The United boss praised his team’s performance despite a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Arsenal and aired his grievances with the referee’s decisions that he says cost them the game.
Ten Hag claimed that Garnacho’s 88th-minute strike should have stood as VAR had the wrong angle while making the decision. He also stated that a foul on debutant Hojlund should have ended in a penalty for the Red Devils.
The Dutch manager said: “I thought we played a very good game but everything went against us. It was not offside [for Garnacho]. It was the wrong angle. It was a penalty on Hojlund, then we concede a goal that’s a foul on Jonny Evans – clear and obvious.”

The Gunners staged an epic comeback to win the crucial Premier League clash at Emirates Stadium. Marcus Rashford handed the visitors the lead in the 27th minute but it was cancelled out almost immediately thanks to Martin Odegaard’s equaliser. Declan Rice and Gabriel Jesus then scored in injury time to seal three points for their side minutes after Garnacho’s goal was disallowed.
The Red Devils will next face Brighton in the Premier League on September 16 after the international break is over.
