Ten Hag Believes Liverpool Win Could Be a Turning Point for Manchester United

Erik ten Hag is convinced that Manchester United’s thrilling 4-3 FA Cup quarter-final victory over Liverpool could mark the beginning of a successful end to a tumultuous season for the Red Devils.

It seemed that United’s last chance for silverware this season was slipping away at Old Trafford, where the hosts needed to come back twice in the late stages to end Liverpool’s chances of achieving a quadruple in Jurgen Klopp’s final season. Amad Diallo’s goal in the dying seconds of extra time, at the 121st minute, secured the chaotic tie’s victory and could represent a turning point in ten Hag’s tenure.

Manchester United now stands as a strong candidate to reach the FA Cup final for the second consecutive year, facing Coventry City in the semi-finals. Ten Hag has been under increasing pressure with his team sitting in sixth place in the Premier League, nine points shy of the top four, and having exited the Champions League early.

However, the Dutch coach believes his team is on an upward trajectory, having lost only twice in 12 matches in 2024. Ten Hag stated, “This could be the moment when the team has the belief and energy to do incredible things. When you defeat Liverpool, you can overcome any opponent.”

Erik ten Hag’s belief that Manchester United’s historic win against Liverpool could serve as a turning point offers a beacon of hope for the remainder of the season. As United prepares for the semi-finals against Coventry City and strives to improve their league standing, the victory over Liverpool could indeed inspire the team to achieve “incredible things.” With ten Hag at the helm, United’s journey towards ending the season on a high note will be one to watch closely.
