Erik ten Hag happy with Manchester United’s resilience in Aston Villa win – Man United News And Transfer News

Erik ten Hag was pleased with his team’s performance against a strong Aston Villa.

Manchester United came from a goal down to win 4-2.

United were lethargic in the first half but improved towards the end of the game.

Ten Hag mentioned some key areas for improvement.

In his post-match interview, he stated:

“We controlled the game in the first half pressing well, we gained a lot of possession but then we did things wrong.”

“Badly in transition, missing the pass, a step too late going from behind, so we missed a lot of opportunities.”

“They [Villa] play with a high line so you have to pass the ball from behind.”

“We had quite a bit of success in the second half. The problem in the first part was that we had too many touches and we lost the moment, that’s why we brought in Christian Eriksen”.

“Happy with that resiliency.”

“That’s what we need and we have to show in every game. He was very disappointed and angry on Sunday that we didn’t fight.”

“We were careless, especially in defense and United players always have to show 100% discipline.”

“What we have to do better, we have to play at a high intensity because that’s what the best teams do.”

“We have taken a step in the right direction, but we have to find the moments to have more composure on the ball and find the moments where we can accelerate.”

The Carabao Cup could be a good chance for United to pick up some silver, especially with most of the top teams eliminated.
