Christian Eriksen has named which Manchester United player he loves playing with and told his teammates how they can compete with Man City and Liverpool.

Under Erik ten Hag, United is gradually becoming reliable team, and according to Eriksen, the players are “beginning to believe” that they can compete.

The Red Devils started the season with two losses, but they have since won six of their last nine games to move up to sixth in the Premier League standings, one point outside the top four.

Man United drew 1-1 with on Saturday and it was Casemiro who scored the injury-time equaliser to deny ’s team the three points.

Eriksen believes he is not surprised Casemiro had an immediate impact at Old Trafford and is enjoying his new midfield partnership with the Brazilian ace.

‘I think you can see in the games – we like playing together,’ Eriksen said ahead of Manchester United’s clash with Sheriff Tiraspol on Thursday night.

‘Of course we’re still getting to know one and other on and off the pitch, but he’s nice guy off the pitch as well, and on the pitch I think football knowledge people know he’s been playing games like this for last eight years at Real Madrid. ‘So I’m not surprised he can cope. It’s lovely to play with him.’

Eriksen sees encouraging signs at Old Trafford, where former Ajax head coach Ten Hag is beginning to have significant impact. United has gone five years without winning title, but Eriksen is optimistic.

‘I have the feeling the players feel it and the fans do,’ Eriksen said. ‘I even think you guys [the media] believe it bit. I think you can see the development in the games of how we play, there’s bit of a rising. I think we’re starting to believe it.

‘Obviously there’s lot of things that we need to do better, things we can change, but I think overall we’re on the right path.’

The problem for United is they are competing not only with current Premier League leaders Arsenal but Man City and Liverpool, who have been two of the best clubs in the world in recent years.

Asked how United can get to the of City & Liverpool, Eriksen added: ‘I think they’ve played together for many years, had the consistency for many years. lot of new guys have come in here. It’s up to us to show that consistency to out there, stay out there and not get many downs. We need to show our consistency before we can compare.’
