Erik ten Hag reveals how Man United victory over Bournemouth was ‘lucky’
Erik ten Hag explains how Man Utd win over Bournemouth was ‘lucky’.
Erik ten Hag has revealed why Manchester United’s 3-0 victory over Bournemouth was not the Red Devils’ “best game,” claiming that his team was “lucky” at times.
Casemiro, Luke Shaw, and Marcus Rashford scored for Manchester United on Tuesday night at Old Trafford as they cruised to their third straight Premier League victory.
In winning the game, Ten Hag’s side went to within just one point of inner-city rivals Manchester City in the Premier League table – something that seemed pretty impossible six months ago.
Despite the win, speaking to the press after the game Ten Hag noted that he wasn’t particularly pleased with his side’s performance.

“I am happy with 3-0, that is obvious and quite clear but today was not our best game. We didn’t play smart as a team and sometimes we were lucky,” he said.
“We scored great goals and should have scored more. We could have conceded too but great saves from David de Gea, I am not happy with that. It is something we have to avoid.”
The Man Utd manager also gave an update on Donny van de Beek’s health after the midfielder had to leave the game before halftime due to what appeared to be an injury. According to Ten Hag, the player would undergo testing on Wednesday to determine the full degree of his injuries because it was “not looking good.”
