Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag insists Christian Eriksen will thrive in his natural midfield position.

The Dane was deployed as a false-nine for Sunday's loss to Brighton at Old Trafford.

"We didn't have a typical number nine, I knew he did it at Ajax, a long time ago," said the boss. "Play as a striker.

"I think Christian Eriksen is the best in the midfield.

"It was also the idea [against Brighton] that he drops and gets in between the lines."
