Ten Hag urges Manchester United to ‘get the job done’ against Chelsea

Erik ten Hag has called on Manchester United to ‘get the job done’ and secure Champions League qualification against Chelsea.

United face Chelsea in the Premier League on Thursday evening and can confirm a top four finish and Champions League football for next season with a point at Old Trafford.


Ahead of the clash, Ten Hag was asked on the importance of a return to Europe’s elite and urged his side to ‘get the job done’.

“Yeah, if you make that question you already have your answer,” Ten Hag said at his pre-match press conference.

“It’s clear. We want to win every game, that is what we do all season so tomorrow we want to do the same, we want to win the game, play dominant football and get the job done.

“We want to compete with the best, then you have to be in the Champions League. We want to compete with the best and be in the Champions League.

“In the Premier League, you have to be one of the first four, that’s not easy, many are competing for it, many think they should be in and we are one of them.”

Ten Hag’s first season has seen United reach both domestic cup finals and close in on Champions League qualification. The Dutchman was asked whether his team are ahead of schedule in their development, following a successful season to date.

“First, we have to win the game tomorrow and get the job done. Then it’s about judgement from others if it’s a good, bad or normal performance.

“We are in a project, we want to go back and win trophies, we win one trophy but we want more trophies, compete with the best, we are still in a journey but we think we are in the right direction but it can always be better. Because good is not good enough.”
