Erik ten Hag has hailed Manchester United’s performance in the 2-0 win over Tottenham as the best of the season so far.
Man Utd were in fantastic form on Wednesday evening, barraging Tottenham’s goal and they deservedly earned all three points thanks to goals from Fred and Bruno Fernandes.
Speaking after the game to the club’s official website, Ten Hag expressed his delight at his side’s performance, stating: “It was the best performance of the team in the season. That is what you want. You want to see the progress in the team and that is what I’ve seen today but not only today. In many games, I’ve seen it.
“Sunday, we were all disappointed with Sunday’s game, but we had a clean sheet, as we did today. So we see now when you want to get success, you have to defend proactively and do it with 11. It’s what we are doing, acting as a team and it is always the base to get success in the season.
“I think this team has confidence.”
The Man Utd manager also took the time to praise Bruno Fernandes’s performance: “Bruno scored, eh? I know it will come with him. Sometimes, you have appearances where you don’t score but, all of a sudden, you’ve found the back of the net.
“I think, for Bruno, it is important that he scored a goal but he played a magnificent game today.”
