The Red Devils were woeful for so much of the 23/24 season, raising their game against rivals Liverpool and Manchester City in the FA Cup to make it consecutive trophy-winning seasons, but even those wins came either side of a penalty shoot-out win over Coventry, where they threw a 3-0 lead away and were a whisker away from losing in extra-time.

A club of Manchester United’s stature shouldn’t be measured on cup efforts, and it seemed that even with the outstanding FA Cup win over Manchester City, the club would part ways with the Dutchman in the aftermath.

United U-turned however, confirmed to Ten Hag over the summer that he would in fact remain in charge, presumably when agreements couldn’t be reached with their primary targets.

bet365’s Steve Freeth said: “It was only a few months ago that every Tom, Dick and Harry were being linked as his replacement after guiding Manchester United to their worst ever Premier League finish.

“However, Ten Hag has produced on the trophy front in his first two years at Old Trafford and we make him a /* shot to lift another piece of silverware during 2024/25 after signing his one-year extension.”

It’s not instantly obvious how United will fare next season. On one hand, they were more hampered by injury than anyone else in the league, and with the fitness issues potentially behind them with reinforcements arriving in the summer, Ten Hag’s side could be reinvigorated, ready to fight on three cup fronts while pushing for a Champions League place.

On the other, Ten Hag’s men so often looked lost on the field, allowing the second most shots (ahead of only Sheffield United) in all of Europe’s top five leagues combined last season, and those issues won’t simply dissipate with a few new players.

There’s also no guarantee that the fitness issues will be behind them, considering they’re guaranteed to play at least two more European games, and would expect to play anywhere between four and 11 more continental games next term.

To Ten Hag’s credit, however, he has won a trophy in each of his campaigns with Manchester United, and while the EFL Cup run of 22/23 wasn’t overly taxing, the FA Cup run included two huge scalps.

A good transfer window for Manchester United will see two new centre-backs, replacing Raphael Varane and providing back-up to the injury-struck Lisandro Martinez, a central midfielder to replace Casemiro, and a centre-forward to support Rasmus Hojlund.

Even then, there’s an issue at left-back, with Tyrell Malacia injured for 12 months, and Luke Shaw’s fitness extremely unreliable, while nobody has really nailed down the right-wing slot over the last two seasons.

There are question marks over a number of United’s Premier League rivals; Aston Villa will now face Champions League opposition; Tottenham, too, will have a much more congested fixture list; Newcastle may not be able to strengthen as much as they’d like over profit and sustainability rules, while Liverpool and Chelsea have new managers.

It’s too early to predict how the final Premier League table will look next May, but with a bit of luck, it’s not beyond United to win a third trophy in as many years.
