EPL: Why Man Utd drew 2-2 with Bournemouth – Ten Hag

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has reflected on their 2-2 draw with Bournemouth in Saturday’s late kick-off.

The Red Devils came into the game following their 2-2 draw last weekend with Liverpool.

But they went behind to Dominic Solanke’s low finish before Bruno Fernandes equalised.

However, United went into the break behind, as Justin Kluivert fired past Andre Onana at his near post.

Fernandes also drew his team level from the penalty spot.

Ten Hag, speaking to BBC Match of the Day, said: “We know we have to win. We want to battle, to compete for the top positions. You see the game, we struggled in the first half, [Harry] Maguire was struggling but he overcame it because we needed him to.

“The second half was much better; the good thing is we fought back twice from a losing position. The team spirit is good. By the end, it could’ve been more composed and calm and we could’ve played more chances out.

“The opponent was struggling because they gave so much energy in the first half and there were so many gaps but we didn’t benefit from it.”
