Sancho to play for United again?"As you say, Harry Maguire but we will see again after training. But Varane will train, we will see, Amrabat will train, we will see and Mount as well. But they didn't play for short or longer-term. Varane, obviously, was the shortest out."
Surprised at the challenge at United?"It depends on him. For the rest, we are preparing for Burnley and that's our focus. He will not be in the squad."
Ten Hag on dressing room unrest"No. It's my second year. I know it's not always going up, you will have your gaps and you get stronger from it as long as you stay together. That's what we're doing. In the dressing room, staff, all the staff, coaches, medical, everyone is united and at United you fight."
Ten Hag on Burnley"I don't know if it's a leak but I know opinion, I know my players. Everyone can make suggestions, we are okay with it. At United, you have to win every game so it doesn't change anything. As always, it's about how we play against Burnley, there's no easy game, definitely not against Burnley."
Ten Hag on Kees Vos"We know how intense they play football, we know their approach, I like the approach from them, the adventure, high intensity and dynamic in their game, so we have to play our best."
"It can't be [conflict of interest] because we make very good agreements about it from the start; how we cooperate in that manner. For player decisions, transfers, it's always 50-50. We both have a veto: the club, represented by John Murtough, and me. So there can never be a distraction."
Ten Hag on team news"We make the statement so I refer to the statement, everything has been made clear in the statement. No, I don't think it's a distinction. We will focus on the games. He will do as well."
Antony again"We have seen some players back on Tuesday and for tomorrow are back players out of the squad on Tuesday: Scott McTominay and Christian Eriksen. They are back."
The mounting injury list"I think we explained it in the statement, so I will refer to it."
When will Antony return?"We already did, we already expanded the squad this season because we make the reason clear. We had a World Cup in the middle of the season, we had a longer season, we had to play a longer season as well, with FA Cup. A shorter break. Every time the schedule is expanding, the load on the players is too much, it's such a great overload. Many colleagues of mine have pointed to that and I have pointed to that as well. But it keeps going. We keep expanding the schedule. Anywhere, it won't stop. Players can't deal anymore with this overload and I think that's what you see in this squad at the moment.
Ten Hag on Sancho"On Saturday, he will be back in training, so tomorrow. I have to see, but I think, yeah [he's fit]."
Youngsters coming into team"Many of you ask me this so often, these questions, and I have said everything. I said everything."
Different challenge against Palace?"Depends on their performances, on their levels, if they can show they can contribute to winning team, based on the opportunity and you win games."
Developing young talent"Definitely, both sides will be different but we got belief from it, I know the opponent is looking for revenge, clear, and that will be their view."
"You've seen already, when you develop players you see the progress and that can help you in tough situations, it's good for the club to develop such players and to get them into professional football and professional top football. I like to develop young players but the mentality has to be right and every time you have to prove it and every occasion in training and show it in the games."
Ten Hag on Antony"We are disappointed about the result. You have to analyse the game, see the problems and move forward."
Ten Hag on results"Antony will be in consideration but yesterday was his first time back in team training. We have a final training, then we'll make a decision."
Ten Hag on referees"I think I don't agree with that [lack of progress]. The team is moving forward, but we have to make adjustments as well. When you don't have a left-back [fit], we have to change and we did. At the end of the day, it's about results and we didn't get the result we were looking for, which is very disappointing."
Ten Hag on team news"I don't give comments often on refereeing because they do what they need to do. The standards need to be high. You can expect, the fans can, a high standard, so it should be because it's the Premier League. I'm sure they do what they can, I trust them."
What messages does Antony return send?"I can confirm, yeah. Licha Martinez will undergo surgery and the team news is Antony can probably return."
Ten Hag on underperforming playersTen Hag replied: "Antony co-operated fully and it came out, he's not charged, so."
Ten Hag on tomorrow's game"You have to deal with. Experienced players know how to deal with it and it's not the first time we're in this situation because that's a career, it's not only highlights, it's a journey and that will have bumps. Now it's about the character, what you have to show and how to get out. There are many positives but things we need to improve on."
Ten Hag on Galatasaray"Top football is all about results, but if the execution is not right, the process is not right, you don't win, so both [what's more important: result or display]."
Ten Hag on Rashford form"We know that [Galatasaray quality], it's not only Zaha and Icardi, but there's Mertens and Ziyech, so they have a lot more and it's about the team. We have to defend that and have to be at our best to get the right result"
Ten Hag on Bayindir"The facts are he's not scoring at this moment, but he's had opportunities, like against Brighton, where he had five or six occasions in a very good spot. If he works hard and invests every day, with the right focus and if the team around him supplies and helps him and supports him with movement, then it will come and Marcus Rashford is a player who's capable of scoring a goal in every game. When he's coming in the right spots, he will score."
"You will see [will Bayindir play tomorrow]. But we chose in the League Cup to play Andre [Onana] because he [Bayindir] has to adapt to the England standard. That's why we preferred Andre to play. But also we have to progress Altay, that's clear. He's made a very good impression in training and he's really developing, so we're really happy with it. We are convinced we have the two right goalkeepers in the squad to do the job for us."
