Manchester United manager Erik ten hag will serve a one-match ban after picking up his third booking of the season against Luton. 

The Red Devils secured a much-needed victory against Rob Edwards’ side at Old Trafford thanks to a rare goal by Victor Lindelof. 

They will look to make it two wins on the bounce when they travel to Goodison Park to take on Everton after the international break. 

But United will have to do it without Ten Hag on the touchline after he was shown a yellow in the dying minutes of the victory over Luton as he protested after a decision went against his side. 

The yellow card threshold was reduced from four to three this season in an attempt to reduce the amount of dissent from the dugout. 

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag will not be on the touchline against Everton in a fortnight

There was more bad news earlier in the match for United when Rasmus Hojlund and Christian Eriksen were forced off with injuries. 

But Ten Hag described it as ‘a good day’ as his side created a number of chances and kept a clean sheet.   

“It is a good day. We needed the win and we got it but we could make life more easy by scoring early on and getting a second,’ he said speaking to BBC Match of The Day. 

‘We created the chances but we didn’t score apart from one. I am happy with that and I am happy with the clean sheet. We had many chances before half time and you should net one of them. 

‘After half time, get the second and then the game is gone. Now you keep them alive and they can get an equaliser from balls dropping in the wrong place.’
