Several senior Manchester United players believe Erik ten Hag’s intense pre-season training schedule is a major reason for the team’s poor start.

Manchester United are back in action on Sunday vs Everton but will be without Lisandro Martinez, Christian Eriksen, Rasmus Hojlund, Casemiro and Aaron Wan-Bissaka, while Luke Shaw and Andre Onana are doubts.
