Erik ten Hag's reactions after the draw with Crystal Palace

Manchester United failed to win the match against Crystal Palace. Although Erik ten Hag's team had the advantage, a goal in the 90th minute by Crystal Palace was enough for just a point. The Dutch believes that his team had to score a second goal in order to decide the match.

“We had control of the game. We had to invest more in the second. At 2-0 it would be over. Then you get hammered with an unlucky moment. We were 1-0 up. In the second half we had a lot of space to kill them and go for the second.

I never saw we really went for the second goal. I have to criticise my team. Go for the second."- Erik ten Hag said, as quoted by Erik ten Hag thinks it was a penalty on Scott McTominay. Casemiro's absence will be a big shock for his team.

"From my perspective [they should have had a penalty] but VAR and the referee make the decision. We have to accept it. The last time we beat Arsenal without Casemiro so this time we need to do the same. The booking was instinctive.

He missed the ball. It’s quite clear it could have been a dangerous situation. He wanted to stop it and that was his reaction”.

Bruno Fernandes on the match

Bruno Fernandes is not happy with the final outcome. “We knew it was tough to play here, we could even have lost.

We are not happy with a draw and should have taken our chances to close the game. A great goal at the end. We missed chances, one pass more or the cross and pass was not good enough. We are not happy with one point but we have to look forward now.

We have to understand we are still doing good things”. Patrick Vieira thinks his team deserved a point. “We deserved the point. Really challenging against a really good side. We found it difficult to close them down but we managed to stay in the game.

In the last 15 minutes we put pressure on them. Michael scored that free-kick. It was tough, we worked hard and we got rewarded”.
