Manchester United drew 1-1 against Brentford in the Premier League yesterday in a game that Brentford deserved to win. Manchester United's goalkeeper Andre Onana faced 31 shots against Brentford as the Bees dominated most of the match.

However, Brentford equalized in the 99th minute thanks to an Ajer goal. Man United fans were upset with the performance despite the team gaining a point from a game many believed they did not deserve. Erik Ten Hag spoke after the game, and his comments on his team infuriated many Manchester United fans, and some questioned if he should continue.

Ten Hag was not happy to let go of the victory despite the poor performance. Ten Hag said, "We shouldn’t have gave it away when we were winning. So that’s disappointing. We were winning in the end, maybe it wasn't deserved but then you have to take the three points so the it is very disappointing to draw the game.”

Ten Hag admitted that Brentford was better, but he still ignored the way they played throughout the 90-plus minutes. Ten Hag said, "Brentford were better than us today. They showed more passion, desire and determination as we did. The quality of this team is they fight for it, but we have to show more. We scored the goal but then threw it off the line.”
