Eric Ten Hag tears into his Manchester United players after losing to Villa

With Unai Emery taking over as manager of Villa for the first time, United manager Erik Ten Hag must have been anticipating some type of new manager bounce.

However, his post-game analysis would also indicate that he was not at all surprised by his team’s sluggish start, which resulted in them falling behind 2-0 after 30 minutes.

Speaking after the game, Ten Hag said: “After a long time this has happened, I said it was up to us.

“We didn’t keep the ball, we didn’t get the right organisation, didn’t follow the rules and lost battles.”

Since taking over at Old Trafford, Ten Hag has developed a reputation as a strict manager, as evidenced by the expulsion of Cristiano Ronaldo from the team last month for refusing to play off the bench.

You can only assume that after his players disobeyed his orders at Villa Park, he will now punish them severely.

The second bad news for United is that Villa will be their opponent once more in four days as they were paired up in the Carabao Cup.

After United’s Europa League match against Real Sociedad on Thursday, Harry Maguire was left on the sidelines.

However, players like Ollie Watkins, Jacob Ramsey, and Leon Bailey caused problems to Ten Hag’s defence.

Bailey’s pace set up the first goal, and after that it was panic mode for a while until Luke Shaw fouled Ramsey and Lucas Digne scored from the resulting free kick.

After 65 minutes, Ten Hag made three substitutions, removing Shaw, Donny van de Beek, and Alejandro Garnacho. This move spoke for itself.

It meant that this United team became the first in the Premier League’s 27-year history to lose at Villa Park.
