Manchester United continue their winning streak and makes it five wins in a row. Man United are still in the 6th position of the Premier League table but are on 44 points. Their next three games are against Fulham, Nottingham Forest in the 5th round of the FA Cup, and Manchester City. Man United manager Erik Ten Hag spoke after the game and discussed how the win was good for their objectives, but the performance could have been better.

Ten Hag spoke about allowing Luton Town to attack them and failing to convert big chances to win the game comfortably. Ten Hag said, "It was very good, but then we had big chances to score more. We dropped too deep and allowed them to get back in the game. We didn't close the half spaces. It got difficult. We had big chances in the second half, and we didn't take them. We should have scored in the second half with Bruno, Garnacho, and Rashford. One has to go in, and then you make your life easy. We kept them in the game. We are dropping too deep, and we lost a bit of focus, maybe because it was so easy in the first 10 minutes. We can't afford this, especially against a side like Luton. They have really upped their trend in the last few weeks."

Ten Hag believes the team is back in the fight for Champions League spots after the past four wins in the Premier League. Ten Hag said, "I think we are back in the race, and we are building momentum. We need to build pressure. Every game is a final to get closer to them."

When asked if the player meant the second goal, he said, "I did mean it, 100%. You can see I turned my body, and it went in. I was surprised, to be honest. I have a lot of confidence at the moment."
