There has never been a more painful defeat for Manchester United in its illustrious history than this one. The team was defeated by Liverpool by a score of 7-0. A visibly disappointed Erik ten Hag was seen after the match as he looked back on the game in a retrospective manner;
"I think we played a decent first-half.
One mistake in organisation just before half-time. Second-half it was just not us. It was not our standards. We didn't play as a team. It was unprofessional. Yes [I am angry]. Definitely,” Ten Hag told BBC Sport as quoted by eurosport.com
"I am surprised because I have seen the last weeks and months this team is resilient and has a winning attitude.
Second-half we didn't have a winning attitude at all. We didn't stick to the plan and we didn't do our jobs.
We didn't track back and it was really unprofessional. We have seen in the past we can bounce back. After Brentford, after Manchester City.
This is definitely a strong setback and is unacceptable. I'm really disappointed and angry about it.
It is a reality check. We have to take this strong."
Bruno Fernandes on the match
Dissatisfaction with the match was also expressed by Bruno Fernandes.
There was a lack of ability on the part of the Portuguese to demonstrate his true game. During the second half, United's players looked disastrous, and it will take some time before they are able to recover from this loss. "It is very frustrating, disappointing, sad because it is a really bad result.
We came here with a different mindset before the game,” Fernandes told Sky Sports.
"The first-half was really good from ourselves, we had a lot of chances. We controlled most of the first-half I think, they didn't create that much. The Dutchman will have to work hard with the players to recover from this defeat.
