Brentford 1-1 Manchester United: What Ten Hag said

Erik ten Hag spoke to BBC MOTD after Manchester United's draw with Brentford: "We were winning in the end, maybe it wasn't deserved but then you have to take the three points so the it is very disappointing to draw the game.

"Brentford were better than us today. They showed more passion, desire and determination as we did. The quality of this team is they fight for it, but we have to show more. We scored the goal but then threw it off the line."

Is it ever acceptable for other teams to show more passion and desire? "No never. We showed it against Liverpool and in many games. We have to bring it on the pitch. We fought but in the small things, second balls etc, Brentford were more focused and more aggressive and it should be the other way round.

"We were winning, we should compliment the team for that, but then we gave it away and that is very disappointing."

Make getting Champions League place tough? "There are many games to play. Let's take this point. In the end it could be a very good point."
