Manchester United lacked belief in derby thrashing – Erik ten Hag



Manchester City v Manchester United – Premier League – Etihad Stadium

Erik ten Hag blamed a lack of belief for Manchester United’s ‘hammering’ in Sunday’s 6-3 derby demolition at Manchester City.

After bouncing back from alarming defeats to Brighton and Brentford with four successive Premier League wins, the Red Devils were brought down to earth with a bump at the Etihad Stadium.

Erling Haaland and Phil Foden both scored a hat-trick as City went wild in the top-scoring Manchester derby.

Substitute Anthony Martial’s brace completed a superb second-half strike from Antony’s summer signing for United, but a number of fed up visiting fans had already headed for the exits by then.
