EPL: Man Utd in best form of the season – Erik ten Hag

Erik ten Hag

Erik ten Hag praised Manchester United’s performance as the best of the season thus far during the 2-0 victory over Tottenham.

On Wednesday night, Man Utd was in excellent form, barraging Tottenham’s goal, and they deservedly earned all three points thanks to goals from Bruno Fernandes and Fred.

Ten Hag expressed his joy at his team’s performance on the club’s official website after the game, writing: “It was the best performance of the team in the season. That is what you want. You want to see the progress in the team and that is what I’ve seen today but not only today. In many games, I’ve seen it.

“Sunday, we were all disappointed with Sunday’s game, but we had a clean sheet, as we did today. So we see now when you want to get success, you have to defend proactively and do it with 11. It’s what we are doing, acting as a team and it is always the base to get success in the season.

“I think this team has confidence.”

The Man Utd manager also took the time to praise Bruno Fernandes’s performance: “Bruno scored, eh? I know it will come with him. Sometimes, you have appearances where you don’t score but, all of a sudden, you’ve found the back of the net.

“I think, for Bruno, it is important that he scored a goal but he played a magnificent game today.”
