After winning their first games in the Premier League on Saturday night, both Tottenham and United will be looking to improve on their current records going into the second week of league play.
Even though they came out on top with a 1-0 victory over the Wolves at Old Trafford, the Red Devils’ performance left a lot to be desired.In the meantime, despite putting up a great performance, Spurs were pushed to a 2-2 draw by Brentford in the first game they played without Harry Kane. After 11 minutes of play at the G-tech Community Stadium, Romero scored the first goal of the Postecoglou era by powerfully heading home a free kick taken by James Maddison. This goal marked the beginning of the Postecoglou era. The news that the 25-year-old player has been given the green light to compete against United’s rival Spurs, who obviously suffered when Romero was taken off the field, is certain to outrage United fans.
“Cristian is good to go, he’s been in the hands of the medical team going through all the protocols,” Postecoglou said at a press conference before the game on Friday. The game was about to begin.
There was a particular protocol that we were required to stick to, and he was successful in following it. He had an excellent week of preparation and felt ready to go each day of that week.
As a result of a head injury he had in a collision earlier in the game, the center defender had to be removed off the field, which caused the Argentine to become visibly frustrated. Lisandro Martinez, who received a knock during United’s match against Wolves and was taken out of the game at halftime, is expected to be able to play again, according to Erik ten Hag, who is in charge of United’s injury report.
Ten Hag gave the following response when asked whether or not Martinez was available: “He was just training [on Thursday], so I think so yeah.”
The Argentine has arrived in north London, although his partner central defender, Harry Maguire, has not been sighted with the rest of the group and may be nursing an injury.
After the move to West Ham fell through, Ten Hag addressed the media and gave the England international an honest message regarding his playing possibilities at Old Trafford. Ten Hag’s comments came after the trade to West Ham failed to go through.
