Premier League: Why Man Utd lost 2-0 to Tottenham – Ten Hag

Manchester United boss, Erik ten Hag, has reflected on their 2-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

The Red Devils opened their Premier League campaign with a 1-0 win over Wolves, but were found wanting in their first away fixture.

Pape Matar Sarr’s finish and a Lisandro Martinez own goal ensured Spurs claimed all three points.

Ten Hag, speaking to Match of the Day, said: “We created the chances, the first half was completely ours and then you have to score. We created the chances but we didn’t put them in the net.

“Also we deserved a penalty. We didn’t get it, so you have to accept it. That’s the way the game is. So it was not our day.”
