Manchester United are set to receive a major boost for their game against Bayern Munich on Wednesday as Erik ten Hag prepares for a crucial encounter.

The Dutchman has started the season poorly in the Premier League with three defeats from a possible five league matches and will be hoping a return to European football will be the kickstart to their faltering season.

United haven’t faced Bayern Munich since the UEFA Champions League knockout game back in 2014 and will know all too well the dangers of their frontman Harry Kane.

The Englishman was linked to United this summer but could well be lining up against the Red Devils on Wednesday.

United receive huge boost

Despite the task facing the Red Devils, United will receive a huge boost and it involves Bayern Munich’s quarter-final clash with Manchester City last season.

The former Chelsea boss was sent to the stands after disagreeing with a decision made by referee on the night Clement Turpin.

Tuchel was banned from the touchline for the reverse fixture and will now also miss this clash against Ten Hag’s United according to the Daily Mail.

Significant boost for Ten Hag

This could well be a significant boost for the Red Devils as the German boss clearly has a big influence over his group of players so missing that voice on the touchline may well affect just how the team plays.

The Red Devils will know, even without Tuchel, that this game could well be a banana skin for them and will hope they catch the German side on an off day.

Bayern’s clash with United will take place on Wednesday, September 20, with kick-off at 8 pm. A win for Ten Hag’s side in Germany could well kickstart their season and silence all the critics and doubters of a team who have improved so much over the past 12 months under the Dutchman’s tutelage.
