After a slow start of the season Manchester United are getting back to back win in the Premier League, Ten Hag has revealed the reason behind their form.

Manchester United manager Erik Ten Hag has revealed the reason behind his team run of form following a poor start to the campaign.

Manchester United suffered two defeats in two games at the beginning of the Premier League with Brighton getting a 2-1 win at Old Trafford and Brentford putting four goals past United defense.

The Red Devils got a 3-1 win against Arsenal side who were unbeaten in five games before their visit to Old Trafford.

United have now got 4 wins in a row and Ten Hag has believes the changes came around because he demands a lot from his players.

“There is a process”, Ten Hag said when asked about change since Brentford. “You have to lift. Everyday, high standards. That is my demands, my coaches’ demands. And I think also the players in our team have those demands.

“There are already many players in the team who have won a lot of trophies, and they had to bring that into the dressing room. Everyday, get the best out of you, and we demand that from each other.”

Speaking about the game at Old Trafford Ten Hag claims they started the game well but the cancelled goal made the lose composure.

“I thought our start was really good. I think it was the best [first] ten minutes until now. We were really dominant in the opponents’ half. And then the cancelled goal from a little break, we had a little bit of losing composure and that’s not necessary.

“We have to get in the game, keep going, play our game and everyday we learn that. And as you saw, there was a good team on the pitch, good team spirit. Also with pressing, maybe not always the good routines, but they [the players] fought, they recovered. Arsenal created chances, but I think we also did, especially on the break. We scored great goals.”

After United got a goal through new signing Antony Arsenal began to dominate the game and created lot of chances but the Dutch insists he was not worried as the defense were capable of dealing with the threat.

“Yes [but] worried is a big word”, United manager said. I know our defending line can deal with that. But I know they have a lot of creativity, and I say they have good routines. But we could have done things better. We are not as long together as Arsenal is. And when we get that in, we will be even more comfortable in the game and that is what we have to work for. And that is hard work. So, still a lot of room for improvement.”
