Man Utd manager Erik ten Hag has explained the club’s recent defeat to Brighton at Old Trafford on Saturday.
The Red Devils were hoping to bounce back from their loss to Arsenal before the international break, but they landed in another defeat as their former striker Danny Welbeck put the Seagulls in the early lead.
Pascal Gross and Joao Pedro extended the Seagulls’ lead to 3-0 before Mejbri Hannibal managed to score one back for the Red Devils.
Ten Hag, speaking to Sky Sports after the game, said: “We are disappointed. But it was a really small margin. We are so close against a good side. The first 20 minutes was all ours. We created chances but didn’t score.
“We conceded a goal with their first attack. We then had a period in the game that was quite difficult, we fought to get a goal, and it was disallowed. So it is difficult in this period. It has not fallen on our side, but we will fight back, and if we stick together, play as a team, and stick to the rules, we will return.”
