The Hag after another Man Utd win: We’re still far from the best teams

Although Manchester United beat Arsenal 3-1 in the English league on Sunday and extended their winning streak to four games, their manager Erik ten Hag is not overestimating their current form. According to the Dutch coach, the “Red Devils” are still far from the best Premier League teams.

United had a disastrous start to the new season. They lost to Brighton 1:2 at home and suffered a sensational debacle 0:4 at Brentford. But then the Manchester team got up with a 2:1 victory over arch-rival Liverpool, then beat Southampton and Leicester equally 1:0, and on Sunday also dealt with the previous 100% leader of the table, Arsenal.

“We are at the beginning of the process, we are still far from the best teams and title aspirants. We have to start doing things better than we are doing now. We need to add more so that we can celebrate trophies at the end.” Ten Hag told reporters.

“I’m very happy that we beat a very strong team. Arsenal also played well. We showed a winning spirit, our mentality really improved.” added the former coach of Ajax Amsterdam, whose charges jumped to fifth place after the sixth round.

Marcus Rashford contributed two goals to the home triumph over Arsenal, another offensive player and debutant Antony, who transferred from Ajax for almost 100 million euros, opened the scoring. “They both played great, they were a constant threat to the opponent. I know that our attack is very strong, has creativity and speed. They started together for the first time and I am very happy for such a performance.” praised Ten Haag.

His counterpart Mikel Arteta was disappointed by the London team’s first loss in the league season. “We didn’t win because we lacked discipline at certain moments and weren’t cool enough in front of the United goal.” the Arsenal manager said.

He didn’t like referee Paul Tierney disallowing Gabriel Martinelli’s 12th-minute lead after the video referee intervened for Martin Ödegaard’s foul on Christian Eriksen. “I didn’t see the replay, but I was told there was only a passing contact. But we’re not going to do anything about it now, it’s too late.” added Arteta.
