Gary Neville has laid out the challenge Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag faces to impress Sir Jim Ratcliffe. United’s form has been on an upward trajectory since their dramatic comeback win over Aston Villa on Boxing Day; the first game after Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s purchase of a 25 per cent stake was announced by the club, which is still subject to Premeir League approval.

An away win over Villa in the reverse fixture over the weekend helped to significantly close the gap on their rivals in the race for Champions League football.

A late Scott McTominay header ensured that United had picked up 13 points in their last six league games, as well as advancing in the FA Cup.

Momentum appears to be with United as they close in on fifth place - which could mean Champions League qualification - and club legend Gary Neville believes that is what is required for Ten Hag to prove himself to Ratcliffe, who will help oversee football operations at United.
