Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag remains optimistic about their chances of securing a top-four finish this season, despite falling further behind Aston Villa and Tottenham. Following the draw against Brentford, where Kristoffer Ajer’s late goal denied United a win, Ten Hag acknowledges the importance of the result in the context of the Champions League race.

Despite Mason Mount seemingly securing a win with a 96th-minute goal, Brentford equalized through Ajer just three minutes later, salvaging a point with their 31st shot of the match. United’s performance was lackluster until the late stages, and Ten Hag believes the point gained could prove valuable in the long run.

When asked about United’s prospects for a top-four finish, Ten Hag expressed confidence, stating, “There are still many games left to play. Points will become more crucial as the season progresses, and while we should have secured three points today, earning one could prove significant in the end. We’ll see how it all unfolds, but every point counts in the race for the top four.”
