What FPL managers can expect from new Man Utd boss Erik ten Hag

Erik ten Hag was named as Manchester United’s new manager in April, with the Dutchman officially taking charge at the end of the season.

The 52-year-old is regarded as one of the most progressive coaches in Europe, after guiding Ajax to five trophies in the past four seasons whilst playing an attractive, attacking brand of football.

Ten Hag, meanwhile, has appointed his own staff with Mitchell van der Gaag and Steve McClaren named as his assistants.

United fans will now be hoping ten Hag can bring success to Old Trafford, but what does his appointment mean for Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers, and can he reinvigorate Bruno Fernandes and co as FPL assets?

In this, our latest Scout Report, we’ll take a closer look.

THE HISTORY

Ten Hag’s decent but modest playing career came to an end in 2002, having spent his whole career in the Netherlands playing as a centre-half for FC Twente, De Graafschap, RKC Waalwijk and FC Utrecht.

After hanging up his boots, he went straight into coaching, working his way through the youth systems before becoming Steve McClaren’s assistant at Twente. The Dutchman only worked with the former England manager for one season, when they finished as runners-up, but clearly left a lasting impression.

“We were starting pre-season training the day after I was appointed. He brought out this folder, and there were six weeks’ worth of pre-season training planned in there. Every minute of every day was laid out, from drinks sessions to warming down, to individual work. It was so detailed. I’d not seen anything like it before, and I’ve not seen anything like it since.

He would prepare meticulous game plans about the opposition. How we were going to press, how we were going to build up. I thought I knew football before, but going there and experiencing that… I knew nothing about football. He could see things in the game that nobody else could see, myself included. I have to sit up in the stands to see the patterns of a game, but he could stand on the touchline (and see them).

He always knew the answer to everything, how to change shape, change positions. His adjustments in the games — obviously I had worked with Sir Alex (Ferguson), and I used to think that some of his subs and changes were strange, but they always worked. Erik is the same in that respect.” – Steve McClaren

His first managerial job followed at Dutch second-tier outfit Go Ahead Eagles in 2012, where he guided the club to its first promotion in 17 years, before taking charge of Bayern Munich II, the German giants’ reserve team. There, he would learn from Pep Guardiola, who had just taken over the first team.

“During my time at Bayern Munich, among other things, I saw how things work (at a big club). Every detail can be picked out for analysis. The media, people in general, always find something if you look for it. A hundred things can go right, if one thing goes wrong, people highlight it. That’s the football world.” – Erik ten Hag

After two years in Bavaria, he returned to the Netherlands in 2015 as Utrecht manager, taking them to fifth spot in his first season and then fourth position in the second, leading to Europa League qualification.

His success at Utrecht saw him become Ajax manager in December 2017 following the dismissal of Marcel Keizer, a decision that was spectacularly validated in the year that followed, as he guided the Dutch giants to the Champions League semi-final in 2018/19. His troops beat defending champions Real Madrid at the last-16 stage and ousted Juventus in the quarter-finals before falling to Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham Hotspur in the last four. During his time at Ajax, ten Hag also led the Amsterdam club to three Dutch titles and two Dutch cups.

MANAGEMENT STYLE

What FPL managers can expect from new Man Utd boss Erik ten Hag 3

Ten Hag is a perfectionist, who will not be afraid to confront underperforming players if his high standards aren’t met.

“I will not change my view on coaching. The material always determines how you play, but I set the requirements that come with it and the standards. I tell who has what task and those who don’t meet it, will be told that, regardless of who it is. I make no concessions in that regard.” – Erik ten Hag

However, in an attempt to protect his players, such conversations will happen behind closed doors.

“I definitely protect people outwardly. Internally, it can be different if someone has crossed a line. Ultimately, it is top sport. You have to be able to trust each other, otherwise you can’t get results. If my protective attitude comes at the expense of myself, so be it. I am the manager, the leader, I do that in the interest of getting results.” – Erik ten Hag

He also believes he is ready for the intense media scrutiny at Old Trafford.

