‘We didn’t deserve to win’, admits Ten Hag after draw at Brentford

Manchester United manager Eric Ten Hag admitted that they did not deserve to win against Brentford on Saturday.

Brentford and Manchester United drew 1-1 on Saturday night after a late Mason Mount strike was canceled out by Kristoffer Ajer’s goal in the 99th minute.

Man United is eight points behind fifth-placed side Tottenham with nine games to go. They are also 11 points behind Aston Villa, who have played a game more.

“We didn’t deserve to win but if you are winning you have to take this. Normally we are good in those circumstances,” said Ten Hag.

In terms of aggressiveness Brentford were better but when you are winning the game you should bring it over the line.

When you don’t play well you still have to win and we did it, almost. We didn’t play well but there was spirit and fight but not enough.

There are still many games to go. Of course the points could be more expensive by the end. It should have been three points. By the end we will know. It could be an important point.

Don’t lower the performance from Brentford, I’ve seen them against Man City, against Liverpool. But we should have done this better.

“I’m not happy with the performance, there is no misunderstanding. We should be consistent in the way we take a game and perform.”

Manchester United next face Chelsea and Liverpool in the Premier League.
