Why is Erik ten Hag not on the touchline for Man Utd against Everton?

MANCHESTER UNITED will be hoping to pile further misery on an Everton side who were recently docked TEN points – but they’ll have to do it without Erik ten Hag on the touchline.

The Red Devils return from the international break off the back of a marginal 1-0 win against Premier League strugglers Luton.

And they’ll be expected to take another three points from the Toffees following their recent FFP punishment.

But Sean Dyche’s men could be fired up for the match as they will be aware that there is not much room for error.

Furthermore, things just got tougher for United due to Ten Hag falling victim to a major FA rule change.

The Dutch tactician was booked by referee Graham Scott after complaining about the award of a throw-in during the 1-0 victory over Luton at Old Trafford.

That follows the 53-year-old’s cautions against Tottenham as well as Arsenal earlier in the campaign and that led to a one-match ban.

In 2019, the FA made some key changes to disciplinary rules and that included yellow as well as red cards for coaching staff.

What has Erik ten Hag said about the ban?

The United gaffer has accepted responsibility for arguing with the officials during the Luton fixture.

“We have a very competent coaching staff and they will take over, and of course up to a certain point, I can be involved.
