Erik ten Hag condemns ‘unreliable’ Man Utd team following crushing defeat against Bournemouth

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag is disappointed with his squad’s lack of consistency after they suffered a humiliating 3-0 defeat to Bournemouth. The Cherries outperformed United from start to finish, securing their first-ever victory at Old Trafford. This came just days after United’s impressive victory over Chelsea, leaving Ten Hag frustrated by the inconsistency of his team.

In a post-match press conference, Ten Hag expressed his disappointment at the performance and the failure to maintain consistency. He pointed out that the team’s inability to replicate their positive results consistently is a major concern.

Despite putting in a lot of effort to turn the game around, United failed to capitalize on their attacking opportunities. Ten Hag acknowledged that the squad needs to work together to improve their level of consistency. The manager took responsibility for the poor start to the game and emphasized the need for improvement moving forward.
“I expected something different, I hoped before the game you can build on from the performance and result from Chelsea, so it’s very disappointing, the way we started the game, Then I think a long time we did everything to get back in the game, we get one shot, almost a penalty, then in the build-up we make a mistake and we are not good enough in the rest of defence and that is disappointing,” said Ten Hag.
Looking ahead, Ten Hag stressed the importance of being prepared for every game, particularly in a league as competitive as the Premier League. He highlighted the need for the team to be ready from the start and be consistent in their performances in order to compete at the highest level.

The defeat to Bournemouth saw United slip behind in the opening stages when Bruno Fernandes’ pass from the back was intercepted by Lewis Cook, leading to an early Bournemouth goal. Bournemouth doubled their lead mid-way through the second half before adding a third shortly after. United missed the chance to move level on points with fourth-placed Manchester City ahead of their trip to Luton Town.

In conclusion, United’s lack of consistency and failure to maintain their performance levels is a concern for Erik Ten Hag. The manager emphasized the need for improvement and urged the squad to work together to achieve better results in the future. As United looks to bounce back from this defeat, their performance and consistency will be closely scrutinized in the coming games.
