“We lacked belief from the start,” Ten Hag said. “In the last five games we had a strong belief, today it was the other way around.”

United had won four straight league games going into the derby match on Sunday at the Etihad Stadium, including triumphs against Arsenal and Liverpool. Erling Haaland and Phil Foden both scored three goals, but City won easily despite the fact that the margin of victory did not accurately reflect the gap between the two erstwhile rivals.

 

“We lacked belief from the start,”Ten Hag said. “In the last five games we had a strong belief, today it was the other way around.”

“We are not defending front foot and we let them play. In possession we were not brave enough, made mistakes and bad decisions — then you get hammered. There are never excuses in top football, you have to bring results, but it is normal in our process we will have setbacks. We just have to learn from it.” he added.

Ten Hag also clarified why big-money signing Casemiro was once again passed over for a starting position and why Anthony Martial, a substitute, rather than Cristiano Ronaldo, was the player he turned to in the second half to attempt and get United back in the game.

“I wouldn’t bring him (Ronaldo) in out of respect for his big career,” Ten Hag added. “Anthony Martial needed the minutes and he scored two goals.”

“When we signed him (Casemiro) we started to win. It is about the team, and the team was doing really well. Scott McTominay has been performing well, but I am sure Casemiro will be important for us in the long run, and find himself in the team in the short term. That will come in a natural way.” he concluded.