“You don’t have to read everything. And you know that in my profession you get criticised. You have to deal with that. Sometimes it’s right, sometimes it’s wrong.” – Erik ten Hag

You get the feeling that his handling of the press will be key, too, something Athletic journalist Carl Anka touched on recently.

“Ten Hag has been known to dismiss questions he feels are irrelevant during interviews and press conferences. That has gone down well(ish) in straight-talking Dutch media and football circles, but he may find it odd how often he is asked about United’s glorious past and how quickly he expects to restore the club to their “rightful” place. His answers on questions like these will be important. Especially if he’s asked them just before an international break.” – Carl Anka, The Athletic

PLAYING STYLE

What FPL managers can expect from new Man Utd boss Erik ten Hag 5

“Attack is the best defence and it’s difficult to score against us as, first of all, we attack with 11 and defend with 11. All the players in our way of playing have a job, and have to do that job with 100% discipline. Achieve that, and it’s difficult to score against your team.” – Erik ten Hag

Under ten Hag, Ajax played attacking and aggressive football, dominating possession with lots of pressing.

The Dutch tactician typically employed a 4-2-3-1 formation, which will obviously be familiar to United’s current squad, given it’s the same system used by former boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and at times, interim manager Ralf Rangnick.

However, he also used a more possession-orientated 4-3-3, a system more typically associated with Dutch football.

In both set-ups, Ajax would build with a back three, either via two centre-halves and one full-back (the other would push into midfield), or a defensive midfielder dropping in. The two central midfielders were expected to get through an almighty amount of work, with their roles as much about playmaking as it was going box-to-box. The wingers were aggressive and expected to win the ball back immediately after losing it, while centre-forward Sebastien Haller came alive in ten Hag’s system, regularly dropping deep to help build up the play and filling the role of target man when Ajax wanted to go long.

Having keenly watched Guardiola at work in Munich, there are many similarities in the way ten Hag’s sides play.

“I learned a lot from Guardiola. His philosophy is sensational, what he did in Barcelona, Bayern and now with Manchester City, that attacking and attractive style sees him win a lot. I want to have possession and hurt the opponent.

It’s about possession, about movement, about vertical attacking patterns, about pressing, wingers moving into the middle to make room for the full-backs. Everyone is attacking, everyone is defending. It’s this structure that I’ve tried to implement with Ajax.” – Erik ten Hag

THE PROSPECTS

What FPL managers can expect from new Man Utd boss Erik ten Hag

United finished 2021/22 with their worst points tally in Premier League history, ending the campaign in sixth spot.

As a result, expectations should be realistic under ten Hag: remember, even Pep himself finished third in his first season at Manchester City.

“I said this is the project, to bring Man United back on top, but also we have to accept the current situation we are in. First of all, Man United belong in the Champions League, so that will be the first target.” – Erik ten Hag

There will undoubtedly be new arrivals this summer, with United already linked to the likes of Frenkie de Jong, Jurrien Timber and Darwin Nunez.

However, there’s also existing talent at the club that shouldn’t be completely written off by FPL managers. If ten Hag can revive some of their careers, we could perhaps see one or two value options emerge, especially as we’re expecting plenty of price drops.

“That we have to accept the current situation but also that they have a good potential. A year before this team was second in the league, so the potential is there. Learn the lessons from this season, we have to analyse clearly what went wrong. But from then on work hard, get a team and fight the opponents.” – Erik ten Hag when asked what his message to the squad will be after a difficult campaign last year

Ten Hag likes his wingers to stay high and wide, so we could see significant improvement from Jadon Sancho, who was up there with the best players in the Bundesliga in 2020/21. At Ajax, right-winger Antony certainly wasn’t afraid to cut inside and take shots, registering 4.1 goal attempts per 90 minutes, netting 12 and assisting a further 10 in all competitions.

Then there’s Bruno Fernandes and Cristiano Ronaldo. The latter had an impressive individual season in 2021/22, scoring 18 goals in 30 Premier League appearances despite the collective decline of the team. Under ten Hag, he should receive the ball much closer to goal, although United will surely sign another forward, not necessarily to replace Ronaldo, but he is 38 years old in February.

