And the result confirmed the Red Devils’ status as a Champions League competitor for next season, leaving bitter rivals Liverpool out of luck.

Following the Old Trafford thrashing, Ten Hag was spotted out on a bike ride in Cheshire on Friday.

With the summer fast approaching, he was seen with his jacket draped over the front of his bike.

He donned a long-sleeve light grey shirt, paired with black trainers and dark grey trousers.

However, despite good progress in his first year, he believes there is still much work to be done.

This begins in the summer, with Ten Hag begging Man Utd bosses to get him “better players”.

Speaking after the win over Frank Lampard‘s struggling Chelsea, he told Sky Sports: “It is a good base to build on but standards have to go up and demands have to rise.

“We have to work in the summer with this squad but we also have to strengthen in the window with this squad.

“We want to compete for the title but it has to be realistic. It is what is there.

“Now, we are far away so there is a lot of work to do but we need better players if want to compete for the highest.”

Harry Kane tops the list of transfer targets for United, with Ten Hag said to be “obsessed” with the Tottenham ace.

However, knowing Daniel Levy‘s tough negotiating skills, United have drawn up a six-man shortlist of strikers if Kane proves to be unattainable.

Elsewhere, stars such as Declan Rice and Mason Mount have been linked with moves.

Defender Kim Min-jae and Jermaine Frimpong are other stars tipped to be targeted by the Red Devils this summer.

Ten Hag has been spotted out on his bike before.

He was spotted enjoying a cycle with wife Bianca early in the season, before being pictured out and about on Valentine’s Day.
