"So long as we maintain getting outcomes"Ten Hag angrily refuses to simply accept United's big deficit


Eric ten Hag has inexplicably claimed he doesn't thoughts his workforce giving up 31 pictures so long as they get the best end result.

Manchester United's protection has been suspect all season as they’ve conceded a ridiculous 15 targets of their Champions League group.

Regardless of a powerful 4-3 win over Liverpool, they conceded 25 probabilities, that means they’ve given their opponent 56 probabilities within the final two video games.

Though his targets in opposition to Column are good for Premier League requirements, followers are extra involved with what number of probabilities the workforce concedes.

Brentford simply beat United final night time and it was a miracle it took till the 99th minute for them to attain.

As relayed Individuals's IndividualBrentford completed the sport with 85 touches within the United field, probably the most by any workforce within the league within the final 5 years.

Commenting in his post-match press convention (90 minutes into the sport), the Dutch boss appeared worryingly detached concerning the state of affairs.

When requested if he was involved concerning the variety of probabilities created by Brentford, he replied: “So long as we get outcomes, no.

“Let me clarify it once more: we defended poorly at occasions and since Brentford are very direct we misplaced numerous second balls and we needed to defend the field.

“We had an amazing goalkeeper, he was improbable tonight, we now have to say that too. Our outcomes since January have been fairly constant, however we concede pictures, however we don't concede that many targets.”

The worrying factor is that the previous Ajax coach doesn’t perceive that if you happen to repeatedly give so many probabilities to the opposition to attain, outcomes is not going to come.

Moreover, whereas outcomes have been good in 2024, performances haven’t been good, with the Pink Devils being often outclassed by their rivals.

Statistics verify this.

Individuals's Individual has revealed that United goalkeeper Andre Onana has needed to make extra saves than anybody else within the league besides Luton City's Thomas Kaminsky and West Ham's Alphonse Areola.

On the floor this appears good for Onana's improved kind however the fact is {that a} Manchester United goalkeeper shouldn’t be examined so many occasions in a single season.

What's disappointing is that this pattern is getting worse because the Pink Devils confronted 181 pictures on purpose in 2024, probably the most of any workforce within the English top-flight.

What's extra, Manchester United has trailed in 16 Premier League video games this season. The Previous Trafford workforce has solely performed 29 video games, so in additional than half the matches, Ten Hag's aspect are going through extra pictures than they’re creating.

That is comprehensible while you journey to the Etihad or Anfield however at residence to Wolves and Everton the story is extremely completely different.

One can think about {that a} coach with Ten Hag's expertise and CV in all probability has a difficulty with the variety of probabilities created in opposition to his beleaguered workforce. However his public opinion will give him much less assist from followers.

Nevertheless, the truth that he isn’t doing something about it would seemingly be the ultimate nail in his coffin with regard to his Previous Trafford fortunes.
