Erik ten Hag has warned Rasmus Hojlund, Kobbie Mainoo and Alejandro Garnacho that they still have room for improvement and must prove themselves in the biggest games.

United’s young trio starred in Sunday’s 3-0 win over West Ham when Garnacho scored twice and Hojlund became the youngest United player ever to score in four Premier League games in a row. 

Mainoo, meanwhile continues to go from strength to strength in his breakthrough season.

However, Ten Hag still isn’t satisfied and wants to see more from the three youngsters as they build towards a bright future at Old Trafford.

‘I think they enjoy to play together. There is adventure. They are a danger,’ said Ten Hag.
