EPL: Erik ten Hag speaks on Manchester United struggles amid

Manchester United manager Erik Ten Hag on Saturday evening opined that his team gave their all but it was not ultimately enough to secure a win against Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium as the Red Devils' winless run extends in the Premier League.

Bruno Fernandez grabbed a brace sandwiched between strikes by Dominic Solanke and Justin Kluivert for the Cherries who themselves are fighting hard to avoid a relegation dogfight as the 2023/2024 Premier League soon draws to an end.  

The Dutchman spoke with the media in a post-match news conference after the game as he reflected on what he did right and wrong at the away ground.

“We know we have to win,” the boss told Sky Sports as he delivered his verdict on what he saw from the dugout.

 “We want to battle, to compete for the top positions. You see the game, we struggled first half, [Harry] Maguire was struggling but he overcame because we needed him to.

“The second half was much better, the good thing is we fought back twice from a losing position. The team spirit is good. By the end, it could’ve been more composed and calm and we could’ve played more chances out.

“The opponent was struggling because they gave so much energy in the first half and there were so many gaps but we didn’t benefit from it.”

Ten Hag also lavished special praise for Bruno Fernandes, who has now scored three goals on the trot.

“Scoring twice, very creative, it’s true he gives a lot of energy to the team,” he said. “He is acting as a captain, bringing the energy and we are very pleased with this.

“We are all disappointed but he expresses that feeling. We have to win our games and we have dropped too many unnecessary points in the last few games.”

United's next commitment is the FA Cup game next weekend against Coventry City at Wembley Stadium.
