Ten Hag: We are happy to defeat a really good Arsenal team

Manchester United gaffer, Erik Ten Hag says he is very happy to win his fourth Premier League game on the bounce after ending Arsenal’s unbeaten start to the season with a 3-1 win at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Debutant Antony set Manchester United on their way to a rousing win

The £85m summer signing was thrown straight into the starting lineup at the first available opportunity following his deadline day move from Ajax, and he immediately endeared himself to his new fans with the opening goal 10 minutes before half time.

Bukayo Saka deservedly restored parity for the visitors on the hour mark, but they were level for only six minutes before Marcus Rashford restored his side’s lead.

The England international then doubled his personal tally to end the game with two goals and an assist, sealing a fourth consecutive win for his side to lift them up to fifth in the Premier League table.

“We are happy and satisfied with the win, also the performance against a really good team – they played really well.

‘The spirit from this team, they can deal with setbacks so we did, it is really great and shows your mentality – we have really improved on that.

‘We have the right characters and now it is about cooperation, deal with set backs but also improve – we have to stay calm, stay composed and play our game,’ said Ten Hag after the game.

The Red Devils are now only the third side in Premier League history to win four in a row after losing their opening two in a season, after Tottenham in 2011-12 and Arsenal in 2018-19.
