kneejerk reactions are normal at Manchester United, says Christian Eriksen

Manchester United star Christian Eriksen says they have gotten used to kneejerk reactions after playing for the Red Devils.

Man United who suffered a 2-0 defeat at Tottenham last week, secured a 3-2 comeback victory against 10-man Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

After the match, Eriksen who scored the first goal, said Manchester United players expect kneejerk reactions.

Asked how important it was to win after last week result, Eriksen said: “Yeah, this week. Maybe next week they’ll say something else and then the week after they’ll change their mind again.

“It’s how football goes and definitely here. I think everybody knows that if you lose one game everything is changed, everything is the worst thing that can happen.

“And if you win, it’s ‘oh, it’s normal’, so, yeah, it’s just how it is at this club and we expect that as players.

“Obviously we try to do our best to win every game, none of us like losing and we try to do it in the best possible way.”

Eriksen on Hojlund

Eriksen was also asked about his Denmark team-mate, striker Rasmus Hojlund who joined Man United for a £64million fee.

“He’s a guy who holds his ground,” Eriksen told club media. “He doesn’t back down from anything.

“He’s really a front-foot guy, who is aggressive and really attack-minded. But, at the same time, a nice guy outside of football.

I will definitely (pass on my experience of English football) but he will definitely see it for himself, that the Premier League is different compared to any other league he’s been at before.

“So, he’s going to have to adapt, but I’m sure he will adapt quickly.”

Forest manager Steve Cooper was asked about the future of Brennan Johnson, who has been linked with Chelsea and Tottenham.

“Brennan’s, for me, a top young player,” manager Steve Cooper said. “He had some great moments in the first half, showed his real quality on a big stage and there’s naturally going to be talk and interest, speculation, whatever it may be.

“My focus is just on him day to day and helping him get ready for the next game, try to get the best out of him in training and the analysis side.

“Until I get told something will be different with any of the players, that is what we will do, so it’s not something I’ve really thought about, to be honest.”
