Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has commented on his team’s 1-0 loss to Newcastle United at St. James Park in the Premier League on Saturday, December 2, 2023.

Ten Hag expressed his belief that his team, which has already suffered six losses in 14 rounds of the 2023/24 season, has a well-choreographed plan and is determined to achieve its goals.

“This team is resilient. We have a plan and we keep going. I will talk with my team, but we stayed in the game at the end. We had some good chances,” Ten Hag told TNT, as quoted by Fabrizio Romano.
