Manchester United’s players appear to be taking some time to get used to Erik ten Hag’s philosophy and playing style, with a pre-season passing drill causing a few players to come unstuck.

The Dutch coach favours ball work over pure fitness and is looking to immediately instil his style on the group of players he has inherited, who have been more used to playing reactionary, counter-attacking football under previous managers.

But Ten Hag wants his side to dominate the ball and possession and his drills are designed with that philosophy and approach in mind.

One such session this week saw the players passing and moving, firing balls into two centrally-positioned players before sprinting to another corner of the quadrant.

The emphasis appeared to be on passing to a specific foot of the receiving team-mate, a skill which is very important to a side looking to build up play and allows the recipient of the pass to play around any pressure more easily.

The Glazers are incredibly unpopular at Old Trafford for the way they have run Manchester United

Manchester United went back to the Netherlands to buy its first player on Tuesday since Erik ten Hag arrived as coach.

Tyrell Malacia signed from Feyenoord for a reported initial fee of 15 million euros ($15.4 million) to compete with England international Luke Shaw to play at left back. United said Malacia signed a four-year contract.

The former Borussia Dortmund winger took a trip to Jamaica at the end of last month following United's sixth-placed finish in the Premier League.

He then jetted off to the States where he showed his 8.5 million Instagram followers his private jet before attending the Super Jam hip-hop festival in New Jersey.

Sancho is now basking in the Los Angeles sun where he is keeping on top of his fitness before returning to Carrington.

Mount, Abraham and AC Milan defender Tomori jetted off to California to meet up with Sancho after being away on the international break with the Three Lions.

Chalobah has also met up with the England stars after his impressive campaign with Chelsea as he slowly broke his way into the first-team.

Brandon Williams

Showed good intent going forward but was kept occupied by the eager Marc Albrighton and then Demarai Gray. 6

Nemanja Matic

Looked leggy again and guilty of some uncharacteristic errors that went unpunished. Eventually played at a calmer level. 6

Paul Pogba

Had little meaningful impact but fashioned a late first-half opening for Anthony Martial. More careful with the ball in the second-half. 6

Mason Grenwood

Some decent moments and mucked in on the defensive side at times but unable to have an impact up front. 6

Marcus Rashford

Wasted United's best chance and was denied by Kasper Schmeichel just before half-time. 5

Anthony Martial

Went through portions of the game without doing much but also threatened to make something happen out of nothing and won the penalty. 6

Hardly any impact before scoring late on. 6

Scott McTominay

Shored things up. 6

Although the conditions were far from normality, United players began preparations for a return to the pitch in small groups after Monday's successful 'Project Restart' meeting between Premier League clubs.

It’s been more than two years since Alexis Sanchez arrived at Old Trafford.

Securing the Chilean’s signature was considered a coup at the time, with United sending Henrikh Mkhitaryan the other way in a swap deal.

In 2009, Manchester United was at the heart of a 'tapping-up' storm when they signed Paul Pogba from Le Havre. The French club accused United of paying "very large sums" to the midfielder's parents in order to lure him to Old Trafford. Pogba, then aged 16, was at the time contracted to Le Havre but club officials claimed the player's parents refused to keep their arrangements so they could instead push through the transfer of their son to Old Trafford.

Manchester United must always be drawn away from Old Trafford. Their supporters hollered until they were hoarse, bringing some throwback swagger to a competition living in the past. United have been accused of that, too.

The matchgoers are looking ahead. "We've seen it all, we've won it all, we're Man United and we're never gonna stop," the United following chanted. That was not the only new entry to the songbook that took off against Derby.

This United are becoming as relentless as their away-dayers; unbeaten in nine and through to their sixth consecutive FA Cup quarter-final. There was a green and gold banner among the red throng, though the mutinous chants ceased in January and United are verging on the renascent.

Manchester United picked up their first win in four matches in the Premier League by beating Chelsea 2-0 at Stamford Bridge on Monday.

Goals from Anthony Martial and Harry Maguire either side of half-time secured Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side all three points in west London as Chelsea had two goals ruled out by VAR. It ended a three-game winless run for the Manchester giants in the league and moved the Red Devils to within three points of the Premier League's top four.

Chelsea, though, remain without a victory in the English top flight since January 11.

Manchester United's dominance over Chelsea this season in the Premier League continued Monday. After beating the Blues by four goals on the opening weekend of the season, the Red Devils went to Stamford Bridge and won 2-0 to inch closer to potential Champions League qualification. Chelsea, meanwhile, kept up its poor run of form.
Video Assistant Referee called off two Chelsea goals -- one was the right call and the other was questionable -- and goals from Anthony Martial in the first half and Harry Maguire in the second half were enough to give the Red Devils an important victory and a ton of momentum. Maguire was lucky to escape a red card in the first half (more on that below).

Timothy Fosu-Mensah has hinted he could return to Manchester United action as a left-back or defensive midfielder following his long injury lay-off.

The 22-year-old has not featured in senior football since his loan spell at Fulham last season was cut short by a serious knee injury.

Fosu-Mensah returned to light training at the end of last year and is working towards a return in the coming weeks as he looks to revive his promising career.
