Manchester United have been one of the most successful clubs in the English Premier League (EPL) history. But their current form has been disappointing as they are currently placed 6th in the table eight points behind Tottenham Hotspur with one game in hand. The Red Devils will be facing Chelsea in their upcoming game away from home. A side whose form is worse than Man U as they have been winless against them in the last 12 games. 

Erik ten Hag has been under fire after the dismal show of the legendary club. The Dutchman's tactics has been questioned by the fans as the team's consistency has been the problem this season. There are rumours that the former Ajax coach might be sacked after the current season. Amidst all the speculations the 54-year-old has come up with a statement, he has urged Sir Jim Ratcliffe to have patience with the first team. Ratcliffe is the new investor for the Red Devils and is in control of the club's football operations.

Despite the news from the British Media of Ten Hag's dismissal from the club, the coach himself has the belief that he might get some more time for the team to perform well. United need to catch Tottenham and Aston Villa in the Champions League race after missing points at Brentford last weekend. Ten Hag refuses to give up the chase, but says that a severe injury list this season has hampered their chances.

Is Ten Hag's hot seat underfire?

Chelsea has seen three coaches under the two-year tenure of Todd Boehly. Mauricio Pochettino is the latest one with the club’s new owners also overseeing a staggering number of new signings. This situation for the Blues might instigate the new owners of the rival club as well. After being asked about the Blues situation he said the management needs to follow the process. 

He also added, "We have good young players coming through. They are developing very well in their progress. We are in a good way, a good direction and we need to take the next steps. Don't interrupt this process."
