Erik ten Hag: "The main problem of our team is.."

Despite Manchester United's 2:3 win over Omonia, Erik ten Hag was not satisfied with some things in his team's game. "We have to improve every day but also sometimes you fall back and then you have to get up again.

And that is what I demand from my squad.
And so we have to carry on and every time learn the lessons and give the maximum, because only good for me is good enough - and at this moment, by far, we are not that good.
We have seen on Sunday and we have to do much better.

I think the main problem is, and that is what we did in games before much better - intensity. We have to bring every game the intensity on the pitch.
That was the big difference between City and us, so that is the demand to our squad, to all of our players, you have to take responsibility for that."

- he said, as quoted by eurosport.com He was not happy with the momentum when they conceded a goal. "The first 30, 35 minutes we played quite well, the only thing was we didn't score a goal.
When you score a goal, you make your life easy.

So we didn't but when you concede a goal, it was the worst ten minutes of the game from us.After half-time I think we dealt well with the setback."

Marcus Rashford

Marcus Rashford, who was great in last night's match, thinks they made big mistakes.

"Job done, but we would have liked to have played better. We didn't defend badly, but we made mistakes,” he told BT Sport. "The first 35 minutes until they scored we were playing well, we just could have got in behind them more.

Then when he made the subs he [Erik ten Hag] wanted us to be more dynamic, take chances going forward and score goals”. Rashford also had words of praise for Anthony Martial. "Left side is probably more natural for me, but I like playing both [left wing and centre forward] and helping the team.

If we have got injuries you never know what might happen, where you might be needed to play.
"He [Martial] is a massive player for us, has been for a long time. When he is happy and at it he is an unbelievable player. We've both been injured, him longer than me, so it is good for him to get minutes and make an impact."
