Erik Ten Hag saw some positives from the game, according to him, the opening minutes of the game were good for the Red Devils despite the result.

"Very disappointed with the result. We played quite well in the first half with many chances, but we had two setbacks, starting with their goal and then the disallowed goal. Absolutely [the system worked]. The first 20 minutes were very good. We have to stick to the plan [despite the goal] because it worked well. We had quite a few chances. Definitely that losing three of the first five fixtures is something that bothers me, but also I have to see the way we play. Finally, it is about character, we have to see how strong we are, stick together."

He also said that the team will have to analyse the game before the next match against Bayern Munich.
