Man United ‘one of the most dynamic and entertaining teams’ in the Premier League

Man United manager Erik ten Hag insists that his team are among “the most dynamic and entertaining” sides in the Premier League at the moment. 

The Red Devils were held by Burnley at Old Trafford on Saturday after Zeki Amdouni scored from the penalty spot late on to cancel out Antony’s opener.

Ten Hag felt Man United were the better side over the course of the game, but admitted they threw away the opportunity to get a second win on the bounce.

 

“We put ourselves in a winning position and over long courses of the game we dominated,” he told BBC Match of the Day.

“Only the second part of the first half where we conceded some chances, but the rest of the game was ours. We were in a winning position and we gave it away.”

The game turned into a ding-dong battle towards the end, with both sides having multiple chances to go and win it. Man United finished the game with 27 shots, but gave up 16 to the visitors.

 

“Every team gives up opportunities. But, when it is up to us, it is weird,” he admitted.

“We created loads of chances as well. We are one of the most dynamic and entertaining teams in the league at this moment. We are creating loads of chances by playing good football.

“It was unnecessary to lose control. We repaired this at half-time and second half was much better.”

 

The draw leaves Man United 12 points off the top four with just four games remaining, effectively ruling them out of qualifying for next season’s Uefa Champions League.

“That is the facts. It is not easy to get fourth when you’re so far behind,” Ten Hag continued.

“We needed to win. The past few weeks we’ve got in winning positions and then given it away. The gap is too big in this phase of the season.”
