Manchester United started preseason on July 12, during the three games they have played, the team has looked solid, as they are unbeaten and have not conceded any goals, so Ten Hag should be very happy to see his team playing like that. 

The Red Devils are currently on tour in the United States, the club will play 4 games in a period of 10 days, so the rotation and playing time of the starters, will be key to see how the team will perform when the Premier League starts; also these games help the coach to give opportunity to younger players who have not received much participation. 

One of the promising young players who has shone in this pre-season has been the midfielder Kobbie Mainoo, who has been playing with United since the academy, in these two games has shown a great level that has impressed the coach, for that reason he would have decided to leave him in the first team for this season. 

This is undoubtedly a golden opportunity for Kobbie, which he will undoubtedly make the most of, as he has been doing, this also opens the door to other young players who are looking for the opportunity to move up in their career and that Erik Ten Hag is always willing to give them playing time so that they can gain experience. 

Kobbie Mainoo better than Declan Rice

During the summer Manchester United were looking to strengthen their midfield, English player Declan Rice was one of the main options before the transfer window opened, however, Arsenal managed to snatch him away, paying £100 million for his signature; now during the pre-season match that both teams faced, Rice could not shine and his performance went unnoticed, meanwhile young star Kobbie Mainoo continued with his great performances, showing why he was the one chosen by Ten Hag.
