Erik ten Hag’s side is the only team to beat Arsenal in the league so far this season.
Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag was critical of his players in the wake of their defeat to Arsenal, insisting that all three goals could have been avoided.
The Red Devils are the only team to beat Arsenal in the league so far this season, went ahead at the Emirates Stadium through Marcus Rashford. However, the hosts hit back with goals from Eddie Nketiah and Bukayo Saka, before Lisandro Martinez made it 2-2 on the hour mark.
Nketiah completed the brace by scoring a winner, flicking the ball just beyond the reach of David de Gea.
The North London club are five points clear of Manchester City, and 11 ahead of Man United – with a game in hand on all those immediately below them.
“All the goals we conceded today are mistakes – it can’t happen,” Ten Hag told Sky Sports.
“Even last week [against Man City], we were so hard to beat in such situations. Today we were not. All three goals, we could have avoided. There were not a lot of open chances. We made mistakes which we cannot make. This game was decided by small details but also the decision-making.
“That is hard to accept and we have to learn from it. I want to win. It is not good enough. We want to be the number one, but not if we make mistakes. That is clear and what I told them.”
