Erik Ten Hag believes the should more clinical with the remaining games as he also insists lack of focus cost them in the game against Brighton.

Manchester United manager Erik Ten Hag believes they didn’t convert their chances against Brighton with cost them the match last night.

The host claim a last minute winner against the Red Devils following a hand ball in the box by Luke Shaw which resulted to a penalty.

Speaking after the game Ten Hag stated that they lost focus in the game but wants his side to utilize their chances going forward in the League.

“I think in the first minute that we created a great chance, but we didn’t score. So we have to be more clinical on our chances we produce in the first half and then in the attack, we concede then and we give away a big chance. And also in the end, we gave away a goal and that can’t happen, must not happen.

“It maybe a little bit [lack of] focus, but we were also a bit unlucky because it was never a free-kick where the corner is coming from. So yeah, and then you can’t bounce back anymore. But that is what we have to do on Sunday.

“We had clear chances with Antony dos Santos, Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Casemiro. They all create opportunities and one has to be in. I don’t have concerns.

“It’s about keeping the focus and we shouldn’t lose the focus in the final and dying seconds of the game. Then we take that point and, in the end, if you can’t win it because you don’t finish your chances, then don’t lose.”

Meanwhile, Ten Hag fumes at the officiating last night as he says they were so many bad tackles that was ignored by the referee.

“I’ve seen that it is handball and maybe he is out of balance. Maybe he got a push from the back, but I can’t see because there are so many players in [the way].

“My anger is about the free-kick before, because it was never a free-kick [against Shaw on Enciso] and there was so many bad tackles tonight where there was not a whistle. But that is nothing. It’s a fair block and that’s a whistle.”