If United can fix their midfield, their defenders stand to benefit and Luke Shaw could perhaps thrive, providing he can rekindle his Euro 2020 form. However, it’s not the worst idea to stay clear of United’s backline for the time being, at least initially, given that it may take months to coach an effective counter-press. For example, Guardiola in his debut season at City managed only 12 clean sheets, and just one in their opening nine Premier League outings.

We can, of course, look to pre-season for clues as to how United will perform, but it won’t be until Gameweek 1 and beyond that we can really assess ten Hag’s impact. Chances are, then, the majority will be comfortable with little investment to begin with, although an appealing opening schedule may change things and boost the appeal of an attacking punt.

    I noticed in the pre-season section that Jean-Michael Seri had to be released twice. Maybe he was reluctant to leave.

      Haha, I was in Spain when he was rumoured to be going to Barcelona, the news wouldn't stop showing him...how did it come to this?

    My FPL price prediction sheet has been updated with new signings.

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1tOXOHLkK5PaJPke_a7o4uQT707lDpKWAlr5y6VmcXU4/edit?usp=sharing

    Not long now until we get fixtures and I think we'll get the new game launch within the next few weeks. If the prices fall similar to how I've predicted, I think I'll 100% start with both Haaland and Salah and then see where we go from there.

    Cancelo I also feel is one of the best picks in the game and a complete lock in my GW1 team if fit. He scored 1 goal last season and yet took the most shots of any City player. If he converts more (like he did for Portugal) he's probably the most undervalued player in the game.

    Nunez is intriguing. I'm not sure how they'll price him. 10m seems like a safe bet but he could be 11m. He's an elite finisher but game time is a question mark and he's not as proven as Haaland.

      Been using a much more rudimentary version for my trust old excel squad builder (which admittedly I haven't re-shared in about 5 years):

        Oh I like your prices better! Guaita & Dubravka at 4.5 would be nice. I guess maybe you've erred on the lower side than Camzy, but they still seem pretty fair overall

          I think generally in recent years the initial reaction has always been that prices are pretty generous, so I err on that side. That said a few (e.g. Dubravka) are probably oversights I haven't updated; pretty sure he'll be 5.0.

      Just done a good rough team and im on 99.5 and still needing a midfielder haha.
      Part of me hopes youre way off with prices, but the other part of me really hopes youre correct as would make it alot harder this year meaning alot of varied teams

      Martinez Raya
      TAA Cancello Peresic Trip Liv
      Son Sancho Diaz Smith Rowe
      Halland Gelhardt Solanke

      Id be hoping for a 451 realistically, nice one btw with doing that spreadsheet!!

        14 days, 6 hours ago

        I think my prices are pretty fair although I'm skewing more expensive if it's a close call. I don't think I'll be far off with these.

        I'm not building a team though until the game launches. The predicted prices are there so I can see pricing disparities and identify value and I'll buy the good players that come in under what I predicted.

          I had to build a team, Monday morning at work, with a coffee, oh how ive missed this haha - so thanks again for that

          I cant seem how im gong to fit Salah in though, id have to make too many sacrifices

          1. Camzy

            14 days, 6 hours ago

            Diaz, Sancho, ESR and goalies can be reduced.

            We'd have to pick a 5.5m or 6m mid probably. It's whoever I see as good value. It'll probably be like Harry Wilson or Brennan Johnson.

            1. Red Red Robins
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              14 days, 6 hours ago

              I think Sancho at 8.5 could be great value, toss up with him and Bowen really
              Diaz youd have to have going no Salah

              ESR to a 4.5, Solanke to a 4.5, maybe even getting rid of TAA for Robertson too. Definite options there

              1. Camzy
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                I find the 8.5m midfield slot a bit too pricy. You're not gonna captain those guys. Maybe one slot for Mount, Foden, Sancho type players if they get a good run of form/fixtures but we saw this last year that this tier of player can largely be avoided because they aren't good value for money and you won't captain them.

