WHAT HAPPENED? The England international claimed he was being used as a "scapegoat" after Ten Hag said he had been left out of the squad to face Arsenal because of his performance in training. Sancho has since deleted his social media posts, but still faces punishment from the club and has been put on an individual training programme.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: It has been reported that United have grown frustrated with Sancho's punctuality issues and ordered him to arrive at training an hour earlier than his team-mates. It has also been claimed that the club's players and staff have grown even more irritated after he hit out at Ten Hag following the defeat against Arsenal.

WHAT THEY SAID?: "Jadon Sancho will remain on a personal training programme away from the first-team group, pending resolution of a squad discipline issue," a statement from the club read.
