News » Premier League news » Manchester United news
Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has slammed his players following an unacceptable performance against Aston Villa.
The Red Devils were completely dominated by the Villans on the road earlier today and ended up suffering a 3-1 Premier League defeat.
The first two goals were conceded after 11 minutes. United were offered a route back into the game with an own goal before the break.
However, it was rather shortlived as the Villans scored soon after the interval.
Speaking after the 3-1 loss, Ten Hag said that his side deserved to lose against the Villans, particularly after the nature of the third goal conceded.
He said: “We lost the game at the start of the first half, start of the second half. That’s not acceptable. You have to be ready for the game, we were not.”
Despite the loss, the Red Devils are only three points behind the top four, but they are a staggering 11 points behind current league leaders Arsenal.