                1. Red Red Robins
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 1 Year

                  Very true Camzy

        I’m not convinced prices making it harder actually creates more varied teams. Value will emerge as the game can’t know when a Berahinho or Benteke will have their one off season etc we will be forced to pick those players. Fixtures and injuries will probably also lead everyone to the same premiums. At the end of last season when most my rivals had huge team value their teams were much more varied when they could afford more. Some went Threemium, some went big at the back people didn’t have to take advantage of Nketiah being a 5.0 so only some did. If the prices squeeze us they’ll squeeze us the same way in my opinion.

        1. Red Red Robins
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          14 days, 6 hours ago

          I see your point, but i think this year if Salah is 13 you'll have more teams without him which already makes it more varied.
          Id have never thought of going without Salah but now im fairly sure i wont be.
          Kane or Haaland/both, defenders more expensive, i usually go 352 but this year with prices i can see a 451.

          Either way im excited already. Time for coffee no2 🙂

            I agree that they should price every player to make it a close decision and if they make someone an easy choice it isn’t good for the game. I just don’t think they should make it ‘harder’ intentionally as I’ve heard some suggest. The less flexibility we have the more we’ll end up on the same starting team. Getting the fixtures will only add to that.

            1. Red Red Robins
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year

              Yeah true, fixtures will play a big part

          Oops forgot to add, agree with you about squeezing, be good find a 1 or maybe even 2 really good value players at 4.5, a Lundstrom player be ideal haha

        You probably saved money but counting Smith and Rowe as two players! 😉
        It's not a million miles off my draft, although I'd replace Sancho with Kulusevski. Currently, I'm veering closer to Doherty until I'm confident Perisic gets enough gametime.

          Camzy - excellent punts re. the prices there. You are missing my intended 5th defender - Tsimikas. 4.5?

            He'll be 5.0 at least for sure.

                  Me too. Digger burned me last year but I'll take the Cash. I'll get him in place of a Spurs wingback and save 1m. Gerrard will play his for 90 mins; Conte for 60.

                  1. Red Red Robins

                    14 days, 5 hours ago

                    I can see me getting burned this year with the 5 subs. My wingbacks being replaced on 58mins

                      Exactly. Got to be very conscious of that. I'd say the Spurs and Chelsea WBs are particularly vulnerable.

                        I think Spurs will 100%, Peresic and Sess, Doh and the right back theyll prob sign
                        if i want spurs maybe Romero but i think he'll be 5 and better players in that bracket. Tripp if 1 i want tbh

            Didn't list everyone. Just starting defenders and attackers with fantasy interest (no DMs or subs).

      Cancelo is definitely a problem for me. I don't feel like I'll be able to afford him, yet as you say despite his solitary goal he could have had a lot more. He had I think 9 assists and again could have had a lot more and with Haaland there you'd imagine his xA should increase.

      1. NateDog

        *And even with all of those could-have-beens, he ended up the 5th highest scorer this year

        Skimping on defence or expecting major hikes for premium WBs? At 7/7.5 I think I'll take Cancelo

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          14 days, 5 hours ago

          Id sooner downgrade TAA than Cancello this year, Cancello 1st on team

          1. The Mentaculus

            14 days, 5 hours ago

            Here's my rough draft if you're interested. Been tinkering with including Darwin in 442 if he comes in at 9m.

            4.5 (4)
            Cancelo Robertson Doherty Trippier (Clyne)
            Son Diaz _ _ (4.5)
            Håland Darwin (4.5)

            Should leave about 12.5-13m for the final 2 mid spots which will be more fluid & fixture-dependent. Maybe something like Johnson & Martinelli

              • 9 Years

              You're putting an awful lot of faith on both Diaz and Darwin being starters and getting sufficient minutes. Are you planning to permacap Haaland?

                Håland/Son (C) mainly, although its true that this setup may require a leap of faith in being able to captain Diaz occasionally. I'm pretty confident he starts regularly though. Darwin I'm not too sure yet tbh... another option might be starting with Jota (as forward hopefully) with the plan to switch him to Darwin once up to speed, or else redistributing those funds across midfield & playing 451.

