Man Utd manager ten Hag returning Eriksen to midfield after Brighton loss
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."