Varane again"I think the competition is about details. You have to be efficient to win it, in the last weeks, we can improve that, being better in front of goal. We need to create a lot to score and that's the reality of the top level, you must be efficient to win trophies. We have the quality in the squad to win the competition but we have to improve."
Varane on young players"Yes, I think so [can United win Champions League], the quality is in the squad. The competition is difficult, you have to take of every detail, but we have a team with quality, a good mentality. We have to make some improvements, it wasn't the start to the season we expected, but I still believe we can compete with the best teams in the world."
"I think they are doing well, They bring energy to the team, they are still learning, which is normal and the players with more experience, it's important to lead by example. We have a lot to do and as leaders, we have to show them and talk to them. Hopefully they can bring talent and passion to the pitch and improve the squad."
How to fix problems"Consistency. That is the problem we are struggling with. In parts of the games, in big parts, we do a lot of things right, but we have moments where we struggle and in such moments we can't survive. We need to do the right things, be consistent and do it like before, so definitely you can mark such a moment like when we score or concede a goal. We have to step up."
Ten Hag on team news"It's difficult, but you do research and look at it. We've spoken about it, how we can improve and we make some agreements about that. I think it's more than one factor, concentration is one, but there's other things."
Ten Hag on Rashford"Not for tomorrow [Reguilon]. I think he's [Antony] ready for a start]."
Ten Hag on XI changes"Strikers when they don't score, they need a moment and it will come. He's so experienced and when he's doing the right things and the team is, the momentum will come and he'll be on fire."
Ten Hag on dropped levels"We've had to make changes almost every game and the routine changes. You make mistakes as a team and the opponent takes benefit from it, so we need to be on the same page, we need communication in such moments, to be well organised."
Ten Hag on Rashford again"We've dropped the levels and we have to get back to those. There are reasons for that, but still, it's not acceptable and we have to fight against it. They have a good foundation for the way we play, we have rules and principles. When they help each other and support each other, we will play better."
Ten Hag on coats for charity"It's normal not to be always at the same levels. Everyone knows the quality of him, also the opposition knows, but if Rashy is doing things right and the team is doing things right, putting him in the right places, then it's up to him. We have seen in the last weeks, he's getting into good positions, now he's a little bit struggling but this will pass because everyone knows his qualities. Everyone at Manchester United backs him, the whole team is supportive of him and believes in him, so I'm sure with that confidence, with that belief, this will change and pass."
I think it's important, we are together as a society, we have to support everyone, you give a part of you, share, so hopefully this campaign is great and hopefully everyone is supportive of it and give something if you can."
Ten Hag on Sancho"No [have you been told anything]. So I'm not involved in this, others in the club are dealing with this, I'm focusing on my team, focusing on the current block and the most important priority is the next game, it's all about that."
Team galvanised by win?"Everything has been said about him."
Ten Hag on Onana"You can't restart but what you can do is... what you see is there is a strong dressing room, they are aligned, on one page, they are so determined and willing to win games, that is what we have seen in the last couple of minutes. In the end, we beat them and physically we were very strong, mentally, we kept going and were very strong."
Ten Hag on Maguire"He knows, we know, he will do much better and as every player who's coming into the Premier League, you need an integration period but he has to step up. Big United keepers like Peter Schmeichel and David de Gea started not doomed and Andre knows that it is good to know a little bit from history. We live now, we live in the future and he has to make his future by giving better performances. I'm sure he will do. He showed it at Barcelona, Ajax, Inter Milan, he was in semi-final and final of Champions League, I'm sure he will give a great performance."
Ten Hag on Sheff United"I've not heard it [boos]. All of the fans were supportive for us against Brentford and the games before, I think we have a strong bond with our fans. I don't think Harry is booed. He doesn't deserve it. His performance against Brentford and for England he was very good."
How is Lindelof?"Every game in the Premier League is difficult, if you have seen their results against City and Spurs, they were very narrow wins. If you don't play your best football, you can have a loss. We won our last game away, finally it's not about that. You can't figure out the past and last year we were third in the league, we won a cup, we were in another final, we live in the future, we have to change the future."
Fernandes role change"Terrible situation and it's sad for the victims and the relatives, family and friends of the victims there in Brussels. It's a crazy world. Of course, Victor had a problem, it's a bad experience, as Sweden national team, he was the captain, he had to stay in front and give statements but he dealt with it. He's exhausted after it. He didn't sleep overnight. He returned and yesterday he was back in training. He dealt with the situation. Our thoughts are with Victor, the victims' relatives and the victims. Victor has energy and is ready to play this game."
"As a squad, in periods of the season, you have to deal with certain situations like injuries, at full-back and right wing in last couple of games. We have to find solutions. Bruno is a very good right winger as well, he has his freedom there, playing not typical but coming inside more, the 10 role and always you want to use a player like this, he's a player that creates one of the most chances in all of the games."