                  Well that's the quandry - you've got 3 very expensive assets in Diaz, Darwin and Jota, and at least one of them is going to 1-pointer in any given GW. I'm going with Diaz as my sole Liverpool forward option myself.

                    Yes I would have to hope for some fortuitous timing if switching between Jota & Darwin. On the other hand, its 3 Liverpool players with great ceilings for around 25m & I can still afford 2x premium City & Spurs assets, which seems pretty nicely rounded on starting budget (& impossible with Salah)

              Like it, could go a Villa fullback over Doh to save too

          I expect he'll be 7 for sure. Haven't even entertained the idea of looking at making a team yet but from a general idea of price points I thought I'd have to go for a Laporte-type instead. Think I'll have to look again. Planning on Robbo over TAA. Definitely don't want to skimp but Robbo, Chilwell and Cancelo alone will be pricey. Likely to add in someone like Trippier and Mitchell after that if they're 5 and 4.5 or so.

      Great work, given it a whirl without fixtures, relying on a 4.5 starter who I cannot decide on in a 4-4-2 is the big issue, but fun to have a play with it!

      Meslier 4.0
      Trent James Dias 4.5 4.0
      Son Diaz Maddison Johnson 4.5
      Haaland Toney 4.5

        Apart from the GK, it looks pretty balanced. I'd hold off on a Chelsea defender for now until we know who the back line comprises of.

        I quite like this team. Will probably do something kind of similar.

        Although Cancelo is the first name on my team sheet unless they radically overhaul the defender pricing.

      Nunez is a game changer for Salah potentially. Let's say DN is priced at 8M or Below? And a locked Center Forward

        8?!!!!

          Indeed. 9 would be minimum. Wasn't Firmino 9.5? Nunes will likely be more prolific.

        No chance that Nunez is less than 9.0m imo. Would be a pricing mistake regardless of his performance if he's less than 9m.

          Nope, not a mistake.

          8 to 8.5 is a fair price, gives him room to rise if the performance and playing time is there.

          (1) 2022 is his only big year. Never scored more than the teens until this year
          (2) Don't really know how much he will play at Pool.
          (3) Don't know if he will be an upfield press Forward or the target Forward, huge difference
          (4) His goals are not in a top league, a good league yes, but not a top league
          (5) Stats look like Timo Werner before Chelsea, very similar to the Wormhole.

          By the way, not saying he is not good. The fact that Klopp and Liverpool want him is the best sign. How many busts does Klopp have in the transfer market. If he were heading to the Manchester United clown show, yeah 70% chance of bust.

            He's a 100m signing with a prolific goal scoring record. Timo Werner came in at 9.5m into a Chelsea team who are far worse at creating chances than Liverpool.

            8m is how much DCL started at last year. 8.5m how much Lacazette started at.

    Coffee is brewed. Where is my fresh content?

      I can recommend the musings of David Wardale if you're waiting for the scout articles to turnover. He's a brilliant writer of FPL content, very funny. I wish he was still at the scout 🙁

        "Ten Things We Learned From FPL Season 21/22"

        I didn't learn any lesson. Last season was an outlier due to covid and all the DGWs. Next season will have the World Cup in the middle of it. Different scenarios require different lessons.

    When (roughly) is the FPL site going to be updated for the new season?

    Seems Eriksen has decided to leave Brentford. United and Spurs are deemed to be interested. I wonder where his heart lies? 🙂
    Seriously, a midfield Spurs double-up of Son and Eriksen would be tantalising.

      I hope he goes to Spurs, would be great tbh. If his price is good id be having him - hoping 6m

          Camzy has him at 6.5. Would be good if he can just wait until FPL have him priced as a Brentford player!

            I'm looking at a 4-5-1 by the way, with my 3rd-5th mids being Kulu, Eriksen and BrunoG.

              451 same as me, but do want an okish 1st sub tbh.

                14 days, 4 hours ago

                Sure. I'd have a starting 4.5 defender on the bench along with someone like Gelhardt who should take advantage of the 5 sub rule.
