Erik ten Hag defended De Gea following his error that cost United the game against Westham.
Manchester United were shocked following the 1-0 defeat they suffered against Westham in their bid to end in the top4 zone.
Erik ten Hag says his Manchester United players cannot feel sorry for themselves as they continue to hunt down Champions League football next season, following a second Premier League defeat in a row.
Despite dominating the opening stages against West Ham at the London Stadium, the Hammers took a 27th-minute lead through Said Benrahma.
The Reds struck the post moments before and after Benrahma’s strike, and although we forged further openings thereafter, we could not get the equalizer we needed to get back into the contest, eventually falling to a 1-0 defeat.
“Of course, we are really disappointed, as you see. So, the game, I think we started well. I think in the first half we played well and we created good opportunities. We hit twice the post, we had many more opportunities, and then one mistake – it was a turnaround in the game. And then you’re following effects. And the second half, we couldn’t bounce back.”
WE WOULDN’T BE HERE WITHOUT DAVID
“I think we all know, David knows also, it’s a mistake, but he’s a brilliant goalkeeper. We may not be in this position when he didn’t show this shape throughout the season. Mistakes are part of football, and we have to live with them, and we have to bounce back as a team.”
