FC Copenhagen, the Danish champions, travel to Old Trafford on Tuesday and Ten Haag says his side must win.

“If you lose the first two games, you have to win,” Ten Haag told a press conference on Monday.

Ten Hague are expecting an emotional atmosphere at Old Trafford for United’s first home game since Sir Bobby Charlton’s death at the age of 86 was announced on Saturday.

“It’s always special, every night at Old Trafford, the fans are always behind us,” Ten Haag added. “Remember the last home match against Brentford, even when the game wasn’t going our way, they were behind us in the difficult moments.

“Fans are still with us in times of adversity and fighting. Of course tomorrow, the death of Sir Bobby Charlton – their hero, the legend – will be even more emotional.

“He’s up front at Old Trafford with Dennis Law and George Best. He’s always with us and they’re a huge inspiration for us every day in every game.”

After losing six of their first 10 games of the season, United won back-to-back matches with narrow victories over Brentford and Sheffield United.

Ten Hague’s side are looking to win three games in a row for the first time since May and full-back Diogo Dalot is hopeful their mini revival can be a springboard to help them turn their campaign around.

“Every game is an opportunity for us to show that we want to build confidence, build momentum,” said Dalt, who scored the winner against Sheffield United on Saturday.

“It’s easy to get that confidence when you win games and we’ve shown in these games when you don’t play the way you want to play you have to find a way to win. We’ve shown that quality, we’ve got great players who can show up and turn around. Can and can win games. We need to use these wins to build confidence and momentum.”
