Premier League Ten Hag gutted with Man United display in Brentford draw

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag was naturally disappointed following their 1-1 draw with Brentford in the Premier League.

With the hosts having dominated play for large parts, Mason Mount’s stoppage-time strike seemed to have ensured all three points for United on a tricky evening in the capital. But in what remained of the additional period, Kristoffer Ajer tucked home the Bees’ equaliser after Ivan Toney had teed up the former Celtic man.

“We made some mistakes and we have to talk about this of course. We should act differently in that occasion where we conceded the equaliser, we should have acted differently in that situation,” said Ten Hag.

“As I say if you are in stoppage time and you score that goal, which maybe we didn’t deserve, then I have to make compliments to the team that they hang [on] in the game. They were fighting but I did think Brentford wanted it more during the whole course of the game but we have to take it over the whole game, take it [beyond] the time.”

On the performance of goalkeeper Andre Onana, Ten Hag said: “I thought we were good in certain situations and when we were winning, we didn’t deserve it, but we should take the winning and do so more often.

“We were fighting and we created some great chances and Andre Onana was fantastic tonight. Rasmus Hojlund had a great chance. When you make the winning goal that is when you must bring it over the line. I am very pleased for Mason [Mount] but I also feel sorry for him as it should have been the winner.”
