The last two months of the year have seen two sides of the coin for Eric Ten Haag. The Manchester United coach also won the Massera Coach’s Award of the English Premier League after winning three consecutive matches in November. However, at the beginning of December, United were again in disarray.

Started the new month with a defeat against Newcastle. United showed signs of a turnaround by beating Chelsea 2-1 at home last week. But in the next match, the ‘Red Devils’ faced disaster again.
United lost 3-0 against Bournemouth at Old Trafford on Saturday night. Ten Haag took full responsibility for such a humiliating defeat at home.

“We didn’t play well as a team,” Ten Haag said at the press conference after United’s disaster. We have to improve.’ Hag has full confidence in the disciples even if the timing is bad, ‘Maybe we lack consistency. But we have the ability to do well in every match.’

The Red Devils went into high spirits against bottom of the points table Bournemouth. But Dominic Solanki stunned the host team at the very beginning of the match at the Theater of Dreams. It was only the fifth minute of the game. Many spectators may not have found their seats properly. English midfielder Lewis Cook’s cross netted Solanki ahead of the visitors.

Bournemouth started the match with new enthusiasm after getting a goal at the beginning. One attack after another kept United’s defense busy. In the 24th minute of the match, the guests got the ball in the net once again. But that goal was canceled due to offside.

United stepped up their attack in the second half to turn around. But in every attack, the hosts are sitting on the opposite goal. In the 68th minute of the match, Danish star Phillip Billing made the scoreline 2-0 with an extension by English left winger Marcus Tavernier. Another goal five minutes later. This time again the source of the goal is Tavernier. The final nail in United’s coffin was Argentine 26-year-old defender Marcos Senesi.

Two defeats in three matches in the Premier League. There is also the fear of being knocked out of the Champions League. The United boss also highlighted the way out of such a disaster, ‘The reality is, we have to improve as a team. We must be one. We have to give our best from the beginning of the match.’

“I said it on Friday (the day before the match), to play in this league (EPL) you have to play at your best,” Ten Haag said. Otherwise you cannot survive. That happened today. We made it easy for them by digesting the shell in five minutes.’

Hug can’t accept falling behind in the beginning, but still takes the responsibility of the loss on his own shoulders, ‘It is not acceptable to digest the goal so easily. But I take the responsibility on my shoulders. We have to prepare for the next match. The way we started, I’m really disappointed.’

A 3-0 defeat at home saw United miss out on a chance to go one step up in the points table. Ten Haag’s students are sixth in the list with 27 points in 16 matches. On the other hand, Bournemouth, who destroyed the Red Devils, rose to 13th in the list with 19 points in the match.

United’s match against Bayern Munich in the Champions League next Tuesday. If they lose in that match, Ten Haag’s disciples will not play in the Champions League or even in the Europa League this season.
