Erik ten Hag after the defeat against Brighton: It's annoying

Manchester United failed to celebrate vs Brighton. Erik ten Hag's team looked great in the first half, but the second half was a completely different story. After they did not realize their chances at the beginning of the match, the penalty came in the last minute of the match, when McAllister scored from the penalty spot, after Luke Shaw played with his hand.

This is exactly what Erik ten Hag talked about at the press conference after the match: "He (Shaw) played very well but the annoying thing is the free-kick before is never a free-kick and I have seen really bad tackles today, sometimes without whistles as well," Ten Hag said, ,as quoted by manchestereveningnews.co.uk "Every attack you make with perspective they kick you and then it's a block but a fair block, it's a free-kick, it's a corner.

Then, of course, disappointed, handball, dying seconds and you can't react anymore. It's not about me to give a judgement about the referee. We lost this game, we made a mistake in the end, we did not take our chances but, as I said, there are some disappointments."

The Dutchman emphasized that Manchester United must use their chances.

This match was an ideal opportunity for them, but it seems that they were not focused enough in the key moments. This will only further influence United's search for a quality striker who can score many goals in the season.


"Every defeat is a disappointment but in the end when you lose in the last seconds that is of course, annoying, and I think the first minute sums everything up. We created a good chance, we were not clinical enough, then in the attack after we concede a big chance by a giveaway from us (when Victor Lindelof's pass was intercepted by Kaoru Mitoma), a ball in the head of David (de Gea).

In the end, we also gave away the goal. It's annoying because if you can't win because you don't finish your opportunities then don't lose."
