a ruthless approach to his squad in the coming weeks following a disappointing defeat to rivals Manchester City on Sunday. A promising start to the match quickly subsided after Erling Haaland’s opening goal with United players losing their heads towards the end of the match

United fans voiced their disapproval at the final whistle after seeing their team lose for the fifth time already in 10 league games. Drastic changes are needed and some players who were on the pitch against City will undoubtedly be worried about their future.

Express Sport takes a look at five United stars who will have to figure out a way to turn their form around in the coming weeks.

Christian Eriksen

The Denmark international appeared to run out of gas in the second half against City and it cost United dearly. Ten Hag may think twice about relying on Eriksen now in a midfield unit that is already coming under intense scrutiny
Similar to Eriksen, Jonny Evans may not have expected to be starting against Manchester City but he was found out against Erling Haaland. The kind of player who no doubt has a positive impact in the dressing room given his experience, but arguably shouldn’t be anywhere near United’s starting line-up in the future.

Marcus Rashford

The United attacker is in one of the worst slumps of his career and there doesn’t look any way out of it at the moment. Some fans are beginning to turn on the 25-year-old too with questions being asked on whether he can turn his fortune around
